Bar 45 Opening Times


You'll find us tucked away behind Cardigan Castle, on St Mary Street, Cardigan

Gin, Cocktails, Bottled Beers and Good Wine

Tucked away down St Mary Street, behind historic Cardigan Castle, you'll find our west Wales gin bar, Bar 45. A cosy, intimate space, join us for drinks by the fire in the winter, or spread into the courtyard garden on finer days!

We offer a range of cocktails, gin, vodka and rum from In the Welsh Wind distillery, a selection of locally brewed beers and fine wines.

Food at Bar 45

We offer a range of seasonal and where possible local 'Welsh plates' to nibble on while you're with us at Bar 45 Cardigan. Locally sourced cheeses, charcuterie, home made hummus with crostini from our friends at Bara Menyn.

We also have great coffee and tea available throughout the day.

Supper Clubs at Bar 45

Throughout the summer we are holding a series of Wednesday Supper Clubs - whether Clwb Swper Aberteifi, hosted by the Bar 45 team, and using fresh, locally sourced produce and the Courtyard Garden woodfired oven, or guest chefs and producers. Keep an eye on the Events section of our Facebook page, and our Instagram for details.

Look up to the DJ

Saturdays often see us hosting local DJs at Bar 45. Our mezzanine level offers the perfect DJ booth, leaving the floor available for dancing!

For details of what's coming up, check out our Facebook Events section, and Instagram.

Cardigan's only dedicated gin and cocktail bar, Bar 45 serves spirits craft distilled at In the Welsh Wind distillery - gins from the In the Welsh Wind and Eccentric Spirits ranges, vodkas and rums. Working with a mixologist, we offer a carefully curated selection of cocktails which feature our spirits. For those who prefer beer or cider, we have a variety of locally brewed and bottled options from Bluestone Brewing Co, Mantle Brewery and Tenby Brewing Co, and Hansh Cider. We also stock a range of wines from Domaine Des Jeanne in the Luberon, France.

Alongside our cocktails, we offer a carefully curated range of 'Welsh plates' - local cheeses, charcuterie, a range of vegetarian/vegan treats, alongside great coffee from Bay Coffee Roasters.
