Being over half way through my second year of university I am making it my mission to make the most out of my uni experience so that I can graduate and be completely satisfied with how I spent my 3 years in Cardiff. One thing I've started to do is attempt to visit different club nights instead of doing the usual Lash night at the Student Union (which I'm guilty of visiting almost every week).

I started my mission by purchasing a ticket to see a drum and bass DJ Kove at the Vaults on the advice of my housemate Mary- resident party Queen. Check out her awesome blog here. The Vaults is a really cool underground club in Cardiff Bay right next to the house where they film MTV's The Valleys. During the night we managed to get into the house and got given a tour by the current occupants. For a reality TV addict like me it was very exciting to say the least, I felt like a kid in a candy store. I put on my best welsh accent and pretended I was being filmed cooking my breakfast (how sad am I?!). I also made it on to the show this week (picture below). Anyway back to the Vaults; it is a club that has been transformed from a bank vault into a very cool club. It is even equipped with it's own cinema room that plays cartoons if you fancy a break from skanking away. Sadly, the cinema was not open the night that we visited. All in all it was an amazing night although the drinks were a little expensive, but me and my housemate Tash discovered that if you worked hard enough you could work the price down. Unfortunately my night was cut a little short when Tash fell down the stairs and had to be taken to A&E in an ambulance but that's a whole other blog post! 

The following Friday night I attended club night Team Up (formely known as Pop Bubble Rock) for the first time after some forceful persuading from two course mates, both of them also have blogs which are both well worth a read, check them out here; Reen's blog and Liam's blog. In the end I was so glad they convinced me out as it was such a good night fueled by hours of dancing and taxi rides with my favourite welsh man Mike. Bunker houses two main rooms- one plays cheesy pop all night while the other plays rock... a very eclectic mix but it just seems to work.

On a side note, we also discovered that we can access our roof through my housemate's bedroom so when the sun came out to play on Sunday we decided to make Sex on the beach cocktails in a teapot (who says students aren't resourceful?) and sunbathe on the roof.

What are your favourite club nights? Any tips for me on what to do in Cardiff?
