Even after dusk, some cities are abuzz with activities. North Wales is one of them, and is known to have the best nightlife in the country. There are plenty of clubs, pubs and spectacular cabarets to help you prolong your night. Here are some activities that visitors should consider partaking in at night.
For the night time adventurers, paddle boarding makes a great sport to try out during the night. Psyched paddleboard, for example, organises retreats and SUP sessions for people visiting the North Wales and other regions like the West Coast of Scotland. Visitors embark on a two-hour trip on the sheltered lake in Snowdonia, which is usually surrounded by lofty peaks under the star-studded sky. If the conditions allow, visitors paddle as far as the Anglesey bay. The paddles have boards installed at the bottom and visitors are advised to wear head torches when paddling.
Night Vision Walks
Rangers looking to explore the forest during the night should consider going for forest holidays that are arranged by the Forest Commission. There are cabins in different regions to allow people to rest after 90-minute walks with rangers. The guests use infrared scopes and bat scanners to identify animals like bats, roe deer, muntjacs, tawny owls, hedgehogs, wild boars and tawny owls.
The Best Nightclubs
The Piranha Club and Lounge
The exterior shows a modest and straightforward place to hang-out. However, it quickly transforms into an energetic nightclub that will get you dancing the entire night. The interior, on the other hand, combines rich stone architecture with blue and red lighting that extends to the lounge area and dance floor. The most exciting feature is the disco ball used to enhance the sound system. Piranha Club opens at 11 p.m. and closes at 3.30 am on Saturday nights.
The Venu, Pwllheli
It is a multi-faceted venue that combines a lounge, restaurant and dancing bar, so you don’t need to look far for a breathtaking night out. The events calendar features a range of activities to accommodate all audiences: from sets by upcoming DJs to internationally-renowned musicians to live acts and the regular classics, dance, chart songs and floor-fillers.
The Dunraven Hotel
Visitors looking to start their night on a high note should visit the Dunraven pub further up the Valley. This family-run pub is a favourite hang-out spot for both young and older adults. It hosts a live artist every Friday where all the regulars dance to some old school songs till 11 p.m.
The New Inn
Take a taxi down to Ton Pentre where you will find the New Inn. The pub fills up from 9 p.m. when the band starts to perform, but visitors should consider arriving early enough to avoid paying an entry fee. Friday and Saturday night performances are the best. The pub also has a Thirsty Thursday where visitors enjoy cheap pints.
It is the best pub for people looking to dance all night long. It attracts a relatively young crowd thanks to the new music genre played- techno and chart music.
