Bogiez nightclub, which has been going in Cardiff since the early 80's and has quite a substantial following in Cardiff, has announced it will be moving venues to the former Cardiff Barfly venue on Kingsway, Cardiff.
News on the Bogiez main website has quite a build up to what to expect asaying: "It's something we've wanted to do for many, many years, but we've never wanted to rest on our laurels. We wanted the right venue at the right time and in the right location. The stars have alligned and that time is now!
So, from February, Bogiez will be located on the Kingsway, in a building many of you will already know, that of the former Cardiff Barfly, and boy can we tell you that we are already banging our heads with excitement over this venture. The South Wales rock and metal scene has been crying out for a truly dedicated rock bar that's for the rockers, run by rockers and without any trendy management interfering with a night of pure rock fury for as long as we can remember and Bogiez is finally in the position to make this happen, and we are absolutely over the moon about it (and hope you can join us in being so)."
After contacting Bogiez, there are some interesting changes to take place from what is currently known of Barfly and Bogiez club nights.
The new club venue is going to look significantly different to Barfly with the interior currently being re-modelled in order to accommodate more people and make the venue physically bigger. A change from the Barfly we all knew is that the focus of the venue will no longer be live music but Bogiez will have bands on. The primary intention is going to be an array of rock/metal/alternative club nights throughout the week with the Bogiez club night as it is right now becoming a weekly Saturday fixture. The current site does lead us to believe we should expect a bit more in the future saying, "Live bands? Hell Yeah! Open Mic nights? Just try to stop us! Specialist evenings and a DJ roster of faces you know, faces you once knew and faces you will know? The biggest Zombie breakout of all time couldn't stop us!".
