Probably the best bar in Cardiff
Dan Porter’s eponymous bar is Cardiff's newest drinking den. As a still young (though now retired) actor, Dan hoped this leap from one ridiculous profession to another (host at his own bar) will provide him with the happiness and stability he has been missing all of his professional life. Though inexperienced and terrified, he and co-conspirator David used their combined knowledge of the arts and event experience to create a unique style of entertainment and customer service-led venue.
Porter’s has entertainment and good times at its heart; Dan describes his vision as ‘old fashioned but inherently cool’, it’s a place for a cosy drink or a roaring knees up. With its own adjoined theatre (The Other Room) and a stage by the bar where patrons are open to gather and have a merry sing-a-long around the ‘ol joanna. Porter’s is an unpretentious, welcoming and familiar home for like minded people of Cardiff, frequented not only by actors, arts-types, drama students and theatre lovers but anyone looking for good old-fashioned fun and a good drink.
