A beach club might not be what first springs to mind when you think of Swansea, but once you set foot inside the tropical-themed Bambu Bar, you’ll forget you’re not somewhere more exotic.

Choose something delicious from the extensive cocktail menu and enjoy it served in a tiki cup or giant conch shell. Or maybe try the Dead Man’s Chest, designed to be shared by ten people and never to be attempted alone!
