Our Story

The Bootlegger.

Est. 01.03.2014

29,307 days after prohibition ended, The Bootlegger Family opened their doors in their first bar on Gloucester Road in Bristol. Since then the family have carried on its journey heading west, opening it’s doors at the top of Womanby Street in Cardiff, back to where the minds who conceived the idea grew up. Unlike the days when an environment containing these things would be banned, you can enjoy them here, without fear of incarceration or fine. Our espresso martinis and sours are drinks of legend, as are the rest of our beautifully crafted cocktails. Come sample some of the local brews or why not join us at our dedicated gin bar where the selection will be as unique and delightful as we are.

Just like when the prohibition of alcohol ended, on the 5th December, 1933 when the 21st Amendment repealed the 18th Amendment making liquor legal again - people danced animated, partied where the music was slammin’ together reveled - we encapsulate that energy today, here and now for your enjoyment with live music and in-house DJ playing swing, blues, jazz and rock ’n roll.

We play the best music, from the best times, with the best drinks, for the best company and patriots of the Bootlegger bars.

Welcome to the Bootlegger; The Family, The Movement, The Place.

The Bootlegger Family.
