Cute beach bar with cocktails served in sand castle buckets! Upstairs is outdoor and always really busy, lots going on but expensive for drinks and don't take contactless or apple pay

Bambu is a unique, vibrant and friendly bar. Its beach theme makes you feel like you are on holiday. There are three floors (the top one is closed sometimes) where they play different types of music. The top two floors are outside where you can dance, smoke and drink in the heated lamps to a brilliant, skilled DJ. If you're lucky you might even get a free flower necklace. The only thing is is that there is no cloakroom. Especially the fact it is winter now, us ladies can't be walking around in our little dresses; we wear coats. Also the men don't wanna get all sweaty dancing in their coats. So we need somewhere to put these coats when we go into a bar/club. Most bars/clubs do have cloakrooms. I had a coat with me the other night and I asked the bar staff if they have anywhere I can leave it and they obviously told me they don't have anywhere. However, one lovely member of staff offered to keep it in the storage room for me. They have a good selection of alcohol and also serve magnificant cocktails. Drink costs are average, but worth it for the down to earth, chill vibes at Bambu!

An amazing night with a great aesthetic, there’s always a wide range of music, sometimes there’s certain genre nights too which is ideal . A wide variety of drinks at good prices and cheap entry to get inside.

The venue is great, it has an open terrace with heat and all that stuff at the top and it also has a closed dance floor at the bottom. It’s all themed very tropical. Last Friday I spent out in swansea and went to bambú to the spanish night ( I’m spanish ) the atmosphere was great, music was amazing. There was all kinds of people there. Absolutely loved it!!

Good music, cool roof terrace although could do with better heating when cold! The DJ’s are normally really good with different ones each week it mixes it up

Great place for cocktails and drinks. Dance floor is okay, rooftop is the main highlight! They have blankets for when it gets cold too. Wednesday night deals are good, buckets are good value for money.

Good music and good venue, little bit different from all the other bars on the street. Always a good vibe.

Super student friendly, especially on wednesdays (student night) where they do deals on buckets! Rooftop terrace with DJ throughout the year as well

Bambu is a great night out. The staff are super friendly and clearly love what they do. Both the upstairs and downstairs bars are relatively cheap and you can get served almost immediately. It is one of the best nights out in Swansea, I would definitely recommend.

Can be expensive to get in sometimes, but when you are in you tend to stay in there for a while! Really good cocktails, which are made in buckets (to fit with the beach theme of the bar) which go down nicely. The theme runs throughout the entire club and creates a very nice atmosphere for going out and for catching up with friends.

Bambu is always a great place to go on student night. The music is always the perfect mix between classics and new songs. My favourite drinks are the beach buckets of cocktails that are all perfectly themed with the rest of the venue. They're only £4 on student nights, which is an absolute bargain. The bar staff are always super friendly too.

Definitely one of my favourite places to visit! Entry is pretty standard £3, the music on the bottom floor isn't really my thing but the top floor which also doubles as a smoking area has banging music! To make it better, they literally serve sandbuckets full of a cocktail of your choice, for a very reasonable £5. Overall vibe is pleasant and staff are OK. Super student friendly place for a night out

class night out, typical student nightlife. Good music, amazing cocktails and ofc the two toilet cubicle is every girl groups dream.

My favourite bar on wind street. A place to dance a place to chat and a place to smoke if that’s what’s suited. Outside DJ decks in the summer under a warm sat lit night. What more do you want?

Funky tunes and Hawaii vibe, gets the people dancing, very good DJ and the rooftop is just absolute bouncing every time I go in there! Always look forward to going there

The atmosphere is pretty good when it’s not too busy. I really like the upstairs area which is really beautifully decorated. Very freindsly to students they have offers. The music is up my street and it’s not too expensive to get in. The drinks could be a little cheaper

Good buckets on a Wednesday which’s are also cheap but not very much alcohol or value for money , heated terrace upstairs with live dj with techno on a Wednesday which can be quite repetitive so they could improve by getting different music upstairs , friendly staff and bouncers

Friendly to students on student night, which are Monday and Wednesday, with good music and competitive drinks prices. However, often too expensive on weekend, hence why it's empty of students.

Best music in Swansea in Bambu and you’re guaranteed a class crowd! Can party inside or on the rooftop which is awesome

I don't always go out but whenever I go out normally prefer this bar since I like this venue. I love anything that related to summer and the theme of this bar is perfect for me, feel like I am actually in a beach bar somewhere outside the UK. The drinks are nothing special though I would prefer they have more topical kind of cocktail, the price is average.
