Yale Cafe Bar / Central Station (Wrexham)
Advantages: Great live bands in an intimate atmosphere
Disadvantages: None that I can think of
First let me say that I cannot really comment on what this place is like during the day, as I have only ever been there for gigs and club nights. However I must say that although in general there is little by way of nightspots in Wrexham which makes it different from any other medium size town centre, this is a real gem. The beer is nothing out of the ordinary, but at least the prices aren't ridiculous as with so many late night bars and clubs. The venue consistently draws decent indie bands, although obviously because of its size it is never going to get the real big hitters in that field. However in comparison to the relatively nearby towns of Chester and Shrewsbury, it offers far more, and given that Liverpool and Manchester are not far away, it is a testament to the quality of the venue that bands continue to stop off in Wrexham as well. The sound quality is excellent, and the layout of the stage allows for those who want to get close to be slightly lower than those who prefer to watch from the balcony which rings the dance area/moshpit.
The club nights are also excellent, and although it goes a bit more mainstream on a Saturday night, the fact that it is on two levels means that you can still go out and avoid r 'n' b if you want to! The Redi Nights which act as a showcase for local bands are also well worth a visit once in a while. All in all I would say that Central Station offers loads for the music lovers of that part of the world, and you could do a lot worse than to check it out at some point if you have not already done so.
Summary: Well worth a visit
