The Thriving Wrexham Venue That's Proving A Hit With Indie And Football Fans Alike


For years I've been telling any poor soul who'll listen to me that what North Wales needs is a good indie bar. As someone who loves bands like Oasis, the Stone Roses, The Verve amongst others- I've often bemoaned the fact that we haven't got a dedicated pub/bar to showcase the greatest genre of music ever invented (in my opinion of course).

Well now we have. The Parish used to be called the Cambrian Vaults which was more of a traditional drinkers pub but now is a thriving live music venue which also shows live sport.

Situated on Town Hill in the heart of Wrexham town centre, the bar has become hugely popular not just with fans of rousing indie anthems but also football fans with many supporters making their way there after home matches at the Racecourse.

It isn't just for the parka-wearing Liam Gallagher loving types like myself though, an eclectic mix of people socialise there. The combination of reasonably-priced drinks and great atmosphere attracts all sorts of people - young and old, male and female.

The live music events are almost always well-attended. Popular indie band The Sherlocks played to a good crowd there recently as well as hometown favourites the Declan Swans who are rightly worshipped in this part of the world.

They tend to do great drinks offers on live music nights also with pints of lager only setting you back around £3 whilst there is a wide selection of bottled beer, cider, wine and cocktails also. The Parish is open until around 2am on weekends as well so you can dance the night away whilst hugging and singing along with strangers to your favourite indie tunes until the small hours (or perhaps that's just me).
