/ Plas y Brenin in the evenings
Go down the Tyn y Coed...I'm there most nights!
Is that the one with the stage coach outside?
That's the one...cracking pub.
Not sure when you'll be up here but we've got an open mic night at Siabod Cafe on the 15th of March. The last one was a brilliant night so worth coming along to if you're in the area ;)
Thanks, I'll bear it in mind.
Certainly second the tyn-y, great food and a good whisky shelf. I more often than not stop there myself when not camping
PyB has nice beer but it's really quite. It depends on what courses are running, but some nights there are no more than 5 people in there. There's a video loop playing of various MTB, Ski or kayak stuff, but after an hour or so, you've seen all of it.
However, there are occasional presentations which are really good, a list of which is posted in the foyer. Don't know if the same info is on the website though, sorry.
The presentations are by staff, involve some great adventures and are free.
They've just extended the whiskey shelf too...nearly 50 malts up there now!
Or hitch up to the Pen-y-Gwyrd for some old school cosyness!
I love that place - fond memories having stayed there fairly regularly since I was very small.
Im not so familiar with whats on around Betws/Capel (but yep Tyn y Coed is a goodun). If you have transport then there is stuff further afield: Occasional Cinema at Bluesky (bangor) and Caban (Brynrefail),
climbing wall DJ nights or climb n grub on Tuesdays at the Indy and at the Beacon respectively.
Science café and gigs at the Bluesky, gigs at the Vic (Menai Bridge). Bits and bobs at the Heights in Llanberis (art get togethers, used to be salsa I think), along with other stuff.
Oh, and everything on the Pontio programme, Bangor
Nearest multiplex cinema is Llandudno, and there are decent local pools/sports centres at Llandudno and Bangor (loads of smaller leisure centres, check on Gwynedd or Conwy website for details).
And obviously really good mountain and road biking, and walks and bouldering and climbing birding etc etc etc on PyB doorstep.
