Cellar Door Cardiff review

Cellar Door is held at The Vaults on Bute Street. Picture by Raw Talent Photography.

New Cardiff club night Cellar Door was launched at The Vaults in Bute Street last month. yourCardiff guest blogger Chris Sutherwood was at the most recent night, and explains why it is helping to revive Cardiff’s dance scene.

Sat June 9 @The Cellar Door with The Undercover DJ’s 

Underground House & Techno

Cellar Door is a relatively new club night in Cardiff held every four weeks. I was lucky enough to be at both nights which have been held so far, and can safely say that Cardiff’s dance scene is experiencing a revival with the help of this night.

Being in my early 30s, I was lucky enough to experience Cardiff when it was at its peak with club nights such as Time Flies in Emporium and, without a doubt, the best club ever in Cardiff, The Hippo Club.

Cardiff has seen a bit of a lull of late regarding the dance scene but a group of promoters have come together to bring back the vibe that has been missing within the city, and this is totally different to the old days when promoters would be competing against each other to get bodies through the door.

The Cellar Door’s ethos is simple; use what local talent Cardiff has on its doorstep and make sure that the RIGHT people are in the venue – people who care about the scene and want to experience hedonism.

I’d like to think that the guys at Cellar Door are onto something great here, with a 12K sound system, three bars, a cinema chillout area showing retro cartoons and friendly staff on the doors and bars.

This night is not about booking an expensive well known DJ. The promoters recognise that if they did this, the charge would be passed on to the clubbers and it has been proved recently, with other venues, that people aren’t willing to pay extortionate entrance fees.

I spoke to a couple of people about what they thought of the night, with one of the main highlights being the chillout area which was fantastic; everyone enjoyed the retro cartoons sat on church-like benches (with cushions).

There was a good mixture of people at the event, from students to local people. Everyone I spoke to had a fantastic evening, and said they will all be back on July 7 when Cellar Door returns for Part 3.

Tickets are sold on Fatsoma and are sold as Early Birds. Creating a buzz at £10, you need to get in there quick before they sell-out.

For further info, visit their Facebook page, or follow them on Twitter @CellarDoorCardf. You can also check taster mixes from some of their recent nights on Soundcloud.

    if you know the SCENE in cardiff (wales) you would have know this is not a new night,,cellar door is merely taking someone else’s idea and capitolizing on it, i am 33 and was and still is, heavily involved in the cardiff music scene regardless of what music or genre…cellar door has’nt and is not reviveing no scene in cardiff…BACKROOM were responsable for bringing the house/dance/rave scene in cardiff/s.wales back to life….this sadens and sickens me to think all the hard work they/we have put in for other people to come and take the glory and if they are using local talent why havent i been aproached??? seen as i’ve had two records out with CATAPULT and getting support from all over the world?? that’s local talent is’nt it?? plus if asked i wouldn’t play for them anyway out of principal….i stand firm with the current house promotion’s in cardiff which are BACKROOM,DELETE,MEMOREX,CITY BASS who promote current/up to date dj’s/producers to push the scene further in cardiff/s.wales.

    Reviving? Have a word! Not an original idea between the people who run this night!

    Do you actually have any clue about the current dance music scene in Cardiff, or are you just writing words for the sake of it?

    Saying that these guys are looking after their punters by charging ten pound entry for local DJ's is a complete insult to some nights in Cardiff- Majority of nights I attend are around 6/7 pound for entry and they usually give you a headliner or two as well for that price.

    Cardiff's dance scene is pretty strong given that it's not got the population that other major cities have, and to suggest that a promotion which has been running for 2 months is to thank for this is idiotic, Backroom's made the venue what it was and gave it the reputation for being the best night out in Cardiff, I doubt very much people would be paying ten pound to go and watch local DJ's in there if this reputation had not been created. This is probably the worst article I've read, congrats Media Wales for continuing to publish such utter drivel!

    What a joke of a review! How you can claim a night that has been running for 2 events has revived the scene is beyond me???? Are you forgetting who actually first started putting on proper underground techno nights in there! This review is an insult to the hard work put in by the likes of Backroom, Delete and Memorex!

    This night has done nothing what so ever, for a scene that has been thriving for the last few years.
    Junk, absolute joke and I can't believe this has been published!?

    In my opinion this blog post does a massive disservice to several promotions in Cardiff who over the last 2-3 years have put in a huge amount of work! Promoters such as Backroom, Delete, Memorex, City Bass, System 909 and Obey have all put on quality nights with top bookings and a real awareness of keeping the door charge as low as possible for the punters.
    There is a real sense of community among these promoters and all have proved their ability to maintain a long standing foothold in the city.
    Cardiff at the moment has an incredibly exciting, vibrant and diverse club scene that in my time in the city is the strongest its ever been.. Sweeping statements such as "Cardiff has seen a bit of a lull of late regarding the dance scene but a group of promoters have come together to bring back the vibe that has been missing within the city" just prove to show how out of touch Chris Sutherwood is with the current scene.
    In future please check the credentials of your blog writers as its plain to see Chris Sutherwood has neither the vitamins nor the minerals….

    £10 with no headliner is a good deal?
    Weren't Backroom bringing in some of the best techno DJs in the world for that price? If you're going to cash in on the back of someone elses ideas at least have the decency to pay them some props, not try and pass it off as your own brainwave.
    Where has Chris Sutherwood been for the last few years if he thinks this is a new and exciting venture?
    Waste night, waste review…

    Think Chris's point has been clearly made…!!! "is totally different to the old days when promoters would be competing against each other to get bodies through the door" instead of supporting each other and keeping the scene fresh, people seem to want to kill it by slagging other nights off, this is the whole reason the scene died down in the first place….!!!! Having been to events run by All the named above (which most of the above commenter's clearly haven't) The two nights are completely different…different vibe, different atmosphere, different approach and a different out looks…!!! I think you should all try before you start slagging off a night you haven't even been to…!!

    I'm going to spell this out for you :

    We don't need reviving : we were doing perfectly well without you.

    Cardiff was looking stronger that it ever has before Cellar Door came along, and their arrival has done nothing to help anyone but themselves.

    you are undermining the hard work done the good people who have kept this alive for so long.

    Yes we are a new united Cardiff but you are obviously no part of it.

    The idea's you believe are new are just souless copies of those who have come before.

    Please do not insult the culture by publishing any more of this.

    I'm not sure why this is Backrooms vs. Cellar Door. Jesus, it's a club night. Is all this animosity and sour grapes really necessary? Kind of funny how none of it seems to be coming from Cellar Door.

    Almost every complaint on this page doesn't really have valid reasoning behind it, apart from the entry fee argument. I'm more than happy to pay £13.50 to listen to emerging & established house & tech DJs until 5 in the morning in a friendly atmosphere and a night that only runs once a month. If you're not, don't pay the entry fee and don't go. Simple as.

    £12,000 system ??? Hmmm… That's enough money to supply sound for a medium/large scale festival.

    • Marshy June 14, 2012 at 6:58 pm - Reply

      I think they mean £12,000 to buy… To give a rough idea the system that Backoom put in would cost around £35000+ . £12000 is peanuts for a sound system

      • Jake June 15, 2012 at 7:11 am - Reply

        Why would they buy a sound system when it costs around £600 to hire in 9k hk audio of sound which is more than a enough to power the vaults, but I know what you are saying Marshy, to buy is expensive but you would only buy one if your were planning on a permanent fixture, and to be honest nothing stays permanent in Cardiff for long, so for them to say they bought in a £12,000 is a load of nonsense and yet another lie ( excuse to put on high door charges ) so they don't feel so guilty ripping their punters off, I am not going to even bother ranting on about cd I have seen it all before and Cardiff is not exactly the beating heart of the underground , Br had a great thing going also they are a great bunch of people without snobberish attitude towards music, just a huge shame that venues like this falls into the wrong hands.

    Surely if all the above are doing so well, then there's no need for them to worry about something new happening…! How can you say that all cellar door's ideas have been stolen, if you've never attended one of their nights…????? As for the headliners…That's where the clubbing scene started going down the pan…I'd rather spend my hard earned cash on going to an awesome venue with LOCAL SOUTH WALES TALENT rather than one headlinear and the same DJ's over and over…!!!

    Repost from what i put on facebook: Not one to get invloved in all the drama and politics with nights out in cardiff but i think this blog post is really naughty, as a clubber and someone who is out most weekends there has certanily been no lul in cardiffs dance scene recently trust me, my bank and worrying mother and friends will tell you! Backroom,Delete,Memorex,CityBass and many more have been doing there thing bringing amazing talent to Cardiff and are all supporters of eachothers nights! In the last two years i have met some amazing people and some life long friends and think this blog post is a disgrace to the people that have made that happen!

    How has it insulted them? This is an opinion blog. Just because it hasn't mentioned every single good night that's ever existed in Cardiff doesn't automatically equate to a slap in the face.

    You mentioned during, before and after, but how is there going to be an after if every new club night is going to have to endure constant mud-slinging by people who don't seem to have any valid reasoning behind their hate? Just to make it clear to everyone who seems to think otherwise, this article wasn't written by Cellar Door.

    Guys, just for the record. Cellar Door didn't write this post or blog. We are not connected with this person and his views and comments are his own. We understand completely that everyone has love for certain nights. The fact that you are prepared to dis his comments in such a strong way proves this. He is merely commenting on his experience as indeed you are. We are happy to hear everyones comments and our doors are always open to everyone for a happy fun night of clubbing including all the other promoters across Cardiff.
    At the end of the day…It's all about the party! Peace.

    Cellar Door sell their tickets through Catapult. Nobody's stealing anybody's ideas or insulting anyone else. A club night is a club night, they're all equally enjoyable in different ways. It'd be nice if we could live in a world where great music doesn't come hand in hand with drama.

    I do think that it was always going to be the case of the vaults reopening with one promoter or another. It wasnt just going to sit there was it??? Cellar Door have taken the steps to put parties on there and they have been real good parties!!! Yes Backroom were the original occupiers and their parties will go down in history as legendary in the Cardiff club scene but shouldnt Cellar Door be given the opportunity to do the same for the Cardiff community??? Surely theres enough clubbers and good music to go around?!?!?!? I dont think Cellar Door think they are solely reviving the scene because its been back at the forefront for a while now, they just want to put on parties for people and have a good time, same as all other promotoers!!!!

    Cellar door is not an underground night it's just a club give them a break nobody picks on Oceana like this do they? Cellar door is doing wonders for cardiffs teenage clubbers bringing them commercial techno/house ish sounds. Where else would the people who don't like underground nights and proper house and techno go? A lot of people like pop music and they must be catered for also plus I don't want those kind of people clogging up dance floors I use (no offence guys). It's great how they took a raw, unique and totally underground venue and took the time to pretty it up with lovely lights for the young and beautiful crowd that attend. It's not the kind of place where people lose themselves so lasers are a good thing it like adds to the entertainment. And why shouldn't local djs get a chance? Why should we pay for djs who have spent years slogging and forging a career built on raw passion for music? P.s cellar door I am local so when do I get to do a set at your fabulous discotheque?

    no one has really said anything other than:

    they think that cellar door are not responsible for a revival

    @Joel, Maybe you should actually read a post before you call it "bit of a nonsense comment" The point I made was that the above people who are slagging off cellar door haven't attended the night, just looked at a few pics and because they are followers of backrooms, have decided to slag it…!! I'm all for people having an opinion, but atleast have some valid reasons, (apart from entry fee) before you start saying things…!

    • Joel June 15, 2012 at 10:37 am - Reply

      Fair enough my mistake – however I know my comments and other peoples comments on here are not just based on hearsay. The issue being discussed is more so the fact that this article seems to associate the revival of the Cardiff club with Cellar Door – which is not true. Don't think I mentioned ticket price? Although you have to admit that is an expensive tax to see local DJ's?

    There are people involved with cellar door who have been part of the clubbing scene in cardiff for a considerable time, and to say that this night is undermining anyone else's night simply brings cardiff back to what killed it's scene so many years ago. Unecessary, mindless ignorant chatter, that does nothing but harm tha vibe that u are ALL fighting for!!Please take note of the fact that cellar door have not made any wildly inaccurate claims, or suggested made so much as ONE SINGLE remark that could be considered derogatory towards anyone else's efforts.Let's get back to reality and try to remember why we all do what we do, be it dance, dj, promote or just simply reminisce. BECAUSE WE ALL LOVE TO!!Thumbs up to cellar door for not lowering urself to such narrow minded nonsense!!

    Cellar door have got a unique concept, they don't name all there DJ's and pretend to be something they're not. It's just a straight up, good night out, like the old days. The vibe in there is excellent, you don't have to be in a clique, or act cool to go to cellar door and everyone is there to listen to the music and have a good time. That's the way it should be, who cares who's playing?

    As long as the music is good and the crowd is hype. I've been clubbing since the good old days of Martha's (Swansea), Hippo, The Palace, Emporium, etc. Been there done it, and cellar door have hit the nail on the head, good music, good vibes. It's all very childish all this cliquey stuff, we should all be thankful we have such a good scene in a variety of venues in the city. There is space for everyone and variety means people have the choice to go to the event which suits them the most.

    I;ve heard from a few people that they have to charge £10+ a ticket to cover the cost of the venue, which is considerably more expensive than your average club to hire (but so worth it).

    Personally, I prefer the old – school, sweaty, dirty, underground vibes with like minded people as opposed to dressing up and standing around a club nodding my head trying to look cool. Every one has the right to start a night, go to a night, and support a night. To many cliques, if everyone supports each other Cardiff has the variety and talent to rival most big cities.

    I think the guy who wrote this blog should also experience some of the other quality nights in Cardiff and give a more informed view of the scene.

    • Jake June 15, 2012 at 9:00 am - Reply

      Yeah like the old days :-/…. This is one of the reasons why Cardiff goes backwards and filters out crowds, there is a majority few who appreciate good solid music spurred from raw talent and try to push their names out there and bring new things upon Cardiffs dance floor, I cringe when I hear the d&b / hard house / trance etc tag that is being associated with Cardiff for so many years now it's embarrassing, time to grow up and move on and evolve.

    wow this blog took a beatin!
    but in all fairness peeps the problem with cardiff is theres no unity. when someone or a group of people get a idea they run with it straight away and alienate them selfs from any other genre or any person involved in them genres. so if i say right i like house then thats it its house or nothing and so on
    but it shouldnt be that way no matter what music yu into everyone must blend and enjoy the music or genre for what it is. i produce house/dnb/dubstep/uk garage so if i were to go to a house rave i would rave to house simple. i wouldnt alienate my self from the house crew if i didnt like house.
    and i,m able to state this cause i myself have been one of the major factors in dance music in wales since the 80,s myself (marlon b) aka ital-lion and djs like spex /paul lyons/silver and so on worked hard for over 2 decades to help move dance music forward clubs like tom toms/ subways/ and so on
    they moulded what you call the music scene in cardiff today but our vision was not for politics it was for simple and out right raving. so to all you young new music heads please learn a vital lesson dont mix politics with music they just dont work. and as you are all recreating that 80s 90s vibe i,ll let you into a secret when that era was in full flight a lot of you were still watching c-beebies or whatever so take it from some one who was there and still is
    music = vibe/ love / peace / and unity
    so get of this tip guys do yu thing and respect others and only then will cardiff become re-born and be like london/europe and so on
    peace

    I have been around a bit and been to Delete and Backroom and had some great nights. I also went to Cellar Door and had an amazing time. There is a massive difference between what Backroom did at the Vaults and Cellar Door. Backroom was minimal, Cellar Door was much more intense with much more going on, it was like a mini festival. I have never seen a cartoon room in a club! But I loved Backroom too. I am really disappointed to see this attack from nights I have enjoyed and it seems like a bit of a PR disaster for Backroom, Delete etc by showing such animosity. Surely all you should have said was, well done Cellar Door, don’t forget nights like Backroom, Delete and others which are also doing great things for the scene rather than all this childish ranting? It’s embarrassing for Cardiff and I for one may just consider whether I really want to go to nights put on by such bitter people. Come on, it’s about the music, clubbing and people coming together! Get a grip! Well done Cellar Door for not lowering yourself.

    FOR THOSE JOINING THE BLOG LATE IT NEEDS TO BE POINTED OUT THAT IT HAS BEEN EDITED SINCE THE ORIGINAL POSTING.

      Hi there – Jess @ yourCardiff here. I have changed the headline, and an inaccuracy – altering "£12,000 sound system" to "12k sound system", which was a mistake on my part, not the author's – but nothing else has been edited since publication.

        The headline was part of the controversy : editing negates a lot of the comments made.

    was at the most recent cellar doors on sat 13th thought the venue was lacking a few simple neccesities the music was amazing and being from scotland where the scene will never die out there are a few things there getting wrong who pays 10 pound to get in and have to wait 40 mins in a que to have a smoke and also while youre waiting if you know the bouncers you get to que jump. also the door was top heavy with bouncers maby they should control the toilets a bit better also had to que in there as there was just a large gattering of people i love the music scene and totally understand what comes with it but come on there was people who couldnt even talk getting in i would deffinetly return to this venue as it is very diffrent but come on sort out the smoking areas plus the biggest best room is the chill out room you could pack that with a big dj no problem

    This page makes me laugh quite a bit the only thing this club has is music it's small you have to que for a smoke and anyone gets in no matter what state you are in so don't expect everyone to be happy cheery people was there for iv music was great. Why should any racer have to pay to stand and que for toilets because there are no bouncers up there dealing we what's going on in there some people are in there the whole night people that can't talk getting access and bouncers letting friends in and out as they please but not normal ravers now I know what comes with the scene and I came from Scotland for this night and to be honest the more comments I read the funnier it is this is not a superclub it's a place for 300 people to get WASTED or even turn up wasted and do what you want apart from smoke if this were a club in Scotland there would have been riots ques for toilets and fags ok 10 mins not forty though you miss nearly a full set if that were a big Dj none of the punters would be back I liked this venue but it ain't doing nothing for the scene and would much rather pay to see a big Dj in a real club
