I heard about the place through a friend who noted it would be opening in the week. From scrolling through social media and posts regarding the venue, I enjoyed the whole 'ring the bell' exclusivity vibe the place has. It's nice little touches that really make the place a breath of fresh air compared to other places in Cardiff. It's a bold move for a company to shy away from crowds hanging around the front door and neon lights advertising the place, but it really works for Dead Canary. Upon entering the place, the staff were friendly and attentive from beginning to end, the cocktails are delicious and a change from the standard you see on most menu's - and while you may not know all of them the staff are more than happy to ensure you get a drink you'll enjoy and will personalize your orders. It's such a nice atmosphere in there and while the no standing policy sounded imposing, it just makes the place feel calmer. Definitely plan on going back again, hopefully the atmosphere doesn't change as the place gets more exposure.
