Went here on a recent trip to Cardiff with my boyfriend as I'd read about it in a guide of 'what to do in Cardiff' and am a big cocktail fan. I did reserve a table as it was graduation week in cardiff and I didn't know if it was going to be busy or not. We arrived shortly after... More

Can't recommend this place enough!! My partner and I had a 3 course taster menu and I can honestly say it was one of the most fantastic starts to a night out I've ever had!! Fantastic atmosphere and friendly staff who are incredibly passionate and knowledgable about their work!!! Can't wait to return for the 7 courses next time!!

Monday night jazz band was amazing, the barmen put on quite a show and the atmosphere was hip and fun with a diverse crowd. Not only was the cocktail selection extensive, special request were also catered for. The bar could be a bit slow, but the chat was good so it was no bother.

Came here for a hen activity over May Bank holiday. Our barman (Luke!) was great and went through the history and origins of all the cocktails we were making which made an otherwise boozey activity a bit more sophisticated! Great cocktails and all tasted great. Some fun tricks involving fire and ice. Great fun and would recommend to anyone

Sunday night is never going to be the pinnacle of excitement. Lab22 was very chilled and informal, serving a big range of cocktails with great descriptions and their own take on classics
