Incredible hidden gem of a bar
Jul 2021
Absolutely fantastic bar, such a hidden gem. You might struggle to find it - look for the graffiti of dragons and you'll find a doorbell next to a small painting of a bird - but it is well worth the hunt. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, one of our party wasn't drinking and they offered to adapt any of the drinks onto the menu into a mocktail and all the ones they did were absolutely delicious!

The current menu is all based on dragons from myths from around the world and is brilliantly done, each page is beautifully illustrated with information about the dragon and the ingredients for each drink. All the drinks were incredible too, very tasty in fun and interesting glassware.

I liked the decor too, a wonderful mix of gramophones, comfy sofas and old paintings, it worked really well. In fact the only tiny thing that I might have changed was the music, it was rather eclectic and didn't really go with the surroundings. But that is a tiny niggle among an absolutely wonderful evening, I'd really recommend visiting this place.

Here Be Dragons 🐉...

The new menu couldn't be more exciting. Based on classical tales of Dragons each drink has it's own story and artwork. My favourite so far is the Lóng. Can't wait to try the rest! As always, one of the best places to be in Cardiff with the loveliest staff 💜

An experience
Nov 2020
I can’t fault a thing about this place honestly. Served by a very knowledgable, friendly and attentive man called Richard. I think this is the perfect place to go if you are interested in the actual drinks and also if you want to feel welcome and comfortable in such a nice environment. I really can’t express how impressed I am ever time I go. Probably my favourite bar in the whole of Cardiff

Excellent whiskey
Nov 2020
Booked a table for Birthday drinks for my boyfriend. We both love whiskey and the guy that served us (wish we knew his name because he was brilliant) was really enthusiastic and knowledgable. He had some really excellent suggestions.
We had a cocktail and 4 different whiskeys, wish we'd had time to have more especially as the final bill was way less thank we thought it would be based on the drinks we had!

Best Experience by Richard!
Nov 2020 • Friends
When arriving at dead canary I thought oh god here we go but after being seated I was presently surprised! Our bar man Richard was absolutely amazing!! Helped us with cocktail choice and honestly fulfilled exactly what we was looking for. Every time he came back he would always introduce something new and asked for our requirements, he would ask what kinds of fruits, berry/ or even alcohol we liked and he would specify it to our requirements and every time the cocktails were beyond outstanding! Could not ask for a better host! Would definitely recommend! And ask for Richard!

Perfect for a chilled evening

A warm and very welcoming cosy lounge bar. Staff were on form and the cocktails were great. Not sure for big groups of friends but perfect for dates. Miss the live music but covid stops that for the moment. Great night thank you.
