“Amazing night!”
Review of Retro Cardiff

Reviewed 12 July 2014

I have never been to a place like Retro's. The karaoke was in full swing on Thursday night and we had the best fun. Usually karaoke can be cringy but the set up here is great, with a great mix of tunes. The cocktails are great value and the crowd was a really good one. Everyone seemed up for a good laugh. If I ever return to Cardiff, I will definitely be back.

only giving 1 star as zero stars isn't an option...
i'd heard great things about this place and it's fab music and atmosphere. unfortunately, when i ventured in while on a hen night 7th of this month i was absolutely disgusted by stench!! think abattoir meets sewage works and they have an incontinent child and you'll be somewhere close. couldn't hear the music over the sound of the entire party of 11 heaving from the stink and having to look at the nasty tiled communal sink in the ladies that was covered in mildew... rank!!!
i woke up the following day with a very nasty infection in my foot!! coincidence? i think not!! :(

Had an amazing night on hen night at retro's. Only downside was 3 lads staying in penthouse in Cardiff never turned up - We had overheard in an Italian restaurant on Thursday that they were visiting Retro's and were looking to hold an after club party. Me and my 20 girlfriends were looking forward to it. Anyhow - their loss - I bet they were tucked up in bed with their coco by 1130. Never mind - Retros was unbelievable!!!!!.

Hahah!

We LOVED your review! Glad you had fun in Retro (bummer about the boys, we should have tracked them down!!!!). Sounds like you ladies can turn anything into a party though, so youre right, their loss! Hope the Hen has a wonderful wedding, let us know when we should through an anniversary party for her!

Come back soon!

This place was great fun for a night out.

lots of cheesy and good songs with a good mix in between.

I'd recommend getting on the guest list for entry. You can do this by email through the website which is what we did. We went both on a Fri and Sat night.

regarding stag parties fully agree with not allowing them in. saw a lot of them in other places and quite a few were hammered by 9Pm. IFor your part of a stag group plan ahead where to go, this should be common knowled now a days in the UK.
