THE Dead Canary - known elusively as TDC on Facebook and Twitter - has been Cardiff's worst kept secret as it teased locals over the launch of its new cocktail bar in Cardiff.
But it will finally open next month.
The Dead Canary will offer a collection of classic cocktails, turned on their head through the use of eccentric infusions and exotic ingredients.
The new bar will seat 80.
Mastermind behind The Dead Canary concept, Mark Holmes, said: "The drinks are incredibly important, which is why we hand-picked the talent for this bar. They're a group of 10 people who we've worked with before, who wanted a challenge and who shared our passion for going that extra mile for our customers.
"We want our customers to challenge us... Come in, tell us your favourite ingredient or your favourite song and we'll make a cocktail unique to you.
"Who knows, it could even make it on to our next menu. The consumer will very much be a part of our bar, a part of the story."
Located at a mystery number on Barrack Lane, customers will have to find their own way to the door to enjoy the cocktails inside.
The Dead Canary launch weekend starts on Saturday, December 5, and the bar is open to the public from December 10.
