Response from the owner: Our mixologists are the best at what they do! Thank you Andrea, always a pleasure with your team 🙂
Fantastic service! Very happy with all aspects of The Cocktail Lab experience from their prompt response to initial enquiry from Claudio, clear unambiguous quote, guidance and info leading up to our planned party and to top it all, the actual service on the evening of the party. The assigned mixologist , Paolo, arrived in his van on time about an hour before the party, set up his portable bar and equipment ready to vow and serve guests when they began arriving soon after. Paolo was very friendly as well as efficient. He prepared well over 140 cocktails and mocktails for approximately 50 guests. He was polite and made all the guests comfortable and even taught some of them how to mix cocktails. All the guests , without exception, were raving about the cocktail bar as a big highlight of the party.Paolo was also very good in cleaning and tidying up as his session came to an end.Thanks very much Claudio, Paolo and Niki ! Grazie Mille !!I will wholeheartedly recommend The Cocktail Lab for any formal or informal event or party.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your kind review 🙂 We do our best to create memorable experiences through cocktails, glad to hear that our cocktail bar was a highlight at the party. Hope to work with you again!
Perfect service and hosting. Would recommend for both casual and formal events!
Response from the owner: Thank you Anil, hope to work with you again. Cheers to great cocktails!
Antonio and Pierpalo were the best,warmest, friendliest and most skilled people we could’ve asked to do the cocktails at our party! Cannot recommend enough - such a brilliant experience.
Response from the owner: Thank you Ruby! We have a professional team of mixologists who help elevate any event 🙂 Glad you had a brilliant party with us!

Response from the owner: Thank you for your kind words Becci 🙂 We love being part of birthday celebrations and we hope we helped make yours a fantastic one with great cocktails!
Pierpaolo and Marco were the most amazing bartenders for my daughter’s 21st Birthday Party. Punctual, polite, smiley and made some fantastic cocktails for our guests.Aside from the night itself the organisation from the moment of enquiry right through to execution of event was faultless. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thank you Cocktail Lab.
Response from the owner: Thank you Adrienne! Hope our mixologists and cocktails made your daughter's birthday a night to remember!
The Cocktail Lab were a fantastic addition to our Christmas party! The cocktails were flowing and super tasty and Enas and Louise really kept the party vibing with their professional and friendly service. There was no glass left empty. The booking and organisation pre party was also very professional and Claudio advised perfectly on what was required. He was very responsive and super helpful. I would highly recommended the Cocktail Lab for any event or party.

They will be our go to people for the foreseeable future - I've already booked them in for another event in a few days!

They came to the opening of our new Store Fraser Hart at Meadowhall Shopping Center. They were so friendly and personable and very organised. They communicated with the company every step of the way. Their set up was very professional and eye catching. They were great with the staff and customers and they did an excellent job of leaving the area spotless after the event.

We have hired them 2 times and both experiences were great! Very responsible and punctual!!
Response from the owner: Thank you for hiring our cocktail bar again. We're so glad you enjoyed both experiences!
We used this service at our studio launch party. It was all very smooth and efficient.The bartender was amazing and drinks were on point !
Response from the owner: Hi Turi, thank you for having us at your event! Our bartender had a blast serving up delicious cocktails for you and your guests 🙂
Fantastic team. Made the party. The cocktails were wonderful and there was never a queue. Been to some great bars over the years and the Claudio’s team turned my garden into one of the best ones I’ve been to.
Response from the owner: Thank you for your wonderful review! We're so pleased you had a great experience with our mobile bar and we hope to serve you again soon.
Incredible experience and really reasonably priced.Giorgia, Vincenzo, Ollie, Ovidio, Pierpaolo and Marcelo were so polite and professional, arrived early and kept me and the organising team informed of any updates. They each made delicious (and strong!) drinks and kept the bar running until we drank it dry as our event was coming to a close.We opted for the dry hire as our office has a bar space and one of our clients provided the spirits for us to use. The shopping list provided was *just* enough for the time frame and number of people, so I'd say add an extra 25% if you have particularly thirsty guests. And definitely double and triple check you have everything. Fortunately we were close enough to a supermarket that we could pop out for more fruit and juice during the set up time.Can't recommend highly enough!
Response from the owner: Hi Sascha, it was an absolute pleasure serving you and your guests. Our mixologists are always here to impress, cheers to a good time!
