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 !

Our bartender had a blast serving up delicious cocktails for you and your guests 🙂 The F. ★★★★★ 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 ownerThank 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. Sascha C. ★★★★★ 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 ownerHi Sascha, it was an absolute pleasure serving you and your guests. Our mixologists are always here to impress, cheers to a good time! LiyoO92ii ★★★★★ I booked the cocktail Lab for an intimate cocktail masterclass I wanted to do for the launch of our newest Ralph Lauren fragrance.

Well done to Paolo, Marco and Simone for that 5 stars job.Response from the ownerThank you for your review! We always make sure our services are top-notch and curated to your needs. Great cocktails for a great launch 🙂 Lionel ★★★★★ Everything went very well and smoothly. The mixologist was great, friendly. Really 5* service.Response from the ownerThank you Lionel!
