Iconic new bar & kitchen in Cardiff Bay

We pride ourselves in our unrivalled waterside location and the exciting range of food and drink menus containing delicious dishes and drinks inspired by world flavours, synonymous with the heritage of ‘the Docks’.

Our friendly team will be on hand to welcome you.  We are sure you will love the specialist cocktails served by professional mixologists, the casual and vibrant atmosphere, the decor, the views and the music while you delight in the range of cuisines cooked by our expert team of chefs, with our iconic choice of drinks.


Looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend or relative? With our Brains gift cards you can give them the perfect present. Load them up at the bar with the value of your choice* and let your friends and family enjoy food, drinks or even a night’s stay at a Brains Inn of their choice.

Or maybe you know a budding beer enthusiast who would like to add to their collection? Our very own Brains Craft Brewery cans and original Brains Beers are now available in gift packs. Cheers!
