White Rabbit Cocktail Room
A hidden cocktail bar with inventive cocktails and tipsy high teas.
Like the name suggests, this rather magical cocktail bar takes inspiration from Lewis Carroll's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Here, your cocktail comes in a teapot, bearing a delightful name and containing an even more delightful concoction. How about a Walrus? That's Talisker, Johnnie Walker Black Label, fresh lemon juice, egg white and house-made syrup, served with crystallized ginger and nutmeg. Of course, every possible classic cocktail is also available for order, too, if you're not feeling that adventurous.
Pair your tipple of choice with a cheese board or charcuterie ($30 each), a croque monsieur or the Mad Hatter's Tea Party — a sweet eton mess-like concoction with white chocolate mousse, raspberry sorbet, strawberry gel, almond crumb, popping candy and mini meringues.
To really treat yourself, book in for the Tipsy Tea. It's a boozy high tea that happens every Saturday and Sunday from 2–5pm and features an array of savoury and sweet treats paired with cocktails or sparkling wine. Tickets cost $70 per person, and bookings are essential.
