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 cheese and charcuterie for two ($35), a croque monsieur or the Dessert for a Duchess — a sweet concoction of chocolate and salted caramel brownie with vanilla bean gelato and a drunken berry compote.

To really treat yourself, book in for the Tipsy Tea. It's a boozy high tea that happens every Saturday (11.30am and 3pm) and Sunday (2pm), and features an array of savoury and sweet treats paired with cocktails or sparkling wine. Tickets start from $70 per person, and bookings are essential.
