The CBD has welcomed the ultimate winter hideaway, with late-night cocktail den Trinket now open on Flinders Lane. An oversized jewellery box of grown-up delights, it's a glamorous two-level space, full of art deco styling and old-world charm.

Through the hidden entrance, you'll discover a fireplace and lounge primed for cocktail sessions, while another secret basement bar awaits downstairs.

In keeping with the vibe, both the food menu and cocktail lineup have a dark edge. The bar has reimagined classic creations such as the sherry cobbler — made here with pineapple, almond syrup, absinthe spray and a smoked rosemary garnish — and a piña colada daiquiri, featuring pineapple-infused white rum, lime, pineapple and coconut syrup.

In the kitchen, Head Chef Telina Menzies is delivering a menu of bites designed to be enjoyed with a cocktail in hand. Find gems like the charred black pudding with goat's cheese, Turkish figs and a lemon zest flatbread; three cheese cigars matched with honey pearls and a smoked ash aioli; and an Aperol spritz-cured kingfish topped with pomegranate.

Food is on offer until the bar closes, seven days a week, with DJs and live acts setting the tone every Friday and Saturday night.
