Gimlet at Cavendish House x Icebergs Bar
A new Melbourne culinary favourite is headed to Bondi for a night of fancy snacks and signature cocktails.
As the latest venture from hospitality heavyweight Andrew McConnell (Cumulus Inc, Supernormal, Marion), elegant bar and bistro Gimlet has been causing quite the splash down in its hometown of Melbourne. And come Sunday, April 18, Sydneysiders are being invited in on some of that magic, as the venue's cocktail bar heads north for a one-night appearance at Icebergs Bar.
Across two 90-minute sittings (6–7.30pm and 8–9.30pm), guests will score an all-encompassing taste of Gimlet via a menu of snacks and signature sips — all courtesy of McConnell, Head Chef Allan Doert Eccles and Bar Manager Cameron Parish. You'll find yourself tucking into sophisticated bites like the rock oysters done with seaweed butter and rye, fried cheese morsels, and dainty yellowfin tuna sandwiches with pickled rock samphire and salted onion. Meanwhile, in the drinks corner, expect the likes of a mai tai reworked with green almond and macadamia, and a riff on the gimlet (of course) featuring moscato and Geraldton wax.
To nab a spot on the night, you'll need to book one of the limited tickets for $60. It's a pay-as-you-go affair, so that $60 will be taken off your evening's final bill.
