Hidden in Electric Avenue, up the stairs and through a wardrobe lies Jack Rabbits, a whisk(e)y and cocktail focused bar based on a 1920s prohibition speakeasy.
Taxidermist animals line the walls along with grandfather clocks and antiques, plush vintage couches strewn with cowhide pillows and lighting by teacup candlelight.
Friday brings the space alive with a jazz band sat right in the middle of the venue, bringing couples and groups together to enjoy the vibrant electric atmosphere. Dancing is encouraged, with patrons using all available space to spin and show off their moves.
You could be forgiven for thinking that you had just stepped into the prohibition era, the only giveaway being windows overlooking Logan road and the Gabba a stone's throw away.
Here cocktails mainly revolve around the whiskeys offered, with a guide for patrons unsure what to try next, as well as bottled classics. Service is from the metal pressed bar, With a listing of around 300 whisk(e)ys from around the world, staff are trained and knowledgeable to help you find exactly the right tipple.
The food offering is abundant with burgers, taco, cheese and meats all available as well as bar snacks and a dessert menu, catering for all your vegan, vegetarian and gluten free needs.
