Alright, perhaps not so secret anymore, but still full of mystery and intrigue, a hidden bar is about to open in a menswear boutique. Booze and bespoke suiting; it couldn’t be more Mad Men if it tried!
If you have no idea what we’re talking about, The Cloakroom is an upscale, Kingsman-esque Brisbane menswear boutique filled to the brim with designer suits and super stylish décor. Their attentive, bespoke approach to fashion is now being translated into their newest venture, The Cloakroom Bar; a top secret cocktail bar at the back of their luxe store—and it’s only accessible via a fire escape...
Hidden down a laneway you will be met by said fire escape which, if you are admitted entrance to The Cloakroom Bar, will gain you access inside. There are a few rules; the first being that everyone must be seated to partake (and by partake, we mean to drink), so if there are not enough seats you will be turned away. The second; you must be greeted with a palate cleansing cocktail before your order so that the three exclusive and experienced bartenders can better tell the story of your drink. Third; there is no menu. Each drink is completely bespoke, perfectly tailored to suit your palate.
In terms of space, there is surprisingly ample, and yet it retains an intimate charm. Clientele will be able to choose from three exclusive spaces; an alfresco deck area, and two internal spots (one able to seat ten, the other, four).
The launch of The Cloakroom Bar is said to be happening at the end of August, and we are waiting with baited breath to see if we fit the bill to get in.
