Be honest, a hidden bar was always going to pique your interest. But a hidden Brisbane bar that specialises in whiskey? That’s just begging to be hunted down!
There’s nothing we love more than going on a bit of a scavenger hunt for a top shelf drink, even more so if the secret bar we’re seeking out houses some of Brisbane’s most talented, downright crazy mixologists.
Newbie secret whisky bar Jack Rabbits is the brainchild of Nick Royds, Daniel Rodriguez and Bodie Schofield, owners of iconic Brisbane bar, Canvas. If you’re familiar with Canvas (which I’m assuming you are, because if you’re not what have you been doing!?) you’ll know that their award-winning cocktails are the business.
So where exactly is Jack Rabbits? Great question.
Having recently taken over the Crosstown Public House space (across the road from Canvas) in Woolloongabba’s famous dining precinct the Canvas team have given the entire location a loving reno, paying tribute to the precinct’s famous antique store history, renaming the project Electric Avenue.
Housed inside stunning new bistro Electric Avenue—which brings the clout of ex-Sourced Grocer head chef, Will Quartel—Jack Rabbits is tucked away on the first floor, completely hidden from the world.
This incredible new hybrid venue is split in two; downstairs, Electric Avenue will be an intimate 50-seat bistro with a strong beer and wine focus paired perfectly with some incredible dishes. Upstairs—you guessed it—, is all about whiskey. Oh and some amazing cocktails to boot.
Set to open this month, Electric Avenue and Jack Rabbits are the dining-drinking duo we never knew we so desperately needed.
More details are headed yur way soon, so stay tuned!
