If there’s one thing Melbourne needs more of, it’s secret bars.
And given its almost summer—prime gin drinking time—you’ll be pleased to learn that QT Melbourne has opened up their kitchen garden in a collaboration with Four Pillars.
Accessed by a secluded back-of-house doorway, the Secret Garden Bar is surrounded by bushes of Native River Mint, Fruit Salad Sage, Blue Lily Pilys and amazing city views.
Only 40 people can fit inside Secret Garden Bar where you can get stuck into a collection of Four Pillars gins that have been distilled exclusively for the space. You can go the easy path and order straight from the cocktail menu, or go your own way and choose herbs from the garden to match with your gin.
“At QT Melbourne, we’re constantly producing the highest levels of service and love to create incredible experiences through cutting-edge collaborations, art, music and food, and to partner with a local brand like Four Pillars means a great deal for the team, and our food and beverage obsessed guests.” said QT Melbourne General Manager, Lee Davey.
On the food front, you can tuck into Four Pillars’ classic Gin Pig which has had a QT twist. Try the Gin Ping Skewers with marmalade glaze, or the barbecued Gin Pin Chipolatas.
