Shh, QT Has A Secret Garden Bar

by Lauren Riccardi

I bet you didn’t know that nestled behind the Rooftop at QT Melbourne bar is the hotel’s latest addition, the Secret Garden Bar. This ideal summer destination has landed on Russell St, and is perfect for celebratory, tough day, post-work, and TGIF drinks!

The QT has brilliantly teamed up with the one and only Four Pillars, offering a unique experience. The space was originally used by the hotel’s food and beverage team to source produce. Then, in 2018, it was converted into a small private event space, and now it’s a summer evening dream.

To enter the idyllic venue, you’ll need to ask a staff member to send you in the right direction, where you will then board a staff entrance elevator, located in a laneway by the hotel. The lush garden and mural, commissioned by a local artist, create a sense of exclusivity, whilst the fresh herbs encourage involvement for patrons, as they can ‘choose their own adventure’.

To construct a unique experience for visitors, the bar allows them to participate in a gin tasting before wondering over to the garden and handpicking the herbs that they wish to accompany their chosen drop!

It’s (gin) clear that the QT have made all the right choices in partnering up with Four Pillars, who have delivered with an exclusive line of gin for the Secret Garden Bar. On that note, the cocktail menu celebrates gin, creating innovative recipes including a blend of Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin, passionfruit and lime leaf, and even a Gin Spritz, involving carbonated stone fruit.

If you get hungry from all the gin tasting, herb picking, and cocktail sipping, you can order some bites from the QT and Four Pillars designed bar menu. Expect dishes like gin infused barbecued chipolatas and gin marmalade skewers.
