BRISBANE | Dr. Gimlette is a cocktail bar in Brisbane’s CBD from the team behind Death & Taxes, and Cobbler. Housed in one of Brisbane’s oldest heritage buildings, which dates back to 1892, the venue exudes old world character. A raised timber floor and exposed brick walls combine with warm, low lighting, artwork on the walls, plush leather booths, and a nine metre long marble bar.
Behind the bar, is a collection of over 300 spirits – local and international. They can be enjoyed neat, in classic cocktail, or in one of Dr. Gimlette’s bespoke creations. On the menu, you’ll find around 30 rotating cocktails themed around flavours, potions, plagues, and cures.
There’s variations on the bar’s namesake, the gimlet, highballs, fruit forward cocktails, herbaceous creations, and more. The ‘Scarlett Stains’, a combination of Fords Gin, Antica Formula Spiced Apple & Rhubarb, and Lemon, is a great option. As is the ‘Death Rattle’, a blend of Lark Symphony No.1 Whisky, ginger, turmeric, toasted coconut and pandan.
Keep an eye out for the bar’s tow martini carts, available to serve every type of martini with various garnishes, gins and methods to pick from. If cocktails aren’t your thing, there’s also a quality selection of craft beer and wine to choose from.
