Dr. Gimlette, Brisbane City

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
