The White Rabbit

Look for the red light on a side street in downtown Gilbert to find this stylish underground speakeasy in the historic Heritage Court Building. Sign up on the website to get the monthly password, and descend the staircase to start The White Rabbit adventure. A narrow hallway flanked with apothecary-inspired decor seems to dead end at a bookcase that’s actually the door leading to a dark, well-appointed lounge with sumptuous leather seating, Victorian-era details and locked cabinets holding prized spirits, including bottles of The White Rabbit’s private label made by Old Forester and Woodford Reserve. Here, it’s all about the cocktails, which are listed in ascending order of sweetness. At the top of the menu sits the Half-Way Crooked, made with Old Forester bourbon, maple, chocolate and apricot; at the bottom, customers will find the Scarlet Sundown, made with Kasama rum, spiced rum, pomegranate, passionfruit, watermelon and citrus. The bar is housed in former office suites, and the restrooms reflect these origins with frosted glass on the doors, which adds to the vintage cool factor.
