Art cocktails at The Woods
Inspired by Damien Hirst's spot paintings, this neatly presented selection coloured shooters is presented on a minimalistic white base. This contrast of colours each contain a shot with a distinct flavour profile, yet work together in harmony. $120
Anish Kapoor is the muse behind Darkest Desire. Kapoor is the brains behind The Cloud Gate Sculpture aka the Chicago Bean, and other large, reflective sculptures. The cocktail draws inspiration from Kapoor’s Sky Mirrors and his controversial purchasing of exclusive rights to the world’s blackest substance, Vantablack, by freezing a small mirror frozen into an ice cube, floating in a black squid-ink cocktail. $125
Olafur Eliasson's One Way Colour Tunnel is recreated in the Glasshouse cocktail. The team at The Woods have designed and printed a geometric frame, with their in-house 3D printer, filling each gap with coloured and flavoured ice. Creating an effect similar to a stained glass wndow, this interative cocktail encourages guests to push the ice into the cocktail, changing the flavour profile as they sip. $140
Get lost in The Woods, at the bottom of a long, narrow staircase off of Hollywood Road and sip on cocktails made up of specialist liquors, house-cured ingredients, infusions and hybrids of all kinds. –The Woods is known for its experimental mixology with seasonal ingredients.
