One of our favourite basement bars, Beneath Driver Lane is reopening on Thursday, June 25 after being closed for three months. You've probably enjoyed its whisky flights and online tastings during the lockdown period, but there is a certain romance to eating and drinking in the venue that is lost in translation when you're drinking individual nips delivered to you in a box.
From June 25, Beneath Driver Lane will be offering its new format of old school dining in the form of dinner and a show. It will be open from Thursdays to Saturdays from 5.30pm with two dinner seatings ($75 per person) and a supper seating ($50 per person) from 10.30pm. Each ticket will include one cocktail, a three-course European dinner (vegetarian is available) and a live blues performance (by either Frank Sultana, Jimi Hocking, Nardia Rose, Jesse Valach, Lisa Baird or Stella Anning). Of course, if you wish to drink more in your seating, additional spirits, cocktails, beer and wine will be available for purchase.
Who knows, a night in the basement might make you feel normal again.
Bookings are essential and can be made here.
