    What a gem!
    We were so happy we came across this underground bar, that we went back the next night! No menus, they will ask you what you generally drink and will suggest something based on your answers. My brother (typical Aussie VB man) isn't a cocktail man, but he had 4 and loved them all. I asked to be surprised for mine, starting with absolutely no preferences. Jasper smashed it, and made me delicious drinks each time. My partner had whiskey neat and enjoyed all of his. I'm so sorry I can't remember her name but she was also providing amazing service and great conversations. They also have live music from I think 9pm. Definitely a spot to check out!

    Quirky speakeasy cocktail bar
    Proper Speakeasy, tucked down an obscure alley and down some stairs. Having been to original Chicago speakeasy’s, this matches perfectly. It’s dark, small tables and cosy, but all the better for it. Such at atmosphere and with live music from 9 when we visited in early Nov. The staff were brilliant and really attentive - there’s no menu, just explain what you like and they will concoct you something magical. They checked up on us frequently (but not intrusive) and made us feel v welcome. For a speakeasy styled cocktail bar, it’s perfection.

    Different experience
    We really enjoyed this experience. We had three drinks each here served by different people, they were both very attentive and listened to what we liked, disliked and they asked plenty of questions. We loved both of our drinks. We enjoy a cocktail and were cautious it would be a tourist trap but the bar tender was very good! Little pricier than a normal bar but a good immersive and personalised experience if you are looking for something different

Mind blown!! No menu, no worries, no need! Bartenders/waiters have an eidetic memory for mixed drinks in this hidden speakeasy…

Went in and was served by the literal owner… wow

Around the corner from Tiffany’s, this is an interesting place to have a drink. The location fills up fast as soon as it opens. The bartenders are very creative. So don’t hesitate to suggest ingredients you would like to try. Enjoy!

We are holiday the day before we’d been to the oyster inn and we were recommended to come and find hideaway, we walked past it several times before we actually found the place even with google maps…

We went in and sat at the bar.. it’s retro almost like a bunker set in the 1940s.. we actually accidentally were served all night by the owner, what a delightful gentleman and what a blast we had, they have no menu so they ask what you’ve drank before what tastes you like and serve accordingly… we were bowled over ‘literally’ by the the end of the night..

What a blast, can’t recommend this place more…

Thankyou guys

Terrible service! Was shown to our table but that’s where the service stopped. No one came to take our order but in the meantime groups that seated after us were served. I went to the bar to ask for service and was told someone would come over. After 1/2hr of waiting I tried to order at the bar which again I was told someone would be straight over. After 40min of wasting our time we walked out.

Absolute pretentious nonsense. Some complete stranger comes and sits at your table without any invitation and asks you what kind of tastes you like. Just make a cocktail menu and let me choose one. Honestly, how embarrassing.

Visited with friends for an evening cocktail and had a great experience. There are no menus at Caretaker, instead the staff ask you a series of short questions about the sorts of drinks you like and then prepare something based off that. For me they prepared a Pineapple Daiquiri Deluxe, which certainly matched up with my answers and was delicious!
