The Saturday Night Foodies blog posted a positive and comprehensive review of the atmosphere, service and drink offerings at The Blind Rabbit, the cool speakeasy on the bottom floor of the new Anaheim Packing District. My wife and I have hit The Blind Rabbit ourselves more than once, and each time are impressed by the drinks, the food and the friendly, engaging staff.
From the review:
We came across The Blind Rabbit located at the recently opened Anaheim Packing District, a revitalized historical hot spot that has more than 20 food and beverage shops.
We approached a propped opened door that had red vinyl tufting on the inside and was camouflaged with Japanese sake barrels on the outside, that when closed, lined up perfectly with the rest of the barrels on the wall. We walked into a small dimly room, with a three-sided bar, about 10 bar stools, a few winged back chairs and an upright piano.
Whenever we try a new speakeasy, we typically start with an order from the menu. This time was no different. I started with the namesake drink, The Blind Rabbit sour: Four Roses yellow label bourbon, sweet vermouth, amaro, lemon juice, cane syrup, and egg white. Jason ordered the bacon-infused old fashioned.
By now we’ve become acquainted with Phillip, the friendly bar tender, and the conversation we’ve had about spirits gives us the comfort to place the creativity of the next round in his hands.
