One minute I’m taking in the pineapple lights that deck out Ananas Bar & Brasserie with the signature Absolutely Ananas pineapple and chilli bitters cocktail in my hand, the next she’s managed to worm a bespoke whiskey cocktail out of them.

Interestingly enough, I was actually there to drink Champagne – Ruinart and Marc to be exact – in the French version of aperitivo hour.


It’s called Cinq à Sept (5-7pm) and during it both the bubbly stuff and selected cocktails will be $15. Take your tipple with snacks from Paul McGrath’s (Bistro Ortolan) new bar menu, which might include mushroom veloute, deep fried oysters and rabbit rillettes.
