Covent Garden

West End

Covent Garden is a splendid botanical-themed bar and eatery with tropical rear garden in a colonial West End shop.

The plant-filled oasis in the midst of bustling Boundary St specialises in gin and gin cocktails, with the house signature the G + High Tea – a 3-tier stand of savoury bar snacks and sweet delicacies served with a watering can of gin cocktail.

Patrons can take a seat in the lush rear garden - where there’s a cute cubby house bar, surrounded by staghorns, bamboo and fairylit frangipani tree, upstairs in the English parlour style lounge with balcony overlooking the street or perched on a stool in the front bar watching the West End street life go by.

Aside from the high tea there’s plenty of other reasons to dine here, with a delectable menu of top quality, yet casual dishes designed to share. Small starters include chipotle chicken taco, manchego croquette and the must-try swordfish kebab.

In a group that can’t decide? Then order a Feasting Table – a selection of Covent Garden’s most popular dishes for just $39pp (available for groups of 4+).

If you’re not dining, Covent Garden makes a perfect spot to enjoy a few drinks. As well as the luscious botanical house and gin cocktails, there are craft beers/cider on tap as well as an impressive list of beer and cider by the bottle, and a small curated menu of Australian and international wines. 

But first and foremost Covent Garden is a gin drinker’s nirvana, with a 4-page list including boutique and small batch gins from all around Australia and the world.

Other spirit drinkers aren’t forgotten though, with a quality selection of vodka, tequila, rum, bourbon and scotch whisky available.

Nice to know – The food menu is 100% gluten free and coeliac friendly.

Need to know – Covent Garden’s many beautiful spaces are available for function bookings.
