With its quirky name inspired by the children’s book by Margery Williams, elaborate list of tipples and eye-catching bar counter, The Velveteen Rabbit is a lively spot that draws the happening crowd. There’s a fairytale-like ambience that’s big on wood, glass and muted lighting. The ground floor gets packed with people dancing, so if you are looking for a comparatively quiet corner, head upstairs. Their cocktails have fun names and interesting ingredients that make for an intriguing night. Try the literary-inspired Sherlock & Watson, made with Dewar’s whiskey and earl grey tea.
