a new speakeasy cocktail bar opens in Gilbert

GILBERT, AZ – The Rabbit Hole is now open at Gilbert and not only will you need to find it to get in, but you will need to make a reservation to be a guest on the list; yes, that means it’s a speakeasy bar with limited capacity.

“We like to think of it as an immersive experience…the idea is that when you come here, we want you to feel like you’ve been transported back to the 1920s, like a forbidden cocktail bar,” Joey said. Quatmann, the general. administrator.


According to Quatmann, it’s not common knowledge that during Prohibition “there was a thriving cocktail culture”, and that era inspired the venue’s theme.

“What makes our menu unique from other bars is [that] we kind of specialize in ‘bartender’s choice’ where… you specifically tell the bartender what you want and the bartender will craft something on the spot,” Quatmann said.


The Rabbit Hole shares the building with two other bars: the White Rabbit Bar and the Parlor Room.

Besides the fact that The Rabbit Hole is a speakeasy, there’s another reason it shares the facility.

“We have this fictional character, known as Dr O’Hare. And the idea is that he was a doctor in the 1920s and he had a mansion… each of these individual bars is a different part of his mansion,” Quatmann said. “So you have the main bar, which is The White Rabbit, which is you know the cocktail experience. You have The Parlor Room, which is a nightclub. And then you have The Rabbit Hole which is a more intimate kind of experience.
