A couple of weeks ago I popped into the new Cause & Effect Bar which is located in Park Road – Gardens, across the road from Fat Cactus and in the building where the old Pasta Factory used to be.
Cause & Effect refers to themselves as an “experiential cocktail kitchen & brandy bar”. Intriguing right?
Also, I will admit, I Google stalked them a bit before popping in and saw photos of their amazing decor and just new I wanted to make this my new pre-dinner (or post-dinner) drinks home.
Let me show you what I mean… This place is pretty great:
They serve cocktails essentially in 3 “courses” – light Apertif cocktails, followed by Cause which is a selection of brandy-based cocktails, then Effect which is a selection of cocktail classics. Then for those who want to end off their cocktail exploration with something a little out there, there’s the Experiential Seasonal Menu.
If you’re hungry they also serve lunch & dinner Tuesday to Saturday. They have a selection of food options which include sharing boards (which comes with an accompanying cocktail designed to complement it), bar appetizers, salads, and a couple of mains including venison pie, a pulled beef burger, brandy flambé steak and a brandy trio mushroom pasta. And as a worthy side note: All ingredients are locally sourced and freshly foraged AND they use a waterless system in their bar, chilling each drink without using ice. Love that.
Cause & Effect is open: Tuesday to Friday 12noon to 1.30am & Saturday 8pm to 1.30am (closed on Sundays and Mondays)
