If you are a big admirer of Tim Burton’s filmography or just a hardcore Lewis Caroll fan, there is this bar/ restaurant in downtown Colorado Springs that you might want to include on your next vacation trips.
It’s not just an ordinary bar or restaurant that offers sumptuous food for your palate, it is – dressed up and down – inspired by Alice in Wonderland that is known as The Rabbit Hole.
Yes, it’s as dreamy as it looks and sounds on paper. Yes, it features almost everything you loved in the world of Caroll’s fictional universe or Burton’s visualization in his film. But no, you don’t have to drink a magical liquid to shrink your height down to three inches tall to enter the premises.
The Rabbit Hole is probably one of the most mysterious food and drinks places in the area as getting here feels like playing a puzzle game. The entrance can be spotted near an entrance that resembles a subway on the sidewalk. Upon entering, you will find yourself going through a glass box many will confuse as a phone booth from the old days. Take a few steps across, and the illuminated neon-colored ‘The Rabbit Hole’ sign will greet you. Don’t mistake this as an underground tattoo parlor, the welcome sign is part of the dreamy atmosphere they are trying to replicate.
The internal decors of The Rabbit Hole are something you would expect in an Alice in Wonderland-themed resto-bar. Various characters from the story have their portraits in the wall, amongst other fun props to heighten their recreation.
Their menu is weirdly amusing as well, with food and drinks selection separated as “Eat Me” or “Drink Me,” a fun reference to Alice’s trippy adventures. Some of their items include cherry braised buffalo ribs, braised Colorado lamb shank, bacon-wrapped meatloaf, and cocktails they charmingly named White Rabbit martini, Queen of Hearts, Looking Glass single cocktail, and the Mad Hatter.
