Not too long ago one of my friends booked reservations for drinks at The Blind Rabbit, a speakeasy hidden within the Packing District in Anaheim. It was my first time visiting this speakeasy style restaurant and bar and overall the experience was pretty fun.
To find The Blind Rabbit, first you must enter the Packing District. Once inside look for some decoy sake barrels and find the attendant. There is no real sign that I saw for the restaurant, just an attendant and if you look closely among the sake barrels, you will see a small rabbit statue.
Once inside the hidden doors you will find that the restaurant itself is extremely small, a medium sized bar dominates the center and there are a few dining tables that surround the bar. From what I can tell reservations are highly recommended as there is limited seating. There is a full menu for food which looks good, but since we had such a late reservation we stuck with drinks at the bar.
The drinks that I tried were about an average price for drinks in Orange County and were quite good. I went with a group of 4 and everyone was pleased with the drinks we ordered.
Something to note when visiting the Blind Rabbit is that there is a dress code and a no-flash photography rule once inside. Hence, all my pictures inside the restaurant suck.
When it comes time to pay, true to speakeasy style you are offered a book which houses your receipt.
On your way out make sure to stop by the hidden photo booth near the entrance. It will set you back $5/print but honestly I don’t think I can ever say no to a photo booth…especially when I’ve been indulging in the drink.
All in all, I had a pleasant visit to The Blind Rabbit and am looking forward to returning to try the food they offer!
