The Cauliflowr Hotel: A Brief Overview

At 123 Botany Road, in the iconic suburb of Waterloo, stands The Cauliflower Hotel.
The 1838 built Cauliflower Hotel underwent a loving restoration, by husband-and-wife team Justin and Pippi Drew, for over a year before launching their specialist rum bar and kitchen in 2015-2016.

The Cauliflower Hotel is a rock-inspired bar where patrons enjoy food and drink while listening to live music every Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, or can simply enjoy beer with friends while watching live sports on one of eighteen screens.

Drawing inspiration from Mediterranean and Mexican mezze style foods, The Forgotten Cask food menu offers a familiar vibe with a modern twist as well as solid dose of good, old-fashioned Aussie pub classics. We offer a get-away space that caters to functions and events or just small get-togethers with good friends and co-workers.

Upstairs at The Cauliflower Hotel is The Forgotten Cask; a specialised rum and cocktail rooftop bar and kitchen. The Forgotten Cask bar boasts a laid-back, St Lucian – style, rum focused cocktail bar with a Caribbean theme. From the palms and grass on the roof to the vintage rum posters on the walls, this bar will have patrons relaxing with a signature cocktail (all named after pirates!) and dreaming themselves to St Lucia.

This specialist rum bar offers rums unavailable anywhere outside the Caribbean such as Forgotten Cask, Admiral Rodney and Justin and The Forgotten Cask’s exclusive Chairman’s Reserve range. There is a selection of over ninety rums and spirits from around the world, some exotic cocktails, all accompanied by a food menu which takes inspiration from Pacific Rim countries from Mexico to Peru.

The cocktail bar extends to The Lounge Deck and further out to the tropical inspired Rooftop Terrace.

Owners, Justin and Pippi Drew, also operate Big Island Operations, and hold the exclusive rights to import St Lucian Distillers rums, famously creating Chairman’s Reserve.

With a space to suit just about any occasion and any kind of weather scenario, The Cauliflower Hotel and The Forgotten cask Rooftop Bar should be on everyone’s radar.
