Jonestown bar the Lucky Rabbit is opening a new bar in Leader this month. The Rabbit Hole will open at 2080 North US-183, Unit 145 starting on Friday, March 31 within the San Gabriel Ridge Shopping Center. Per the name, co-owners Matt Morcher and Sandra Cleveland are leaning into the idea of going down rabbit holes a la Alice in Wonderland, which means the decor will include “clock-like rabbits and gears,” according to a press release. There will be cocktails like the Bug’s Old Fashioned; 24 Carrot Gold with vodka, triple sec, blood orange, lime, and bitters; the Bubble Bunny with gin, lavender, lemon, and prosecco; and frozens like the Hot Hare, a spicy mango margarita with chamoy and Tajin. There are also beers, wines, and bar snacks, plus the capability to order food from local restaurants Sabino’s Pizza Pub and Ah Thinh Asian Cuisine. Hours will be from 2 p.m. to 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. to midnight Mondays through Thursdays.
