The Press Room Pop-Up Concept

The Press Room, crafted in the tradition of speakeasies, is a bar and lounge tucked away inside the AC Hotel Greenville. The space has been transformed into The Cheshire’s Hideaway Bar & Lounge, a new Alice in Wonderland-themed pop-up experience.

Named for the mischievous Cheshire Cat from the cherished childhood tale and popular 2010 live-action remake, this immersive experience showcases décor taken straight out of Alice’s adventures in Wonderland, featuring themed cocktails that round out a completely magical trip of the eyes, tastebuds, and imagination.

An Immersive Wonderland Bar & Lounge Experience

Guests will be taken (literally) down the rabbit hole into an escapist, whimsical array of curious scenes and patterns reminiscent of some of the most memorable visuals from the story. There is much to explore, from Alice falling through the ceiling to large, colorful murals of the Queen of Hearts’ courtyard.

Don't Be Late (For a Very Important Date)

The Cheshire’s Hideaway Bar & Lounge at The Press Room, well-known for its handcrafted, specialty cocktails, features a new limited edition drink menu, creatively curated and inspired by Alice’s adventures in Wonderland. This fun, yet sophisticated drink menu embraces tongue-in-cheek names such as “The Wrong Alice” and “Absolem the Wise”, while the delicious food menu begs you to “Eat Me”, with a selection of “Tea Time” sandwiches, “Dodo Bird” wings, and other crunchy snacks available.


This pop-up concept is located in the AC Hotel on the 2nd floor. To access it, just enter at the Juniper / Press Room elevator located in Camperdown Plaza on the side of the AC Hotel Greenville, right next to Perfect Buns.
