A master alchemist, Jackalope delights at blending incongruous elements. Even its name nods to the theme of fusion, referring to a made-up, mythical creature – part-jackrabbit, part-antelope – that exists only in folklore. With a jet-black, zinc-clad exterior, it stands in sharp contrast to the rural farms and rolling vineyards of the Mornington Peninsula. Inside, shared spaces are lavished with impossible-to-miss art while rooms are a colour-sapped statement of white and grey. Two starkly modern restaurants surprise with farm-to-fork food and a contemporary club-like bar stands in the shell of an old Edwardian homestead. Whatever the formula, the chemistry’s just right.
