Shhh Its The Lock In

Here at Rogue Homme we’re very excited to announce that The Grounds of Alexandria, has a secret it has been keeping under lock and key. The Lock-In, The Grounds’ newest venue, offers a dark and mysterious room in which to privately indulge and enjoy the freedom of seclusion, all situated within The Potting Shed Bar & Eatery.

Hidden behind a huge door, The Lock-In offers a space for guests and their friends to escape the humdrum of the day and unwind without disruption – where staff take your coat and you take your time. Where the key to a memorable night is having the key to get in.

Vince Alafaci and Caroline Choker of Acme&Co designed the new space following the launch of The Potting Shed to cater for yet another unique experience The Grounds offers.


Rumour has it that this is where the bar staff keep their best stuff, hidden for special occasions and those in the know. Once entombed within its shady depths, lucky guests will enjoy their own personal bar, with hand selected bar staff, whilst sampling the treasure trove of small- batch spirits. The Lock-In offers an exclusive guest list suited to the host’s own desires, with admission only granted to the best of the best.


Ramzey Choker, Co-Director of The Grounds of Alexandria said: “We created The Lock-In as a place guests can enjoy without being disturbed. A place where they can escape their everyday lives – drink, eat, and experience a whole lot of banter”.

Request the key and come inside. But you didn’t hear it from us.

The food offering will be fittingly suave to suit the room and atmosphere with three irresistible dining options to choose from. ‘The Potting Mix’ will see diners take their time and indulge in their choice of The Potting Shed menu delights from jumbo prawns, to chargrilled lamb cutlets, pulled pork or holmbrae chicken and more. As a second option, ‘A Fine Feast’, sees the wait staff personally prepare a mouthwatering feasting table for all to share including an enviable selection of meats, salads and loads more. Thirdly, the ‘Master & Chef’ offering takes things to a whole new level with guests enjoying their own private chef serving them with everything you could ask for, also including a delightful range of fresh locally sourced seafood.

The Lock-In is open to hire for functions and events. The venue will be available Monday through to Sunday with maximum capacity for seated dining at 20 persons and maximum for cocktail-style service at 40 persons.
