Similarly, you may ask, what does the Chestnut Tree Cafe symbolize?
Winston here is sitting in the Chestnut Tree Café, after his release from the Ministry of Love. The chestnut tree symbolizes chastity, honesty, and justice; hence, the Party too. In fact, it represents irony that, in the name of justice, honesty, and chastity, only betrayal occurs.
Likewise, what is Winston drinking at the Chestnut Tree Café? Winston Smith is at the Chestnut Tree Cafe, drinking Victory Gin and listening to the telescreens. Winston's life has changed; he no longer works at his former job, and no one seems to care much what he does.
Additionally, what is the Chestnut Cafe?
The Chestnut Tree Cafe is the place Winston first sees Julia after that disastrous day in the room above Mr. Charrington's shop. At that point there is nothing left between them. They no longer love each other, they don't really have any true emotions left to them.
In what context is the Chestnut Tree Cafe mentioned?
The next time the Chestnut Tree Café is mentioned is when Winston recalls the release of Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford – “relics of the ancient world” (65) and “outlaws, enemies, untouchables, doomed with absolute certainty to extinction” (65). They had previously confessed to treason against the Party.
