Spent a sunny Sunday afternoon drinking cocktails and craft beer here. Very enjoyable. Nice atmosphere. We didn’t eat here but the burgers and fries that people ordered around us looked delicious! A lovely rooftop bar in the centre of Melbourne.

Melbourne is known for its quirky, hidden rooftop bars so we came looking for this one. If you don't mind some stairs - which we don't - then get up there. There is actually a lift but it was easier to walk than to wait....More

We heard of the rooftop bar upon arrival in Melbourne so we decided to go. Search the location before you leave, because you can’t see it from the street. When we walked in it wasn’t very busy yet, but service can be kind of slow...More

to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
