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

We came here on a rooftop bar walk. The setup looks great and we git in just before they started setting up for the evening cinema viewing. Worth going to see

Watched Casablanca at the rooftop cinema and it was really good. Drink prices a little high but the view and atmosphere at the top of old Melbourne town is great!!

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
