Flowers are starting to bloom, the weather is warming up and Melbourne Spring Fashion Week is just about to start. Spring is coming!

And how better to celebrate the end of a long, miserable winter than with a cocktail and a bite to eat at one of Melbourne’s best rooftop bars?

 

Good Heavens

The people behind Fancy Hank’s are set to open their newest venue, Good Heavens, a rooftop bar on top of Bourke Street.

Featuring American bar food, an exciting range of cocktails – inspired by creations from the 1980s – and local DJs spinning on the decks, Good Heavens will be the perfect spot for those long summer nights.

Curtin House Rooftop Bar

An oldie but a goodie. When the weather starts to warm up, Melburnians flock to Rooftop Bar in droves.

With excellent views across the city and even better cocktail jugs, this is one place you’re going to want to check out.

Also, come December you’ll even be able to watch one of your favourite flicks at Rooftop Cinema.

Uncle

If you’re looking for something a little bit more low-key with a focus on good food, then Uncle is the rooftop bar for you.

With cocktails like the Mekong Splice (think a Mango Splice but alcoholic) and perfect finger food options (rice paper rolls and banh mi), this is the perfect place to spend those balmy nights.

Madame Brussels

Well if it isn’t the queen bee of Melbourne rooftop bars.

Part garden party, part retro tennis club, Madame Brussels is the glamorous spot to catch a bit of sun while enjoying a jug of Pimms and a fresh raspberry cupcake.

Siglo

Want to go to Europe without leaving Melbourne? Then Siglo is the rooftop bar for you.

With stunning views of Parliament House, this is a beautiful spot to have a glass of wine and watch the world go by.

Transit Bar

Sundays in the city are about to get a whole lot more fun. From October 9, Transit Rooftop Bar will become home to a new event called Sunday Grazing.

From 11am you can graze on the delicious offerings from executive chef Tony Twitchett and sip on Dal Zotto Prosecco.

We’ve found your new Sunday session.

Naked in the sky

When it comes to the northside, it doesn’t get much better than Naked for Satan’s other half – Naked in the Sky.

With views across Fitzroy, the open terrace has an attached bar, lounge and restaurant, perfect for those warm spring nights.

Union Dining

We all know Union Dining is a great spot for dinner, but did you know it had an incredible rooftop terrace?

Complete with its own bar, the al fresco dining area is the perfect escape from the busy streets below.
