Best Melbourne CBD Rooftop Bars

MELBOURNE | Melburnians love a good rooftop bar, and over the past few years the number of rooftop bars around the city has increased significantly. There’s something special about enjoying a drink on a rooftop, taking in fresh air and great views.

From the laneway vibes of Whitehart and Union Electric, to the luxe atmosphere at QT, and the Spanish influences at Bomba, there’s no shortage of variety available to keep you interested and entertained. Looking for a focus on wine, craft beer, cocktails or perhaps a decent feed? Melbourne rooftop bars have you covered.

Something else that’s great about Melbourne’s rooftop bars? Most of them have heating and some kind of cover be it retractable awnings or umbrellas. Which means there’s no need to wait until summer or a fine day to enjoy one of Melbourne’s rooftop bars.

Here’s our list of what we think are the best rooftop bars in Melbourne’s CBD. Stay tuned for our list of top suburban rooftops coming soon.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
