MELBOURNE | Open since 1967, Campari House is a popular multi story bar and restaurant on Hardware Lane. The dining room is on the ground floor, while further up you’ll find lounge bar, and further up still, the rooftop bar.
The food here is Italian, and all produce is Victoria sourced. Dishes like roasted pumpkin & ricotta ravioli with almond flakes, and burnt sage butter sauce, grilled lamb cutlets with caponata, spinach, and balsamic red wine sauce, and pizza can be found on the main dining menu, while the rooftop is home to a smaller, but still extensive, menu of things like pizza, sliders, and small plates.
For drinks the focus is on wine and cocktails, along with a few local and international beers on tap and in bottles. If you’re on the rooftop, try the refreshing Ragazza Infernale, a delicious concoction of tequila and coconut, chilli, fresh lime, and dry ginger ale. Downstairs in the lounge the drinks have a more ‘sophisticated’ feel. The Honey Badger – Jim Beam Rye Whiskey, Drambuie, almond syrup, orange & chocolate bitters, is great.
The indoor cocktail bar is always a great cozy option for a drink, while heaters and a retractable roof mean that the rooftop can be enjoyed year ’round too.
