MELBOURNE | HER Rooftop is the new venue from the people behind Arbory Bar & Eatery, and Arbory Afloat. Housed in the recently renovated Pacific House, a heritage listed building dating back to 1903, HER Rooftop is just one part of this five storey venue.
It’s a bright, fun space, inspired by the Mediterranean. Cue Italian marble floors, tiled mosaics, orange velvet banquettes, and Parisian skirted stools. Glass balustrades, dual retractable yellow awnings, and heaters, means that it’s a space that you can visit to enjoy the expansive city views any time of year.
Cocktails are very popular here and, like Arbory, the most popular ones can be found ready to go on tap. It helps to ensure zippier service than might usually be the case at a venue as popular as this. Think things like Negronis, Palomas, and Gimlets. There’s also other cocktails made to order, a few mocktails, and a decent selection of wine and beer.
For food, it’s small plates from Thai restaurant BKK downstairs. Things like fish cakes, curry puffs and rock oysters with coconut cream and nam prik pao.
Below HER Rooftop and BKK, you’ll find Music Room, a soundproof bar and vinyl listening space fitted with warm timber panels and velvet booths. Below this, at ground level, it’s HER Bar, a Parisian inspired cocktail bar and eatery that’s open from breakfast until late at night, with an offering of French-inspired dishes.
