MELBOURNE | Johnny’s Green Room is the rooftop bar at the recently reopened and revamped King & Godfree on Lygon Street, which first opened in 1884 and has been owned by the Valmorbida family since 1955. Named after a popular 1960s and 70s late night Carlton bar, the new Johnny’s Green Room is a very different beast from its namesake.

The entrance is via the previously inaccessible King & Godfree Lane on the side of the building, and up a lift which takes you up to the third floor. When you step out you’re greeted with sweeping views of Melbourne – across Carlton to the skyscrapers of the CBD, church spires of Collingwood, and the Dandenong ranges.

It’s a casual space with marble topped tables, potted plants, and peach terrazzo benches Brick dividing walls help break up the space, and there are fireplaces and a part-retractable roof for when the cooler months of the year.

Behind the 15 metre long bar you’ll find an offering of cocktails, local and imported craft beer and commercial lagers, and a wide selection of wine. Try the Princess Peach, a combination of peach vermouth, White Light vodka, lemon, soda, and hopped grapefruit, or the Strawberry G&T – Poor Tom’s strawberry gin, tonic, and lemon messina.

The food menu is full of Italian influenced bar favourites. Think pork-and-fennel sausage rolls, salumi plates, tomato and cheese arancini, and Pidapipo choc tops.

Melburnians love a rooftop bar, and with Johnny’s Green Room, Carlton is now home to one of the best rooftop bars in town. And that’s before you get to the other venues that form part of the new King & Godfree ‘precinct’, like K&G Gastronomia Deli & Espresso Bar, Agostino & Cellar Bar, and Pidapipo.

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.
