MELBOURNE | The Rooftop at QT is the signature bar at the top of the boutique QT hotel on Russell Street. The fitout keeps in line with the QT brand, luxe and glamorous, and impresses with a garden terrace that offers visitors sweeping views across the CBD. In many ways it feels more Sydney than Melbourne.
The bar attracts the after work crowd, and the crowd that likes to be seen, enjoying drinks and socialising while listening to the ambient soundtrack of chilled house tunes. Whether or not that’s your thing, it can’t be denied that this is a nice space.
Cocktails are the highlight here. The G&T mixes West Winds gin with house-made elderflower syrup, cucumber soda and rosemary, while the Yarra Valley Sour mixes Four Pillars Gin, fresh lemon, orange blossom and pinot noir. If you don’t want cocktails here’s a decent, if pricey, selection of local and international wines of all styles, plenty of spirits, and an OK selection of mostly lagers for beer drinkers.
For food it’s globally inspired snacks like BBQ prawn skewers, eggplant spiced yoghurt, and a beef burger.
A retractable roof and heating means that the space can be enjoyed all year round, no matter the temperature or weather.
