Summer Sipping: Best Rooftop Bars - InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto

Summer Sipping: Best Rooftop Bars


Relaxing drink in hand enjoying a warm summer breeze whilst overlooking the lights of the city is one of the simple pleasures to bask in this summer in Melbourne. To assist you in your quest to find the perfect locale to realise these halcyon dreams, here are three of our top rooftop bars.

  1. Siglo, 161 Spring Street

The view from Siglo showcases some iconic Melbourne vistas that take you back to the glamour days of Melbourne’s past. This rooftop terrace bar overlooks St Patrick’s Cathedral and Parliament House and is located above The Melbourne Supper Club. Enjoy the extensive cocktail and wine menu in this rather sophisticated locale and even indulge in the supper menu with some foie gras or crème brûlée.


  1. Bomba, 103 Lonsdale Street

Home to authentic Spanish tapas, Bomba’s rooftop bar sits atop the 2 storey modern bodega inspired restaurant. Try the adventurous cocktail menu featuring heavy lashings of Negroni and enjoy the relaxed vibe of this rooftop styled around a Spanish workers bar.

  1. Lui Bar, Level 55, Rialto Tower, 525 Collins Street

While not technically a rooftop bar, Lui Bar is so high in the sky and affords such stunning views of the city, that it cannot be left off the list. Located right next door to the hotel, Lui Bar is the companion venue to Shannon Bennet’s Vue de Monde, this bar is a destination unto itself. The cocktail menu prides itself on innovation, so try something new as you breathe in the expansive view of Melbourne from on high.
