Swanston St, Melbourne

The most iconic rooftop bar in Melbourne is the appropriately named Rooftop Bar.

At 7 floors high, this local favourite offers a panoramic city vista, paired with a decent cocktail menu.

The floors below Rooftop Bar are home to other much-loved venues – Mesa Verda, The Toff and Cookie, are all worth visiting in their own right.

With only a quick elevator ride between them, might we suggest a mini bar-crawl is in order.
