From a sixth-floor outdoor perch on Brunswick Street, the panorama at Altitude extends from the Valley’s heritage brick buildings in the east to the towers of the CBD in the south.

Altitude at Foresters opened in August 2019 on top of the heritage-listed Foresters’ Hall on Brunswick Street. The sophisticated rooftop lounge features half-circle booths, timber tables, sleek black seating and clusters of greenery.

There’s a creative cocktail list here, with a blend of classic and original drinks. The If You Musk is a popular option, with Absolut vodka shaken with musk syrup, elderflower liquor and lemon juice. Other drinks put a decadent twist on old classics and include an Amaretto Brulee and a Salted Caramel Espresso Martini served with a salted popcorn garnish.

Altitude’s straightforward food menu is designed to be shared, taking a much more relaxed approach than its downstairs counterpart. There’s salt and pepper calamari garnished with finger lime, grazing plates with Australian cheeses alongside cured meats, pickles and bread, and stone-baked pizzas with toppings such as parmigiana, margherita, Hawaiian and more.
