Good Heavens

Good Heavens is a rooftop bar above Fancy Hanks.

The bar menu continues the Americana theme of the barbeque restaurant downstairs: think $9 cheeseburgers; nachos with brisket mole; fried cauliflower with vegan ranch dressing; and artichoke dip with crudités.

There are ten beer taps and an impressive list of beer by the bottle, with pilsners, sours and more from Australia but also New Zealand, the US and plenty from Europe.

But the focus here is cocktails. The list is littered with old favourites such as a Harvey Wallbanger, Mai Tai and Pina Colada, although each has been given an upgrade: the rum for the Pina Colada has been coconut-fat-washed, for example, and the downstairs smoker is used to smoke syrups.

The look has a Miami or Palm Springs vibe; lots of pastel, ’70s- and ’80s-inspired cocktails. DJs play each weekend, and the space can fit up to 200 people.
