This taqueria is a simple kind of place, with just two beers on tap and tunes spinning away on the turntables behind the bar. Local hospitality workers like to stick their heads in for a quick chat and a taco before their shift. It’s open until late on weekends, so many return for a wind-down drink after work too.
This rooftop bar, which sits above the Melbourne Supper Club, has unrivalled views of Spring Street and Parliament House. It's also one of the few spots in Melbourne that has its own cigar menu – there's even a humidor full of hard-to-find Cubans. If that's not your style, the cocktails are equally excellent.
Marquis of Lorne
This classic pub – which has stood on its corner for over 150 years – is one of Melbourne's best. The three-level hotel is the ideal place for a good feed or a knock-off pint in the sun, whether you're downstairs in the front bar, upstairs in the dining room, or soaking in rays on the rooftop.
At this big, relaxed pub by the team behind The Marquis of Lorne, there are a lot of spaces to choose from. There's the downstairs front bar, with 10 taps serving crafts and classics. Upstairs, a dining room with a pub and bistro menu. And on the roof, a terrace bar with views out over Richmond.
This is a welcoming place – that’s thanks to the design: with its plump, comfy couches, carefree decor; sharehouse-esque fairy-lit courtyard and huge light-bringing windows. The food is just as accessible – it’s a changeable affair that might involve pumpkin with burrata one night, or a barbequed carrot showered with shards of crunchy chicken skin the next. The Victorian-leaning wine list and punchy cocktails are equally crowd-pleasing.
This extravagant rooftop can best be described as a cross between a garden party and a country club bar. In the middle of the city, on top of a skyscraper. Madame Brussels is famously over-the-top, and it revels in it. Come here for big jugs of Pimms and poached chicken sandwiches.
Wolf of the Willows
Wolf of the Willows is one of Melbourne's most exciting and consistently excellent beer brands. In 2021, it finally got a place to call its own – a production facility featuring 115-seat taproom with 12 rotating beers. Also on the menu: hard seltzers, cold brew coffee and mud crab burgers.
This winery is a great visit. There’s something for everyone. Although T’Gallant specialises in pinot grigio, there’s a full stable of wines to try, including rose, pinot noir and all the other usual suspects. The matching pizzas are best eaten in the huge Italian-inspired courtyard, with views out over the vines .
The Cornish Arms
This pub is renowned for two reasons. One: it's got one of the most vegan-friendly menus in Melbourne – meaning meat-eaters and herbivores alike can enjoy whatever pub classic they feel like. Two: its sunny and expansive rooftop bar is surely one of the best in Brunswick. With its great view of the skyline, it definitely has the best view.
