Brew with a view

Whether your favourite brew is of the leaf, grain or bean variety, we’ve found the best spots for you to enjoy it while taking in some of Melbourne’s to-die-for views.

The Terrace

For a cuppa in spectacular surrounds, escape to The Terrace Tea Rooms in the Royal Botanic Gardens. Not ready to go back to work yet? Grab a gourmet picnic box to go and take a guided punt tour of Ornamental Lake.

World Restaurant & Bar

World Restaurant & Bar at Southbank is the prefect place to enjoy an after-work drink and debrief on the day. Choose from a selection of Aussie craft beers and international favourites, while tucking into some tasty fare from the grazing menu. You can’t go past the jalapeno and cheddar croquettes!

Ponyfish Island

If you’ve wondered what all the fuss is about, then get yourself to Ponyfish Island under the Pedestrian Bridge at Southbank and find out. The service is friendly, the food affordable and the beer cold – enough said.

The Munich Brauhaus offers you not only beer but ‘bier’ straight from Deutschland. Sip on a stein and treat your palate to one of their many pork dishes, with 899 of your closest friends in this 900 seat German Beer house in the heart of South Wharf Promenade.

The Lui Bar

If it’s elegance you’re after, Vue de Monde’s flagship bar is the place to be. The Lui Bar is 55 floors up and delivers unsurpassable Melbourne views with some of the most delicious cocktails in the city. We opted for the Vodka Coffee Pour Over, their take on the espresso martini. If heaven is a cocktail bar, then this is it.
