Casual rooftop dining with a view to wow
Transport Rooftop Bar is a chilled afterwork drinks and nibbles venue with views of the Yarra to blow your mind. The outside space is the perfect venue to blow the cobwebs away whilst enjoying some sharing platters with friends and sipping on some great wine. The balcony itself is worth a visit even without the amazing chilled vibe that the bar boasts. With an outlook spoiling you with views from the MCG to Southbank, including the Botanical Gardens, Yarra River and Melbourne Art centre precinct, this should be on any Melbourne sightseer’s itinerary.
Let the waitstaff shower you with gorgeous smorgasbords of tasting delights. The cheese platters with fruit bread and lavosh were a particular favourite, with the candied pork etching memories on the palate. With an extensive wine and cocktail menu there’s sure to be the perfect tipple to accompany your food, and if you’re in a big group make sure you sample the cocktail jugs – a perfect complement to the social dining.
The outdoor heaters keep you warm as the sun goes down, which makes this the perfect venue all year round. And as the bar changes from day to night and the Melbourne lights illuminate the city, all you can do is surrender, sit back and watch the world go by. When you’ve had your fill of the great view, food and drink, you’re only a hop, skip and jump away from Melbourne’s major transport links, with the iconic Finders Street Station at the venue’s doorstep. This really is a perfect after work drinks, social dining, and cool chill-out venue.
