In terms of location, affability and atmosphere The Waterside Hotel is the new refurbished place to enjoy a refreshing drink on any occasion. Offering an array of levels to enjoy.

The Public Bar

Walk in from Flinders Street and be enveloped by a little piece of early Melbourne history. You’ll be greeted by a large, traditionally styled public bar, specialising in rare, predominantly American craft beers.

The Bubble House

Located on level 1, the dedicated Champagne and cocktail lounge has a drinks list curated by Kevin Peters, the Bubble House is the secret you never knew you needed to know – until now. It offers a private entrance, bar, bathrooms and smoking area. The groovy booth seating offers another dimension to the space which makes it perfect for private cocktail events.

The Roof

Right up on level two, high above the hustle and bustle of the CBD, you will find The Roof (formerly known as “The Deck”), one of Melbourne’s original rooftop bars offering spectacular views of the city skyline. Get amongst the excitement on the roof for an after work beverage or a dance on Saturday night. The bar has a great selection of beers and cocktails for any occasion.

The Dog House

The Dog House is a cross between an American dive bar and an American sports bar, where posh dogs, tinnies and bottled cocktails hero the menu. Enter via Mercantile Place and fall into a world without boundaries and where rules and inhibitions are left behind.
