The Public Bar is the main entry point of the pub as you walk in from Flinders St. Prepare to be enveloped by a little piece of early Melbourne history with iconic furniture and direct access to the large bar. This area is suitable for up to 50 guests cocktail style.

The Bubble House

The Bubble House, located on level 1 is a dedicated Champagne and cocktail lounge with a drinks list curated by Kevin Peters. It features old-world couches, its own private entrance, bar, bathrooms and smoking area.

The Roof

Right up on level 2, 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.
