The Waterslide Bar is a fusion of old and modern, creating the pleasant impression of being somewhere familiar, yet new. It’s another of Melbourne’s typical best secret-bars; rather, it’s out there for everyone to enjoy and wanting to be enjoyed; bringing some sophisticated and delicious fun to the south side of the river.
The Waterslide team, with its many years of experience has compiled unique beverage lists of the finest whiskeys [Including the rarest whiskies], gins, vodkas, rums, ciders, cocktails and craft beers.
The cocktail menu is more of a sophisticated menu and the drinks look and taste fantastic. All the staff at Waterslide have contributed in the process and it is something they are all very proud of. The menu itself is designed to be like a journal from someone who has frequented many bars and these are his / her favourite drinks. The menu is aftly named ‘Explorations of a drunkard’. There are 3 different sections in the menu and for the first time they have put a few classic cocktails in. Probably a bit more obscure classics than most people know but very loved amongst the bartending community and feel they should be appreciated. They also have signature cocktails along with a section of bottled cocktails, with the team's favourite being cereal milk which was inspired by “Milk Bar New York”, it’s a great new innovative drink and definitely fun!

With the stunning million-dollar views of the Yarra River and of the city skyline, Waterslide is the ideal venue for corporate functions, product launches, birthday parties, anniversaries, EOFY functions and of course Christmas parties. Their spaces offer great flexibility with spaces ideal for groups between 10 and 30, an enclosed and heated balcony for groups of up to 70 and full venue hire of up to 220.
Waterslide Bar is a stunning, sometimes intimidating venue overlooking the Yarra River. The drinks are perfection and staff are smartly polished with vests, ties and arm garters. BUT this is not who they really are! The team want to create a fun, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere that everyone can feel happy to be present within.
