“Amazing views and excellent cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Smallish bar with great seating to take in the views. The champagne and cocktails were great. Even the made up mocktail. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Very romantic place for before or after dinner drinks

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

We went for a cocktail and had one of the best ever. The view of Melbourne is well worth going for. The service could not be faulted. We were there quite early and it was already getting busy. We were lucky to get the last table by the window.

“Special Occasions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Best views in Melbourne, beautiful wine selection and awesome cheese platter. We enjoyed our evening there, once we got over the pretentious and off hand behavior handed out to us, by the guy behind the bar!!

However ... glad we didn't allow his behavior spoil our evening and once seated away from the bar, we were able to really enjoy all the good things about the place... and the rest of the lovely staff who provided us with friendly and prompt service.

Make sure you go to the bathrooms .... they are something else :)

“Sensational in every way - Congratulations Mr Bennett!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

We had visitors from London and suggested taking them to The Lui Bar for a drink and a view - from the moment we arrived in the lobby (and the guests were looking pretty back-packerish) everything was amazing. The service was unbelievable - the welcome - the attention - superb. The menu looks "tres ordinaire' but when the food arrives it just blows you away. The cheese and ham toasties, the chick pea fries and the cheese platter were amazing. The decor is very laid back and there is no rush and the view is pretty good as well. Very reasonable prices. Burj Khalifa in Dubai could certainly learn a thing or two here. Well done. Very proud that this is in Melbourne
