Absolutely delicious cocktails which can be served in jugs to share - what more could you want?
Really nice and relaxed vibe; perfect for catching up with friends over a few quiet drinks.

It might be age dimming my sight or just simply the fact that the place to quote others is so 'cool' that the target clientele just know where it is. Having found the entrance early on a Friday evening we then plucked up courage to enter. A rather unwelcoming set of concrete stairs leading upwards or a rickety looking lift. If it were back home I would have had doubts about going up. Anyway we plucked up courage and reached the roof. The Friday night after works drinks scene was in full flight, however the bar staff found us a table overlooking the street so all was set for a few cocktails. And excellent they were but don't have too many if you have a mortgage to pay.
It's a fun place particularly when the weather was as hot as when we visited Melbourne and well worth a visit for a few cocktails or pre dinner drinks. The young(ish) ' cool' crowd can then be left in peace.

Madame Brussels is different, most friendly, fabulous escape from reality, even for just a few hours. A great little hide a way for friends to catch up and let loose for awhile. the strawberry and chocolate fondue is to die for...Also try the best whiskey sour's in the world. So if you are looking for a fun day or night out with friends for any reason, try Madame's. Also there is a dining room out back for private parties..decor fabulously decadent.

Very cool cocktail bar that is Alice in Wonderland themed right down to the astro turf under the tables on the roof terrace. We enjoyed a couple of very good cocktails that were reasonably priced. The atmosphere is very cool and fun this is a very cool place to hang out.

There is a saying about Melbourne... Find a rooftop, a bolt-hole down a laneway or a basement space and you'll find a bar, an eatery or a space that soon will be. Usually with little signage. That is part of the fun, a sense of shared secret. Once you climb the stairs here, the astro turf carpet is just the start of the tennis theme, staff in cute player outfits etc, as this venue opens up tardis-like, indoors and outdoors, verandas upstairs and down. The service we found was warm, friendly, prompt. The surrounds delightful on a packed summer afternoon. And when we felt we'd drunk a little more than we expected (must have been the heat), their board with small sausage rolls did the trick. We ordered another immediately. There was something almost Alice in Wonderland about this place. Parasols for the ladies in the sun, small wading pools with tables for two, shoes off and cool off :) making this yet another place we add to our list for a return visit or two or three. Cheers, indeed.
