Came here on a very special night and the staff were very helpful and attentive. I loved the chickpea fries which went well with the drinks. The prices are really worth it just for the amazing view and great service. Only hassle was the parking, so please don't drive there or it might spoil your night.

The spectacular views over Melbourne and out to sea were wonderful on the clear evening we visited for pre dinner cocktails. From the greeting on ground level by the concierge to the rapid lift ride up 55 floors this was a memorable event. The mixologists were masters of their craft creating stunning cocktails in front of us great nighy

Love love love the Lui Bar! We've been to the bar on many occasions and love the amazing staff and view of Melbourne. We came to the bar for our anniversary and love the intimacy there. The drinks are quite expensive but it pays off when you can see as far as the eye can see with amazing staff caring... More

You access this bar from the lobby in the Rialto building. You wait until the staff at the counter tell you that you can go up, which has taken me minutes or aaaggggeeeesss, depending on the night. Only a very limited number of people are allowed up at a time, so it is never crowded. The drinks are good, but... More

This is a great view of Melbourne to take visitors to and to me the only reason you would bother to go. Drinks prices are reasonable and you can get a light beer for $7. We tried to get in on Saturday but our guest was wearing Habiana thongs and we were refused entry. As the guy on the reception... More

When holidaying in Melbourne, a friend who lives locally recommended The Lui Bar for a good cocktail. He warned us that there could be a long wait. We went on a Tuesday night so the wait wasn't too long - 15 minutes maybe. Nothing compared to the wait to enter a nightclub. I don't understand why people are giving negative... More
