I've lived in Melbourne during summers season and during an exploring day I found this roof top bar. I love Madame. Everything around you will give you fresh power, energy, happiness, love and freedom. An amazing view of the city surround you drinking good cocktails . So nice !

Welcome to Alice in wonderful ! Such a beautiful decor ! The mocktail is awesome (despite the frozen berry). It's very nice to have a drink with your friend on terrace :) I will go back there to have a drink by night :)

I went to Madame Brussels with a girlfriend last weekend for some drinks. The atmosphere was nice and the style quirky but fun. I absolutely loved the comfy, high backed armchairs, with accompanying footstools we were able to sit on! Was lovely to relax! The only thing slightly lacking was the service. We approached the bar and was told it... More

Visited the very popular Madame Brussels for a pre dinner drink on Saturday night. We sat outside and enjoyed the view (and heating) whilst sipping "The Madames Guwein' served in a teapot with knitted tea cosy and china cups. Fun atmosphere and something a bit different. Loved it!

I enjoyed Madame Brussels. They had a pretty big selection of cocktails, plus they can make ones that aren't listed, such as a Cosmopolitan. It's a lovely garden place, inside and out. It has a very nice view of the city, and they have heaters outside for the Winter, so you'll always be warm.

Cold, Saturday lunchtime spiced up with an early afternoon visit to the very gorgeous Madame Brussels, friendly staff, outdoor seating on rooftop with heaters and individual blankets. Delicious sausage rolls and humus dip, very nicely presented with a jug of Mai Tai. What a great place. Keep up the good work, the banter and that adorable cocker spaniel.

Nothing to complain, except that the recommendations I read and the insider tips I got from the local tour were heavily over-rated. Imagine a normal coffee/bar with a menu card in pink and the word "gay" has been added to every sentence. Other then that I can't think of anything original or special. It has a nice roof-top, but the... More

Well, what can go wrong? A bit Alice in Wonderland, garden party meets brothel theme going on. This is a great place to visit for a quick drink on a good Melbourne day – it has a rooftop area as well as indoor area. It's pretty cold outside in Winter, even with the heaters - however, blankets are handed out... More
