This was a lovely place to enjoy a drink on a balmy November night in Melbourne. The various cocktails that are served in small to large jugs are a great idea for sharing with others. I know that the theme of the place is supposed to be very 'girly' and that would be my only complaint, the wire outdoor chairs... More

Get place to meet for a birthday or girly night out. A small group of us went for a birthday and started off with cocktails. I only went once over the two years that I lived in Melbourne, so I wish I went more.

ABSOLUTE MUST VISIT for ladies. For men too as the menu- both food and drinks has alot to offer, but more than anything a perfect place for a ladies night or to kick of a hens night etc. The cocktail menu is extremely impressive and value for money sharing jugs is a good idea. The place is so pretty and... More

I was taken here by some friends who are local to Melbourne and loved this hidden spot. You really have to know it is there, and then as you enter upstairs a garden party vibe with plenty of cheekiness and parasols greets you. The menu is full of double entendres as the venue was apparently once a well known brothel.... More

If you want something different try this. The entry is not that prominent and the lift is small and antiquated, but once you get to the bar its great. Service was very good even though the place was reasonably crowded. As you are in the open, ie on the top deck of the building it can be quite warm in... More

If you want a beautiful setting (because it is!), like staff that are incompetent, staff that look like and act like 15 year olds (huddling around a magic box giggling and avoiding eye contact!), staff that dress like pornstyle Eddie Rockets girls, and you like to wait over 45 minutes for a glass of vino and pot of fondue, then...

Popped up here for a jug of fabulous vodka, watermelon, rose water and vanilla cocktails with friends. Could have stayed for hours but we were heading out to dinner. Casual, fun and loved the parasols keeping the sun off us.

What a gorgeous little place! On a mild Saturday night we took advantage of the open terrace and enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff were very helpful, drinks were delicious and we also enjoyed some of their nibblies (cheese/dip platters, olives etc). Highly recommended!

We spent a lovely afternoon sippling cocktails in the sun at Madame Brussels. Its a cute, cool rooftop bar, and 10 minutes walk from the middle of Melbourne. If you like cocktails and want a good one in the sun, try this out. I had the BEST Mojito Ive ever had here, and the girls had a jug of something... More

Overlooking the Melbourne skyline from the rooftop terrace; Madame Brussels is a quaint explosion of pink and retro stylings, with even the wait staff in theme! The cocktails, singular or jug are delicious, the backdrop is a bonus!
