good rooftop bar

Went there with a couple of friends and got a bottle of wine. Good recommendation by waitstaff, friendly service and very interesting place. Downside is the walk up of 5 stories.

This is a different way to enjoy drinks and a platter on a Melbourne roof top. Service can be patchy and surprisingly for a bar that makes Earl Grey Cocktails, they make ghastly tea.

What a fantastic hidden gem this is! We were recommended this place by a friend - lucky as we would never have found it otherwise! I can see why the locals like to keep this venue to themselves! Marvelous cocktails, quirky interior, superb vibe and excellent staff! I will go back and I recommend anyone to pay this place a... More

This is by far the most pretentious and tryhardy place I have ever been to. The drinks are watered down and expensive, the clientele and the wait staff are ridiculous rather than "quirky" which is how this place is designed to appear.

The Hidden Gem of Melbourne 'Madame Brussels', what a lovely name for a restaurant, conjuring up images of our continent rather than Australia: ah, but where was it? Well, to tell the truth we would never have found it but for an Australian friend who was showing us around the city. Firstly, it's not at street level and it's entrance... More

Find this great place after trekking up 4 flights of stairs and quickly had to quench my thirst! Their cheeky menus cater to all tastes and their 'playing doubles' sized cocktails are perfect! Had the ginge minge and the sour amaretto, the flavors were perfect. Staff were great and we left very satisfied

A rooftop bar with a great vibe and service. Well this is how I recommended this bar to my partner-quirky but fun. On my recent visit I was very disappointed. It was a hot day in melb and we went for pre dinner drinks. OBVIOUSLY we were wearing our invisible cloaks as NO ONE noticed we were there. We had... More

Madame Brussels is worth the few flights of stairs that you have to climb to get there (the lift was out of order). Not sure why all the staff have to be in tennis gear? We had a lovely jug of sangria and shared olives, hummus and some nice bread, all very pleasant and relaxed. The service was very good.

If you are in a cheeky mood and need a tipple to match Madame B is the place to go! We popped in on a very busy sunny Saturday afternoon! Place was packed but Madame sent us off to the bar and scrounged us up some seats! Cocktails are fantastic and value for money! Tounge in cheek names and just... More
