Top ways to experience Madame Brussels
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Bustling with good atmosphere
Nov 2019 • Family
A rooftop bar near parliament named after a reputed brothel owner who had all the local politicians in her pocket (allegedly). The owner has had fun with this association with double entendres un the menu and signage, and a very interesting staff dress code. There are plenty of parasols around to use if you're sitting in the sun.
Quite a few cocktails in the menu; we had a jug of Mocow Mule that went down like lemonade. There were no mocktails in the menu but the waiter asked our daughter what flavours she like and made one for her.
There us a food menu but we only had a snack of bread and hummus which was very nice.
It was very busy, and our only choice amof seats were bot that comfortable. Would go again if I was in the area.

Perfect spot balmy afternoon

Great drinks, music, people and snacks, and the best thing is sitting in a garden setting on the CBD building top. Highly recommended for an afternoon/evening drink outdoors when the weather is warm (or not).

Always fun

Great music, great atmosphere- Madame Brussels is just a little bit....different. Take the time to read through the menu, and titter at the double-entendres (I recommend NOT googling anything the menu suggests you google though!!! 😱). Enjoy the cocktails and the fabulousness of the environs.
I’ve been here a few times, and the staff are always totally fabulous, although tonight, there were a few times we had to wave our arms to get noticed. Aside from that, the Madame always gives you a good time.
Definitely worth braving the dodgy doorway and the rickety lift!

I love bringing guests here - it never fails to amaze people !
From the shady doorway and lift you step back in time to some vintage lawn tennis club complete with grandmas vintage garden setting or floral sofa !
The drinks are fabulous and the food is good ! Love sitting outside in a warm spring day !!!

Good for a drink at Sunset
Aug 2018 • Friends
Madame Brussels is one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets.

If you want a place to go for a drink or a bite to eat, go out on the balcony and watch the Melbourne sunset.

Funky furniture and check out the staff uniforms... brilliant!!

We popped in before seeing mamma Mia and had a Love Juice to share. It was really delicious and I loved drinking it under a clay blanket under the awesome heating outside!

Great Place for Summer Cocktails
Dec 2017
I've been to Madame Brussels a number of times and have always enjoyed myself. They serve a great selection of old style and very re-refreshing cocktails. Well worth a visit if you are in Melbourne and a great place for international visitors.

The staff here were very helpful.

Post theatre drinks

I will definitely return again to Madame Brussels as we had a wonderful afternoon after a matinee performance at the theatre. The cocktails were yummy and really good value. We also devoured some divine cupcakes whilst we soaked up the ambience of this rooftop bar. Lovely service too!

Cute, quirky, and delicious cocktails!
Mar 2018
This place is a must, especially if you love 50s retro nostalgia and need drinks with the girls! The decor is exquisite and the drinks menu to die for! Delicious cocktails, albeit a little weak for my liking! Gorgeous quirky bar with exceptional staff that will stop at nothing to help - they even let my friend charge her phone after a long day out in Melbourne! Fantastic!
