I’ll never forget the tour group we met at Essendon Airport a few years back. An extended family of 12 guests aged from 80 to around 14. We’re talking a private jet and deluxe hotels. These guys travelled in real style.
We only had a few hours to show them Melbourne, so we did a quick Chinatown discovery walk, talked about the city’s history, tasted farmhouse cheese at Spring Street and then up to the Bomba rooftop Bar. And boy, what a welcome.
Nothing was too much trouble with age appropriate mocktails, stunning wines and a list of craft beers. Food flowed too with marinated olives, wafer thin jamon, baked chorizo, crispy croquettes and seafood paella. Bomba offered beautiful hospitality to this group, and I’ve experienced it many times since with friends.
I’m a huge fan of Bomba and I will happily tell everyone I meet to visit this Lonsdale Street rooftop to experience outstanding Melbourne hospitality (with a Spanish touch).
