Rooftop bar views can be expansive and sweeping across city skylines, harbours and rivers. But sometimes the view can be very tight, architectural and limited to a specific vista. Siglo rooftop bar is a case in point with the view looking across Spring Street to the tree tops of Parliament Gardens park, the spires of St Patrick’s cathedral and Parliament House.
The rooftop is enclosed on one side by The Princess Theatre with its stunningly restored dome. It’s quite a setting and a large retractable roof ensures all weather usage.
There’s great cocktails (naturally), plus outstanding food and wine. This comes as Siglo is a part of the European restaurant empire, so they have access to incredible wines, spirits, cheese and hospitality expertise.
Like many venues in Melbourne it takes a bit of searching for. Entry is from a single doorway on Spring Street, then requires a few staircases. But getting on to the rooftop makes it all worthwhile.
Siglo is a real favourite of mine and should be on your to- do list, book in soon. Siglo Bar is online here.
