Captain Baxter

While not strictly speaking a “rooftop”, the deck on which this bar resides provides excellent views of both the beachgoers of St Kilda and the beautiful people of Republica, the venue below. It’s a people-watcher’s dream come true! Head over with your date for $10 cocktail hour on weeknights from 5pm to 7pm.

Rooftop at QT

This one’s for all of you daters looking to impress that special someone. The views of the city from this bar at night are nothing short of breathtaking, but remember to dress up a little as this rooftop does err a little more on the fancier side. To get to this high-flying bar, just head to the hotel’s main entrance and a staff member will show you the way.

Rooftop Bar at Curtin House

While this bar is currently under renovation till late August 2017, it’s sheer iconism guarantees it a spot on our list. Once it reopens, head over to enjoy amazing views, great music, delicious food, and from December till March, even an outdoor cinema. This bar has all the fixings for a great date, and if the views don’t take your date’s breath away, then perhaps the seven floor walk-up will.

Goldilocks Bar

No you won’t find any vengeful bears or thieving little girls here, what you will find however, is an extensive list of delicious drinks and an endless supply of good vibes. Even with bustling Swanston Street and Noodle Kingdom below, Goldilocks is quite a cosy and intimate bar, offering the perfect setting to a perfect date.
