Top 5 Summer Drinking Decks

Summer watering holes with views
Better late than never, our good weather has finally arrived and it’s time to enjoy in an outdoor environment that spells “summertime”.
The Stokehouse
A St Kilda icon, The Stokehouse literally offers the best views of the beach (because it’s on the beach). The new renovations provide more stunning views (should you tire of staring out at the sea) and the cocktail selection compliments the scenery and vibe ensuring a good time to be had by all.

Madame Brussels
If you like your rooftops to have a vintage flavour or maybe the feel of astroturf under your feet appeals, then the fabulous views of Melbourne’s city skyline and the jugs of Pimms will just be icing on the cake at this unique and kitsch rooftop watering hole.

For serious rooftop views coupled with an impressive wine collection (think hundreds of choices), Siglo offers a boutique rooftop experience of drinking and lounging and all in a style that only Melbourne knows how to deliver.

If you suffer from vertigo yet love the “concept” of rooftop drinks, you can enjoy the benefits without the fear at Riverland. Set alongside the Yarra river, this bar is perfect for a Sunday afternoon session or after work drinks with a laid back vibe. We recommend the bar food of tapas and gourmet snags.

Belgian Beer Garden
Although not technically a deck, the Belgian Beer Garden is a Sunday summer afternoon institution and is exactly how you should spend your free time – drinking with friends outdoors, enjoying the scenery (people and views) and relaxing.
