Imperial Hotel Rooftop Bar in Melbourne

Parliament House, skyline
Pub grub
Year round


Classic venue, mixing sports bar with Parliament House & skyline views.

Perched on the 3rd floor, and also Melbourne's 3rd oldest pub, the Imperial Hotel rooftop bar is located in the heart of CBD Melbourne and comes with a fantastic view over the Parliament House and the city skyline. Classic and modern waterhole for both locals and visitors.

The rooftop bar at Imperial Hotel has a big wooden deck terrace with plenty of stylish bar stool seating and lounge sofas. Open and airy for summer day and nights, but also equipped with cover and heaters to keep everyone warm during the winter as well. If the weather gets to bad you can also move to the downstairs indoor pub and restaurant.

Imperial Hotel Bourke Street is a classic pub with a modern update, so as you would expect the range of beers is large, but also complemented with fresh cocktails and innovative and tasty pub grub.

Apart from this and a great and relaxed atmosphere, it is also one of the top rooftop bars in Melbourne to catch live sporting events, shown every day on large screens.
