Much-anticipated all-day venue Beverly graces the top of the Goldfields House building, soaring 24 storeys above Chapel Street and delivering show-stopping 270-degree views across the city.

Helmed by Cameron Northway (founder of LOTI, Rocker Bondi and drinks company Sweet&Chilli), along with Goldfields' Marco Gattino and Lachlan Thompson, Beverly is designed as a serene, sky-high retreat that'll glide easily from a long lunch destination to after-dinner cocktail pit-stop.

Taking cues from the cool-kid rooftop haunts of LA, the indoor-outdoor space has been imagined by acclaimed Melbourne studio Mitchell & Eades (Grill AmericanoCarlton Wine RoomRock Sugar). Boasting a retractable glass roof primed for Melbourne's erratic weather changes, it's a vision of earthy sunset tones and foliage set against that backdrop of sweeping panoramas.

Sippers of all persuasions have found themselves a new haven up here, thanks to a broad selection of drops that celebrate local goodness. Biodynamic and organic pours rule the expansive wine list, while the globe-trotting cocktail lineup reimagines the classics using Aussie spirits and native botanicals.

From the open kitchen, chef David Ball (the UK's Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons, The Glass House in Hobart) delivers a menu anchored in seasonality and sustainability. It has swagger yet remains approachable, bundling southern Californian influences with a touch of modern Australian flair.
