The first sky-high venture from the guys behind Arbory and Arbory Afloat, this gem crowns the multi-storey HER building, pairing Thai barbecue with epic CBD views.

A cocktail bar-slash garden terrace with a fitout by designer Tamsin Johnson, HER Rooftop looks like an old-world European garden party that's been plonked down in the heart of Melbourne. There are wrought-iron tables and chairs, a geometric Italian marble floor, lush green planter boxes and colour-packed wall tiles.

You can squeeze 120 guests up here, and there's plenty for them to drink. The bar's open till 1am every night, slinging a curated mix of cocktails and spirits focused on craft tequila and gins. Other garden-party-worthy offerings include the likes of a charred pineapple margarita ($22), a green apple gimlet ($22) and a handful of Euro-style aperitifs. A concise yet diverse wine list rounds out the fun.

To soak up the booze, you've got a selection of Thai plates from BKK downstairs. Expect fried chicken sandwiches with som tum salad and sweet chilli ($19), a range of laab (the vegan laab with crispy eggplant is our personal fave), pork skewers ($8) and a spicy ocean trout salad ($18). A dedicated late-night menu runs until the wee hours, too.
