Mirror Mirror Rooftop Lounge
Is Mirror Mirror rooftop bar the fairest of them all? Only time will tell.
December 15, 2023
Mirror Mirror cocktail bar has been plonked atop South Melbourne's Clarendon Hotel, boasting some pretty damn good views across the city's skyline. The makeover comes from the crew behind Goldilocks Rooftop Bar, House of Correction and Lost Boys Bar and is loosely inspired by the classic tale of Snow White.
Signature cocktails are named after some of the story's characters, with the Evil Witch Spritz sounding devilishly good. It comes with crème de violette, Campari, lemon juice, Four Pillars gin and a few good splashes of prosecco. A tidy list of mostly Aussie wines is also available for those not wanting to spend a whole day in the sun drinking cocktails.
Unlike the drinks at this new rooftop cocktail bar, the food menu is not themed. Expect Asian-fusion eats that span small plates like sesame prawn toast, veggie dumplings and satay skewers, as well as larger dishes like the wagyu steak and a pan-grilled barramundi covered in a Thai-style chilli dressing.
Mirror Mirror is definitely slanted towards the luxury end of Melbourne's rooftop bar scene, with beer and parmas nowhere to be seen on the menu. But if that's the vibe you're after, you can always check out nearby haunts like The Montague, Golden Gate Hotel and Westside Aleworks after a few spritzes up at Mirror Mirror.
