A glorious rooftop setting for some discerning bottles of wine.
April 01, 2023
Siglo is an old favourite amongst many a Melbourne city worker. It was once somewhat of a hidden gem, located up a narrow set of stairs on Spring Street — but the word is well and truly out these days. The rooftop bar gets packed with business folk after work on weekdays, with late-night drinkers also flocking here until close at 3am.
Up here, it is all very European, from the old school Parisian-style chairs and tables topped with white linen to the food and drinks menu. During hot afternoons, the rooftop is full of spritz drinkers, and as the sun sets over Parliament House, the vermouth sipping, red wine swirling Melburnians take over — adding some small plates of charcuterie and olives to their luxe bar experience.
High quality cigars are also on the menu at Siglo. Don't be surprised to see some smokers puffing Cohiba, Partagas, Upmann and Punch varieties, all the while nursing a peaty single malt or an XO Cognac. It is a boojie spot, but it doesn't have to be.
You can easily pop up to this fab Melbourne rooftop for a few cheeky spritzes and then head out to other city spots for more drinking, dining and theatre watching. Nonetheless, a smart casual dress code is enforced at Siglo, so be sure to leave the thongs and bin tang singlets at home.
