It might be coming a little late in Melbourne's outdoor drinking season, but the city's CBD is getting a luxe new rooftop bar in April 2024. Fleet, sitting on top of Vibe Hotel Melbourne, will boast views right over Flinders Street Station and the Yarra River — that can be enjoyed no matter the weather thanks to the retractable roof and smattering of indoor seating.

Interior architecture firm Paul Kelly Design (BLACK Bar & Grill and Crown Casino) has designed the light-filled space, incorporating natural and beige hues.

The drinks lineup comes courtesy of food and beverage consultant Grant Collins, who is filling the menu with nautical-themed cocktails (the bar is named Fleet, after all), plus local and international wines and beers.

For food, guests can expect a snacking affair, with Chef Asish Kumar running the kitchen. Little has been announced about the cuisine or kinds of dishes available so far, but it will be a celebration of Victorian producers.

For now, it seems like the views and cocktails will be the stars of the show at the new Melbourne rooftop bar Fleet.

Fleet is set to open in April 2024 at level 22, 1 Queen Street, Melbourne (on the corner of Queen and Flinders streets) — operating from 3pm–late Tuesday–Thursday and 12pm–late Friday–Saturday. For more details, visit the venue's Instagram page.
