Just In: QT Melbourne's Rooftop Bar Is Relaunching in October with a New Look and Mediterranean Menu
Expect new drinks, new dishes and a view that never gets old at Melbourne's Rooftop at QT after a mid-spring revamp.
September 26, 2023
Rooftop at QT will re-emerge from its chrysalis in mid-October. With it will come new drinks, a new vibe and a Mediterranean menu with a fresh coat of inspiration — and the same skyline vistas.
First off, the drinks. Chris Stock, the man who helped Dandelyan in London strut to the number one spot on the World's 50 Best Bars list back in 2018, is overseeing the beverage program. He's mixing classics with a twist that promises to be more than your average G&T.
On the food front, Nic Wood has returned to the QT chain after a stint in LA to take the helm of Executive Chef. Expect a Mediterranean menu encompassing everything from snacky delights to grand sharing platters that will, for better or worse, end up in a lot of your mates' Instagram stories.
For those keen on ambience and vibe, designer Nic Graham is handling the interior facelift of the joint. He's serving up private booths, an intimate lounge, an outdoor bar, high banquet seating, a brand new private dining room and tabletops with custom tiling.
"It's an exciting time for QT Melbourne as we embark on the first phase of our culinary evolution with the appointment of Nic Wood," says QT Melbourne's General Manager Kristen Foat.
"We look forward to welcoming back our loyal Melbourne food and beverage aficionados, along with visitors in need of Melbourne's most extraordinary views, service, hospitality and nightlife experience."
Rooftop at QT will reopen in mid-October 2023 at QT Melbourne, 133 Russell Street, Melbourne — we'll update you with an exact date when one is announced.
