Loop Has Opened a Second Greenery-Filled Rooftop Bar in the CBD

Multi-storey Meyers Place venue Loop has already taken the concept of a vertical garden to soaring new heights, with a wall of greenery that extends from its street level alcoves right up to third storey rooftop terrace, Loop Roof. It's packed with over 100 species of plants. Now, Director and Co-Founder Adam Bunny has gone one step further, adding a whole new lush, green rooftop, up on Level 4.

Launching to the public last month, Loop Top is the building's new crowning glory, with space for an extra 100 punters, on top of the existing 100-person capacity of Loop Roof below. The two have combined to create a split-level, sky-high oasis, boasting even more of those panoramic views across the city.

Jazzing up Loop Top, you'll find a vast array of plant life, designed to evoke the feeling of an urban jungle and complement the existing vertical garden. A couple of majestic tree aloes join the two already presiding over Level 3, along with a riot of prickly pear, bottle trees, bougainvillea, Hollywood mint and Madagascar dragons. It's all accompanied by mammoth blue and yellow umbrellas, and more decorative pops of colour to match the set-up below.

Fittingly, the new drinks lineup has a botanical focus, headlined by a healthy array of spritzes, including the Life's A Salty Peach – a fusion of Mathilde pêche liqueur, salted caramel Stolichnaya and peach bitters. Elsewhere, you'll find highballs and house creations — such as the Patient Summerthyme with gin, vermouth, lemon and thyme — plus a diverse spread of beers and largely local wines.

And to match, a bar menu runs from buffalo chicken bites to vegan mushroom 'wings' and burgers, like the signature beef Big Loop.

Find Loop Top at Level 4, 23 Meyers Place, Melbourne. It's open Monday–Thursday 3pm–midnight and Friday–Sunday midday–1am.
