Meet Melbourne's new rooftop bar

Melbourne is about to get a new rooftop bar towering over Flinders Street.

Fleet promises sweeping views of the Yarra River and beyond when it opens mid-April.

Flinders Street Station, the river, Southbank and beyond will be visible from the 90-person venue, which sits above Vibe Hotel Melbourne and will have a drinks list compiled by cocktail guru Grant Collins.

Negronis, spritzes, and martinis will be front and centre along with drinks like the Hurricane, made from gold rum, navy rum, pineapple, orange, lime, and passionfruit. Or maybe a Tequilla Manhattan with six-month barrel aged reposado tequila, sweet vermouth, orange bitters, angostura bitters and maraschino.

The drinks will pair with chef Asish Kumar’s bar snack menu with a Victorian accent.

Fleet will open to the public in April 2024 from Tuesday to Saturday, 3pm until late, and for lunch on Fridays and Saturdays from noon.

The hotel is at the intersection of Melbourne’s Flinders and Queen streets and notable for its original 1873 facade at street level.
