Cookie Rooftop has been through a refurb of late which has helped reduce the absurdly long lines that were the bane of drinkers lives in the past.
Whitehart Bar is on Whitehart Lane in the centre of the Melbourne CBD behind JB and Micheals Camera. It’s a newer container bar that has a non-smoking area downstairs and a smoking area upstairs.
Think of it as a more upmarket version of the original container bar Section 8.
Section 8 in Tattersalls Lane is the original container bar. Two containers for the bar and toilets, shipping pallets for seats and 44 gallon drums for tables makes up a truly unique laneway bar.
Loop Roof is another great little laneway, rooftop bar in Melbourne. It’s on Meyers Place in the building next to Lane’s Edge.
Beneath Driver Lane is a funky little bar with a speakeasy vibe in the basement of the building next to Penny Blue on, you guessed it, Driver Lane, off Little Bourke Street opposite the old GPO.
