After the New Years party at Transit Rooftop Bar we decided to visit some of Melbournes other rooftop bars. The wheather this day was really warm with temperatures around 40 degrees.
Down by the beach in St Kilda, Melbourne you’ll find this nice rooftop bar. With a cozy lounge feeling, cool beach views and nice party atmosphere this is a perfect rooftop bar in Melbourne if you like to chill out in the sun :).
Transit Rooftop Bar (day time):
We just love this place. Nice 360 degree views over Melbourne, friendly and good staff, delicous cocktails and a great atmosphere.
Rooftop bar (Rooftop Cinema):
Unfortenatley we missed the sold out cinema (The Goonies), but we had some drinks in the bar instead. Cinema at a rooftop bar has become very populare in Melbourne recent years. And we can understand why :).
Here we took an Espresso Martini and some beers. We also had a little chit chat with the bar stuff, and they were very polite and nice. A good place in the same area as Rooftop Bar (Rooftop Cinema) – so the view were pretty much the same among Melbournes scyscrapers in the city center.
Altogether we had a really good experience among Melbournes rooftop bars. Next stop Sydney!
Hi everybody! My name is Hans Ebenman and I’m one of the founders of The Rooftop Guide. Right now I’m on a rooftop bar trip to Melbourne – Sydney – Singapore. The first blogpost will be about Melbourne and the New Years party we had there.
We had been invited by Floriane and Dave from Transit Rooftop Bar to attend their New Years party in Melbourne. The party included entrance, drinks and canapes the whole night with a fantastic party atmosphere. We begun with a nice Espresso Martini on the roof terrace before the party got started.
Around 11:30 PM we corked up some bootles of Champagne to get ready for the begining of the new year. We had some really nice cocktails, wine and Champagne. Regarding the food the staff served some delicious canapes – all with a very good taste.
Melbourne is one of the first big cities in the world to celebrate New Years. And there’s always a lot of breathtaking fireworks for all the spectaters. This time the fireworks costed more than 10 million Australian dollars. So you can imagen that the expectations where quite high :). From the Transit Rooftop Bar you get one of Melbournes best views and this is the best spot to see all the fireworks and scyscrapers that surrounds the city.
We had an amazing evening at Transit Rooftop Bar. The service, party feeling, views and drinks was of highest quality through out the whole night. If you want an complete New Years party in Australia, this is a perfect spot to visit.

This week it’s time for Rasim Reiz to write about his trip to Dubai where he visited a couple of really nice and luxurious rooftop bars. Rasim is 27 years old and lives in the Swedish capital Stockholm. He loves football (soccer) and likes to live ”the good life”. Here is Rasims own words from his experience.
Me and my girlfriend Malin was for 11 days on vaction, my second time in Dubai, and this time i was more blown away then before.
The rooftop bar was absolutely amazing. The view over the high rises was powerful. We tested the sangria here that we have heard is really good, and it lived up to it, so to speak. Top sangria in a bar that had everything. If you want to sit good, with a great view, my recommendation is to come early, it gets packed quite fast during the weekends.
Pure Sky Lounge at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort:
In the marina you’ll find Hilton’s pride. The rooftop bar with views over the palm and ”The Walk” which is located below is amazing and classy.
We arrived early and took a few drinks that were world class, my favorite gin and tonic was a high rate in this bar. Great music aswell. But the view is stunning. Get here for the sunset and you will have some good instagram photos.

This week it´s time for the Turkish Airlines executive Tolga Duran to write about his trip to Kuala Lumpur and some rooftop bars he visited there. Tolga is a Turkish and Swedish guy in the mid 30s who has been to more places in the world then most people will manage to do in a whole life time. Tolga is a true professional when it comes to everything he does.
Heli Lounge Bar:
A Helicopter pad used as an outdoor bar with a 360 degree view over KL. Great location, a bit of a rundown entrance but defenitely worth a visit for its concept. Just don’t get too close to the edge if you’ve had too many Hendricks ;).
Great spot for a pool party! Live Dj with an open air pool and 2 floors to hang out at. Best time to visit would be during weekends, younger crowd 20-30… The View of the Twin towers behind the Dj gives it a scenic view.
Finally I also visited one of Kuala Lumpurs best sky bars at the Atmosphere 360 restaurant in the Turning Telekom Tower. Similar view from other rooftop bars only this is inside. Buffe style dinner with live music, not the best restaurant in town but worth the experience.

Here you have Kristers own words and pictures in a short – yet very nice – experience of Sky Bar at Hotel Tivoli Lisboa:
Two hectic days in this South European pearl with lots of work and fun but the highlight was when we started off one of the nights at Sky Bar at Hotel Tivoli Lisboa, Av. da Liberdade 185. The roof terracce offered stunning view over this city by the Atlantic Ocean.
The Sky Bar is a popular spot among rooftop bars in Lisbon and if you fancing a romantic view with something good in the glas and with someone that you care about – this is the place to be. Regarding clothes and mood, I would go with smart casual, then you will blend in. Last thing; Start the night here with som drinks and nice hangout!
During daytime, the Sky Bar was closed (seasonal). But you could still go up on the terrace and enjoy the sun rise. Here are som pics of that.
