Loved the place, pricey though, what a shame we happened to be there at the same time as the sunday trivia when you're not up for that. Pizza was okay, mulled wine of no quality

Thanks for the feedback Justine, we are working on improving our mulled wine recipe. We hope to see you again soon.

Perfect spot to have a couple of drinks with friends on a Friday or Saturday night ! The place is often packed, but remains charming ! Many stairs to reach the rooftop, but definitely worth it.

Summer or winter this is a great rooftop bar to go too. A quality array of spirits, wines and beers with good bar food. Brilliant on lovely warm day

It's hard for a bar In Melbourne to stand out given the number of options. But Campari House is certainly worth a go if you are in town. Far enough up that it is a genuine rooftop with views. And in Hardware Lane so plenty...More

Attended the rooftop for a work function and had an amazing experience. Food was delicious and I was highly impressed with their ‘base’ spirits! The staff were attentive but a special mention to Charlie and Blair who was absolutely fantastic - service A++++

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Though it may sound like the Melbourne consulate for Italy’s much-loved bitter red aperitif, Campari House is actually the latest incarnation of an old-school Italian bistro that opened its Hardware Lane doors in 1968. The once-famous Campari Bistro has been brilliantly rejuvenated into a fantastic five level hospitality experience reflecting Melbourne’s diverse restaurant and bar culture. Consisting of a ground floor restaurant, level 1 guest room, level 2 Lounge, a fully covered Rooftop Bar and secondary Rooftop The Soda Bar. Seamlessly merging refined and rustic, vintage and contemporary, Campari House has the feel of an instant classic. Stylish without being sleek, the venue is warm and inviting, comfortable yet lively. The ground floor 45 seater Restaurant offers a fresh and innovative modern Italian menu open for lunch and dinner. The Level 1 versatile, light filled function space is perfect for your next corporate or private event. The Campari House signature stained glass private booths located in the Lounge are also available for hire and ideal for intimate meetings or exclusive group bookings in the evenings. Finally wander up to either of the greatly anticipated rooftop bars for some of Melbourne’s best pizza. The seasonal menu showcases modern Italian inspired cuisine that utilises both locally sourced & sustainable ingredients we hope to reflect sensibility with contemporary flair while staying true to their traditional roots. Whether you are looking for quick morning coffee, unforgettable dining experience or a quiet drink on the roof top under Melbourne’s striking star lit sky, Campari House is sure to impress.
