A little difficult to find but well worth seeking out...we loved the quirky décor up the stairs and the open air rooftop bar. We only had drinks, not food, and it was a little pricey but you are in the business district so not surprising....More

$20 lunch deal. Meal with glass of rather good house wine. I chose the creamy mushroom and pea pasta dish and was not disappointed. Served with fresh crusty bread and prompt friendly service. Nice atmosphere and really good value.

Our swimming club held its presentation night in the function room on level 1 last night. We had about 40 people. The room was set up with 2 long dining tables, screen, projector and microphone. Waking up Hardware Lane, I probably would avoid Campari House...More

This is the perfect place to go if you are looking for a few casual drinks, they have lots to offer and the staff were more than willing to help.

Downstairs is a bright restaurant, and the colourful stairwell leads you to a dark mid floor bar and onto the nice roof top bar (with heaters). A great experience with friendly staff. Drinks were reasonably priced and the bar snack food was good value (we...More

the roof top bar is a great spot for drinks, unfortunately the view of the car park is a little disappointing but a nice open air spot in the heart of the city. pizza on the snack menu was very good.

Central Business District
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.
