We went here for after work drinks. The staff were so friendly. The view was just breath taking and the cocktails were really nice. Looking forward to going back and trying some food there.

We visited The Lui Bar after lunch at Bistro Vue for some after lunch drinks. We sat by the window overlooking the city and coast line and it was just beautiful. The drinks are exceptional and for that you do pay a price.

The Lui Bar blew us away, with it's unmatched city views and unique versions of classic cocktails. A must see location in Melbourne CBD.

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
