Five of the Best Bars in South Yarra


With a host of trendy bars, South Yarra is the perfect place to let a late night get even later. Whether you’re looking for somewhere ambient to enjoy a quiet nightcap, or a place with a little more energy, South Yarra has got you covered! Below, we’ve served up five of our favourites…

The Botanical (169 Domain Road)

When you’re after a sophisticated drinking establishment in which to wet your beak, the Botanical has to be on your South Yarra shortlist. The long ‘Pietra Grigio’ bar offers an extensive list of fabulous wines and quality beers and if you’re after a cocktail, well you’re only limited by your imagination.
Drink: Apple & Mint Martini

Emerson Rooftop Bar (143/145 Commercial Rd)

The Emerson Rooftop Bar does an interesting double act. That is, it is both synonymous with South Yarra’s sophistication, and yet is compatible with the more urban Melbourne lifestyle. The views of the CBD are stunning, plus its retractable roof means you can cosy up in winter and enjoy warm breezy twilights in summer.
Drink: Veuve Clicquot

Two Wrongs (637 Chapel St)

The new kid on the block is fast becoming a South Yarra favourite due to its gourmet menu and endearing dive-bar qualities, which its owner affectionately describes as “fine diving”.
Drink: Rhymed with Orange (Aperol, Campari and Amaro Montenegri)

Spoonbill: The Olsen (637-641 Chapel St)

You’ll be immersed in John Olsen’s love of Australian art and culture from the moment you enter Spoonbill. What’s more, you’ll be more than inspired by its dim, ambient lighting and soft, sprawling sofas to enjoy a tipple or two.
Drink: Aperol Spritz
