More about Red Hummingbird Rooftop Bar, Melbourne CBD

When you think of Melbourne you think of buzzing culture and a melting pot for international cuisine. You also think of an easy-going approach to life. The Red Hummingbird – one of the first rooftop bars in the very heart of the city – captures all of this perfectly. It’s a fantastic space to relax but the setting does not lack luxury. There is timber and ambience and plenty of patio heaters, combined with loads of seating and a damn fine view of Melbourne’s CBD. The bar itself is stylish and manned by staff who really know their stuff when it comes to cocktails. The Red Hummingbird is simply a winner.

But, the menu, the menu, there’s still the menu. That’s right, The Red Hummingbird doesn’t stop at a few cool places to sit, it goes way further with a fine little tapas menu. Up for grabs there is mini fish and chips, chilli mussels or spicy karaage chicken (it’s spicy and Japanese). There are also Vietnamese rolls or some humble wedges but, whatever you go for, there are international flavours to keep you guessing. See what all our fuss is about and reserve a table at The Red Hummingbird now.
