A true Melbournian will testify to loving a rooftop bar so when we heard news of Rivoli Cinemas (in Hawthorn) bringing one to the party, we had to let you know.
Nineteen Forty Bar sits atop of Rivoli Cinemas and pays tribute to a golden age dating back to October 11, 1940 where the heritage-listed venue opened it’s gorgeous doors to a screening of ‘French Without Tears’.
With a garden inspired with out this rooftop bar is going to be the envy of any art-deco lover with it’s gorgeous architecture and panoramic views of the suburbs of Camberwell and Hawthorn.
The venue itself is well suited for cocktails in summer or a cozy red wine under heaters in winter. Succulent potted plants and timber cladding make this space feel warm, fresh and tranquil.
Celebrating old-world cocktails, this menu amplifies that golden age feeling with a smart, trendy and well thought out drink list designed to suit all tastes.
For those wanting to try a new cocktail recommend the Athena, a delicious blend of apricot, cloudy apple and lime (with a cheeky shot of alcohol too!).
Rivoli Cinemas is located at 200 Camberwell Rd, Hawthorn East
