Melbourne’s bar, dining and café culture is well represented in the Balcony bar and restaurant. With commanding South Wharf views across the golden exterior facade. The Balcony Bar and Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner or anything in-between. The Balcony Bar and Restaurant service philosophy is to provide the best of Victoria’s farm fresh produce with emphasis on sharing plates and platters. As the sun sets across South Wharf, the Balcony Bar serves up local craft beers, ciders and guests choose from an extensive wine list, hand selected from Victoria’s wine regions.

A stroll across the Seafarers Bridge will connect you to the heart of the City, Southern Cross Station, New Quay and Docklands. The South Melbourne Market is a 10-minute drive away, where you find a culinary journey of cosmopolitan dining and farm fresh produce.
