Melbourne’s Newest Rooftop Bar

Melbourne loves a rooftop bar, and this September, we’re getting another one in Hawthorn!

Named nineteenforty, the bar pays homage to the heritage-listed venue’s opening back on October 11, 1940.  Perched above Rivoli Cinemas, expect a garden inspired fit-out with festoon lighting, succulent potted plants and timber cladding. Offering panoramic views of Camberwell & Hawthorn, the venue is perfect for sipping champagne in summer, or curling up under umbrellas and heaters in the winter.

Enjoy a  selection of bar food and a bespoke drinks menu with a specially curated list of drinks designed to amplify the setting or for the real gin enthusiasts, a premium G&T experience matches Star of Bombay with tonic water and a selection of botanicals.

Rivoli Site Manager James Zwack looks forward to introducing a cocktail menu to compliment the Rivoli cinema experience. “We’ve always been enamored by the history of the cinema. The rooftop bar seems like the perfect way to invite guests to enjoy the space as much as we do.”

This will be the place to be this summer!
