Lui Bar by Vue de Monde is a mirror of class, luxury and elegance, owned by the famous Shannon Bennett. Located at level 55 Rialto tower with the stunning view of the city and was named after Luigi Grollo. Lui Bar decorated with dark interiors screams class, dim romantic lighting, comfortable elegant sofas and several bar seats. They serve various cocktails, mocktails by request and classy bar food.
After finally being given the green light to go up, the elevator shoots you up into the sky so quickly that you don’t quite realise how high up you’ve gone. That is until you set foot on level 55 and get a glimpse out the windows, able to see a twinkling ocean of Port Phillip Bay-shaped lights as if you had the window seat on a Qantas flight. Personally greeted on arrival, you’re escorted to your seats. The intimate bar, which sports, somehow, a classy Australiana feel, is made up of comfortable lounges for groups, intimate window-side tables for couples and bar seating around the island bar for those that just like to watch the flurry of cocktail-making.
The menu is designed creatively and the whole menu is a pop up book with an explanation of their cocktails. It is extremely cute yet classy. Expect super fancy. A serious dress code applies. There aren’t a pair of shorts in sight, but there is a diverse clientele; from old to young, those dripping in wealth to those who’ve sold their right kidney for that whiskey. Drinks are top shelf, as you’d expect. And of course, not forgetting the snacks! A trio of mini burgers: David Blackmore Wagyu Beef, barramundi and a seasonal veggie one. All spot on and will fill your snacky bellies enough to not verge on the ‘I’m full’ scale, but enough to keep you wanting for more. And this is just one of the many. All of them equally divine.
So long story short, why are you still sitting here reading this? Why aren’t you on your way to this classy place right now? Even if you just have one drink, The Lui Bar is a Melbourne must.
