Melbourne Bar #4: Watermark Bar


Watermark Bar, Melbourne Bars

The Watermark Bar is a gorgeous waterfront facility. It is designed to accommodate functions both indoors and out. Overlooking Victoria Harbour, it is close to Telstra Dome and basically under the new groovy colourful National Australia Bank building.

Contemporary décor, warm ambiance, alfresco style menu options, and a variety of eating areas (lounge, bar, pavilion, or mezzanine) make this a sophisticated watering hole.

Melbourne Bar #5: Blue Diamond Club


Blue Diamond Club, Melbourne Bars

The Blue Diamond Club offers a club-like membership to discreet and discerning clientele. Non-members are also welcome. However, they will not have all the privileges that members have. Sundays showcase a wide array of live music—soul, jazz, Latin, blues, and funk. Both local and imported or international wines and beers along with a wide selection of French and Spanish dishes make the menu here very appealing to almost any palate.

Since the Blue Diamond is perched 15 stories in the air atop the Melbourne skyline, you have got the added advantage of views over the city. It is a great place to relax on the Friday afternoon. And when the weather is great, the balcony, the view and the art deco interior make this a classy choice.

Whether it is an old-world pub you’re after or a trendy nightlife hotspot, Melbourne has what you’re looking for.

You could hit a different spot every day of your visit and still never see them all.

Whatever your style the eclectic city of Melbourne will offer you the best in nighttime entertainment anywhere in Australia.
