Madame Brussels opens up to a light-filled rooftop terrace decorated with faux grass and pastel decor in shades of pink and green. As per the famed brothel owner its named after, Madame Brussels is the embodiment of a cheeky grown up tea party where patrons are served by preppy waiters donned in white tennis attire. Boasting some lovely mid-level views of the city, the rooftop makes it a great place for weekend or afterwork drinks. To allow for Melbourne’s temperament weather, the parasols open up during sunnier afternoons.
The star of the venue here are the wide selection of cocktail jugs, complemented by an excellent selection of nibbles including cheese platters, sandwiches and some delicious sweets, all served in decent portions. High tea is also served on weekends via pre-bookings and group events are welcomed. On any given day though, ask the waiter for a photo and you may get a parasol to pose with too.
