This is a really cool outdoor bar literally on the Yarra River. It is attached to one of the foot bridges that links Southbank to the City. Ideal on a good day or night. They have heaters during winter.

Unique place for a drink and to relax. The cafe is situated at the foot of one of the supports for the Evan Walker Bridge.

Bar under the bridge on the Yarra. Watch the boats go by :) nothing better on a sunny day. Can be crowded though

Unique floating bar and restaurant. Access is via a single stairwell from the pedestrian bridge connecting Southbank to Flinders Street

Personal favourite - located nowhere in the middle of Yarra river and under a bridge. And yes the view of the city from this place will have you in awe. During sunset you'll have to beat the crowd to get in the pub as the Melbourne skyline just looks magnificent from this place.

Bar
“One of the nicest bars in Melbourne along the Yarra River. Sit back and take in the view as you sip on a cocktail. During the summer months Arbory opens up "Arbory Afloat", a floating extension of the bar which takes you right on to the water of the Yarra River.”
