Time Out says

Melbourne's largest outdoor floating bar and restaurant is returning to the Yarra River

Brought to us by the team at Arbory Bar and Eatery, Arbory Afloat will return to the Yarra River on October 22. The 69-metre floating bar and restaurant, which features two bars and an extensive upper deck pool club, will be decked out in the style of the picturesque Turquoise Coast in Turkey. Think hues of honey, pistachio and olive, gorgeous interiors with Aegean influences, olive trees, tasselled umbrellas, thatched roofing and coloured tiles.

Allow yourself to be transported to this beautiful Mediterranean paradise while basking in the sunshine and enjoying a menu inspired by classic and contemporary Turkish dishes. The drinks list will showcase a host of local and international producers, and you'll be able to choose from eight house-made and mixed cocktails available on tap.

Daybeds are available for groups of four to six, and cabanas will be available for groups of up to 16. Arbory Afloat will open on October 22 from 11.30am to 1am daily. Bookings are strongly recommended and must be made online through the Arbory Afloat website.
