In the summertime when the weather is fine we all drink at Arbory
This massive outdoor eatery and beer garden sandwiched between two Melbourne icons (the Yarra River and Flinders Street Station) stretches for 120 metres along the river bank and is officially Melbourne’s longest bar. They’ve got Espresso Martinis and Aperol Spritz on tap for quick-fire service so you can spend more time kicking back and less queueing, otherwise the juicy tang and fresh kick in the Tommy’s Watermelon Margarita is a just reward for your patience. Swap your rosé tinted glasses for the orange variety, specifically a bottle of the 2011 Pheasant Tears Katheti from the Georgian Republic.
Just when you thought your summertime tableau couldn’t get better, a cart of frozen boozy popsicles wheels by and you add a peach prosecco Bellini icypole to your tab. Bring on the heat wave, Melbourne: the Arbory has got this.
