Head up the wraparound timber stairs at the back of Melbourne Supper Club and you’ll find a little portal to Paris

Siglo is a master multitasker that is very eager to please. Come for an afternoon Aperol Spritz in the sun or a flashy celebration with caviar, cigars and Champagne – either way you’re well looked after here.  

Getting a seat with a view is like an Olympic event, so we suggest making a pitstop post midnight when the after work crowd have long gone, theatre goers have heeded the final call and it's just you and the night owls looking out over Spring Street’s canopy. Park yourself in one of the many Parisian wicker chairs and order a Grand Gunner, a punchy nip with two kinds of rum, fig and cinnamon bitters, nutmeg syrup and frosty egg white.

2017’s changes to the Tobacco Act have meant Siglo is now classified as a drinking only venue. You’ll still be able to enjoy refined bar snacks at your table, but you’ll need to venture to the indoor bar to devour Siglo’s signature party pies. It’s no big deal. Start with snacks at your table – both the marinated grilled eggplant and Crust Armour salmon rillettes feel like tiny care packages from old gay Paree – and then when you're ready for the main event, perch on a stool inside for a chevap sausage roll or a flaky spanakopita at the bar.
