Lording it over the rest of the city, drink in hand, is truly one of life’s great pleasures. There’s just something about the taste of a white wine, fresh mojito or a cold beer at high altitude… we can’t explain it, but we love it.
Lucky for us, we can escape to the echelons of summer delight where a cool breeze and a chilled beverage provide the ultimate refreshment high above the steamy streets below with Geelong’s hottest new venue Murphys, which is coming to life for the first time over summer with their Rooftop Bar and the launch of its brand-new third-level Sky Garden.
Built for long summer days and warm summer nights, Murphys Rooftop boasts a stunning view over the bay and is the perfect place to watch the ships roll in and world go by… especially with this new third-level sky garden, which has been designed specifically for summer – from the fit-out and views to the cocktail list and menu items.
“From the get-go we designed the Rooftop and Sky Garden with summer in mind,” says co-owner Shaun Aspinall. “You’ve got views of the bay, you’re tucked away from the city and you’re high up in Geelong West – add ice cold beer, crispy wines, a fresh cocktail list and a distinct summer vibe menu – and you’ve got the perfect place to spend a summers day.
“Not to mention, our third-level Sky Garden that has a panoramic 270-degree view of Geelong, is soon to be complete with a bar and open to the public.”
What’s even better is that the guys have also launched Brunch on the rooftop every Sunday from 10:30am this summer! It’s not your typical Bottomless Brunch though (like they’ve been doing for Spring) as there’s no fixed priced tickets or finger food. It’s a la carte with everything from eggs benedict to house made muesli, or you can just simply enjoy a latte and Geelong’s best Rooftop views.
If you think drinks with a view is what Instagram was made for, or if you’re down for a delicious brunch with the crew every Sunday, than these guys have you well and truly covered for the entirety of summer.
So rise above the burning concrete and stuffy interiors this summer and tone those thighs with some good old-fashioned stair climbing, Murphy’s is your go-to destination this summer.
Located at 30 Aberdeen Street, Geelong West, Murphys is open 7 days a week, with weekday specials and live music and live sport every weekend.
