the Waterside Hotel
In the afternoon and in the evening for many years, Melburnians have filtered onto The Deck at The Waterside to watch Melbourne come to life. It’s an iconic Melbourne view, looking down over Flinders Street and along the Yarra, or west to the city skyline. On a Saturday afternoon, it’s synonymous with delicious bar meals and beers with the football on the big screen. On a Saturday evening, it comes to life with music and champagne and cocktails, late into the night. Open Thursday through Sunday, The Deck has long been a place to congregate with friends for after work drinks, weekend lunches, and Saturday night dance sessions.
