It is always hard to answer the question

“what is your favourite Melbourne pub or bar”


As a frequent traveller to Melbourne I have not tried every bar, pub and club, even though we think we have them all in our app Best Melbourne Pubs and Bars. So perhaps my favourite will change when I get back to Melbourne to fill in the gaps of bars I have visited.



“Perhaps my favourite bar is the Red Hummingbird”

Red Hummingbird in Russell Street, Melbourne

One of Melbourne's best bars

The Red Humingbird, located at 246 Russell Street, Melbourne, is a gorgeous cocktail style bar on the first floor with a really nice rooftop bar above. Rooftop bars are a very Melbourne thing and there is nothing nicer on a warm summers evening, than sitting on the rooftops gazing out over the city with a nice cold beer.

The Red Hummingbird can be hard to find though, as the entry is from a single door fronting the street. The cute red birdcage above the door gives it away, but then people tend not to look up, and in Melbourne that is a pity as the street facade and skyline is pretty nice. So once you have located the door on Russell Street climb the stairs to the first floor to be met by a sumptuous lounge bar.

Finding the Red Hummingbird is easy with the Best Melbourne Pubs and Bars app on iPhone. Google maps will guide your there and give you directions too.

Travelling and don’t have a data connection?

Best Melbourne Pubs and Bars contains off-line maps so you can still find all those wonderful pubs and bars.
