November 29, 2022
Following a hugely successful year since opening in November 2021, Melbourne CBD’s highest rooftop bar Fable Melbourne welcomes the summer season with new menus, an all-new bottomless rooftop brunch, and a NYE event boasting some of the best views in the city to take in the City of Melbourne’s extra impressive fireworks display.
On Saturdays from
, the cocktail-style
Fable Rooftop Brunch
offers bottomless Grey Goose Essences spritzes and a wide range of chef made canapés for 2 hours from 1-3pm. Think Beetroot stracciatella and citrus cured Yellowtail Kingfish with truffle aioli, alongside DJs and roving live entertainment. The entertainment line up over summer includes Andy Murphy, Kelvin Dana, Kitty Kat, Jesus, Minx, Jorj Pats, BOS•HOUSEN, Gaz Kempster (percussion), Tavares Brothers (vocals), Emerson Alexander (vocals), Jarrad Lees (sax) and more.

), the new summer menus are driven by fresh produce and seasonality with an emphasis on sustainability.
Fable’s summer menus are entirely Gluten Free, Vegan friendly, and include an array of new dishes perfect for warmer weather.
“Our new summer menu is hyper seasonal and light, with more raw items, such as our beautiful XL King prawns from South Australia mixed raw with cucumber, onion, tomato and peppers to mimic the flavours of a greek salad, cooked gently with lime juice and finished with a punchy oil made from the heads of the prawns. We also have some more playful dishes that transfer to our late night menu, such as crisp cauliflower nuggets with green garlic and daikon, which is both gluten-free and vegan,” says Fable Melbourne Executive Chef Alex Xinis.
Other summer menu highlights include Beetroot carpaccio with candied cashew, tarragon and sour cherry with stracciatella (or cashew cream as a vegan option); Pea ‘quinotto’ (quinoa risotto) with feta, aleppo and flash fried snow peas (vegan); Fable’s own Potato hash with spring onion and dijonnaise (vegan); and a new twist on their Burrata, now with marinated zucchini, red pepper and kalamata olives. Fable’s food and drinks menus will always be entirely Gluten Free.
The new summer food menu is complemented by a range of masterful cocktails inspired by European mythology and moments in history, including a full page of alcohol-free options, several pages featuring twists on classic martinis, and an extensive list of spirits, beers and wines.
Fable’s cocktail menu is continually evolving, with current highlights including
, featuring Melbourne’s own highly awarded Starward Two Folds whiskey infused with cocoa husks, Lillet Blanc and Pierre Ferrand dry curacao;
, a vegan friendly version of the classic milk punch; and colourful, fizzy number
, with Pisco, Chinola passion fruit liqueur, fino sherry, vanilla citrate and prosecco.
The cocktail menu is entirely dairy and egg free: vegan apart from the use of honey in select menu items.
“Over the last six months or so, we have noticed patrons are more and more open to experimental cocktails with ingredients like mezcal and Pisco, which has been really positive for us,” says venue manager and lead mixologist Alessandro Nardini.
“This summer we are introducing more alcohol-free cocktails due to the continued demand, as well as some new tequila cocktails and a smoked white port martini. In January we will begin to offer tasting flights in partnership with different spirit brands, including a new range of raicillas matched with cheeses,” says Alessandro. Raicilla is a Mexican agave spirit that is becoming increasingly popular worldwide.
