Good Heavens Is Set to Become Melbourne’s Largest Rooftop Bar

Barbecue and smoked-meats experts, Fancy Hank’s, and upstairs sister venue, Good Heavens, have just announced that they’re extending both venues, tripling their rooftop space. This will make Good Heavens the largest rooftop and open-air bar in Melbourne.

The team, which includes Kent Bell, Mike Patrick, Myles Munro and Daragh Kan, have taken over the adjacent property of their current location at 87 Bourke Street as well as the rooftop above.

This expansion will see Good Heavens extend to the corner of Bourke and Exhibition Streets, and a new venue, SPRINGROCK, will launch downstairs in the former Grand Trailer Park Taverna.

Good Heavens will continue with its classic cocktail focus, backed up with 40 beer taps along an 11-metre bar with spritzes also on tap. The extended space will be a no-brainer for private functions, and will feature an outdoor BBQ pit available for bookings with a private chef.

Showcasing architecture and design by Ewert Leaf (Robata, Tokyo Tina, Neptune), guests will be able to soak up the most beautiful sunset overlooking bustling Bourke Street.

It doesn’t get much better than a post-work debrief over a Piña Colada, with the city of Melbourne as your backdrop.

The new downstairs addition, SPRINGROCK, will be a bar, a pub, a meeting places and a “springboard to the ‘New Melbourne’ of 2022”. The venue will be accessible from Bourke Street as well as through the Fancy Hank’s restaurant—serving up honest Americana counter meals and a cosy, comfy space.

Together, the three venues will surely be a new Summer hub for Melbourne city slickers, a meeting place to watch the footy, eat some smoked meats or sip on a well-crafted cocktail with a view to kill.
