The climb to the top can be daunting for the thirsty throngs, but once you're inside, The Order of Melbourne proves worth it. Who can't forgive a steep incline in a bar situated in so large and cool an NYC-style loft with high ceilings and decorated so elegantly? The brooding magnificence of this place (think browns and burgundy-textured furnishings from the 40s) has a masquerade feel and there's also a roof top area with sky views of Melbourne. Head here for the crab and champagne BBQ (only in summer) or browse the massive wine list. Cocktails with a twist hold court - try the Ring of Fire if you dare. Look out for the new stage, which sees The Order transformed into a performance space with live entertainment too.
