Time Out Melbourne

The Emerson is an all-singing, all-dancing restaurant, club and bar with a floor of shadowy booths, a rooftop replete with cushion-lined deck for howling at the moon and a lower level pushing a solid agenda of beats to fuel the dance floor. 

This isn't your local boozer. The Emerson has been custom designed for those looking to get a little glamorous and even features lifts which take up to private booths for staring out over the dance floor. If that's a little intense, head upstairs to the roof where there are daybeds, sun and views across the city.
