Situated on the rooftop of the iconic King & Godfree building in the heart of Lygon Street’s Little Italy, Johnny’s Green Room is a Tuscan-inspired terrace with dazzling city skyline views and an enthusiastic appreciation for la dolce vita.

Conceived by award-winning designer Dion Hall, Johnny’s evokes the good times of an Italian summer with a semi-retractable roof enabling those summertime vibes to be enjoyed year-round. We have acclaimed chef Karen Martini on board as our Culinary Director, her relaxed menu of Italian-style sharing dishes beautifully complemented by Melbourne bar maestro Matt Bax’s delicious program of Italian-accented cocktails and wine and a rolling roster of the finest DJs in the land.

Named after the classic Carlton nightspot that in the 70s and 80s attracted the bohemian and the notorious like moths to a neon-lit flame, Johnny’s has been reimagined for a whole new generation of Carlton habitués.

    What venue does not have tomato sauce for fries. Staff were disinterested, rude and had attitude. They did not want to help at all despite Saturday penalty rates. I booked a low table and was given a high table. We had to ask to be moved and squish into a small circle table for four people. Our drinks order was served incorrectly - but at least they gave us the incorrect drinks for free.

    All was wonderful but the bill was wrong but they fixed it when it was pointed out to them. When this happens you always wonder if it was on purpose.

    This rooftop has been favourite for a few years now on almost a weekly basis and this was my first time back to this place since the reopening and I was quite disappointed. The renovations have made The place feels quite cramped, which is a shame as this was a great venue with spectacular views. Bar service is now very slow, took 30mins for a spicy margarita ams as for the food, the menu selection is good but very disappointing that they bring the pizzas to the table uncut, they provide a knife but when I order pizza I don’t expect to have to cut it, especially not in Carlton!!!

    Pizza was extremely oily and fell apart when picked up. Anchovy pizza was served with no anchovies. Staff stood and talked together and ignored us at the bar.

    The table was far too small for 4 people to enjoy dinner. When questioned no alternative was given. They failed to deliver a pizza to our table. The mushroom pizza was flavourless. We all added salt. Reluctant to return.

    My only complaint is they need higher glass walls to block the strong gusts of wind. It already cost them a lot as a few glasses were smashed throughout the night. Never mind the safety hazard broken glass creates too...
