The Waterslide Bar is a fusion of old and modern, creating the pleasant impression of being somewhere familiar, yet new. It’s another of Melbourne’s typical best secret-bars; rather, it’s out there for everyone to enjoy and wanting to be enjoyed; bringing some sophisticated and delicious fun to the south side of the river. The Waterslide team, with its many years of experience has compiled unique beverage lists of the finest Whiskeys, Gins, Vodkas, Rums, Ciders, Cocktails and Craft beers.

With the stunning million-dollar views of the Yarra River and of the city skyline, Waterslide is the ideal venue for corporate functions, product launches, birthday parties, anniversaries, EOFY functions and of course Christmas parties. Our spaces offer great flexibility with spaces ideal for groups between 10 and 20. Contact us if you have 10 or more guests.

Finger food/tapas style with an intent to be flavourful without being filling. Soft and delicate well cooked. Drinks made you feel you were having a treat and the setting had the same cosmopolitan feel of the Gin Palace. Yarra view great, perfect if going to theatres.

Had a great table overlooking the river, service was excellent. The food menu was a little disappointing due to choice but what we did have was very good.
