who’s talking about us?
history
Waterslide Bar at Southbank is a fusion of old and modern, creating the pleasant impression of being somewhere familiar, yet new. The dark timber and yellow hues paired with modern décor creates a stylish atmosphere that blends well into the historic surrounds of Southgate Melbourne. The Waterslide bar has many attractions, the most prominent being a sweeping view of the Melbourne city skyline.

Typical to Melbourne bars you’ll find hidden alcoves, booths and high table bars so all sorts can lounge, hide, or be different and enjoy the glittering view. Waterslide is a fun, much-awaited signature cocktail bar that will have 9-5ers and good timers alike enjoying themselves for after work drinks, functions or large group get togethers on the banks of the Yarra River. It’s another of Melbourne’s typical best kept 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.

Primely positioned in the heart of Melbourne's arts precinct and within walking distance to the Arts Centre, Hamer Hall, Melbourne Recital Centre and Malthouse Theatre. Whether you are attending a performance of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia, Australian Ballet or one of the many live theatre shows or exhibitions, Waterslide Bar is Melbourne's best pre-theatre, dining and drinking venue.
