The Pool Deck

701 Swanston Street, Carlton VIC 3053, Australia
Add to Compare
The Rooftop Deck is the newest addition to Rydges on Swanston, a unique and hidden destination perched high above Melbourne below. It's a space that oozes modern cool and a definite swagger – how can you not, when there's a private pool right there for the enjoying? 

The Pool Deck works as both a private function space, or a pre-function venue for a larger and more lavish occasion. The eponymous deck is undercover and heated, making the space perfect throughout Melbourne's tumultuous seasons. That said, there's nothing quite like sitting by the pool with a cocktail in the height of summer.
