Tuscan Bar is a little hidden, perched above Bourke Street. It’s a luxurious and decadent bar, one that’s thankfully never over-the-top about it. It’s a large space full of chandeliers, full of intimate booths and banquettes, and boasting an impressive cocktail list.

Apart from that, Tuscan Bar boasts a menu full of stuzzichini (Italian tapas), feeding co-workers, groups of friends, and birthday-goers. Upstairs though, is the piece de resistance: the rooftop bar. It’s a nigh perfect pick for post-work drinks in the sunshine, for a location at which to kick a night off, as well as out-of-the-office corporate events.

As far as function venues go, Tuscan Bar - once a ballroom - has a few options. The two rooms (The Grande Room and Cocktail Lounge) are able to be used as private function venues, as is the rooftop bar. Over the two floors, Tuscan Bar is able to accommodate up to 400 guests. Tuscan Bar’s well-versed in throwing birthday parties, after parties, engagement parties, and even the odd wedding.

Tuscan Bar is found upstairs on Bourke Street, near the corner of Exhibition. Parliament is the nearest train station, and there are plenty of trams around.
