Rain, hail or shine, Naked in the Sky is one of Melbourne’s favourite outdoor restaurants.
On weekend evenings, a long line of beautiful people snakes out the door of street level restaurant Naked for Satan and winds its way out onto Brunswick Street. The lovely ones are in line for the lift to the rooftop destination, Naked in the Sky. Anyone will tell you that the striking city and suburban skyline views from this iconic Fitzroy rooftop bar are worth the wait. You won’t be disappointed, summer or winter, by the shucked oysters, wild boar salami, cornichons, fried squid, jalapeño and cheddar croquettes with red pepper sauce, prawn skewers with pancetta, the baked Camembert or the twice cooked pork belly.
Jugs of sangria are cheap and plentiful and the house makes a full range of infused vodkas (think chilli and cherry, opium and rose, ginger, violet, watermelon). Gin, too, is revered at Naked in the Sky and you can choose from an elegant, refreshing, bougie, floral, savoury or refined gin experience.
The French, Italian, Spanish and Australian wine list is perfect for those days when a cheese platter and a tipple with friends makes the perfect dinner. Spend an afternoon or a long evening relaxing in this fine space.
