New heights - Canberra's first roof top bar opens

Olivia Meenie

Your new favourite after work drinks destination is here. Last Thursday night, the Fashion Vault girls were invited along to this luxurious opening night of the Howling moon. Watching an incredible sunset we enjoyed good company, canap├ęs and the most incredible cocktails.

We were lucky enough to taste the ‘Tame The Wild’ menu first hand and let’s just say the cheese and antipasto enthusiasts of Canberra will have their pallet’s pleased for the rest of the night.

I was blown away by the range of cocktails as I often find selections can get repetitive and fail to offer anything new, but these concoctions offered a pleasing point of difference.

My personal favourite was the creamy mixture with the purple flow on top, which tasted like drinking liquid ice cream with a cocktail twist.

But it’s the interior design of this refurbishment that makes you feel like you are three times above your pay-grade. It is decked out in the most beautiful garden features, with dashes of red through the bar. The two levels centre around lavish glass stairs that trust me (I speak from experience) capture the most incredible photo shots. With views of the entire city, this rooftop bar makes you feel like you are high on life.
It is the type of place where you will plan to wear your new designer shoes, just so that you can get the perfect Instagram picture. Make sure to check out this new Canberra hot spot and ‘experience sheer opulence at the capital’s finest venue’.

Our girl Deejay was on hand to take some social snaps of the VIP's of the night.
