The Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has announced approval for a sky-high 200-person luxury rooftop bar and restaurant along Melbourne’s iconic Chapel Street.
The restaurant will occupy level 24 of the $300 million Goldfields-developed 627 Chapel St commercial tower which is expected to be completed soon for summer.
“The 627 Chapel St rooftop bar and restaurant will become the go-to destination for unbeatable South Yarra sunsets,” said Managing Director of Goldfields, Marco Gattino.
“It’s designed to be a welcoming, sophisticated space with world-class views, great hospitality and luxury amenities.”

The new venue will cater for up to 200 patrons and have a seven-day operating licence in place, with the operator yet to be decided.
“Not only will the landmark tower offer a unique and intelligent working environment for businesses outside of the CBD, but the rooftop bar will also play an important role in contributing to the vibrancy and economic strength of the Chapel Street entertainment precinct after a tough couple of years,” added Mr Gattino.
“We have already shortlisted three well-known local groups and one international operator from Los Angeles to potentially partner with.
“The feedback from day one about this opportunity was overwhelmingly positive and now we know the exact parameters we can work in, we look forward to choosing the right partner to bring this vision to life.”
627 Chapel St is expected to have tenants move in around November after being topped out in June. It will feature over 24,000 square metres of prime commercial space.
