FREE peep at Melbourne's most iconic pool

Anyone who has been wandering down Flinders Lane and caught sight of the Adelphi Hotel's swimming pool has done a double take. It is suspended above you and juts out over the laneway. It is glass bottomed so you can see swimmers doing their laps.
But goodness knows what they can see. Is it scary looking down at you, the other pedestrians and the traffic. Do they get vertigo?

I am sure I am not alone in wanting to have a swim there. Now you can.
They have also come up with heaps of retro cocktails sponsored by Chandon; Midori; Jose Cuervo; and Melbourne-based organic drink company – StrangeLove.
The bartenders, led by Carl Hamilton have spent months creating modern spins on retro cocktails so you can enjoy an 'Adelphi Wallbanger', 'Nice Melons', 'Midori Delusion', and 'No Sex on the Pool Deck'.
The cocktails will complement the backdrop of the Melbourne skyline. What could be nicer than a summer sunset, and a colourful cocktail on a rooftop bar in the city.
As you might expect there is a barbecue as well of gourmet sausages.
I checked this amazing event out today & was not disappointed by what it had to offer ! The swim over flinders land was amazing, the peeping into apartments & offices 8 floors up felt naughty & the fact that I, my husband & two kids were welcomed was even better. Next time I'd definetly do the experience with girlfriends so I could indulge in some cocktails & socialising . Thank you so much weekend notes for sharing this info : )))
