The Joint Bar, located in Melbourne CBD, is a great little rooftop bar to socialise with friends. They have meals, drinks, themed nights, outdoor seating on the balcony and a pool table.
My friends and I like to catch up at the Joint Bar every so often because we feel it's a very laid back type of bar with patrons who are friendly and don't cause trouble.
There are tons of great reasons to visit the Joint Bar, some include $4 pizzas every day from 5pm (they taste so good, I highly recommend you try one), Tuesday is karaoke night, $5 cocktails during winter, trivia nights on Mondays and so on. We have visited on different nights and can say no matter what day of the week it is, you will always have a great time at the Joint Bar.
There is plenty of seating available, the music in the bar isn't too overbearing so you can still chat with your friends. There's a pool table as well for entertainment and the decking outside is nice to sit out on in the warmer months.
They serve some delicious food as well if you feel like something to eat, including pizzas, burgers and chicken. Each Wednesday a new meal is available so you get to try something new.
Overall, I find the Joint Bar to be a fun place to socialise and enjoy a drink. It's very handy that the train station is close by, so you don't need to worry about walking far or catching a taxi. They are open until 4am every night of the week.
