Looking for stylish and elegant, stunning views, or hidden basement bars? This list of top 5 date night city bars has you covered.

1. Lui Bar

High up on the 55th floor of Rialto Towers, this venue will impress with stunning 180 views across Melbourne. Creative cocktails and an extensive spirits list, delectable food, and exceptional service. Still my absolute favourite. 525 Collins St, Melbourne.

2. Byrdi

Don't let its shopping mall location deter you. This intimate bar, which showcases the natural and seasonal ingredients of Australia, is for the curious. The server will guide you according to your taste palate and they always are spot on! 211 La Trobe Street, Tenancy GD075, Melbourne.

3. Beneath Driver Lane

Dimly lit with quiet private tables (or booths if you are early) on weeknights, crowds and live music Friday and Saturdays. Fabulous for lovers of whiskey. Shop/3 Driver Ln, Melbourne.

4. Waterslide Bar

Balcony seating with stunning views of Flinders St Station and the Yarra, and an impressive cocktail menu inspired by Jules Verne's classic novel "Around the world in 80 days". Where are you going to travel to? MR3, Southgate Ave, Southbank.

5. Bar Margaux

Chic with a French bistro menu, this place is perfect for a romantic late night supper. Beggar's banquet (champagne, steak tartare, oysters, and frites) available during Golden Hour (5-7PM and 10-12PM). Basement/111 Lonsdale St, Melbourne.
