Personal favourite - located nowhere in the middle of Yarra river and under a bridge. And yes the view of the city from this place will have you in awe. During sunset you'll have to beat the crowd to get in the pub as the Melbourne skyline just looks magnificent from this place.

A bar built onto a pontoon in the middle of the Yarra! Enter via the pedestrian bridge.
