Naked in the Sky

It's the peak of summer so no better opportunity to visit one of Melbourne's great gems.  Naked on the Sky is the relatively recent rooftop extension to the madly popular Naked for Satan bar and eatery which specialises in Pintxos and Vodka.

Originally the Moran & Cato Merchants building, the structure at 277-285 Brunswick Street commenced construction during 1897 and remains one of Brunswick Street's premier buildings.

Whilst the externals have changed little for well over a century, the internals are a different story as seen above.  Dark and intriguing, the lower floors are worth the time taken to fully appreciate the fit-out, yet it's the rooftop terrace and associated views that steal the show.

The Naked for Satan website states the following of the rooftop:

As an extension of Naked for Satan, we bring you Naked in the Sky. An open terrace with an attached bar, lounge and restaurant. Naked in the Sky floats over Fitzroy with spectacular views of the city on one side and a full length vista of Brunswick Street on the other. You are beamed to the roof via an old lift shaft in the bowels of the building. Construction work has been carried out by the brilliant guys at Scalzo Constructions

And best of all, entry is free for all comers.  Well worth a visit during summer, but for those unable to, enjoy the image set below - click for a larger image.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...
