Smooth Jazz, Swing Dancing at Transit Cocktail LoungeThe sounds of a live Jazz band wafts down the hall as you reach the third floor of the Transport Hotel complex in Federation Square.
Sink into the velvet lounges and enjoy the ambiance as you await you drink.
They have an extensive martini menu, as well as a range of elegant cocktails – their Pink Sling with pink and ruby grapefruit offers a refreshing, sweet taste topped with plum bitters to balance is a favourite.
While there is a high-class vibe, the atmosphere is not at all pretentious.
Most Friday and Saturdays a small group of swing dancers will take to the floor to practice their moves, giving the lounge a casual speakeasy vibe.
Come for the cocktails, stay for the balcony views over the Yarra, MCG, and the Arts Spire – some of the best in the city.
