Good news, Melbourne Uni students. There's gonna be a new place to go and drown your REB exam blues. The Prince Alfred (PA's for short) is getting its very own brand new rooftop bar, and it's brought to you by the legends at the 100 Burgers Group. 

If you've been living under a rock, The Prince Alfred has been a student watering hole since 1926, located a hop, skip and jump from Melbourne University, After shutting its doors in 2015, this iconic institution is set to re-open this Feb. And the plans sound sexy. 

If Melbournians are good at two things, it’s décor revamps and rooftop bars. The new rooftop at Prince Alfred will feature a deep blue palette, copper detailing and vivacious designs. Kind of a modern spin on the classic (royal) pub concept. 

“While the exterior is going to stay the same, the interior has been completely overhauled. We’ve taken inspiration from the Italian influences on Carlton and mixed it up with botanical elements,” says Daragh Kan, founder of the 100 Burgers Group.

The new venue will have a rotating kitchen, serving up our favourite pub meals, and spitting out a fresh menu every month! Special mention goes to Sunday’s bottomless rooftop pancakes

“Having a rotating kitchen allows us to work with up and coming chefs and food operators and give us the opportunity to do some really exciting collaborations,” says Daragh Kan. 

100 Burgers has a pretty impressive resume. They’re the masterminds behind Welcome to ThornburyBelles Hot ChickenMr BurgerHightailMurmur Piano Bar and a bunch of other Melbourne must-eats.

At the moment, all we know is that the new rooftop venue will be open in Feb. Watch this space for all the particulars. 

Speaking of outdoor drinking, Sandringham just got a new gin garden
