“Disorganised (lack of) service is so unprofessional. Nice view though.”
Review of Blue Diamond

Blue Diamond
Ranked #146 of 195 Nightlife in Melbourne
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 February 2015 via mobile

Nicely presented staff and bar. Amazing view (level 15) but the service for me was very average with the exception of the hostess who seemed busy but actually helpful. First visit we arrived at 5pm and the gates were locked (sign says open at 4). Even though the sign says to book your function (and it's the polite thing to do when bringing 30+ people to a venue), don't bother. Didn't even ask for a name upon booking and then didn't reserve an area anyway. When we returned for the party, the sign on the street says happy hour 4-9. Bartender stopped happy hour at 7. No biggie, but I mentioned they should change their sign. He swore it said 7 and I suggested he check. I checked on the way out and still said 4-9. Cheeky.

This is such an amazing place... Not only are the views in themselves amazing but the music, that exclusive atmosphere and the wonderful host of the night really made the night so so special!
We also had our own private booth which was made up of luxurious leather couches & everyone felt like a million bucks with a cigar in one hand and a crazy fun cocktail in the other.
Thank you guys for the best night ever!!

Reviews and photos appears enticing however decor looked like a cheap '80s joint. Discovered if you don't book ahead is $15 per head cover charge. Better value can be found else where. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

We stopped here twice - the views are amazing, but it was very quiet. We had a couple of beers and watch the sunset, then returned later in the evening for a nightcap. Great spot to stop in.

But this is a bar, not really an attraction - Trip Advisor probably needs to update the listing.

It is a great place to be, especially on Saturday night. There is a Jazz Band playing till midnight and a DJ afterwords. The place is really busy, the atmosphere very friendly. The bartenders are very helpful and knowledgeable. You can also book a private function. I love fantastic view of Melbourne's skyline!
