If the success of The Island and Seadeck have taught us anything, it's that the consumption of beverages is that much more exciting in a venue that is buoyant. It could be the gentle sound of lapping water, the alfresco dining, or maybe it's the fact that floating bars are instantaneously more Instagramable than any other bar perched on land. While Sydney has the sea-worthy bar down pat, Melbourne has been slow to jump onto the bandwagon, until now. Introducing Supafish Melbourne's floating bar that is quite literally is a giant fish perched atop the Yarra River, and your newest summer hangout.

The 40 metre bar is the brainchild of Grant Smille and Andrew Mackinnon who wanted to "push the envelope" fusing futuristic design with food and drink. The recycled fitout does not compromise on aesthetic; neon lights frame the 'cage' of the giant carp-like fish, which is completely exposed for outdoor (and out at sea) dining.

There is no shortage of margaritas and espresso martinis aboard Supafish, or if you are after a health kick (with a buzz of alcohol) try the Supafish ombucha cocktail. The food is an instant crowd pleaser, serving up an all-day Mexican grazing menu of Huitlacoche Quesadilla, El Pstor Quesadilla, Totopos Corn Chips with Salsa, and Ceviche.

Supafish is open from 11:00am - 1:00am daily. Entry is via Southbank Blvd in between Ponyfish Island and Sandridge Bridge, Southbank Promenade, Southbank VIC.
