Perched on level 22 of the Vibe Hotel Melbourne building, Fleet bar has opened its doors serving up a large collection of rum.

Paul Kelly Design (Black Star, Crown Casino) worked to transform the hotel’s former penthouse apartments into the 90-pax rooftop bar.

Mixologist Grant Collins has curated the rum offering which features more than 70 tipples from local producers such as JimmyRum and Boatrocker Distillery alongside international examples.

The rum menu also features a vintage and rare bottle collection with tipples dating back to the 1930s.

Cocktail-wise, guests can expect Fleet’s own riffs on rum-centric creations such as the Piña Colada and Hurricane, plus classics such as the negroni and gimlet .

For those looking for something besides rum, the Fleet menu also features a collection of local and international gins, whisky, beers, and Victorian wines.

A martini trolley is also doing the rounds at Fleet to serve up a classic dry, olive leaf, or oyster shell martini to guests.

Chef Asish Kumar has also curated a bar menu for Fleet which sends a nod to local Victorian produce and is designed to pair with the drinks offering.

Dishes on the menu include Skull Island prawns with orange gastrique and puffed wild rice; braised pork cheek croquettes; half-shell seared scallops with Yarra Valley caviar; and lamb tenderloin with olive salsa, pickled fennel, and black garlic jus.

Fleet is now open Tuesday to Saturday from 3pm at Level 22, 1 Queen Street, Melbourne.
