The Laurel Rooftop Beer Garden has fast become an institution in the Ascot Vale area since opening and is only getting more popular as time goes by. Drop in and see it for yourself... You'll fall in love and make it your local..

Situated on top of The Laurel Hotel, you enter through the downstairs courtyard and upstairs you will find yourself in a unique surrounding of comfort and style. 
The perfect place to meet friends for a few drinks and a meal or celebrate your birthday. In the past we have hosted Live Music and DJ's over the weekend, but unfortuantly at the moment due to Council restrications (as per below) we can not have Live Music or DJ's on the Rooftop.
Let's hope we can in the near future....

Pefect on a Summer's day relaxing in the open air or on a cold winters night with our fully enclosed retractable roof and heaters... or grab yourself a blanket near the bar on your way in....

Our amazing cocktail list is a favourite amongst locals - Try one of our delicious Cocktail Jugs... you won't be dissapointed.

Our prices are far more reasonable than that of the city rooftops - So stay local!!!

We welcome large groups and tables can be booked at most times. The Rooftop has 'the aqaurium' which is a private area for up to about 30 people. The Rooftop can also be hired out exlcusively at times. So swing us an email on or

Winter Opening Hours - Can open earlier or later for Bookings

Due to some strict restrictions from the Moonee Valley City Council recently imposed, we are currently unable to keep the rooftop open past 10pm on most nights. We are hoping for this to change asap when we go back to VCAT! Sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime. We have a petition going if you want to show your support - please follow the link below.
