Captain Baxter

Modern Rooftop Beach Bar in St Kilda

Captain Baxter has long been known as Melbourne’s best beachside bar offering amazing food and entertainment.

This St Kilda bar and deck, overlooking St Kilda Beach, is renowned for live music and mouth-watering modern Asian inspired share plates.

If you’re looking for a unique St Kilda dinner venue with more, look no further. Well known for attracting some of Melbourne’s hottest DJ’s, guests and live music vendors, Captain Baxter is so much more than just a cocktail bar. With rooftop bar views of St Kilda Beach, world-class chefs producing culinary creativity with the freshest local produce, and a stunning seafood-focused menu, Captain Baxter is set to impress.

Featuring a retractable roof, Captain Baxter is the best rooftop bar in Melbourne all year round. The stunning architecture embraces its coastal location and the heritage flavour of the existing St Kilda Sea Baths building. Inspired by tropical beach bungalows of the 1920s, Captain Baxter has been designed with a fresh new palette of white, timber and rattan, with playful patterns and perforated textures.

Captain Baxter is the newest, freshest St Kilda beachside restaurant and cocktail bar, with unobstructed views, a tantalising selection of food and beverages. Get ready to be entertained.
