Strato restaurant and bar crowns the Oakwood Premier Hotel at level 40, with unparalleled views across the Melbourne city skyline and out to Port Phillip Bay. The statement Sky Bar and terrace are complemented by two further bars in a VIP area and in the adjoining fine dining Strato restaurant.
The bar space is a connected elemental sensory experience beginning from the Oakwood Hotel ground level entry flowing through to the 40th level. The Hotel entry is grounding with linkages to place via Yarra River-inspired integrated driveway waterfall and a 3D vertical lobby sculpture before entry to the lobby lift.
Guests are greeted at lift exit with surrounding aerial view projections evoking a feeling of infinity. The lift corridor ceiling is deliberately low and the bar partially obstructs the view to enable just a glimpse of the sky views.
Guests are then enticed to advance into the bar for the full, grand 360-degree unobstructed view. They can then relax in the luxurious low-line, tactile furniture and fully experience the sense provoking surrounds with the further ability to immerse into the sky via the New York style open-air terrace. All culminating in a luxurious, unique connection to Melbourne experience.
