Cumulus Inc & Cumulus Up
Modern, cool eatery and upstairs wine bar! One Hat, Age Good Food Guide.
Cumulus Inc is situated at 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, and Cumulus Up is upstairs. They are part of the Andrew McConnell group.
Arguably one of the busiest restaurants in Melbourne, Cumulus rapidly fills for breakfast in the mornings and remains seriously busy until close in the evening. Cumulus is a fine example of small restaurant (68 seats) doing an astonishing number of table turns during the course of each day. Diners have the choice of sitting at the bar, along the open kitchen or at one of the conventional tables and observe one of the most efficient teams of hospitality staff do their stuff with minimal fuss or signs of stress.
Cumulus features fantastic food, presented in a range of tasting and shared dishes, complimented by a hand picked wine list makes it one of our favourite places to eat. Other people obviously agree, because Cumulus is one of the best places to enjoy a spot of people watching while enjoying the best the industry has to offer. Sit at the bar, have a snack, or come-in and do the full bit.
Cumulus Up is a wine bar/restaurant which is open in the evenings. Originally mooted as an overflow for the downstairs restaurant which always seems to have a queue, Cumulus Up rapidly established itself as a popular destination in its own right. It also doubles as a function facility at lunchtime, catering to smaller, more intimate functions. Larger functions are held in the Arc One gallery behind Cumulus Inc.
