Bringing Melbourne’s art culture to life

Local artist Dwayne Hutton’s captivating art and hand-painted bespoke wallpaper cascades across the ceiling and further evolve digitally throughout the space. Dwayne has drawn on the electric atmosphere of Rooftop at QT, with music as his muse and the rooftop playlist as rhythmic inspiration to evoke moody, textured, and dynamic creations.

The venue boasts contemporary furniture, updated upholstery, and modern lighting – repurposing original pieces and giving them a second life as part of the QT’s overall sustainability goals.

QT Melbourne’s General Manager, Kristen Foat, shares, “The inspiration behind Rooftop at QT’s transformation lies in embracing the allure of rooftop culture, providing a venue for private moments and lively parties with friends you haven’t met yet.”
