The Evelyn holds a special place in the hearts of Melburnians, particularly those who find regularly themselves on Brunswick Street. Affectionately known as "The Ev" to those who frequent it, it’s home to cheap drinks and live music seven nights a week.
A little less hardcore in vibe than its smaller but older cousin The Tote, The Evelyn is unpretentious and relaxed. Punters hang out at the bar and sip beer with bands before they hit the stage or take to the outside tables along the pavement to watch traffic meander by on Brunswick Street.
Over the years, the band room has played host to an array of local and international talent. From classic rock to contemporary hip-hop, The Evelyn has heard it all. Perfect for after work drinks or a spontaneous gig, the pub is home to friends both old and new.
