Brunswick’s bar scene combines new spots with established favourites. The décor in the newer cocktail lounges and bars can scream carefully curated cool, but there are definitely some laid-back places to have a drink and some that are pumping later into the night. Look out for the more unusual joints such as a West Coast cocktail bar and a venue with an indoor forest.
