Best Bars in Brunswick East

Updated 6 months ago


  • In a warehouse space furnished with little more than few plants and a pool table, get classic ham-and-cheese toasties and beers by a home-brewer with over 12 years of experience.

  • A romantic Italian joint with valentine-red booths and a beautiful oak bar. The owners pay homage to their predecessors with the venue’s original woodfired oven, and signature pizza – topped with passata, fior di latte and basil.

  • The younger sibling to Northcote's Joe's Shoe Store.

  • The sibling of Neighbourhood Wine is cool and comfortable. Take a seat at the bar, or in front of an open fire, and enjoy the rotating share plates and easy-drinking wines.

  • Simple, awesome burgers and a great community atmosphere.

  • A stylish yet unpretentious little bar.

  • A wine-focused bar-restaurant by La Luna’s Adrian Richardson.

  • When you’ve finished your drop, just come back and refill.

  • An incredible sound system. Absurdly good value house wines. And an unusual canteen-style window that passes drinks right onto the footpath. This is one of Melbourne’s most fun wine bars.

  • This colourful 350-capacity outpost for the beloved Beechworth brewery offers 30 taps, two bars and a jet-setting menu of crowd-pleasers. And it’s a working brewery, too, which means all of the Bridge Road favourites, plus site-exclusive special releases.
