Bars in Fitzroy
Fitzroy has a busy, eclectic and sometime hectic bar scene. It is certainly Melbourne’s – and possibly Australia’s – biggest and most thriving place for a cocktail, beer on tap and a night on the tiles. Brunswick Street and its surrounds bustle with drinkers going between rooftop bars, band venues, nuevo-speakeasies, straight up-and-down pubs and cocktail and wine bars. And while they are all densely packed all destinations in Fitzroy are different. We’ll help you find what you’re looking for.
