What is it about The Brunswick Green that makes it so damn cool? Maybe it’s the red velvet couches. Or the Persian carpets. Or those beautiful wrap-around windows overlooking the beer garden. Or the bar, covered in bottles and photos and random knick-knacks. Or that front band room, with its stage and lamps and framed pictures…
Or maybe it’s the refreshing lack of pretentiousness. Nobody seems to be trying too hard here.
This place epitomises everything good about the Melbourne bar scene — including, of course, live music. Apart from featured gigs, there’s a regular free jazz night on Thursdays (from 8.30pm) and blues on Saturday afternoons (2pm till 6pm), also free.
Visit. Enjoy. Maybe I’ll see you there.
