Best Things to do in Brunswick

Working with clients across all industry verticals, we get to see a lot of Melbourne.

Brunswick is a located 4 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD and our offices in St Kilda Road. Traditionally a working class area noted for its large Italian and Greek communities, Brunswick is currently known for its bohemian culture and strong arts and live music scenes.

It’s also the home of Basfoods. Located in Victoria street, Basfoods is Australia’s leading importer and supplier of quality Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food products and one of Melbourne’s best kept shopping secrets.

Bring a trolley and be blown away by the variety and prices.

Home to the hipster, the intercontinental feeling is not lost. Drop in to one of Sydney Road’s many eateries, get a pair of jeans tailored just for you or catch some live music at one of the great hotels and bars.

Here are some of the best places and things to see and do:

Dejour jeans – get your own custom fitted pair from Dejour Jeans. The shop front functions like a factory outlet, offering on-site alterations and repairs on their own range of jeans at no extra cost. There are jeans in every colour and shape with a huge selection of men and women’s sizes.

Howler Bar – Howler is Brunswick’s warehouse-turned-art-and-live-entertainment space that has every soul northside in a fizz, with its timber-lined theatre and gallery for cinema screenings, plays and gigs.

Edinburgh Castle Hotel – This is a true community pub with kid’s meals, a daily pie, schnitzel and a cheese pizza, plus crayons, colouring books, and high chairs. Kids and hipsters can squawk loudly without disturbing each other.

Albert Street Food & Wine – this wine bar, restaurant and food store rolled into one has plenty of real estate, with booths, tables, and posts at the recycled-basketball-court bar for snack-and-dashers, plus all the Brunswick décor essentials like industrial light fittings and exposed beams.
