East Brunswick Hotel

East Brunswick Hotel

Since the 1880's The East in all its forms has been a favourite of Brunswick locals.

After a break, the Lygon Street beauty has been lovingly and painstakingly patched, fixed and restored with more than a nod to its rock and roll past.

Whilst the band room has gone, the Hotel now comprises 12 boutique style serviced apartments, public bar, private cellar dining room and upstairs cocktail bar and balcony.


The original beer-cellar has been converted to a private dining room for up to 24 guests for a sit-down function, or 40 guests for a cocktail event. This room is suitable for board meetings, local business networking, product launches, themed private dinner events, food & wine matching events and intimate celebrations with family & friends.


Upstairs is a cocktail bar reminiscent of a luxury apartment with its own balcony, lounges, marble top bar and chandeliers. Perfect for social or corporate events, the room also has 2 mirrored screen televisions for presentations, or viewing a special sporting event. This space is suitable for cocktail functions for up to 80 guests and suitable for birthdays, weddings, engagements and other private get togethers.

The Age Digital Edition: East Brunswick second reboot

The East Brunswick Hotel (once the East Brunswick Club) will ring to the sound of live music for the first time since 2012 after reopening last week.

It has undergone its second renovation in less than three years. In late 2017, property developer Scott Didier bought it for $4.4 million. He will run the pub with his children.

The latest renovation is more of a refresh. Built over three floors , the pub features an underground private dining room and cellar, a groundlevel public bar, and upstairs cocktail bar and balcony. There are also 12 refitted apartments.

As an ode to the great bands that have played at the pub over the years, such as Jet, Angus and Julia Stone and Regurgitator, the stage in the public bar has been restored. The East Brunswick Hotel will again host live music from Thursdays through to Sundays.

Food is a little more upmarket than your standard pub fare. Alongside a fried chicken burger and the signature one-pound (450-gram ) meatball on mash are dishes such as ale-steamed mussels with bacon and garlic bread, a soba noodle salad bowl, and a vegan pulled '' pork"dish.

Open daily 11am-1 am.
