Mr W

A perfect location for an after work drink to unwind or a gathering of friends for special occasions.

Who is Mr Wilkinson?

In the 1840s the Honourable Thomas Wilkinson became the founder of Brunswick when his house and farmland became the site of the first school and town hall. We tip our hat to the man who created the first local community. 

In 2008 we built a bar with the intention of offering a relaxed setting for locals to feel at home in. 

Enjoy Melbourne's spontaneous weather patterns in large comfortable booths overlooking Lygon St, or more intimate tables of two leading out to the brightly lit courtyard. 

However feel free to sit at the bar and have a chat with one of us for some pearls of wisdom that only an inappropriate barman should know.
