Built in 1854, the Cornish Arms was once a favourite for gold diggers (of the literal variety) and has been a main-stay of Brunswick social life for over a century. With Thursday trivia, Mexican nights and acoustic Sunday sessions, this pub on Brunswick's Sydney Rd offers more than cheap grub and pints. Enjoy the spacious courtyard or settle in for some live music and DJs every weekend, with plenty of beers on tap and cocktails on offer.
