Brunswick's latest cocktail hotspot
Albert & Sydney, formerly known as Albert St Food & Wine in Brunswick, has recently opened its doors as Brunswick's latest cocktail bar.

Fresh after a revamp, Albert & Sydney is now open in Brunswick. Image courtesy of Albert & Sydney.


The revamp has turned the local into a relaxed bar ideal for young professionals keen for a sophisticated venue that's perfect for post work drinks, celebrations, or just catching up with friends. With a strong focus on a quality wine and cocktail list, the name is not only a nod to the bar's location on the corner of Albert Street and Sydney Road, but also reflects the two unique personalities of the bar; a mix of sophistication in a predominately grunge/hipster area. The 'Albert' side of the venue offers an industrial and edgy feel with bar seating, while the 'Sydney' side is a bit more contemporary and minimalist with booths for groups.

Additionally, following the revamp, the venue can be hired for events for up to 140 guests, so it's ideal for private parties and corporate functions.

Going with a group? The cauliflower fritters with chipotle mayo (above) is a great dish to share and it's a generous serve too! Keen for a dish all to yourself? Grab a main with some tasty sides like the green leaf or zucchini salad (below).
