The rumours are true. The East Brunswick Club will be closing its doors for the final time in March.
The announcement comes as owners Pete and Pam Benjamin sold the building and the new owners have no intention of continuing it as a live music venue.
The pub is one of the best sounding rooms in Melbourne with walls designed with acoustics in mind. The venue regularly played host to international and local artists.
At the moment gigs are scheduled by The Jim Jones Revue, Jordie Lane, Sons and Daughters, Jim Ward and Yuck to name a few. Head on over to http://eastbrunswickclub.com/ to get yourself a ticket.
Recently Melbourne has seen the closures of The Art House and The Public Bar, both in North Melbourne and music fans from south of the river wait with baited breath to see what The Melbourne Pub Group plans on doing with their recently acquired Prince of Wales Hotel. They have already announced that they would turn the public bar into a swanky eatery.
Fortunately, for the time being, we still have The Old Bar, The Northcote Social Club, The Corner Hotel, The Great Britain Hotel, The Tote, The Hifi Bar and more (sorry to all the great venues I left out). Be sure to get your arse down to one of these venues SOON so we don’t lose any more.
