Welcome to The Labour In Vain

The Labour In Vain is a Brunswick Street institution – a haven for rock and roll misfits and locals alike. Our intimate bar stocks a range of the finest draught beers, wine and spirits plus we have a sunny beer deck with pop-up BBQ and regular free live music. Drop in for a catch up with mates, to take in some fine tunes or to celebrate a special occasion on the beer deck.
