Brunswick Street Mall’s modern evolution continues with the arrival of a new 24-hour venue in the heart of the entertainment precinct’s main strip. Beirne Lane is a gastropub-style venue from Trent Meade and Matt Blyth of Celissa Group, the team behind Isles Lane, The Met and GPO. Beirne Lane not only nods to the building’s namesake T.C. Beirne in name, but also when it comes to food – the menu reflects the renowned businessman’s Irish heritage as well as his love and fascination with Japan. A selection of bar snacks, raw items, substantial Josper-grill dishes, sides and desserts are on offer – think cheesy Japanese curry-covered chips, baked cob loaf with beer cheese, king prawns with black-garlic butter, chicken-fat popcorn and an entire section of the menu dedicated to katsu sandos. A extensive drink and cocktail list also features, including the venue’s signature cocktail (also inspired by Mr Beirne himself), On Boys! We Must Have Another! The venue is open 24/7, encouraging drinking, eating and dancing all day and all night.
