The Brunswick social is the perfect underground (literally) spot to grab dinner and a few drinks with friends before heading out for a night in the Valley.

Despite the industrial looking decor, with polished concrete and whitewashed brick walls, the venue is surprisingly intimate with that warm ‘no filter needed’ kind of lighting, and long wooden tables for groups.

Dumplings are super popular and perfect for big groups as you can order what you need and there’s generally something for everyone. Not hungry? Just get one serve. Really hungry? Get a full yum cha experience. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well.

Whether you’d like to hand pick your dumplings/steamed buns or have a 10 course dumpling banquet (for a modest $23 per person), it’s all very reasonably priced and a sure-fire way to start your night the right way.
