Amelia Shaw

A sleek weekend-only cocktail bar above the Retreat Hotel.

A venue quite commonly missed — even by those of us who've been strolling by for nearly a decade — is Amelia Shaw. Tucked just inside of Brunswick's Retreat Hotel, and named after the hotel's first 1842 female licensee, Amelia Shaw boasts several upstairs rooms that transport you into the 1920s prohibition era. It's also the perfect place to take any pool shark aficionado. Why? Because it features a wonderfully confusing circular pool table.

Patrons can visit this unique cocktail bar and salon on Friday and Saturday evenings. However, the space is regularly booked out for functions, so check its Facebook page before dropping in.
