A must-visit courtyard bar lurks behind the door marked with an M on Brunswick Street.

If you like starting your nights out with a scavenger hunt, then Milney's fits the bill: first, you need to find the nondescript door on Brunswick Street that's marked with an M. Once that pivotal task is complete, your evening can begin. Venture inside and a must-visit courtyard awaits, complete with picnic bench-style seating, leafy greenery aplenty, a smattering of garden gnomes and an eye-catching mural taking up a towering slab of bricks.

It's the kind of place that makes you feel like you're in the know, whether you're sipping a beer poured from the back-wall tap while taking a perch at the wood-heavy bar, or a spritz out the back with a mixtape soundtrack is more your style.

The venue has a pedigree, too, with Monty Mullooly-Hill and Paul Milne also behind Monty's in Fitzroy North, and Rochelle Hutchinson bringing her experience from Joe's Shoe Store.
