We pretty much stick to local pubs for our beverage recommendations. The Rainbow kind of fits the bill but is also close to Brunswick St giving it a mix of local and visitor clientele. It has a familiar story. Great bar that supports live music - gets really popular and people want to move to the area, prices go up and people who moved to area for the vibe and the scene complain about noise from pub that started it all. Still some quieter gigs here.
