The mol­ecules of the title compound, [Cu2Br4(C10H8N2O2)2], are centrosymmetric dimers. The CuII atom exhibits a distorted square-pyramidal coordination geometry, with two bridging bromide ligands and the N atoms of the 4,4′-dihy­droxy-2,2′-bi­pyridine chelate in the equatorial plane. π–π stacking and hydrogen-bonding inter­actions of the O—H⋯Br, C—H⋯·Br and C—H⋯O types consolidate the crystal packing.
