The Builders Arms Hotel is currently undergoing a refurbishment and will be closed for a short period from Monday 8 August, reopening Monday the 29th of August.

After 4 incredible years operating as a Bistro and Public Bar, the venue is about to embark on its next incarnation, Ricky & Pinky – Fitzroy’s newest Chinese restaurant which will be housed within the Builders Arms Hotel.

Chinese restaurants within Australian pubs are nothing new. They hark back to the days of country pubs of the 1960s and 1970s, where Chinese restaurants juxtaposed with neighborhood public houses.

The space will be playful, vibrant, and smile-inducing, and will remain a regular meeting place for drinks, and meals to be shared. The sacred Front Bar of the pub will remain unchanged, as will the exterior and soul of the building.
Stay tuned as further details of Ricky & Pinky will be available soon…
