MELBOURNE | Located in an oddly shaped late 1800s building, The Fitzroy Pinnacle is a pub that exhibits old world charm in more than just its historical facade. Purchased by the current owners in 2006, this former land office, post office, and antique shop has become of of the most loved pubs in the area. One visit here and it’s easy to see why. The interior resembles an old lounge room, with comfy couches and an assortment of mismatched furniture, odds and ends, and a pool table of course. Service is friendly and the vibe completely relaxed and unpretentious.
There’s a beer garden out the back, and a separate dining room too, and while there’s no kitchen after the recent fire that occurred here, there’s usually something on offer that can be ordered in by the staff from a nearby food spot. The tap and bottle list contains something for everyone – from commercial lagers to craft beers, poured super fresh due to the Pinnacle’s lack of cellar space. For non-beer drinkers, there are around 25 different wines on offer at any time, with a focus on quality local drops.
For fans of live music, there’s something on most nights of the week, with a wide range of artists and genres to keep you and the diverse crowd of locals entertained.
