If you're jonesing for something different to shake up those Melbourne nights, then this quirky bar is sure to satisfy all of your night life/banana and maple syrup pancake needs. If you're the kind of person who likes to keep it 'fresh', and likes 'fresh' to come at a low cost, then Bimbo's is right up your alley, or on the corner of Brunswick and Rose Street, Fitzroy, in this case. What appears to be a normal pub is in fact a pizza and entertainment haven. With a different special for every day of the week, it's hard to get bored.
On Mondays you can throw out your textbooks, defer your uni course for a night and become a disc jockey, all you need is an iPhone or an iPad.
On Tuesdays it's time to fish your books out of the rubbish, kick back and listen to some local artists.
Wednesday night is time to get your freak on with an assortment of 'uneasy listening, freaked out bass jams, romantic comedy disco and tropi-jazz soundtracks' and stuff...
Thursday's that time of the week where the wallet's a little lighter and the college vending machine is empty so $4 pizzas don't go astray.
Fridays are a party mix of drinks special, free entry (whoo!) and toe tapping beats.
Saturday nights involve a thing called 'Hotstep' described as 'post-disco/pre-house', and if that doesn't immediately draw you in, curiosity will.
Sundays are a culmination of the week's efforts, you'll either leave drunk, full and satisfied or emotionally and psychologically scarred. Bimbo's is a great bar with enough pizza and beverages to to turn a bad day at uni into a night to remember, or better yet; one you won't.
