It's hard to miss Bimbo Deluxe - you just need to look for the creepy naked baby doll floating unnaturally atop the building. The creepy doll theme is very much part of the décor inside, infused with the general flea market atmosphere. The place definitely has character.
Once inside, let your eyes adjust to the darkness and try to get a seat among the various mismatched chairs and couches. If you can't find a seat venture upstairs where you'll stumble upon the rooftop garden. The best news is that you can order your pizza from there as well.
Sister bar to Fitzroy's Bimbo Deluxe, The Luckycoq is located on the corner of Chapel St and High St. The Luckycoq feels more spacious to Bimbo Deluxe and promotes the 'coq' theme.
The venue still has array of mismatched furniture, odd tables and surprisingly comfortable second hand couches. There's an open air courtyard upstairs and on certain nights a live jazz band can be heard.
The menu isn't too different from Bimbos Deluxe, expect to find 12 vegetarian pizzas, 6 meat, 4 seafood and 4 dessert pizzas.
As with Bimbo Deluxe the pizzas are delicious and you are sure to find your favourite.
Mon- Thur – 7-11pm
Fri – Sat – 7-9pm

If you're looking for a more sophisticated atmosphere but still want to enjoy a $4 pizza - Asian Beer Café is for you.
The café can be a great place for a first date, offering a relaxing ambiance with dimmed lighting and candles on the tables. There are plenty of seating around for large groups and also more intimate seating.
The cushions on the couches make the place feel even more comfortable and you are sure to enjoy your cheap pizza.
There are eight pizzas on the menu, each pizza named after different cartoons. There are two signature pizzas, Where the Wild Things Are, which is a Thai green chicken curry pizza and Barbar the Elephant, a tandoori chicken pizza that comes with plain yoghurt. There are also three vegetarian pizzas.
