Cheap but quality pizza and excellent music. A killer combination. Throw in some ambience and you are set.

For students and hipsters its a great pizzeria come club. I compare it somewhat to Lucky Coq in South Yarra. 

We know about cheap pizza in the CBD - I can source it for $4 in some locations but it doesn't please. Bimbo's has a good reputation over the last 10 years as a Fitzroy icon with decent pizza.

Check out the illustrious Calabrese or the Gorgonzola or the Vedure... These are classic pizzas. Or try the Dogs such as the Mexico Dog or the Aussie Dundee...

Quirky op shop furniture, beer garden and rooftop... With boutique beers to boot. This place is an institution.

Now some breaking news...

To celebrate their 10th birthdayBimbo Deluxe will serve pizza at the price as when they opened - at $2 for lunch and $3 for dinner - from Monday 26 November until Sunday 2 December

The cheaper-than-cheap pizzas are part of the week long celebrations, which also includes DJ's every night and infused vodkas

Selling more than 2 million pizzas in ten years, the Brunswick Street bar has become a Fitzroy icon known for music, cheap pizza’s and more recently, Deluxe Dogs (a range of six hotdogs).  

Not always a celebrated venue, in 1992 when Bimbo Deluxe first opened they were met with outrage from The Punters Club regulars (the building they took over) and those who assumed the name was offensive (including Triple R who blocked advertising).

Rock on Bimbo Deluxe.
