You don’t want to know :—))

Oh you do? OK then….

…..it’s a bar called Bimbo Deluxe, more commonly known by the afficionados as Bimbo’s. A place to be seen and heard.

Thank you Victoria for the title

Goes with Pizzart

From Bimbo’s website
Now on the brink of adolescence, this Brunswick Street bar has become a Fitzroy icon. For seven days of the week its offering of cheap pizza and unique entertainment can be called upon from midday until well into the early morning. $4 gourmet pizzas accompany a diverse range of beer, wine and spirits to be enjoyed amongst the lounges or in the rooftop courtyard. The warmer weather will see live bands take to the outdoor stage beneath Moroccan lights.

Downstairs on any given night you can find some of Melbournes most talented DJ’s mixing an array of music styles from Hip Hop to Disco, House and techno, Rock, Soul and Funk.

  • Thanks Rafael, I just visited you gallery and I can see you love creepy – really cool use of low light. Bimbo’s S&M dolls hanging on the wall would approve. Me too :—))

    Hell Id hang out there just for the name all day every day lol

  • Hi Mad (this OK?), I have just been to your gallery and can see why this image caught your eye. I think you’d like Bimbo’s. Take a tour (see active link top right). People have been known to “live” at Bimbo’s, it’s at the heart of Melbourne’s new bohemia (always shifting, but right now it’s in Fitzroy)

    Nothing fancy Bimbo’s Street

    I love this, made me laugh out loud!

  • I had the same reaction when I saw it the first time. Now I think it looks creepy, a bit like Chucky ;—)) Thanks Virginia.

    well before that happens, you may need to buy me a coffee and a drink as well, looks like a cool place to hang out

  • Chortle! You’ll need fishnet stockings and hot pants to get in Aart :—)) Most of the afficionados are younger than my kids. My daughter swears by the $4 pizza though – just the thing at 3:00am they say.

    don’t tempt me, I have a pic exactly like that, just taken last year in fact. But I hear what you’re saying, you wouldn’t be able to make till 3.00a.m………… :-))

  • Thanks pal! :—))

    This is too weird (the subject matter). You still take excellent b, w and grey shots. Lighting is good. :-)

  • So many confused messages in the branding of this place. It would have been interesting to be at the gathering that decided on the theme. The colour version of this didn’t help the uneasy feeling at all. B+W was better in its distillation to only form. The lighting did help: north is to the left and the shadow across the dolls face made it look even more suspect.
