Free Pizzas From Kewpie

Mon 8th November, 2021 – Fri 12th November, 2021
376 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
Price: Free
AKA the bar that was once Bimbo (and Bimbo Deluxe before that). The $5 pizzas remain, and there are free pizzas up for grabs when it reopens.

Fitzroy favourite Bimbo has been closed since the onset of the pandemic. But it’s reopening with a new name and new management.

The Brunswick Street bar has been renamed Kewpie – after the familiar giant Kewpie doll on the building’s exterior – by new operator, Melbourne-based hospitality group Australian Venue Co. It owns a raft of venues across the city, including Perseverance, also on Brunswick Street, and Richmond’s Harlow.

But that’s about as far as the changes go; the ridiculously cheap pizzas – starting from just $5 a pop – aren’t going anywhere. And to celebrate the reopening, Kewpie is giving away 50 free pizzas every day from November 8 to November 12. That’s 250 total.
