Full of character and busy with locals, The Pinnacle is an enchanting Fitzroy North pub that dishes up food of restaurant quality. This old Victorian-style, slice of pie building on the corner first graced Fitzroy North as a post office before becoming a favourite watering hole for locals and visitors in the mid-1990s.

This old Victorian-style, slice of pie building on the corner first graced Fitzroy North as a post office before becoming a favourite watering hole for locals and visitors in the mid-1990s. The intriguingly original yet slightly eerie interior flaunts luscious red velvet, cushy couches, plenty of oak, and tables that are affectionately named rather than numbered. However, the prize must go to The Pinnacle’s gritty yet charming beer garden, complete with outside dunny, corrugated iron shelter and a certain gravitational pull that attracts the artistically dishevelled locals on lazy afternoons and evenings. If weather permits, French-singing mademoiselles dignify this garden for The Pinnacle’s smooth Sunday jazz sessions but otherwise the rotating list of quartets and trios will light up the inside bar.

The modern Australian menu boasts chicken parmas as big as your arm and crumbed calamari that is tender and delicious, vegetarian options and hearty soups of the day. All dishes are well priced with mains starting at $12 but those patrons with one eye on the prize can slip into The Pinnacle on a Tuesday night to pick up a t-bone steak for a bargain $10.
