The Builders Arms Hotel has been many things to many people since it opened and became part of the fabric of Fitzroy in 1853. Since being taken over by Andrew "Midas Touch" McConnell, it's added a few more layers to its rich history – the latest being the Ricky & Pinky addition. Channeling country pubs crossed with Chinese restaurants of the 1960s and 1970s, Ricky & Pinky serves up a fine banquet (on a lazy Susan, no less) as well as snacks to go with drinks. Never mind the irony, everything at Ricky & Pinky exhibits the McConnell touch.
