Builder's Arms Hotel

The Builders Arms Hotel is a historic pub on Gertrude Street Fitzroy, the public bar has been whetting the whistle of locals since 1853.

Housing a public bar, restaurant, private dining spaces and a courtyard, the Builders Arms Hotel is a regular meeting place for drinks and meals to be shared.

The Public Bar offers around ten rotating draught beers, and a comprehensive wine list of vintages from near and far. Bar snacks and counter meals are available all day for those wishing to settle in for a while.

Ricky & Pinky is our restaurant within the Builders Arms Hotel. Serving Hong Kong-style Chinese food, the bright and lively space has been welcoming diners since August 2016.

Ricky & Pinky follows an old Australian tradition of the 1960s and 1970s, when Chinese restaurants were common in public houses. We’ve brought history back, in a very different way.

This iconic public house has seen many incarnations over the years – it has been a live music venue, a guesthouse and even a bordello.

RICKY & PINKY


Ricky & Pinky is the vibrant restaurant at the heart of the Builders Arms Hotel.

The open kitchen serves Hong Kong-style Chinese food which honours the traditional and flirts with the obscure, just the way we like it. Diners can find regional classics such as Sichuan pork dumplings, roast Chinese duck and strawberry clams in XO sauce with fried doughnuts, alongside some more unexpected treasures. Complete your meal with a sweet treat in the form of an X.L. fortune cookie.

The inviting and colourful space was designed by Sibling architects. Your favourite aspects of Chinese restaurants can be seen everywhere. Fish tanks with an ever changing array of market fish, crustaceans and molluscs means that freshness has a new benchmark. Lazy Susans make sharing family banquet-style sharing both fun and practical.

Head Chef ArChan Chan has worked in McConnell’s restaurants for six years, previously at Supernormal and Golden Fields. The Hong Kong native’s mastery of elegant and accessible Asian cuisine sees the Ricky & Pinky menu eschew formalities and structure, and includes shared snacks, smaller plates and larger dishes. All appetites are welcome.
