Holy Moly

Hawthorn's 24-hour club now has a late-night pizza joint.

Dance, drink, pizza, repeat. Pizza and late-night partying remains one of history's most iconic duos and they're coming together in full force as 24-hour Hawthorn club Untz Untz launches its adjoining pizza joint and sports bar, Holy Moly, tonight.

The new venue has taken over the ground floor of the newly refurbished Glenferrie Road space and enjoy the same 24-hour liquor license. In addition, coffee and doughnut spot Cop Shop will launch next door shortly in April.

With a crack team of hospo pros behind it, Holy Moly has some intriguing features, not least of which is the $5 pizza menu, designed by Henry Chan (of Lucky Coq and Bimbo Deluxe) and available until midnight on weeknights and late on weekends. Jenna Hemsworth (former Black Pearl bartender and runner-up for Bartender of the Year 2015) has taken the reins of the drinks offering, which features a mix of classics and new-school creations, as well as two cocktails on-tap and three varieties of Bloody Mary.

The space comes courtesy of interior designer Michael Delaney (Honkytonks, Sorry Grandma), along with venue director Nick Foley, with the pair describing it as "a shrine to pizza and good times". Eat your pizza in the overtly holy-themed dining hall — with pews for seats, a shrine mounted on the wall and stained glass aplenty — or head over to the memorabilia-packed sports bar, which will be screening classic sporting moments on an 80-inch plasma, and Melbourne's first VOID sound system.
