With a few recent changes, Fitzroy's well-loved Builders Arms Hotel is revisiting its roots as a quintessential Melbourne pub, having added even more of those classic offerings you come to expect from a good old-fashioned local.
Now, further cementing its status as a neighbourhood gem, the Builders is kicking off a new series of monthly trivia nights, launching next Wednesday, October 10. Working a bit of hump day fun into the second Wednesday of each month, they'll be helmed by famously irreverent foodie and host of Triple R's Sunday Eat It program, Cam Smith.
Each month, contestants will find themselves engaging in a fierce battle of the facts, with three rounds of questions covering topics from booze and food, to art, culture and even Fitzroy itself. Prepare your senses for a few bonus interactive rounds as well — bling tastings may be on the cards.
The prize situation will change up regularly, though champion teams are in for treats like wine magnums, gourmet meat trays from nearby Meatsmith, loaded food hampers and vouchers to the bistro. Individual prizes are also up for grabs.
Hungry trivia-goers will be spoilt for choice with the kitchen's new British-accented bistro menu, as well as the courtyard's charcoal rotisserie grill, spinning a meat offering that changes daily.
