A mesmerising bar steeped in history, Pino Pinelli Public Bar has so many stories to tell. Whether it's about the history of the building itself or the most quirky customers it's welcomed over the past decades, they have all sorts of surprises up their sleeves.
Housed in an imposing-looking black building on a street corner in Collingwood, Pino attracts curious, open-minded individuals who are up for a good time. No doubt the happy drinkers on the picnic benches outside have tempted you in, and once inside you'll fall for their lux gothic look that brings together reddish woods, red brick walls, dark furnishings and dramatic chandeliers to create a sense of mystique. Grand but approachable, sexy but easy-going, Pino is anything you want it to be.
The menu sides very much with the Italian way of life, and there's not a single soul who's complaining. They've put their own spin on the classic pizza with Bee Sting, Tony, Donny and Anarchist juggling ingredients like smoked ham, pickled onion, pork sausage, pistachio pesto and mortadella. Then you have the Vego Box, Mr White and Funky Funghi which the resident omnivores will be very happy about.
They're also lending a hand to pasta, rustling up fresh batches every day. And seeing as you resisted the temptation of pizza, reward yourself for a Nutella and strawberry calzone for dessert; it's the ultimate life hack!
