Historic Melbourne Venue The Fitzroy Pinnacle Hotel Damaged In Fire

Written by Nastassia Baroni on November 9, 2015

Iconic Melbourne venue, Fitzroy’s Pinnacle Hotel has suffered extensive damage, after a fire broke out in the building this weekend.

Reports Fairfax, a fire broke out inside the historic venue this past Saturday morning and was brought under control just after 10am. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Fire Brigade said the fire had been contained to the lower ground floor and said it may have been caused by a clothes dryer.

While the damage to the venue is estimated to be between around $150,000 to $200,000, operators took to Facebook to ensure patrons that no-one was harmed and promised that the hotel will be
“back bigger and better soon”.

“We’ll keep you posted on re-opening,” they added.

Gigs were scheduled to take place at the venue this weekend, though it currently remains unclear if they will go ahead.

As you may have seen we've had ourselves a bit of a mischief. Everyone is ok, and we'll be back bigger and better soon. We'll keep you posted on re-opening. See you soon friends X
