Newtown Workers Club

This may be old news but The Rob Roy has new owners and will be renamed 'Newtown Workers Club' which I don't get as it's in Fitzroy maybe the Fitzroy Workers Club would be a better name. The new owner is Jerome Borazio, the man behind St Jerome's, Sister Bella and Happy Palace. From what I read in the Age on Monday, it will be more of a restaurant and have some gigs later at night. Hopefully this will not be like what happen to the Punters turning into Bimbo Deluxe.

Before being called Fitzroy the area was known as Newtown

That makes sense now. Thanks for the history lesson.

As if Bimbos is better than Punters club. I suppose youre in support of The Tote turning into a pizza bar too?

Thanks for pointing that out, I need to proof read these posts.

No I hope that it doesn't turn into a Bimbo's deluxe, can't stand the place. Although not much we can do with these companies turning these
