“Australia… fancy a pint?” asked the Foo Fighters on social media, and I’m so excited by the prospect of a Foo Fighters branded bar and beer, I won’t even point out that pints are traditionally a Melbourne or a British thing, and not dreadfully common in NSW.

The Foo Fighters Hotel opens on Wednesday night in Sydney, taking over a bar that was once named The Hollywood Hotel during a simple time, while Fooie Bar launches Sunday at the former Cherry Bar in Melbourne. This will be exclusive merch, trivia, drinks, and random giveaways.

Young Henry’s are supplying a Foo-branded beer too, in case you thought you’d be smashing VB or something.

Check out the timetable below, along with the tour dates for their upcoming Australian tour with fellow legends Weezer, kicking off next week.
