Affectionately known as the ‘Rego’ by locals, the club first opened 60 years ago but Dooleys Group recognised the post-covid shift in consumer behaviour to favour outdoor food and beverage and entertainment options, and the need for the venue to evolve.
To cater to a diverse and ever-growing market of older people and young families, one of three of the club’s outdoor bowling greens has been reimagined into an alfresco dining and entertainment space.
Pavilion General Manager Tomasz Pytraczyk said the outdoor space comprised an all-weather marquee, a pop-up bar and an outdoor kids play area.
There’s a variety of relaxed, comfortable seating in the shade or intimate tables for groups of all shapes and sizes.
“We’ve now got the space to cater for a much bigger community and have brought it to fruition just in time for the festive season,” Mr Pytraczyk said.
“It’s a beautiful, open, airy and sunny area and the fairy lights at night create a warm, homely vibe that makes you want to relax and soak it all in.
“This place has a soul and will definitely uplift you, you’ll want to come back for more.”
He said there would be plenty of live music and family activities such as face painting and a petting zoo to look forward to over the summer months.
The food offering has also been revamped, under the guidance of head chef Madan Panit, a two-time award-winner in the ClubsNSW Perfect Plate Awards.
The menu combines Australian flavours with an American twist, emphasising value for money and quality.
Classics like schnitzel, battered fish and juicy steaks will remain on the menu, alongside Pandit’s award-winning lamb rump and pork ribs with a homemade smoky glaze.
There will be barbecue options as well and a wide range of pizzas to satisfy every member of the family.
