Live bands, complimentary menu tastings, plus thousands of dollars of prizes are all on offer this weekend to launch the revamped Balgowlah RSL.

The club’s latest dining options, the Bayshores Bistro and Bar and the Bayshores Café, are now open with the bistro offering an inspirational selection of tempting cuisine from an extensive a la carte menu with regular specials, while Bayshores Café is the ideal choice for people wanting a light and healthy meal, or a homemade muffin with gourmet coffee in comfortable and sophisticated surroundings.

These two new eateries follow the recent opening of the Club’s tasteful and contemporary Gold Bar, stocking a range of boutique beers, including 20 on tap, and a selection of exotic cocktails and wine.

Originally built by volunteers from the Balgowlah Seaforth Clontarf Sub Branch formed in 1945, the original site was acquired through fund-raising activities such as raffles and dinner dances. The members cleared the land themselves and worked on weekends to slowly build the first Balgowlah RSL Memorial Hall.

The club has changed its shape, style, and offerings several times with major upgrades in 1977, 1990, and 2007. The latest changes follow the opening of the Club’s hugely successful Wine Bar and Restaurant last year, with an open fire, plush leather sofas, and an amazingly intimate ambiance, that all pushed the club to new level of sophistication and style.

The events on Friday and Saturday - May 18 and 19 - celebrate the major remodelling that has taken place. Join in the fun and try your hand at winning prizes that including a $3,000 voucher to purchase Jimmy Choo shoes, golf clubs to the value of $3,000, a $500 Decjuba Voucher and dinner in The Wine Room for 10 valued at $500. On top of this, there will be reduced-priced drinks, $1 oysters, and a complimentary drink for diners in Bayshores Bistro.
