Summer in Forestville

December 11, 2020

Here we go! Summer in Sydney. What a fantastic time of year to be in, arguably, Australia’s greatest city. The drinks are cold, the weather is hot and time spent on Pickets is uber-relaxed. And if all of that is not enough, soon it will be Christmas!

There’s plenty happening at Forestville RSL Club over Summer. You may have already noticed that our staff have changed uniforms. We’ve had some great feedback regarding the new, ‘brighter’ look.

Pickets has expanded! Five more tables were recently added in anticipation of the larger Sunday afternoon crowds expected to visit and listen to the live music. We’ve also re-launched Sunday morning Breakfast with an updated menu. How does an alfresco breakfast at the club sound?

The jacaranda trees are blooming which means Christmas is just around the corner. The club’s Christmas trees are up and decorated and we have some exciting events planned for the festive season.

In a first for our club we will be opening on Christmas Day.  This decision is based on member feedback and the fact that many people are looking for an alternative to the enormous amount of work that goes into preparing a traditional Christmas meal at home.  If this is you, please contact the club and book your tickets.  The menu is great, there’s live entertainment and you get a free bottle of bubbly for each table booking.  Kids and singles are very welcome too!

Christmas Eve at the club has an awesome reputation. For many years, locals have used the night before Christmas to catch up with family and friends at the club . This year we’ll add a bit of festive cheer to the night with some drinks specials, a DJ playing music on Pickets and the chance to win a share of $3000 CASH – what a great way to wake up on Christmas Day with some money in your pocket!

We will also have a DJ repeat the performance on New Year’s Eve. So, for all of you who are not allowed to make the trek into the City for the fireworks this year due to COVID, get yourselves up to the club and view the fireworks from our balcony areas while enjoying drinks at club prices. What a great way to bring in the New Year.

Entertainment, excitement and hospitality underpins our festive season. Why not be a part of it?
