During summer, there is live entertainment on hand every Friday evening on our spacious beach facing deck in the form of ‘Fabulous Fridays’. Offering great live music, champagne and oysters, and of course, the beautiful Brighton sunset.
Upstairs is our Members’ Bar as well as our brilliant Bayview room which offers stunning views of Port Philip Bay and is available for private functions and events, such as weddings, christenings and corporate conferences.
