Cronulla RSL Gets a New Look!

The Cronulla RSL began as a small club, leasing a few rooms in the Cecil Hotel in 1942 and has grown into the iconic waterfront venue we know today. However, one thing has remained the same - their dedication to engaging and supporting the Cronulla and Sutherland Shire community.

With weekly activities, including bingo, Zumba and trivia, and subsidiary clubs and sporting groups, there is something for everyone at The Club. However, if that hasn’t tempted you to The Cronulla RSL, we know what will – the highly anticipated refurbishment and re-opening of their stunning Deck Bar.

Cronulla RSL Deck Bar - New and Improved

Cronulla RSL’s Deck Bar is THE PLACE to be on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night. With Stunning views of South Cronulla Beach – where else would you rather be?

After closing the doors on its panoramic views in May this year, The Deck at Cronulla RSL finally reopened in late July. The fantastic new deck boasts a fresh and vibrant ambience and, as described by The Club itself: “an unparalleled dining experience”. Sounds like just the place to be to us!

With a gorgeous new modern coastal aesthetic, The Deck Bar’s new look has been carefully curated to induce a laid-back atmosphere, complete with soothing colours, natural elements, and plenty of comfortable seating. You won’t be able to beat settling into the weekend with a cocktail and taking in the stunning views.

Cronulla RSL’s CEO, Sue McNeil, has shared her thoughts on the re-opening, stating, “With this renovation, we wanted to create a space that not only showcases our beautiful coastal setting but also provides an exceptional experience for our valued patrons. We cannot wait to welcome everyone back and share the joy of this new chapter."

It certainly seems the newly refurbished deck is going to be the Cronulla hot spot of the spring and summer season.
