Long-running conflict with council

THE iBar, originally promoted as “Australia's only adult restaurant”, was originally approved by the Tweed Shire Council to be used as a restaurant and bar back in June 2005.

  • Since March 2009, TSC has investigated the iBar's operations, raising questions over increase to an outside deck area, a toilet which did not comply with Australian standards, altered interior layout and new location for the bar.
  • The iBar was found to be complying with its liquor licence according to reports by NSW Gaming Department after Tweed MP Geoff Provest raised the question.
  • TSC gets ready to take the iBar to court. The iBar responds by erecting a sign out the front calling the councillors “a bunch of politically-driven wankers.”
  • TSC alleges iBar owner Warren Armstrong owes more than $31,000 in fees.
  • Mr Armstrong organises a cartoonist to draw a sign depicting Tweed mayor Joan van Lieshout in a sexual pose in May.
