Twin Towns on the go with $3.9m refurbishment
TWEED Heads' biggest club, Twin Towns, has lodged a development application for a $3.9 million internal and external refurbishment of level one.
It is in addition to the $22 million worth of works carried out on this storey last year.
The latest proposed work for the last one-third of floor one, if approved by Tweed Shire Council, will "improve" the fit-out and configuration of the Images Gaming area and the entry and bar area of the Orient Restaurant on the Wharf St club's southern side.
The layout of the gaming area will be reconfigured, the bar area re-located and provided with a new fit-out and interior finishes.
But there will be no increase in the number of gaming machines.
A new automatic teller machine and eftpos area is to be constructed to the west of the lift core in the "Millennium Tower".
The Orient Restaurant's entry will have a new fit-out and the stairs re-constructed, and the bar refurbished. External work will include the removal of a small smokers' balcony from the eastern side of the Millennium Tower and conversion of an outdoor balcony area into a garden bed. Last year work was carried out on floor one to create a new bar, lounge and entertainment area and outdoor terrace.
An exta round of work carried out on level three this year to create a dedicated function and convention area is expected to be completed by the end of November.
Twin Towns Services Club group services manager Rod Pain said it would bring the total number of function areas in the club to 10.
One of these spaces - the Horizons Room - will also be used as a dining outlet a couple of nights a week bringing the overall number of dining options at the club to seven.
Mr Pain said it was important for clubs to keep refreshing their offerings.
"It's all about trying to provide new facilities and make it interesting for members and guests and provide them with new options," he said.
The club has five levels and 43,000 members.
