As the SLV notes state, The Punters Club was a hotel that was established 1987 as a live music venue; it closed down in 2002. It’s now the home of cheap good pizza (weeknights) and brawling bogans (Friday and Saturday nights, usually about 2am as they leave the venue).

    The old Holden, parked in what is now a clearway, seems to have been a fixture of the place, too!
