Greenbank RSL

Green Bank RSL:

Greenbank RSL, one of the most successful clubs in Queensland with over 70,000 members, recently completed a $4.5m extension that included provision for a very popular outdoor smoking deck. Designed by Brand + Slater, the deck features dark timber battened walls and ceiling panels, timber dry bars, coconut-shell lacquered tables and comfortable chocolate wicker furniture, all of which gives the space an exclusive five star resort-style atmosphere. Both the Star Bar and the new gaming room open out on to this sophisticated outdoor smoking retreat and the club owners have found that the area gets quite crowded on a weekend and so a roof terrace extension is now planned for 2008.“It’s got to the point where another area for smokers is required and hence the roof terrace,” explained Luis Nheu, Director of Interior Design at Brand + Slater. “This area will be a whole new bar experience; a lounge bar accessible via a glass lift in reception. The roof is three storeys up and offers a stunning vista. Fortunately the Club was designed from day one to extend to the roof.”The smoking laws were enforced a year ago in Queensland and Brand + Slater had noticed a definite surge in business prior to this.“We found that the clubs in Queensland were very organised when it came to catering for smokers and most were ready by the time the new laws took effect,” commented Luis.
