Community spirit, lively events and family-friendly fun. There’s never a dull day at Club Mudgee, the region’s social & community hub.
On Mortimer Street, Club Mudgee stands as a testament to Mudgee’s community spirit. For over 70 years, it has been a place where Mudgee residents gather to share laughter, camaraderie,and good times. This venue has become much more than just a club; it’s a hub where locals forge connections or socialise.
Club Mudgee’s support transcends the venue itself, too. Over the years, the club has supported into a multitude of not-for-profit community groups, sporting organisations, and charities through ClubGrants. This initiative, one of Australia's most substantial grant programs, channels vital funds towards worthy causes across New South Wales annually.
Walking along Mortimer Street in the heart of Mudgee, you won’t miss the impressive venue. Club Mudgee houses a Café, Bistro, Sports Bar & Members lounges, function spaces, and a sun-drenched outdoor garden complete with a children’s play area.
As far as Club schedules go, Club Mudgee’s ‘What’s on’ calendar is as packed as they get. From big celebrations – think the Melbourne Cup Day – to weekly get-togethers and annual big-ticket events, there’s always something to make you smile on Club Mudgee’s event list.
Gather your crew for an evening of brain-teasing trivia, try your hand at poker, or join in the lively morning Bingo, running every weekday excluding Wednesdays.
Sport more your thing? Try your hand at Lawn Bowls on the Clubs 2 outdoor greens or watch on Mudgee’s largest TV screen in the Sports Bar.
Among these cherished regular events, Club Mudgee hosts the Mudgee Craft Beer and Cider Festival. The festival, which celebrated its fourth year running earlier in March, brings some of Australia’s best craft breweries and their makers to the centre of Mudgee, giving beer-loving locals and visitors a chance to sample the very best brews. Held on the club’s lawns, the festival sees live music, great food and beer come together in the centre of the region.
Sit down for a leisurely coffee in the Café serving up ethically sourced & sustainable Pablo & Rusty’s coffee or if your appetite is talking, treat yourself to one of the cafe’s delicious baked goods, from gooey cake to pies and fresh sandwiches. In the summer, don’t miss the Ice Cream Bar, serving a wide range of classic flavours and moreish milkshakes. Open seven days a week from 9:00 am, you can always count on the Cafe for your caffeine (or cake) fix.
If you’re looking for a large lunch or a hearty dinner, Club Mudgee’s Bistro, 99 on Mortimer, has a reputation for cooking up whopping portions at friendly prices. The kitchen is run by Head Chef Stefano, who serves up family favourites from chicken schnitzels to pasta, steaks, and burgers. Enjoy it amid the rustic wine bar dining area or on a sunny day, enjoy the serenity on the outside balcony. Look out for weekly specials, including Steak night and Schnitzel night.
When it’s time to cheer on your favourite team, you can’t beat the atmosphere at Club Mudgee’s Hub Sports Bar, a new addition to the club since its recent renovations.
Open seven days a week, ‘The Big Screen’ – the bar’s impressive four-metre LED screen – is always primed for kick-off. The Hub’s beer selection rivals many in Mudgee, pouring 20 tap favourites among local Central West wines, spirits, and happy hour specials. When you’re not watching sports, catch up with friends in a stylish booth or try your luck at a game of pool, snooker or darts. The BIG screen has become a favourite for all sports fans with the screening of major events from both mens & womens sporting codes taking centre stage, like the Matilda’s World Cup campaign, which saw every game played LIVE & LOUD on the big screen delighting locals & inspiring a new generation of sports fans.
With renovations still underway, members can look forward to a brand-new, dynamic member’s lounge area. This expansive space, with a capacity to accommodate 150 members, stands as a testament to Club Mudgee's commitment to providing a space that reflects the evolving needs and aspirations of its community.
According to John O’Neil of Lion Brewery, Club Mudgee has become “One of the best venues I think we’ll see on this side of the mountains”.
