Construction has begun at Wenty Leagues as the club works towards becoming an entertainment hub for its members and wider community.
“Our goal is to make Wenty a home away from home for our members and guests, by evolving into an all-encompassing place for our community to come together and enjoy our offerings,” Wenty Leagues Club CEO Glenn Kovacs told Club Management.
As part of the transformation plans, the club’s cafe area, the Wenty Cafe and Lounge, will be completely refreshed with an open-plan design that will create a lighter and brighter feeling, and feature additional seating that will provide various options and areas for patrons to gather and socialise.
During the build, Wenty Cafe has been temporarily relocated to the club’s flagship CHAR restaurant, which has been renamed The Cafe. In its temporary format, the club has refreshed the cafe menu with the addition of fresh juices, poke bowls and a range of gluten-free and vegetarian options.
The transformation will also see the Wenty Stage be completely rebuilt, with a larger dance floor, to accommodate more live performances and entertainment.
Wenty Leagues said a key priority for this project will be to improve the club’s accessibility, particularly the club’s Starlight Room, which hosts a range of weekly activities for patrons who are often mobile or visually impaired. Additional ramps will be introduced as a result.
“We are making sure there’s an easy way for mobility impaired patrons to get to the Starlight Room and access is no longer a challenge for them,” Kovacs continued.
“They’ll be able to come in, have a good time and know they’re being looked after.”
Renovations are slated to be completed by May 2025.
The western Sydney club has been updating its venue since 2018. Completing their $120 million master plan in 2020, the club has introduced The Plaza, its food and beverage dining precinct that also features a kids area and dessert bar; a multi-storey carpark; new-look foyer and reception area; and a new multi-purpose function space on level one.
Ian McCann, president of Wenty Leagues Club, expressed his excitement about the club’s next phase.
“This project is a testament to our commitment to creating a remarkable entertainment destination. We are dedicated to enhancing the member and guest experience and are eager to continue to engage the community throughout the project, whilst maintaining our regular activities,” he said.
