Bar Service

Club Lennox is the on-premises licensee for the Lennox Head Cultural Centre. This means that all alcohol service is organised in liaison with Club Lennox, not Ballina Shire Council.

Please note that the on-premises licensee (Club Lennox) is required to provide a ratio of one security staff member for every 100 guests in attendance. This cost, and alcohol service charges, are negotiated directly between Club Lennox and the hirer. This is separate to venue hire fees charged by Ballina Shire Council Community Spaces.

Club Lennox is also responsible for providing catering, as part of the bar service. For more information visit
