New Venue for Scarecrow….Flying Saucer Club – Elsternwick
These tickets will sell quickly, don’t leave it to the last minute!!
The Flying Saucer Club was opened in August 2012 with the art deco front dining room (of the Caulfield RSL) doubling as a new music venue. The space was designed to provide an ambience of quality and style befitting the distinction of the building’s founders and when the lights are dimmed and candles lit, it looks and feels like a club from the 1940’s.
With the Caulfield RSL now running their own dining room complete with a new chef and team, there’s never any reason to go hungry before an event at the Flying Saucer Club. The kitchen is open from 6pm to 8:00pm with plenty of delectable dishes on offer so you can match great entertainment with superb food.
