A bit of history
At a meeting of the Richmond-Tweed Trades & Labour Council on 24 June 1954, it was decided to form a club to cater for the interests of the workers of Lismore and district. The club was to be known as the Lismore & District Workers Club. The Trades & Labour Council obtained a weatherboard cottage situated at 199 Keen Street Lismore, about two doors from the present site of the Cool Rocks Cellar opposite St.Paul’s Presbyterian Church. The asking price was three thousand pounds ($6,000.00). The club operated on a social basis for some time and in September 1955 there were sufficient members (slightly more than the required 100) to apply for a Liquor Licence..
A number of renovations over the years have improved the club facilities and today it is Lismore's largest club....a bit sprawling but comfortable nevertheless. Our meal was not too bad either...for a club.

ONE Bar and Nightclub: Local meat market
You wouldn't think it when you walk around the quiet town of a Saturday night but hidden away at the back of Mary Gilhooley's Irish Pub is honestly one of the finest nightclubs in both NSW, QLD and Victoria!
ONE Bar and Nightclub blends current top 40 dance hits, old school favourites, R&B and fast-paced techno beats keeping the very cool, young and hyperactive punters chomping at the bit to dance the night away!
Reasonably priced drinks are served to you by very sexy barstaff at the downstairs floor bar or upstairs in the "smoke-free" lounge bar.
The security is very unforgiving though of anything they deem to be against the spirit of the club and won't hesitate in using "reasonable force" to get their point accross.
Entry is usually about $8.
Dress Code: No special dress code - shirt, long pants and tidy shoes.

Rous Hotel: Super Sports Bar
The Rous Hotel, Lismore, is a very sports orientated bar - especially during winter when the bar sponsored soccer (Richmond Rovers), baseball (Marist Brothers) and netball (Rous) all converge at the end of their respective days play. This creates a very lively, friendly atmosphere which leads to spontaneous bursts of song and dance -coupled with the intense support of whichever team is winning the sport on TV one can be assured of a great nights entertainment!!!
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for "local" celebrities Dover, Windy, Arnott and Custard - buy them a drink and you've made a friend for life!
Dress Code: VERY INFORMAL - everything goes here - bad shirts, thongs (feet), thongs (er,um), hats, track suits and sneakers....
PS - the language here is also quite colourful at the best of times so be warned, haha.
