Can we pop in for a drink?

Yes, but you will still need to make a booking, walk ins are welcome, but will be limited  

How many people can we have in our booking?

At the moment you can have a maximum of 10 people per booking, if you have more you will be split over two tables, and social distancing will apply between the two tables.  

How long can we stay?

We allow for up to 2 x hours per booking which is plenty of time for a meal and a few drinks with friends! If you’d like to stay a bit longer please check with our wait staff on the day and we’ll do our best to accommodate.  

Can we still pay with cash?

Our preferred payment is contactless card payment, please note, our ATMs are currently not in service.  

What we are doing to create safe and hygienic venues?

Northcote Social Club has been deep cleaned, sanitised and reset in line with the Victorian Government Hospitality Guidelines, with physical distancing between tables, lots of handwashing stations and table service so you don’t have to wait in line at the bars.  

Will you take our details on entry?

Yes, we are required to take your details for contact tracing, they will be kept safely for 28 days and not used for any other purposes  

Will you have the footy on?

Yes! We will be showing the footy where we can.  Please let us know at the time of booking if you would like to be near a screen but please be reminded that bookings are only for 2 hours so we will have to work around that time frame the best we can until the restrictions lift further.  

What else do I need to do?

Wash your hands regularly, maintain social distancing, don’t come in if you feel unwell and have a bloody good time!  

When will music be back!?
