Here’s A Sneak Peek Into The New Sands Social Sandgate

Sands Social

Things are shaping up well at the new Sands Social in Sandgate, just in time for its opening this February 2022. 



The new club replaces the former Sandgate RSL Memorial Club, also known as Club Sandgate, on 50 Keogh St, Sandgate and the venue’s major transformation is well underway. The Sands Social promises to be a totally different club and much more like a hospitality venue with a community mindset.

Although the exterior will have a few improvements including landscaping and a fresh lick of paint, much of the makeover will focus on the internal fit-out which will feature a sports bar, lounge, function space and a restaurant.

As far as the menu is concerned, it is still being finalised but expect to get served with classic club meals along with pizza and pasta made fresh on-site. And of course, there will be cocktails, craft beer and a range of Australian wine.

Mr Henderson

Mr Henderson Bar’s interior features elements representing its historic past when Bob Henderson, a bootmaker, operated the space from the 1920s to the 1970s. Preserved are the original brick wall, galvanized iron steel and wooden toolboxes.

The bar serves beers on tap featuring local and international brands plus a great selection of wines and spirits and an impressive list of classic and new cocktails. There is also live music featuring Queensland and Australia’s established and upcoming artists.

Mr Henderson encourages BYO food. So customers can bring in some takeaways from nearby joints and food trucks and enjoy them at the bar.

Good to know: The venue requires no room hire fee if you wish to reserve the space for an intimate gathering, birthday party, or corporate event. Just a minimum bar spend of $25 per head is all you need and your event is good to go.
