ANZAC Lounge, Petone Working Men's Club

The ANZAC Lounge is a newly refurbished hospitality/events venue, located on the first floor of the Petone Club.  The lounge is home to the Lower Hutt Return Services Association (LHRSA) who occupy the space during regular club nights, and special events. The ANZAC Lounge also operates as an independent Function Facility hosting public meetings, conferences, wedding receptions, dance clubs and music events.

Within the ANZAC lounge there are three keys spaces, each positioned around the refurbished central bar.  The Conference Space and Dance Floor are designed to accommodate large groups in a conference, dining, dancing and performance setting.  Acoustics were an important factor in selecting the finishing materials, so Shaw Pacific carpet tiles were chosen for the conference space, and Decotile luxury vinyl tile for the dance floor / dining area. 

The Quiet Lounge is tucked away behind the bar.  Red and green is the predominant colour scheme, reflecting the theme of the RSA's military heritage that is on display here.  Red hexagons were chosen for both the bar front and the carpet tiles on the floor of the Lounge, chosen as a representation of the Flanders Poppy.
