Be good to see the club invest this money in some long term assets like a 2nd social club in Richmond vis a pub acquisition or a long term lease on a function room at the G for every game played there including rugby, soccer and cricket. Set us up for a steady cashflow for 20 years plus

I agree with this but the pub should be in Richmond and it should be close to Punt Road. The pubs most suited to us as a club would
be 'The Precinct' and 'London Tavern'. Personally The Precinct would be a great pub for our club to get its hands on.

or just build a pub at Punt Rd Oval
Said this when they built that elephant, should of at least made a social area whee the old school could still celebrate and see punt rd, bar pokies tab area for the locals. Game day and non game day a gold mine.

There is no excuse anymore to have a building shed and people locked out at one end of the ground,
Look after the supporters!

I'm pretty sure they can't get that concept over the line

I think that's right. The club would have done it with the redevelopment unfortunately what we have is what is allowed. That's
why we need a pub as close to punt road as possible.

Correct, Melb City Council are our Landlord and we can do anything at Punt Road unless they sign off

But the idea of some sort of club owned venue is great idea

Though, I'd question if it is feasible long term with so many AFL clubs looking at exiting the pokie business over the next few years

We never owned the pub and obviously leased the pokies from that Carlton flog that he took back.

Good idea to buy the pub and send his pokies to the tip though.

Does a good pub need pokies to be successful? I've turned off pubs with pokies, surely a pub can operate profitably without pokies.

Need a 2017 cutting edge pub including traditional high quality grub to be built next to punt rd. Maybe even extend at the Apparel shop end to around behind the goals.

Build it for 1200-1500 drinkers with sportsbar facilities, and an adaptable footprint. rent it our for functions in the off season.

Consult the members and community about what they'd like to see included. bring alot of the museum memorabilia across. use stadium and local sourced heritage related materials for the entrance and internally.

have a presentation before each game by a relevant coach or player

invest the money from merchandise sales ($5-6 million)

id stuffing live there

Name suggestions?
