Three years since resurrecting the beloved Sando, Newtown Social Club has announced it will close its doors this April.

An email circulated from Newtown Social Club representative Sally Mather dated today, Wednesday January 25, has confirmed the sad news.


In the email, the Newtown Social Club owners say: "Whilst the live music part of the business was a resounding success, the current regulatory climate in Sydney and the inherent challenges therein have made it unsustainable."
