The Patch, Tomakin

The Patch, originally known as The Tomakin Sports & Social Club, has undergone extensive improvements and a name change by Tully Heard.

Tully Heard enlisted the design prowess of Pony Design Co, who collaborated previously to establish The Growers, Shoalhaven. The Tomakin Sports & Social Club, having served the community as a gathering place during the Eurobodalla Shire bushfires in late 2019, was due for a well-deserved refresh. Tully Heard envisioned The Patch as a family-friendly modern contemporary dining experience featuring a large alfresco overlooking the nearby Tomaga River. Mammoth Projects completed the refurbishments in late December, 2021, with John Tully looking ‘forward to seeing the venue thrive and become a whole community space, after the traumas of the past few years on the South Coast – especially in the Tomakin area.’

Locals praised the venue for having a “great atmosphere” that “punches well above its weight”. The Patch has already demonstrated that it is “a real asset to the area and guaranteed to become a destination venue on the well worn South Coast trail,” it was further said.

Coro 88 Club

Coro 88 is a modern contemporary sports bar and eatery serving a fusion of Western and Asian flavours blending modern and traditional techniques.

Formerly known as the Coronation Club, the original venue closed its doors in 2018 to undergo a full demolish and rebuild to update the design and layout of the facility from the 1960s to the 2020s. Coro 88 reopened in early 2021 with a brand new bar, dining area, and cafe to accommodate over 190 seats. Key to the venue’s updated design were natural timbers, earthy toned vinyl, textured stone, warm lighting and abundant greenery. The new facilities were immediately embraced by members with guests saying “I loved the decor; it really had a welcoming vibe”.
