An exciting new venue for Burwood!
With high anticipation surrounding its opening CORO 88 has opened its doors in Burwood, revealing a fully redesigned customer-focused 130-seat bar and eatery with a dedicated sports positioning plus a stylishly designed 61-seat café, Nelsons By The Park.
Previously known as the Coronation Club, the established NSW registered club, located directly opposite Burwood’s beautiful landmark park and in walking distance to Westfield Burwood, CORO 88 forms part of an exciting multi-million dollar mixed-use development of the club, which closed its doors to their dedicated membership in 2018 with the promise of an engaging, elevated, yet intimate experience the club has always been renowned for and innately proud of.
Says CEO, Carolynne Williams: “Closing the Coronation Club was a very difficult decision for us as it meant our loyal members would be without ‘their’ club and meeting place. However, it was a move that had to be made, the original building dated from the 60’s, had insufficient parking and we were land locked. Trading had to be revived and renewed for a new customer and era so the only way we could provide our members with a secure future for the club was to demolish and rebuild.
“What has resulted is a modern venue with direct access from the street, 60 car spaces directly under the club, a revived destination for past and present members with an environment activated to bring in the mixed demographic CORO 88 has been designed for. We are truly excited to open our doors and to welcome the Burwood community – and beyond – back!”
The venue sees two food offerings including CORO 88 and Nelsons By The Park, with a fusion of modern-contemporary western and Asian contemporary dining, with flavours backed by both classical and modern cooking techniques.
Menus have been carefully curated by specialist catering consultancy, Great Eats (known for The Fernery, Mosman), to complement the newly renovated venue – a stylish yet warm and welcoming environment with thoroughly delicious food, a strong drinks menu, an 100” TV for avid sports fans to keep up with the highlights that also maintains the ease and welcoming ambience of the club’s history.
Great Eats is dedicated to using fresh Australian produce in support of local food artisans whose products are highlighted on its menu. As a result, the menu sees a culmination of Great Eats’ passion for “creating good food for everyone”. The company allows their new, highly passionate and young team of chefs to express their culinary experience and love of cooking through their food creation resulting in a unique, courageous, yet carefully crafted menu … with a twist on traditional club fare.
Set in a unique open-kitchen environment, must-try menu items include the hibachi-grilled duck breast and crab tagliatelle, the scrumptious beef wagyu sando, as well as bistro classics including battered fish and chips, and the Southern fried chicken burger.
With CORO 88 boasting an impressive elevated menu offering, Nelsons Café – serving cult St Dreux coffee – aims to become a local morning favourite and create a harmonious hub for the community through food, social gatherings, and open interactions for the business community, members, friends and family with the site perfectly located to capture the passing foot traffic of Burwood Road – all of which has been revamped to capture the expanding Burwood community, changing demographic and discerning diner.
CORO 88 and Nelsons By The Park is officially open for service and located at 88 Burwood Road, Burwood, directly opposite Burwood Park and adjacent to the Westfield Shopping Centre and benefits from a general growth in Burwood for both residential and commercial populations.
With FREE dedicated parking for 60 car spaces underneath the building located from Webbs Lane access to the venue is also readily available.
