Every Thursday night, club members and their families are warmly invited to join us at the new clubhouse for drinks and nibbles. Trader’s Bar opens at 7:30pm as crews return from their row. The masters sausage sizzle is now gaining a well earned reputation as the best recovery food in Melbourne

 

On the first Thursday of every month, all Mercantile rowers and members are invited to the clubhouse for a friendly and relaxed row in a club boat then drinks and BBQ at Trader’s Bar. Make sure you are at the boathouse by 6pm with your Mercs zootie in hand!
