The Oakleigh Carnegie RSL are proud to be a Licensedonly, non-gaming RSL Sub Branch and Community club in Drummond Street Oakleigh, surrounded by parkland and sporting facilities.

The Oakleigh RSL has a long tradition of supporting Live music and community events as well as RSL specific events. We pride ourselves on offering a warm and friendly environment, quality food and entertainment in our newly renovated Memorial Hall, which also includes top of the range Digital sound and audio-visual equipment. Entertainment in the venue dates back to the 50s and 60s and more recently as the Caravan Music Club and The Pearl Oakleigh and is up and running again as the Oakleigh Lounge. It is now managed by Blair Burt, who has a long standing involvement in the music industry, ABC TV and SBS radio as an audio engineer/ producer, and working with bands like Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows, Lou Reed, Frank Sinatra, Vince Jones, The Models and is now bringing his experience and talent to the Oakleigh Lounge. We are creating a venue where you can catch up with friends and enjoy a drink and a meal in the Bistro and bit of a boogie on the dance floor. Friday and Saturdays feature a rang of styles from Soul Sacrifice (Santana Tribute Show), Wendy Stapleton (Dusty Springfield Show), Raw Brit 60s hard rock and Rebecca O’Connor Simply the Best (Tina Turner Show). Sunday are a more relaxed vibe in the Beer Garden or Members Lounge, featuring Blue’s, Jazz and Swing-R’n’B. Sunday sessions at the Oakleigh Lounge are the perfect way to wind down and enjoy the music, a drink and quality and affordable dining in Jenny’s Bistro offering traditional and Asian cuisine. The Oakleigh Carnegie RSL is proud to continue the traditions set by our forefathers in providing a place and support for veterans and their families, while being an integral part of our local community and regularly supporting local organisations and charities.
