Club Dress Code

The Canberra Southern Cross Club has an enviable reputation for service, dress and behaviour standards. It is a quality Club of which members can be proud.

The spirit of members is a big reason why our Club is so popular. Our rules and regulations are there to reinforce that spirit and to benefit us all. That is why we have dress regulations, to meet our members’ expectations of comfort, neatness, cleanliness and appearance.

Our dress regulations are based on commonly accepted standards of dress. As fashions and standards do change over time, dress requirements are interpreted in a spirit of goodwill and common sense.

These guidelines are provided as a guide to the expected standard of dress for patrons when inside the dining areas of the Southern Cross Club.

Dress Standards

The overall expectation is consistent with a clean, tidy and non-offensive dress standard and can be described as neat / smart casual.

Irrespective of differing views on what constitutes neat / smart casual,  in every circumstance, the Venue Supervisor’s decision is final.
