Club Totem is located in Balgowlah just up the road from Manly on Sydney's northern beaches adjacent to the Stockland Shopping Village & residential development in Condamine Street.  The Club was formerly known as Manly Warringah Masonic Club which was part of Balgowlah’s old Totem Shopping Centre.

The Club is set over 3 levels with stair and lift access to all levels.  The entry foyer is on Condamine Street.  Level 2 has a Lounge & Sports Bar with a great range of tap and bottled beer, quality wines, a great selection of cocktails, tea/coffee and cakes.  Level 3 is where you will find our 2 function rooms along with the Club's restaurant and bar - Forty Baskets.

We have 2 function rooms, a large one and a smaller one.  The wall between them can be pushed back to make 1 large function room.  The rooms have some natural lighting and a small balcony off the smaller room.  There is direct access to the bar from the larger function room.  The rooms can be setup for meetings, conferences or party functions.  We have equipment on site that can be hired for your meeting/function and the rooms can to decorated/setup to suit your meeting/function.  There is also an informal area on Level 2 that can be booked for smaller informal occasions and of course tables can be booked in the restaurant for smaller events.

Each level has direct access via the lift from the blue level of the Stockland car park (next to row B on the blue level, south eastern corner) or the club's Condamine Street entrance.

Please see below guide for our room hire but give us a call if you have a particular requirement and we can help you with your request.

"We celebrated Dad's 80th birthday celebration on Friday 19th July at Club Totem. This letter is sent to you as an expression of our sincere appreciation for all of your efforts in the preparation and planning of our special event.  The service was excellent, the food was fantastic - and everyone present commented on the high standard of the meal - and the set-up of the room was beautiful.  We are so pleased that we were able to enjoy Dad's special birthday at Club Totem, and we will highly recommend it for a place to gather and celebrate in the future.  Well done and once again, thank you!" K. Stewart

"Just a quick note to thank you for help in arranging the event last Sat night.  We arrived at 6.30 and left around 10pm.  The evening went very smoothly with the 38 guests having a wonderful time.  The food was delicious – the positioning of the serving tables was a great idea.  The table settings worked nicely.  The facilities comfortable.  The technology worked well.  The staff were obliging – bringing out the desert and champagne worked well.  The price was great and the payment method easy.  The event showed Totem in a very good light with many saying they will be back. Thanks again for a 10/10/ night."  G. Haddrick

"We would like to thank you very much for your organization for our 90th birthday party.  The girls attending to our guests were very polite and helpful - a big thank you to them.  So many people have phoned & commented what a nice venue and they also enjoyed the food - thank you to the chef and his helpers.  We would gladly recommend Club Totem to anyone thinking of a venue for a function.  Thanks again."  H.
