SYDNEY: Sydney publican Max Shepherd, of the Northern Club Hotel [George Street], is providing super deluxe service for patrons. It includes:

  • Films in the bar.
  • Tape recordings of descriptions of past sport events.
  • A pianist and piano-accordionist playing and singing to lounge customers.
  • Chinese and Australian food served by waiters.
  • A fruit drink-serving machine for teetotallers.

Explaining the fruit drink machine, Mr. Shepherd said: “Some of my patrons looked a bit off-colour, so I put it in. It gets plenty of use.
