THE Olive Branch Lounge Bar and Restaurant is expecting a solid turn-out on New Year's Eve to kick off an evening of celebrations.

Spokesman Kieran Toohey said, "People come and celebrate at the Olive Branch because of the safety and comfort aspects and to indulge in the award winning food along with the prompt bar service.

"They won't have to fight their way to the bar. We're offering no booking fees or a cover charge to give patrons flexibility with their night.

"The restaurant is filling up, but there are still tables available and while bookings are preferred, walk-ins will be served late into the evening," he said.

Popular local band Mick and G will be playing throughout the night and will bring in the countdown to 2015.
