After being forced to close since March due to the coronavirus the Orange Ex-Services' Club will re-open its doors from 10am next Monday.
CEO Daniel Perkiss said staff were back on deck and workers were flat out upgrading several sections of the club to be ready for the return to business.
Mr Perkiss said they were still awaiting details from the state government to determine how many people they can have in the club.

However, he said the ground floor, including the gaming area and Diggers restaurant, would be open from Monday.
Mr Perkiss said the upstairs area, including The Greenhouse of Orange, would likely re-open later.
He said it was great news for staff and for club members.
"We at the club understand what the organisation means for many people from a social aspect," he said.
"For many people the club is their family and a social outlet."
Mr Perkiss said the staff were also "super-excited" to be back.
He said safety of staff and members would be the club's priority in re-opening.
Social distancing measures will be taken throughout the areas.
There will be a limit of 50 people in the Diggers restaurant and staff have been working to install hand sanitiser areas, spacing out chairs and tables and installing coronavirus warning signs.
Workers are also busy re-wiring the gaming room.
Grounded Electrical owner Chris Scoins said he had eight workers on site to get the work done before Monday.
He said they had been on site for three weeks.
Mr Scoins said he expected they would be working 12 hours a day this week to complete the work.
"We'll be here till 10 o'clock on Monday morning when the club re-opens," he said.
Mr Scoins said it was the most significant upgrade of wiring in the gaming area and the ground floor in about 15 years and the replacement work would last 25 years.
The state government has announced up to 50 people can be in clubs, pubs and restaurants from Monday.
However, it is expected further details would be provided by the government this week in time for the easing of restrictions on June 1.
