History[edit | edit source]

In September 1876 the publican was charged for allowing dancing:

John Looney, landlord of the Victoria hotel, at Gong Gong, was charged by Constable Doyle with permitting dancing to be carried on in a house adjoining his licensed house. It appears that the ground on which the dancing saloon is built was let to Looney, who in turn sub let it to Patrick Clark. The bench were of opinion that Looney was to be held responsible for the control over the dancing saloon; but as he promised to stop the dancing for the future, or remove the building, the case was adjourned for a fortnight in order to give him time to carry out his promises.[1]
