Restaurants, Bars & Breweries
Byron Bay is the home of world-class tapas restaurants, with tastes from around the globe to be found in every cosy corner and laneway. Dip into some Mediterranean entrees among the Greek style, all-white walls of the Mez Club, or for a creative cocktail, pull up a stool at St Elmo Dining Room & Bar. Don’t miss the view and the tastebud sensations found at Beach Restaurant either.
Intrepid diners can take the Byron Bay Solar Train to North Byron where chilled, poolside cocktails await at the luxurious Elements of Byron – or Argentinian influenced delights will tempt at Barrio restaurant.
What could be better than nachos and a margarita in a bustling atmosphere with your amigos? El Camino up the Palace Cinema end of Jonson Street puts a Byron Bay twist on authentic Mexico!
For a cruisy afternoon, well spent in flip flops, with a beer in hand as you watch the Byron Bay sun melt into the horizon, the Beach Hotel will deliver the perfect combination of soulful tunes and easygoing vibes.
For those wishing to carry their Byron Bay bliss right into the early hours of the morning, Cheeky Monkeys has delivered tabletop dance parties and colourful drinks for well over 15 years and isn’t stopping now! Further dancefloor euphoria can be found at Woody’s Surf Shack, Byron Bay’s ultimate late night dancefloor..
A visit to the Bay wouldn’t be complete without a stop off at one of our world class breweries and distilleries. Beer lovers should head to Stone & Wood and the Byron Bay Brewery for a tasting paddle and tour. Further afield and a short drive from town there’s the home of Brookie’s gin – Cape Byron Distillery. For those fans of ink gin, head to the Husk Distillery out at Tumbulgum. Afficionados of a tipple are spoilt for choice!
