Restaurants, Bars, Breweries & Distilleries

Byron Bay is the home of world-class restaurants, with tastes from around the globe to be found in every cosy corner and laneway. Sip on a gin-based Turkish Delight cocktail, while snacking on smashed falafel with garlic yoghurt and shawarma-spiced chicken in the vibrant Middle Eastern surrounds of The Smoking Camel, or for an ocean view and a tastebud sensation head off to the Beach Restaurant on Clarkes.

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 with your amigos in amongst the funky friendly energy and flavours of Miss Margarita’s at the top end of Jonson Street. This restaurant puts a Byron Bay twist on authentic Mexico!

For a cruisy afternoon with 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 day and night into the early hours of the morning, musical euphoria can be found at Woody’s Surf Shack – Byron’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 or Wanadana in Mullum 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. And let’s not forget the delights of Lord Byron Distillery in the Arts & Industrial Estate.

Afficionados of a tipple are spoilt for choice!
