Restaurants, Bars, Breweries & Distilleries

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 and next-level grazing food head up to Loft Byron Bay (pictured above).  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? Miss Margarita at the top end of Jonson Street 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 either Woody’s Surf Shack or Lovers Lane, two of Byron’s ultimate late night dancefloors …

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!
