The Three Blue Ducks take over La La Land

The team behind Three Blue Ducks has taken over popular Byron Bay nightclub La La Land and will relaunch the venue in September, with a brand-new concept to their existing Ducks brand. This will be the fifth venue run by co-owners Darren Robertson, Mark LaBrooy, Jeff Bennett, Sam Reid and Chris Sorrel.

The yet-to-be-named venue will incorporate the Three Blue Ducks’ ethos for sustainability and ethically produced food and will include craft beer, eclectic cocktails and a small food element.

Pattern Studios will be taking care of the venue’s design elements, alongside Dominic Finlay-Jones Architects. Initially it will operate only in the evenings, with daytime food offerings beginning once new kitchen facilities are in place, in 2019.

Says Jeff Bennett, ‘This is a really exciting new concept for the boys and me to be working on. The new venue is going to be fairly different from The Ducks venues in terms of a restaurant space; however, we’ll be sticking to our ethos around the food and beverage offering.’

Byron local Adam Drage will oversee the venue, but the team is looking for a highly experienced bar manager and other qualified staff.
