Since opening in 2015, The Bolt Hole has continued to evolve and grow: they want guests to enjoy a good time every time! Now open till 2am, the bar has ramped up its exclusive spirits portfolio to over 300. The bar has a strong focus on whisky and gin with vintage, rare, and exclusive bottles lining the extensive back bar. The whisky cabinet forms a whisky den, which is perfect for sipping on the good stuff and perusing the boutique and international offerings.
The Bolt Hole is gaining further recognition in the world of craft cocktail making with one of their bartenders (Shane Crosland) going through to the Australian finals of the Diageo World Class Cocktail Competition 2019. This is the world’s biggest and most recognised cocktail competition. The Bolt Hole was also nominated for Best Regional Bar at the Australian Bar Awards.
The team at The Bolt Hole exude confidence and swagger complemented with a knack for finding the right match for an indecisive palate. They have just launched a new signature cocktail menu that is influenced by local and seasonal ingredients – all with fun names like the Jean Claude Pan Dan and Pocket Rocket (Tanqueray Gin, clarified pineapple, coconut syrup, rocket puree, lime, celery bitters, and Crème De Violette Sherbet). As a winter treat, The Bolt Hole is offering 25 per cent off their newly crafted cocktail menu every Wednesday and Thursday throughout July.
The Bolt Hole, upstairs at the beach end of Fletcher St is a dimly lit refuge from Byron’s sun-dazed, crowded streets. Green Chesterfields, handmade furniture, antique light fittings, designer bathrooms, and a tarnished copper bar supported by recycled timber are just some of the highlights.
Bar snacks are available throughout the evening with smokehouse barbecue and other treats available for events and parties. The Bolt Hole is used regularly in the day for exclusive events, wedding recovery parties, film shoots, and cocktail masterclasses.
