JUJU Roving Bar: Black Party launch

Latest News

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Byron’s Back

‘Byron’s dead’. That’s the statement that I often hear. Or ‘I never go there anymore it’s lost’ or ‘Byron died years ago’. It always makes me feel a bit sad and defensive. I have such a love for this place, although I curse it when I get stuck in snaking traffic at 8am on a weekday morning or I can’t find a park near where I am going.

Could pyrolysis help solve the plastics crisis?

Philippe Dupuy from the Lismore Environment Centre thinks there is a role for pyrolysis technology in dealing with the global plastic waste dilemma, with new technology making it possible to turn plastic waste into a useful resource.

Monique Guterres is always looking for something new, and her latest venture JUJU Byron, a fully licensed roving bar business, is an innovative and exciting addition to the events industry in Byron Bay.

Monique is the creator of longstanding local catering businesses Seaweed Cuisine and Hungry Like The Wolf, with a longstanding commitment to provenance in produce and services as well as staffing dating back to when quality local produce, modern share-plate menus, and fine-dining service were mostly the moist-eyed dreams of chefs. 

Monique says the events industry is a great training ground for staff, including her own children! ‘I concentrate on building confidence and the ability to think for yourself,’ she says, ‘and some of our staff have gone on to work in world-renowned hotels. I’m also a believer in collaboration in events and catering, and I’ll be looking to do that with JUJU Byron.’ 

Monique has participated in many local hospitality showcase events, but she is now in a leading role as creative director of the Chef’s Lunch Fire and Forage at Bangalow’s upcoming Sample Food Festival 2019.

Which brings us to The Black Party; at what Monique calls Australia’s most underrated seaside venue, the Byron Bay Surf Club. The Black Party, the official launch of JUJU Byron, will be an evening of canapés, cocktails, and dancing with a black mysto sophisto dress code, and promises to be a super fun night. 

With so many local talented creatives in one space it’s in the style of the old industry parties that once blazed Byron.

With JUJU signature cocktail on arrival, oyster bar and canapés by Seaweed Cuisine, and fully operating JUJU bar, guests will have all they need to hit the dance floor to the funk soul grooves of DJ Abel El Toro. Or lounge around on the lavish soft furnishings supplied by Frank & Joy. Styling is by The Neon Rebel, florals by The French Petal, lighting by North Coast Events, and plants from Northern Rivers Hire.

The bar will stock Stone & Wood beer and fine wines. Cocktails will feature organic Tintenbar Distillery gin, vodka, and whisky plus interesting infusions of native botanicals such as The Native Gypsy, with native berries and myrtles, and the unique Kelp and Ginger Toddy, with whisky, kelp, and spice. 

This is a one-off event, so come and be part of the fun.
