Amaretto Sour at Loft tastes as good as it looks.

A recent trip to see friends on the Gold Coast sharpened my appreciation for just how lucky we in Byron. If you like Irish pubs, Bavarian restaurants and food courts try the Goldie: ‘How good is it?’, as our PM might say, philausophically.

Thank goodness in Byron I can just wander off the Main Beach and soak up the Byron vibe above Jonson St, with a bit of a sea breeze and a beer, or a cocktail like the Amaretto Sour, in the stylish and very relaxed interior of a place like Loft Byron Bay.

If you were on holidays it would be the perfect place to settle in for the afternoon and sample the really excellent cocktail and wine list. As it was, I contented myself with the Spring Pea Risotto – mint pesto, Byron Bay mozzarella and garlic croutons this time. But I’ll be back!

  1. Another blatant paid for review in the echo. The loft should be in Ibiza(including Britt’s with their Trump tans). Another shallow up market joint for the Instagram tools that now flourish in Byron. The Gold Coast is full joints like this, you must not have been there before Simon. I know the Echo needs revenue but come on this is pathetic.

    • Yeah!, I probably raise the average age, halve the average income and ruin a few Insta shots each time I go out in Byron, but I’m not sure a Trump makeover would help. I’ve probably only been to the Gold Coast 20 times in the last 25 years, but I was surprised how little I enjoyed the Broadbeach end last week compared to Byron, and I’ve always thought the Surfers end was worse! I spend my own money when I eat out, I’d never say I enjoyed something if I didn’t – I’ve always enjoyed Loft.

  2. Obviously, it sounds like the type of place you’d fit in. I can totally see you wearing your linen shirt and clubmasters while bopping along to a Cafe del Mar album. Quick question, when did the echo decide to begin the transition from a not for profit, left wing publication that represented locals to a tourism advertisement guide? I’m sure that’s what Nicholas Shand was always aiming to achieve.

    Why not do articles that actually question issues that effect locals? Overdevelopment, capping tourism or calling out the trust’s that come into our shire to buy houses to turn them for a profit only to be bought by rich outsiders to be turned into Airbnb’s. Bob Maughan had to write his own letter to get his story published. Isn’t a rate paying local who has lived in Byron for 40 years getting screwed over interesting enough for the echo? Or too controversial? I know you’ve been at the echo for a long time and you know the echo is changing. Now more than ever Byron shire needs this paper. Stop becoming like ever other tabloid around here ffs.

    • Answer to your “quick question” : when the real estate values went up.
      What did you think would happen to Byron and all about it?

      • True. I suppose I am just naive enough to think that we live in a democracy and not a plutocracy. It is hard to tell theses days where Byron Shire Council ends and the Byron Chamber of Commerce begins.
