Loft Byron Bay

It’s a great time to be in Byron: the water is warm, there’s a buzz in town, and if you need to chill, sunset on the rocks at Main Beach still has a wonderful appeal.

Just metres from Main Beach, overlooking the wonderful menagerie of sun-kissed humanity, is Loft where you can sit back in a venue that has the ultimate Byron feel. There is the open terrace, airy interiors, natural elements in furniture and textiles, and the whole place has a welcoming beachside vibe.

The food is European-style modern Australian, with an all-day food and drinks menu – including snacks, smalls, sides, mains, and desserts, and featuring dishes from the Deli & Oyster Bar. Loft Byron Bay has a $35 lunch special every day 12–3pm, with a choice of Loft beer or wine, plus two courses. For example:

Starters choices: oysters; or chicken liver pate served with pickles, sweet onion and croutons; or ceviche – with tomato, watermelon, and purple basil.

Mains choices: crisp battered fish & chips – served with pea puree & tartare; or pan-roasted market fish – served with asparagus, almond & goats cheese; or 300g rump cap – served with fries & red wine jus.

Of course, if you want to step it up a notch, the cocktails are sensational, some featuring local spirits and innovative flavour themes. There’s a very good wine list and a beer menu – they have ten beers on tap, including a choice of local brews, as well as beer from outside the region.

And, of course, the party vibe kicks in later in the evening, and if you do stay late, you can still chill on the rocks overlooking Main Beach in the moonlight.

Loft Byron Bay.
Open every day noon–midnight, and from 11am on Saturday and Sunday for brunch.
