Living in the Northern Rivers for 21 years, Craig Watson is better known for his talents as a pharmacist than a restauranteur, but all that is changing with the opening of Krill Bar in Lennox Head.

Krill first opened in March this year but, like most social venues, their doors were forced to close a week later owing to the COVID-19 lockdown. They opened up again in early June, and haven’t looked back.

Manager, Lillie Jones-Meader, says Krill is terrific. ‘I think we are one of the best bars in Lennox. We are able to provide the local community with the experience of fantastic service and great cocktails. I love to see satisfied happy customers who leave with a smile on their face and I love that we have the ability to support the local community.’

COVID was hard on a lot of new businesses. ‘We were forced to shut down during the lockdown period,’ said Lillie. ‘We opened with a fresh COVID Safe environment and we changed the number of people we could fit in the venue – we try to keep all tables 1.5m apart where possible. We are still under covid restrictions and our cleaning schedule has been amplified to ensure that the entire venue is COVID Safe.’ Lillie says everyone at Krill is enjoying being back on deck. ‘We are happy to be welcoming more people into our amazing venue – and they are loving our daily happy hour!’

Krill Bar is open Thursday to Sunday at 47 Ballina St, Lennox Head.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
