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.

Since declaring her interest in running for Lismore Council, local woman Sally Flannery has been subjected to sustained attacks, both online and upon her property.

What could be more ‘Byron’ than Woody’s luxurious, relaxed vibe?

A tricky year of health public restrictions meant that Woody’s 10th birthday party was a little low key, but the milestone delivered a great sense of pride and achievement for this awesome venue that is a permanent fixture in Byron Bay’s nightlife.

After a decade the legendary Big Wednesday Surfboard Giveaway is still going strong, open to anyone who makes a purchase on a Wednesday night – you go into the draw to win a brand new premium surfboard from Onboard Store.

Since last year’s trickiness, Woody’s have had a strict COVID Safe policy that they are very proud of, but they are pleased that the recent relaxation of some public health restrictions, means that people can again enjoy a drink standing up, and with an extensive drinks menu that includes top-shelf cocktails, craft beer, and Australian and New Zealand wines, there are plenty of enticing options.

Although dancing isn’t currently allowed, Woody’s still have live DJs every night until late, as well as a pool table, foosball table and Pacman to keep the fun flowing. You don’t need to book, and walk-ins are welcome all night, but the venue does have a capacity limit – so getting yourself and your mates in early will help you get a cozy spot in their stunning backroom.

Woody’s also caters for birthdays, Hen and Stag nights and work parties – it’s also just about perfect for a post-wedding bash – they’ve got everything covered.

The Back Of The Shack is a purpose-built space available for exclusive hire for a truly memorable good time. This part of the venue is a private area that will see you enjoying your own dedicated bar and staff member – and the same stylish, surfy surroundings Woody’s is known for. Woody’s has their extensive drinks menu available online so you can check out the great options before you plan your party; what’s more, the team is very happy to create a custom package for your event, just give them a shout.

Woody’s is at The Plaza on Jonson Street and is open seven days – Monday to Saturday 8pm–3am and Sundays from 8pm until midnight.
