Byron’s first and only organic natural wine bar has new owners at the helm. The cosy little enclave in Bay Lane is being reinvigorated with fresh energy from local music producer and entrepreneur, Grant Weatherburn, and his photographer partner, Jodi Plumbley. ‘We have always loved the vibe of Supernatural – right back from it’s original owners. When the purchase opportunity came up we wanted to make sure it was kept in local hands and are excited for the new adventure!’ Grant explained. 

With their extensive travels they have always loved the feeling that Supernatural gives of being ‘a world away’. You can sit at the bar and feel like you’re tucked away in Paris or Barcelona depending on the playlist of the day!

‘I love the escapism [that] a vibe and setting can bring… With overseas travel restricted at the moment we are going to concentrate on bringing some special events to Supernatural, which will make you feel like you’ve taken a quick trip overseas for the evening!’ Jodi said.

The operations side of the business will fall into the trusted and capable hands of Paige Aubort. Hailing from Sydney, with a decade-long career in the Australian hospitality community. She is most comfortable when working the floor, sharing her favourite wines with the masses, and figuring out how to make everyone’s experience at the bar as warm and memorable as possible.

It’s apparent from the get go, that Paige adores her team at Supernatural, and does everything in her power to make sure they feel supported, ‘pushed’ and nurtured.

‘It truly feels like such a privilege to be working for, and with, everyone at Supernatural. Watching the team come together on any given night, is a thing of beauty. Where one person starts, another team member is sure to follow to finish the job. A whirling, entwining performance that is a sight to be seen. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!’

Supernatural’s well-rounded and adventurous wine list is curated by bar manager and natural wine aficionado, Scott McGarry. After one chat with Scotty his passion and knowledge of wine is evident – and exciting. A winemaker himself, Scott knows the ins and outs and serves up fascinating insights along with the drops to tantalise your palate.

Head Chef Zac Llewellyn hails from the Northern Rivers, and began training as a chef at age 16. With ten years cheffing under his belt, he has acquired an impressive resume. When pushed to choose, he is equal parts proud of his time working in the belly of the beast at Shelter, La Casita, and Roadhouse, running his own kitchen in Japan, and co-owning a curry pop-up during the 2020 lockdown period.

Zac’s approach to food is simple; he wants the people who taste his food to love it so much that they are desperate to get their hands on the recipe. He cooks with sincerity, feeling and freedom in mind, making sure he often veers off the traditional/trodden path. This ultimately results in weekly menus that are mouth-watering and exciting.

Whether it’s a mulled wine to warm up, a sexy cocktail with friends, or a wine tasting adventure, Supernatural has you covered. Open Sunday, Tuesday–Thursday, 5–10pm (daily happy hour from 5pm) and 4–10pm on Friday and Saturday.
