Balcony Bar & Oyster Co - Honeywed

Set in one of the town’s few remaining heritage buildings, Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. is practically a Byron institution, with most of us having enjoyed more than our fair share of sunset cocktails, lavish breakfasts and people watching on its’ iconic balcony over the years. And with its enviable position, stylish beach house vibes and plethora of delicious dining (and drinking) options, it’s easy to see why!

Recently changing hands to the powerful Sydney Collective, who’ve established a reputable portfolio of venues such as Beachside Dojo and Watson’s Bay Hotel, the Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. has undergone some seriously stylish renovations, a complete menu overhaul and the introduction of some very impressive event options which has secured Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. as an exciting new hot spot for Byron Bay weddings and associated events such as rehearsal dinners, hens and bucks events and even recovery brunches…

Making use of locally sourced ingredients and sustainable produce is true to Executive Chef Connolly’s ethos that the less you do with food, the better it tastes. Which you’ll quickly agree with once you’ve experienced their fresh selection of seafood. Because really, is it even possible to beat oysters and cocktails on a warm afternoon?
