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…

Teaming with award-winning Executive Chef Sean Connolly, who is widely known for his exceptional creations in the kitchen, Balcony Bar & Oyster Co’s menu focuses on simple, honest, seasonal dishes. 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?

Balcony Bar & Oyster Co’s range of enticing wedding and event packages have been carefully designed to suit all types of pre and post wedding events – you can even hire out the whole venue for the perfect reception option to follow your beach ceremony. And it’s only a hop, skip and jump for your guests to get from the sandy shores till they are mingling on the verandah’s with a champagne in hand and those divine sea breezes flowing. This exclusively private option caters for up to 200 friends and family members.
