Byron Bay Nightlife – Clubs, Bars & Nightlife Tip

Byron Bay Nightlife

If you are wanting to enjoy live bands and entertainment, you’ll have plenty of options in Byron Bay. Check out the following reviews before you plan your night on the town!

Backpackers Bar

You can get a cheap meal here and then dance all night. They’ve got special tables you can dance on and there are games all night. If you come late, you may even find a line outside.

Cheeky Monkeys

This is a crazy place where people dance on the tables. This nightclub is packed with backpackers and young people out for a fun night on the town. There are many competitions with prizes from the bar and special prices before 9 p.m. I would not recommend eating dinner there even though you only have to pay around 2 AUD for some beef or pasta meal. This place is good for people watching. If you’re looking for a more stylish place, Cheeky Monkeys is not your destination.

Main Street Byron Bay

During the summer when the sun goes down ,the main street of Byron Bay gets even busier! Once the shops have closed, the market traders set up stores in the entranceways of the shops selling beads, tie-dye wraps – basically all the stuff you would see in the markets. The street essentially becomes a night-market with the buskers playing music. In addition, the park on Main Beach always has a group of buskers playing bongo drums or doing some fire-dancing. The Beach Hotel across the street is normally pretty packed with patrons enjoying an easygoing, beach vibe.

Great Northern Hotel

This venue happens to pull an unbelievable amount of international touring and Australian bands. I think that bands like to play here just to have a stay over in Byron.

The Beach Hotel

The Beach Hotel has plenty of live music on the weekends, large crowds and cold beer. Entertainment commences during the afternoon and goes into the night. The music appeals to all age groups.

The Beach and the Stars

What could be nicer than spending some time on the beach listening to the waves roll in and watching the stars in the sky. Everyone likes to kick back and relax!
