I've been to many bars traveling Australia and must say, this place hits one of the top spots on my list. Great selection of spirits, fun atmosphere, great and helpful bartenders, and the BBQ is some of the best I've had. Will definitely be back!

We are owners and operators of a multi award winning bar in Sydney and we've taken our unique bar creating talents to the heart of Byron Bay! Be excited - we are! As evening approaches, The Bolt Hole is a hidden treasure in the heart of Byron Bays town centre. Sitting at the top of a 2 story building at 9 Fletcher St, The Bolt Hole enjoys open panoramic windows which frame the stunning Byron hinterland and the famous breathtaking sunsets. The Bolt Hole is a dimly lit refuge from Byron Bay's sun-dazed, crowded streets. Entering via a vintage church door, visitors find themselves in a cosy, vintage haven, with references to hunting, steam trains and nautical escapades. Green Chesterfields, handmade furniture, antique light fittings and a tarnished copper bar, supported by recycled timber ensure The Bolt Hole is a place you will never want to leave. The 6m bar showcases over 200 Whiskys & Gins, Craft cocktails, artisanal spirits, organic wines and a cracking Craft Beer list! Our kitchen boasts a hand crafted wood fired smoker imported from the US. We offer 'low and slow cooked' BBQ treats all ethically sourced locally with seasonal variations. Our Pitmaster is always smoking up an American barbeque storm delivering a stateside culinary tour for all, with Certified Angus Beef (CAB) Brisket, Smoked Berkshire Pork, Apple Wood Smoked Pork Ribs, Smoked Sticky Salmon, Hickory Smoked Chicken and the already famous The Bolt Hole Burger. Bluesy music, designer bathrooms and a host of hidden features make this venue a real bartenders hangout. Check it out next time your in Byron Bay. If you ever needed an excuse to visit - The Bolt Hole is your answer! We look forward to welcoming you to The Bolt Hole soon!
