Nestled underneath Aquarius Backpackers the AQ bar is one of Byrons hidden gems. It’s off the main high street meaning it avoids the floods of schoolies and footie groups in peak season, allowing you to relax and enjoy your night!
Drink offer wise there’s alot to choose from. Happy hour offers everything from $5 Jagerbombs through to 2 for $5 schooners, or if you’re in a majorly cheap mood why not scull it’s famous $3 Goon-a-coladas all night?! A potent mixture of goon, fruit juice and other spirits!
There’s an outdoor bar facing the pool which makes it a great way to pass an afternoon and the spacious outdoor area also extends around to the BBQ – so you can enjoy a pint in the evening sun and have a good old catch up without being drowned out by the insanely loud music which swamps most of the other venues.
It’s a much more laid back friendly vibe – more akin to a beer garden pub than an in your face club!
Entertainment isn’t sparse on the ground and every night plays host to a different activity – the room relay invites teams to compete for an hours worth of free booze, open mic nights showcase the best in Byron and backpacker talent and then there’s the infamous AQ karaoke which always provides heaps of laughter!
It’s open from 4pm – midnight (unless of course you get invited to an after hours lock in!) so it’s a great way to start your night out before getting by the barman for discount entry into the other clubs. They also serve food too so why not kill two birds with one stone?!
Easily my favourite place to drink in Byron – good prices, good tunes, good vibes….and plenty of goon times!
