Light Years, Byron bay

Located in the Jonson Lane precinct, the reimagined Light Years Byron Bay oozes coastal modernity with warm textures, earthy tones and clay-colored hues. The space, designed by Studio Plenty and Sarah Ellison, combines all the things we love about Byron - the warmth, endless sunshine and a good dose of grounded holiday vibes! 

Perch at the terrazzo bar for a drink and a snack, or settle into one of the cozy banquets for a lengthy feast of delicious modern Asian cuisine. Wash it all down with punchy cocktails and a well thought out wine list. Both inside and alfresco seating available, along with a 12-seat private dining room.
