Locura, Byron Bay

The latest offering to Byron Bay’s highly regarded food scene is a bar from the established Three Blue Ducks hospitality group. Locura celebrates fine and honest food, drink, and music; and the bar’s interior is imbued with the this ethos in a humble and meaningful way. Integrity of intent, of geometry, of finishes is consistent throughout.

Tactile materials bring warmth, texture, and colour to the largely undecorated space. The physical setting of the bar doesn’t compete to command the attention of patrons, but happily dissolves into the background; supporting and facilitating an experience that feels laid back but special, and a little different to other venues in the area.
