A beach restaurant, cafe and bar, Beach Club offers panoramic Harbour views and a quintessentially Australian culture. Beach Club has established itself as a landmark venue for casual dining, as well as large celebrations, lavish parties and as a must-go-to destination for all to visit. In the morning, our experienced baristas busily brew takeaway coffee for early morning risers whilst some enjoy a sit down breakfast underneath our chic Basil Bangs umbrellas. Lunches are generally long, lazy, sundrenched affairs and are best enjoyed with a cocktail in hand. The effervescent chatter of tourists, locals, families and visitors alike later interweave with the sound of an acoustic band, or chillout DJ set as we welcome the night and feast on seafood platters and dinner delights. Come for a little and grab some takeaway from our Fish and Chippery to eat along the beach, or come for a while and indulge in a seafood feast with friends and family laughing the night away. Inspirations for the menus have come from the proximity to the sea as well as our chefs’ dedication and passion for fresh seasonal produce and quality seafood. Our catering might make you want to straighten your backs a little and stick out your pinkie whilst drinking your beer, but rest assured that Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel thrives on a vibe which is chilled and tranquil. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days there is something for everyone.

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel

1 Military Rd, Watsons Bay, New South Wales, Australia



Sydney’s Harbour is a cool combination of city action, beautiful boats, gorgeous sunsets and stunning views of the Pacific. In the quiet and quaint section of Watsons Bay sits a lovely boutique hotel that serves as a getaway to tourists and residents alike. With views of the harbor and a big park just next door, Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is a breezy, charming location fit for a fabulous wedding fete.

Photographer Russell Stafford recently captured a wedding for adorable couple Jason + Kristie Lee, who opted to use the lush Robertson Park next door to Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel for their wedding ceremony spot, and hosted their reception at the hotel’s modern party space. For those interested in a similar affair, the hotel is currently offering some sweet discounts on winter weddings, not the least of which includes a complimentary night’s stay, antipasto experience station, value savings and limited time special upgrade offer! Head on over to their site for deets and here’s a little info from the wedding planning crew over at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel.
