THE BOWER MAY WELL HAVE STARTED LIFE AS A LAID-BACK 60'S BEACH MOTEL BUT ALONG WITH TRANSFORMING IT INTO STUNNING, LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOLIDAY ACCOMM, WE'VE ALSO SAID GOODBYE TO THE TYPICAL MINI-BAR AND PUT IN PLACE AN EXCITING, HAND-PICKED SELECTION OF THE FINEST WINE, SPIRITS, ALCOHOL-FREE BEVVIES AND NIBBLES.
We’ve taken our time to create something really special and it will continue to evolve as we add in new selections from brands that inspire us and share our take on the world. And it’s not just about a focus on local. It’s about quality and environmental footprint too which is why we aim for glass and aluminium over plastic.
So will it be a Nitro Cold Brew if it’s a caffeine hit you need or a Northern Rivers Ink Gin which changes colour when you add the sparkling tonic. Perhaps an Everleigh Cocktail, a sneaky Riot wine in a can or a bottle of the most exquisite Peregrine wine from Otago in Central NZ. Maybe it’s a smooth Captain Sensible from Balter Beers or a drop of Signature Wines from deep in the heart of the Adelaide Hills. Then there’s vodka and soda in a can and Moet of course. A holiday’s just not a holiday without bubbles at some point! Of course we need alcohol-free options too. It’s why we’ve included a great take on the humble G&T that has no alcohol, sugar or additives, and, poured over our over-sized ice blocks, is undetectable from the real thing.
And the nibbles? In every fridge you’ll find a delicious assortment of cheeses, pastes, Salumi salami, Byron Bay Crackers, walnuts and more to create your own delicious nibble plate. Then there’s Red Rock Honey Soy Chicken chips - because they’re our faves - Brookfarm muesli and macadamia nut snacks and next level chocolates from Loco Love which are just simply seductive at every bite.
It’s a mini bar that’s been created with love – and lots of sampling – by our Bower team, with input too from some of our regular guests. So sitting beside the stunning circular Bower pool, encircled by lush towering greenery, your nibble plate and wine, beer, G&T, Vodka, cocktail or mocktail chilling in the ice bucket beside you, or propped up in your 5 Star bed with a glass of wine, some chips or chocolate and a bit of Netflix, we’ve got you covered.
We’re all about the detail at The Bower. That and making your every visit unforgettable.
