Kick off with New Year’s Day

Brought to you by Byron Bay Premium Lager


Our 2020 party is done and dusted! Photos will be available soon on our Facebook page. Happy New Year to all!


How does Sydney’s beachside playground celebrate five years of epic New Year’s Day parties? With the biggest of them all– and the ultimate summer collaboration. To ring in the new decade, we’re partnering up with SODA Shades and bringing you their signature party vibe that’s blazed a trail across the globe, from the rooftops of NYC to the beaches of the Gold Coast, and now back to Watsons Bay after a sell out Australia Day party.

Hosted by Steph Claire Smith and Josh Miller, with their crew flying in from across Australia to get amongst the party vibes, they’re curating the ultimate NYD, the SODA way.

All tickets include 2 hours of free flowing premium beverages from 12pm-2pm

Including Byron Bay Premium Lager + our Watsons famous eats.

Start your year (and decade) on the dancefloor because Josh Miller has curated the ultimate start to 2020!




Keep your eyes peeled across Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel, SODA Shades, Steph & Josh’s instagrams because there’s plenty of give-aways as we celebrate the countdown to this epic party. On the day, their famous text line will be going off with plenty of bar tabs including buckets of Byron Bay Premium Lager and our custom palm chain to keep everyone entertained.


What’s a collab without a little take home? We’re created the ultimate SODA x WATSONS sunnies chain – palm tree and all! Available to purchase soon from the SODA shop and on the day (for a special discounted price!).

In the meantime, grab yourself some of their cult sunglasses by heading to the SODA Shades page and indulge in some online retail therapy as you prep for Summer to start.


The crew are famous for creating a vibe that flows throughout the venue & beyond so expect a lot of fun with the SODA touch at every turn. Included in this is our Recovery Room – full of all the things you need to be your freshest self to start 2020. Think fresh juices (and spiking them with a splash of vodka), foot massages with hair and make up touch ups!

Ready to kick on? Get your tickets now and enjoy all these epic drinks for a 2 glorious hours!
