I believe we have identified this house as 6 Mott Street. It's had a few updates since this photo was taken and sadly the dark green barn style garage doors are gone, but you can still clearly see the original lines of the home.

Tintenbar, located 33km from the heart of Byron Bay in the verdant hinterland, is becoming an exceedingly sought after location.

Matt Hunt - Loft Byron Bay

What brought you to the Byron Bay area?
I’d been coming to Byron for years on holidays with my family and decided to base myself here last year. It has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. I think you just have to drive past the “Cheer up, Slow down, Chillout” sign to appreciate the allure of this place. It sums it up perfectly - and it’s a great mantra for us to have at Loft too.
How did the idea for Loft first come about?
After leaving the rat race of Melbourne following nearly a decade of running hospitality ventures, I wanted to create a venue that could host its patrons from day until night, offering a local spot to just sit back and relax with mates and enjoy good food and drink in a comfortable environment. I got wind that there was a space coming up, as soon as I saw it I knew it would be special. And that was the beginning of the Loft dream - 8 months later and here we are!
You previously owned and ran the well-known restaurant/bar The Village in St Kilda Melbourne?
I previously owned The Belgian Beer Cafe and Beer Garden which became The Village, as well as Ormond Hall. As a venue, The Village was huge, with five distinct hospitality destinations in one heritage building. After I sold out I knew that I wanted to do something new. I continued to travel to Byron regularly, noticing the influx of cafes and restaurants over the years, always wanting to one day create my own concept – combining my passion for food and drink with my love for this coastal town and its relaxed, casual vibe. And here we are!
Where does your interest in running boutique restaurant/bars come from?
From a very young age, I was drawn to the industry. Starting young, I worked in pubs and restaurants through my high school years. I knew it was what I wanted to do with my life. This experience built up a real desire to learn more and try new things and see how food can change people’s experiences and ultimately bring 
fun! My passion for food comes from a childhood of always loving hospitality, with a lot of my inspiration for food stemming from countless home cooked meals with my family. Mum was big on using fresh produce, organic and biodynamic foods, almost to the point where I could not be sure what I was eating as a kid. She really instilled in me a passion for great produce and food!
What is your favourite dish and drink on the menu at Loft?
There aren’t many things better than popping in for a meal after a swim in the
bay and hooking into our Loft style ‘Fish and Chips’... these aren’t just any fish and chips. Our chef prepares a crispy beer battered mulloway, served with pea puree and our secret ingredient malt vinegar fries with house-made tartare sauce. Paired with a crisp white wine – this combo is definitely a favourite!
What can people expect at Loft?
What makes Loft unique is the casual and fun atmosphere we offer our customers - our food and drinks are served all day! This is something a little different for Byron. At any stage of the day - after a swim at the beach or for a Sunday afternoon session with friends, we provide a space where people can really let their hair down, eat and drink as long as they like, in fact we encourage it!
With an alluring cocktail list and a carefully curated selection of international and local beers and wines – our diverse drinks menu provides something for everyone.

Our food menu invites you to share by offering a wide range of cured meats and cheeses on top of a local seafood selection amongst other meals.
Finish this sentence
My ideal day starts with… a lighthouse walk followed by a dip at Watego’s.
And finishes with… a balmy evening of drinks with mates on the terrace at Loft of course!
