This Saturday marks the opening of the Oyster Shed Beach Club at the Sandstone Point Hotel.
The Comiskey Group will be unveiling the latest offering at the Sandstone Point Hotel. The new beach club has a history as a beloved local fish and chip shop and a successful oyster farm. The landmark red tin roof of the original oyster farm has been retained and was renovated along with the rest of the hotel development in 2015.
“The Oyster Shed has always been hugely popular but since the hotel grew in popularity and Sandstone Point Holiday Resort opened its doors,” said Rob Comiskey, Director of the Comiskey Group, “We knew we wouldn’t be able to keep up with demand. It’s been a great solution for walk-ins who can’t get into the hotel’s restaurant during busy weekends, but we knew we could do more with the space.”
The expanded beach club boasts an undercover dining area and a cocktail station. The décor takes inspiration from beach clubs in Greece and Bali, with designer landscaping, lounge-style furniture and day beds. The food menu has also been updated, featuring fresh local seafood, from charcoal roasted prawns to king fish sashimi, and an expansive cocktail list.
“It is a lot more vibrant with cruisy upbeat music and more areas to relax in,” Comiskey said of the expansion, “Triple the size with plenty to offer, now more people can enjoy this idyllic spot on the water.”
This opening comes only a week after the Comiskey Group unveiled The Doonan. Their Sunshine Coast pub has been well received, with a 4,000 person waitlist for their restaurant. Similar to the Oyster Shed Beach club, the site’s original red brick structure of The Doonan has been kept intact.
The Oyster Shed Beach Club will celebrate their opening by hosting a free 18+ party on April 8. The party will run from 3pm to 9pm, with a DJ set from ARIA-winning producer Stace Cadet.
