Sebastian Beach Grill and Bar is set to officially open in November at one of Williamstown’s local landmark heritage hospitality buildings, formally known to many as Sirens restaurant and more recently Shelly’s Beach Pavilion.
Located on the Williamstown foreshore and offering one of Melbourne’s best bay and sunset sceneries, the newly revamped venue draws its name and inspiration from the Spanish beachside town San Sebastian and its food and beverage offering will reflect this.
The reinvigorated restaurant is the work of leading restaurateur Dave Parker, who has partnered with friend and Williamstown resident Alex Brawn, with the duo promising a venue that embraces the community, while also catering to destination diners.
“As a Williamstown resident myself, I wanted to create a strong offering and center for the local community, somewhere where we can all build memories with our families and loved ones,” Mr Brawn said.
Parker and Brawn are collaborating with esteemed design firm Ewert Leaf, as well as Heritage Victoria, to revamp the Art-deco building with a white, blue and oak-finished timber palette and an air of Hamptons-style casual sophistication.
Sebastian Beach Grill and Bar will accommodate up to 250 patrons across its waterfront decking, bistro and dining room. They will cater to many eating and drinking needs including takeaway to enjoy on the sand, or at home, as well as functions and catering.
