West Beach Bathers Pavilion
Time Out says
No, that's not Bali. Heck, it's not even Byron Bay. But relaxing on one of the deckchairs at West Beach Bathing Pavilion, you could be forgiven for forgetting you're in St Kilda, and only 20 minutes out of the CBD.
The bayside views at West Beach Bathers Pavilion attract everyone from locals wanting their morning coffee to larger groups in need of a stylish function space. The original building is almost 100 years old, dating back to the 1920s. As such, the pavilion has plenty of nostalgic charm and Art Deco touches. The building makes the most of its location with floor-to-ceiling windows and an outside area that melts into the sand.
Naturally, you can find lots of seaside favourites on the menu. As the seasons change so does the menu but you can always get a crisp serve of fish and chips, Spring Bay mussels and Tasmanian ocean trout. West Beach Pavilion is also dog and child friendly, and it's perfect for a post-swim pick-me-up.
