The Sandbar Scarborough Beach

We were born on Saturday 31st August 2013 at 10:03am.

The name was created through a competition: ‘Name your new local ‘ for which thousands of residents were asked to submit their ideas for the chance to win 6 months of VIP treatment at our new look venue. After receiving over 1200 suggestions, The Sandbar Scarborough Beach was formed and the winner announced… Ruth Lavender of South Perth.

We are locally owned and operated here at The Sandbar… with the owner and majority of our team living amongst the Scarborough community.

The Sandbar has a ‘no bookings’ policy. We aim to seat everyone, and believe customers who are here wanting a table will always get one. For all large bookings and function enquiries, please email: functions@sandbar.com.au

Thanks so much for stopping by The Sandbar, please feel free to let us know about your experience… We would love to hear from you. And remember… Life is better at the beach.

The Team at The Sandbar Scarborough Beach

Locally owned and operated

The Sandbar is locally owned and operated by Ben Randall, and our team of approximately 55 employees. Prior to taking over the business in August 2013, Ben had spent the previous 12 years at The Paddington Alehouse, which his family has owned and operated since 1987. He has been fortunate enough to grow up in and experience first-hand this amazing industry.

At The Sandbar, community involvement is what we are all about. Our team always puts the needs of the community first – and, being locally owned and operated, we know what is needed to accomplish this. We believe that our customers are the ones who make and define a venue, and we certainly hope to be remembered as the best venue in Scarborough.

Our aim is to help put Scarborough Beach back on the world map…where it belongs! With the $100m redevelopment of the foreshore (which started back in 2016 and includes the recently opened Scarborough Beach Pool), about to be complete…there has never been a more exciting time for our amazing beach front.

If you are yet to visit, it’s a must!! And we certainly hope to see you at The Sandbar 

Scarborough’s First Beach Bar & Restaurant

On 1 August 2013, our team took over Zanders Scarborough and Torch Bar, and began implementing changes straight away. The plan was to create a new brand, with a new food menu, beer list, wine list, and cocktail list. Most importantly, a new name – which was chosen by the local community, and our logo, which we hope will be with us for many years to come.

At The Sandbar Scarborough Beach our offerings are diverse yet simple – wood fired pizzas, craft tap beer, award winning wines, cocktails (selected by our staff), and of course, friendly service.

The Sandbar has a ‘no bookings’ policy. We aim to seat everyone, and believe customers who are here wanting a table will always get one. For all large bookings and function enquiries please email our Functions Manager, Robyn: functions@sandbar.com.au

The Sandbar is located at 1 Scarborough Beach Road, Scarborough Beach – right next to the Scarborough Beach Clock Tower. For further information, email The Sandbar or phone (08) 9245 2001.
