Time to break out the leather jack­ets and hit RJ’s Lounge and Bar

AJUKEBOX, luscious milk­shakes, burg­ers al­most too big to hold and enough 60s swag­ger to have any­one dig­ging out their leather jack­ets, RJ’s Rock‘n’Roll Diner con­tin­ues to prove that no one is too old or too young to get in the groove here.

RJ’s Rock‘n’Roll Diner is the pas­sion of owner Robert Ne­witt, him­self a frus­trated rocker who wanted to cre­ate the ul­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence for lo­cals and vis­i­tors to the re­gion, and from the rave re­views on Trip Ad­vi­sor he has def­i­nitely been suc­cess­ful.

The diner, with its red leather booths, black and white floor­ing and records dot­ted along the walls, has a juke­box pump­ing out tunes, which is what got the crowds en­thused to start with, but Mr Ne­witt has con­tin­ued to take this venue to a whole new level with two other avail­able ar­eas.

Space, char­ac­ter and at­mos­phere are not miss­ing at RJ’s and Mr Ne­witt has worked hard to make it a place to suit a so­cial gath­er­ing, work party, birth­day party or even a funky wed­ding re­cep­tion, with the restau­rant next door seating in ex­cess of 100 peo­ple com­fort­ably and is avail­able for hire.

Mr Ne­witt also has a red GT Fal­con avail­able for your wed­ding day as well as of­fer­ing a unique Rock n Roll Show fea­tur­ing songs of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Roy Or­bi­son, Johnny O’Keefe and many more great tunes from the 1950–60s.

The restau­rant, RJ’s Lounge and Bar, has a stage, dance floor and 10 big-screen TVs and has cer­tainly been the place where much of Bund­aberg’s hid­den tal­ent has been dis­cov­ered at one of the venue’s karaoke nights on the first Fri­day night each month or Swingers Dance Class ev­ery Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day nights.

Con­sid­er­ing the karaoke often comes with RJ’s Amer­i­can-style bar­be­cue, how can you go wrong?

RJ’s Rock n Roll Hide­away Bar is also prov­ing to be a hit with lo­cals want­ing to just kick back, have a quiet drink and a game of pool and en­joy the au­then­tic 60s vibe – maybe even re­live their youth a lit­tle.

The re­sult over­all is an au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence that is a first for Bund­aberg and it is bring­ing the vis­i­tors from near and far over and over again.

For Mr Ne­witt it is clear he has stuck to his phi­los­o­phy of “if you’re go­ing to do it, you’ve got to do it right”.

And as the re­views con­tinue to rave about RJ’s be­ing a real find with bril­liant at­mos­phere and decor, backed by Mr Ne­witt’s con­tin­ued ex­cite­ment and charm, it is def­i­nitely the place to be.
