Styled like a Hamptons house, the Ocean Beach bar and restaurant is all beachy whites, marine blues and seaside greens.

Since the stylish makeover, which saw it transformed from a Mexican cantina to something more befitting the beachside suburb, Margarita Daze has cemented its place as a coastal fave.

Inside the light-filled beach house, there are high tables with bright and cheery stools and cosy nooks with comfy cane chairs, decorated with cacti, succulents and striped cushions.

A spacious deck makes the most of the killer views over Ocean Beach to Lion Island and Sydney in the distance.

With prime position overlooking the beach, Margarita Daze is where you want to be on a balmy evening or a sunny afternoon, sipping on a cocktail or an ice-cold beer. They even offer the latest cocktail fad – froze.

It’s hard to beat the serenity when there’s a sea breeze tickling the palm fronds, sun shining on your face and a cold drink within arm’s reach.

On weekends, local musos ensure there’s a lively atmosphere to accompany your sundowner.

It’s worth booking on the weekend to dine on the deck or secure a spot under the lights to party into the night.

At Margarita Daze, the doors are always open and the day bed forever beckons.
