We are


Aurora Bar and Restaurant opened its doors in 2013 after father and son owners, Stephen and Callum decided to undergo a new challenge by creating a modern, contemporary venue to rival other competitors on Ipswich’s popular Waterfront marina.

With an incredibly talented team, it has become a hotspot for a wide range of events, dining experiences, special occasions and those looking to enjoy the unrivalled views and scenery Aurora has to offer.

Whilst still a relatively new business, Aurora has proven a success within our busy atmospheric bar, beautiful upstairs restaurant, and additional outside seating during summer months. Whether its classic cocktails, luxurious a la carte dining, or an opportunity to enjoy our live DJ’s, Aurora has something to offer for any event or those looking to enjoy high quality service, food and drinks on a regular basis.

Offering a wide range of food and drink options, including bottomless brunch, Sunday roasts, buffets, afternoon tea and cocktail masterclasses, we believe that Aurora has the ability to continue offering high quality customer service, serving great-valued contemporary food and drink to provide a memorable experience.

We look forward to seeing you soon.




Established in 2013, our contemporary restaurant & cocktail lounge is well-known for its fantastic views along the Ipswich waterfront. It’s the perfect location for large groups, special occassions or the odd cocktail whilst soaking up the sun in the summer months.
