The Chapel bar close to the main beach, the Cairns Yacht Club and the Spanish joint in the middle of the main street is good.

If your up for chasing back packers, then Gilligans it is. $3 cans of that 9% vodka stuff. goes right through till daylight and has a pool to beat a hangover in, as in you cant get a hangover if your still drunk :)

Navy shore leave was good times!

The chapel has been closed for around 2 years now but it was a nice place. It's a fancy thai food place now. The old cairns yacht club is also a thing of the past, they do have a new facility at the marina though but I don't thing they have a public bar/ resturant.

But there are literally hundred of places to grab a five star meal at the pier or along the esplanade all with great views and fantastic atmosphere. We still head down there on a weekly basis to grab a feed and soak up the ambience.

Hope the weather stays good for your trip. Was postcard perfect today, was a sham to waste it working.

Head down to the Marina at the Pier. On the northern side, on the bottom are a fair few restaurants/bars that go well on a Friday. Try that or the bar area at the back of the Courtyard or Gilligans. The Mad Cow (near Gilligans) still goes really well depending on your age or the Casino does alright.
