I regularly drop into Bernie's for a hit of local jazz, but don't seem to make it often enough - something I will remedy. The local musos invariably make the effort worthwhile, but every so on Bernie features out-of towners, and the Wednesday before Easter was one such occasion. The room (admittedly small and intimate) was packed, the beer cold,... More

Can't believe they would have an amazing jazz bar like this in Cairns. The band is always very talented, the drinks are very fairly priced, and I've only had the cheese platter, but I don't even think I could make one like it myself for $14. The place is small, but nice. Young and old mixed crowd. Plus there is... More

Such a delightful little cafe!! I loved the live music (starts later in the evening), the band was fantastic. You can have drinks or dinner (or both). There was a great mix of people there, and although my friend and I were probably the youngest ones there we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Definitely worth a visit.

I didn't think these little jazz venues even existed anymore. I was in Cairns on a dive holiday and just happened to walk by this place. What a find ! It's a small bar with jazz piano solos on alternative evenings and small groups playing on other nights. The first night I came in, there was a piano, sax, drums... More

If you like easy listening jazz then this place is the place for you. The music, people, atmosphere and food are just fabulous! I loved it, we just sat back, ate and listened. It's a small venue but that's part of what makes it great. Very highly recommended and I'll certainly be going again when I'm back in Cairns.
