"Great time @ The Pier Bar"

Our friends living in Cairns suggested we have dinner and drinks with them at The Pier Bar located at The Marina on the Esplanade in Cairns. Ample parking available and easy walking distance if you're staying in Cairns CBD. We didn't make a reservation but recommend so as not to disappoint. Very... read more

We decided to call in after lunch for a few drinks. This was the first time I had ever been here even though I have frequented the pier itself on a number of occasions. The service was friendly and the beer was cold. People were out on the veranda enjoying the the view over the water. The bar is very... More

Very nice and elegant bar to catch up with friends and have fun trying different drinks. The barman is really easy and open to new ideas when it comes to mixed drinks. Located right next to the lagoon and terminals makes it really popular place not only for locals.

Went here for a few cocktails. YUM. Could drink them all day, but they are a bit expensive. We went past here on Saturday night but it was too busy to go in. A place for the younger crowd.

This bar was handy to the water and the lagoon, just what we needed after a long walk, good service and good food, I had the prawn linguini and it was lovely.

Looking over the water, it is a great place to go to get your night started, A vast range of drinks and bar eats which are reasonably priced. On a Friday or Saturday it gets very full and loud however some like this.Very popular with the locals.

I'm a Pizza specialist. The restaurant I worked at used to pump out 25KG of pizza a douigh a day. $25K of pizza a week! I've run a wood oven a couple times too. They're challenging. The pizza cooks in like 90 seconds when they're properly heated. Enough about me, you want to know whether to order the pizza at... More

The Pier Bar is a very popular place with locals it's off the main drag but with lovely views close to the marina. It has been refurbished and extended.
