    We met friends here after work for some pre dinner drinks. The decor was funky and the house music was really good, I even downloaded it from Spotify. The girls had a couple of different cocktails each and I tried a few of the local beers. The staff are good fun and really engaging, great spot.

    A good experience. Great place to watch all sports and enjoy a drink and quality well priced food. Service was very good. It’s worth a visit.

    On our first day in Cairns, we were looking for somewhere to have a couple of drinks and also some food when we discovered the Downunder Bar.

    I think this has to be the first bar that I have ever been in that has free pool.

    There was a good selection of drinks and food available.

    I ordered the pepperoni pizza and I must confess that I was quite impressed with the size and quality.

    The pub was frequented by friendly people that stopped to have a chat with us.

    I would recommend a visit.

    This place has two rooms, the restaurant is downstairs and upstairs in the club. I was there two weeks ago and was underwhelmed. First, there is a long line to get in, since the place is so popular. They card everyone and if you are from the states, they take your ID and enter it into their computer before they let you in. There is a AUD$7 cover per person to even get in. Once in, you go upstairs and the place is packed. The night I was there, there was a DJ just playing tunes, the place is loud, just a bunch of people hanging out, some dancing in the area where the tables are, some just around the club. Not particularly entertaining or fun, not nearly as good as the tourbooks said or some of the tourists too. Plus, If you are over 25, maybe 30, the scene may not make any sense at all to you.

    It may be one of two or three clubs in town, but to me was surely lacking in every way.

    Service was overworked and frankly not particularly friendly at the bars and at the entrance.

    I visited this hotel for a beer and a meal whilst on my holidays here in cairns. Tyla the lovely lady behind the bar was very friendly and courteous.

    Serious safety incident
    Sexist security guards.

    If you are a woman, having a good time - don’t go here. It’s ok for men to runaround like lunatics, but If a woman does 10-50% of what a man does - you are asked to leave because you are “too intoxicated”. The security here are from the 1980s; and it’s so disrespectful to be kicked out while all the sleezy guys are still on the dance floor with nothing being done and grabbing your arse.

    Absolutely zero stars - if I could!
