Bar in Cairns

Attached to the hostel of the same name but open to all-comers, this sprawling, bawdy bar is synonymous with 'having a big one' in Cairns-speak. Throngs of randy backpackers and up-for-it locals pack the place out nightly for theme events, parties and general good-timery. The attached (more upmarket) Attic nightclub opens its gilded doors on Fridays and Saturdays (7pm to 3am).
