There are not too many bars and clubs in Airlie anyway, I guess this is just one of the standard... read more

Better than being poked in the eye with a blunt stick... barely though. Not one African person was observed. Not upset, just disappointed.

Came here with a group of friends. Staff were friendly and cocktails were on special, so that's always nice ($10). The place did remind me of my local dice bar however. Would visit again given the correct circumstances.

Instead of going back to our honeymoon suite my new husband and all our friends came here for a night out. From what I can remember this place was fantastic. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and awesome music!

We went to Boom, Magnums and the Beaches Bar and Grill, and this one trumped all of them. Average-priced drinks, nice staff, cool looking decorations and friendly people. Would go back again.

Currently in Airlie beach, where I took a visit to Mama Africa. We had heard that this was the club to visit, so headed there with a group of girls. The club is pretty small but plays decent recent music. Our tour guide gave us...More

This place wouldn't play any of the songs we requested even though no one was dancing and we KNEW the songs would get people to dance. The only thing that redeemed this place was the awesome bartender.More
