What a fabulous little place full of locals having a wonderful time. A perfect laid back jazz bar.Loved Bernie the owner as he was a friendly guy. The barmaid had attitude and it spoilt our great night.

“Atmosphere Plus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

What a great little place! We ducked in quickly for tapas and wine before we headed off to a show. The place is full of atmosphere, charm, character and friendly faces. The food was great and served quickly, and the music was lovely (not jazz), but we were only there for a short time and it looked like it was winding up for a good night. I cannot wait to visit again.

“The new Johnnos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

A few years ago, before all the new anti smoking laws, there used to be Johnno's Blues Bar in Cairns. A great place where local Johnno jammed with his mates. It was just laid back and relaxing. Well Bernies is the the new Johnnos. This great little Jazz bar is small in size but big in atmosphere. The music is laid back, the atmosphere is soft and the food is great. Try the duck spring rolls for a snack with a nice glass of Shiraz....spot on. Hard to get a seat on busy nights but squeeze in and enjoy the music. Bernie, his mates and even the diners get to jam in this cosy little joint. Great if you're after a more adult feel rather than a pub full of backpackers.

“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Up in Cairns visiting my sister and really needing some live music. Found Bernie's on the web and what a find. Cool jazz, no pressure, great drinks and wonderful atmosphere. A not to be missed experience for those who need some soul food. We were really lucky as the Janet Seidel Trio were in town and dropped in and played an impromptu set. Many muso's seem to know of this place and end up here late at night.
