Welcome to The Cotton Club

Dining in the city

A cosmopolitan restaurant and bar by day and an intimate cocktail venue by night, The Cotton Club is the meeting place for locals and visitors in the heart of Cairns city. It is the choice of workers meeting colleagues for lunch, couples sharing a meal before a movie and friends heading out for a drink and night on the town. Birthdays, hen’s nights, and special occasions are celebrated in the private function area.

Easing from day to night, The Cotton Club sets the mood for an evening to remember.


The Cotton Club can be yours for functions for small or large groups of people. Choose the Cocktail bar or alfresco areas downstairs. Larger groups can be accommodated in the upstairs function area.

Packages can be tailored to suit the occasion and your budget and all include your lighting and audio-visual needs. An event coordinator will be on-site to cater to your every need and ensure your function’s success.

When the party is over there is no need to leave – you are already in an after-party venue which opens to the public once your function has ended.

Cocktail Bar

The Cotton Club cocktail bar has its own take on exotic cocktails to cool you down or heat the night up. Try an Elderflower Martini for an elegant taste sensation or treat yourself to a drink that is as good as dessert – a Twisted Russian.

Traditional cocktails like Mint Juleps and Cosmopolitans are also on the menu or The Cotton Club mixologists can whip up a creation just for you.

Craft beers are a speciality with flavours from around the country including Byron Bay’s Stone & Wood Pacific Ale.

The Cotton Club chefs pair innovative culinary techniques with traditional tavern fare to create comfort food made from scratch. From the grilled local barramundi to the twice-cooked pork belly, this is hearty gastropub fare that will keep you coming back.

In the evening the juicy steaks are popular and many a shared plate of salt and pepper calamari or mini lamb koftas is consumed over drinks, while the salads and gourmet sandwiches are often the choice at lunch. Enjoy al fresco dining with air-conditioning in the new outdoor area overlooking the magnificent fig trees in City Place or cosy up in an intimate booth alongside the premium cocktail bar.
