Best Places To Drink In Airlie Beach

Posted on 8 March 2018

Everyone knows when making a trip to the Whitsundays, it is never complete without hitting up the bars and clubs of Australia's stunning Airlie Beach. Not only is Airlie Beach famous because of its fantastic crystal clear waters and infamous Whitsundays in the backyard. After you have enjoyed your Whitsundays adventure (or even before) this is a list with the top 5 bars located in Airlie Beach which will make your time in Australia the best! Getting excited already? Here we go!


Mama Africa Bar and Nightclub


Whitsundays Sailing Tour

Thanks to@mamaafricaairliebeach

If unleashing your inner beast has been on your bucket list, this is the perfect bar for you! Because if you decide to hit up this infamous club, you better be in for a big night. Once you have entered through the cave themed entrance, the party animal gets loose, and there is only one way back out, and it’s definitely not standing. So be prepared to show off your beastly moves on the Zebra striped dance floor between the other party animals on your own private slice of Africa.


Down Under Bar & Grill

You have already made it all the way here to Australia, you might as well go all the way down under. Down Under is the best place to start your night and have some pre-drinks. If you haven’t been thoroughly acquainted with the sacred Aussie drinking rituals, then hold onto your kangaroos and prepare yourself. You are about to have an Aussie night full of ice cold beers and to-die-for steaks. If that isn’t enough Down Under has a fully equipped dance floor including a pole to ‘exercise’ and burn all those liquid calories you just had.


Boom Nightclub

When you feel like having a fancy night in Airlie Beach Boom is the perfect fit for you! This club is famous for its stylish lounge areas. You can show your dancing skills on the electric beats playing all night long. Dancing not enough for you? This bar is also famous for its karaoke songs. Sing along to famous hits and show off those pipes.

What do you get when you combine cheap drinks, pumping music and good vibes? You end up at Magnums. If you’re seeking out an amazing night but don’t want to spend your entire budget on one night this is the place to go. Being one of the busiest places in Airlie Beach, when you combine Magnums with a Friday night, something truly magical happens.


Paddy's Shenanigans

What a name right? Make your own shenanigans until the early hours of the morning. This Irish-themed bar is packed with Irish culture. Enjoy live music with a cold Guinness every night. This bar even has its own famous signature drink – The Nashy. Curious what's in it? Maybe take a look in this bar while you are in Airlie!


The Shed Bar

Thanks to @shedbar.airlie

Seeking a more local bar experience. The Shed bar is it! Being a small bar, hidden behind the famous Nomads Backpackers Hostel, this is a perfect relaxed time. This bar is ideal if you are travelling alone and looking for a bar where you can socialize in a more laid back environment. This bar is situated under a beautiful old tree. This is the place to be on Sundays! As they say it themselves “Airlies worst kept secret”.
