Sky High Drinks at Lilo – Rooftop Bar in Cairns, Australia

in Australia

Rooftop bars first became popular in Miami, Florida, but these days they’re popping up all over the world. Now Australia has gotten in on the act with the launch of Lilo at the top of the Rydges Plaza in Cairns, north Queensland.

Lilo makes the most of the warm weather that Queensland’s top end is famous for.

Sun streams into the indoor lounge and dining areas, and shines on the folks lounging in the cabanas or by the pool outdoors. Once the sun sets the music starts pumping and candlelight bathes the bar in a romantic glow. Breakfast is served daily from 6 am, but the main draw cards are the burgers served for lunch and dinner. If you've got an appetite, prepare to take on the challenge of the Big Ass Burgers. Each one has more than 2.7 kg of beef with salad, cheese, and mayo, so prepare to share them around amongst your friends! If your palate is a bit more delicate you could order a tiny burger known as a slider, or a serve of delicious asparagus fries. The wet bar opens in the afternoon at 4 pm. The dress code is relaxed, with people enjoying drinks in their swimsuits as the sun sets. For all the cool of Miami with a distinctly Australian flavor, make sure you find time to enjoy a couple of drinks at Lilo on your next Aussie vacation.
