New rooftop bar for Cairns as Oaks hotel prepares for September opening

The Oaks Cairns Hotel is set to welcome its first guests next month with the new $12 million, 76-room hotel to offer a rooftop restaurant and bar in the Cairns CBD.

The rooftop Oak and Vine restaurant and bar will serve daily buffet or a la carte breakfast and light lunch before transforming into a cocktail bar at night.

“It has been a challenging year for the tourism industry with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting all hotels nationally,” Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites chief operating officer Craig Hooley told the Cairns Post.

“Minor (Hotel Group) is confident in the return of the traveller and thrilled to see Oaks continue to move forward and expand its portfolio into the city centre of Cairns, offering a premium accommodation option from which to explore the region.”
