At Cayman Villas, we’re excited to guide you through some of the best spots to enjoy live music in our beautiful coastal town.

Court House Hotel

A staple in the Port Douglas live music scene, The ‘Courty’ is where the community gathers for a good time. Coined the “Home of Live Music” in Port Douglas for a reason, you can enjoy live performances up to five nights a week in their spacious Beer Garden. It’s the perfect place to unwind with a drink while soaking in the vibrant atmosphere with views over Macrossan St and across to the stunning Coral Sea.
