The Pier Bar & Grill has possibly the most enviable location in Cairns, overlooking the water across the Coral Sea to incoming boats and yachts.
The Pier hospitality is down to earth with a large open deck filling with locals and tourists housing 350 patrons.

 The Pier Bar & Grill made the conscious decision to invest in further cost efficient Anolis LED lighting, to add mood and ambience into the venue, as well as reduce power consumption and maintenance. JVG Sound Lighting & Visual was approached to supply and install the lighting. JVG’s North Queensland Sales Manager Scott Miller along with Pier Bar & Grill Owner John Hassler designed the lighting scheme to suit the venues needs.

A quantity of Anolis ArcSource 6 RGB Warm White fixtures were used above all the mirrors and columns around the venue and around the pool table area, beaming with rich colours setting ambience. Anolis Arclink RGB was used for high output in the feature lamps shades throughout the venue providing a seamless rich glow of colour.

“The patron’s love the results as the room looks over the inlet of Cairns and at night the lighting changes with the setting of the sun which truly sets the room off”, says Scott. All Anolis fixtures were powered by Anolis ArcPower 16×6 and ArcPower 144 LED control drivers, and controlled via an E:Cue Excite +. “The Anolis additions have definitely created a more relaxing atmosphere for people to come in and enjoy a nice ice cold beer and glass of wine whilst watching the sunset”, says Scott.

On the dance floor area Robe ColorSpots 170AT project bright colours and effects on the floor giving a vast array of visual effects. Scott says “John wanted the best in LED lighting, and Anolis was the best choice. With JVG using them in a lot of installs in the past (Consortium Townsville & Cocktails and Dreams on the Gold Coast), I said Anolis was the way to go. The colours that they produce – like the reds and blues are so bright and deep. Overall they are an excellent and reliable fixture. The Robes 170AT were existing fixtures but the light output from them and gobo and colours are amazing!”
