Cha Am beach area has restaurants and bars, but very quiet after about 9 pm. If you want more excitement then take hotel shullte bus or taxi into Hua Hin. Night markets, restaurants, bars, even a show! Lively at night, discos open until about 2 a.m.
A good idea is to take a taxi and arrange for them to collect you for the return trip, a 2 way trips costs about $8. Taxis though are available all night from Hua Hin.
Dress Code: Casual everywhere.
This place supplies live entertainment at night in a town where most of the music is provided via CD and karaoke machine. The entertainment comes in the form of a Thai covers band with apparently interchangeable lead vocalists. They play Thai pop songs with a very occasional Western cover thrown in. The Eagles Hotel California was well done. Whilst certainly not the most accomplished Thai pop band I have ever heard, the young musicians are very enthusiastic and provide a decent show. They normally come on stage about 9.
Should you wish to dine, food is available here and appears to be served later than elsewhere. My sweet and sour spare ribs were very tasty.
Service is good and friendly and I recommend this place.
Dress Code: None.
