This place dont look like much from the outside (or from the inside either, to be quite honest) but in this case, looks is definetly deceiving. For the three weeks we stayed on Ko Lanta We stopped here on a daily basis, partly because of the fantastic burgers and thaifood, partly because of the price of beer, but mostly because the owner and his wife is such great hosts. They even took us out on parties on quiet evenings, without making a single bath on us. (i'm actually a bit embarrassed that I didnt offer any compensation, but they never asked) A fantastic startingpoint for an evening out. The difficult thing is to find the damn place! .
Dress Code: Whatever you feel comfortable with. Shorts and T-shirt worked fine for me.

We found ourselves at the Irish Embassy every night. Because we were in Ko Lanta in October, we found that most of the bars were closed.
We had a warm welcome here. Great place to watch the football or rugby. Darren who owns this place is usually around for a chat and a beer or two.
Dress Code: No dress code

This is one of the bars at Long beach and in our opinion this was the most relaxing one. There was a lot of space were you lay down on the cushions and the music was also very diverse.
It´s the perfect spot to look back and enjoy how wonderfull your holiday is!

On my previous trip to Koh Lanta last september, I met Bob on a few different nights out with my tattoo friends. Even on our first meeting I knew that this was one crazy, but funny Thai guy. He is still the same person that I remember, except now he owns his own bar and restaurant.
While I was getting my tattoo on my last trip Bob happened to come in and say hi to me, and catch up on things. Needless to say we went to Bob's bar and had a few drinks later on that night and had a blast.
The bar is located just off the main road and it was only about a 5 minute walk from where we stayed. The restaurant and bar are quite small and because of this it doesn't take very long to fill up. Everytime we ate or drank here we enjoyed the music (reggae of course), the food, but most of all Bob himself. Some of his favorite sayings were "paradise", "freedom", "don't worry", "be happy", or different combinations of them all. Another funny thing when you are here is his passion for Bob Marley and his music. Put it this way, his name is Bob, so is his bar, he also has a dog and cat named Bob. To top that off he also has two pet fighting chickens that he has named fried and barbeque, as in chicken. He also looks like the late Mr. Marley so much that I think he could be his long lost Thai brother...hehe.
Besides all the fun conversation and Bobs antics, the food and service here are very nice. Bob usually takes care of the bar while his wife runs the restaurant, but it's small enough that the service is never lacking for sure. I would recommend this place to anybody who enjoys a funny conversation while enjoying a good drink or meal. The meal I had the most would have been the BBQ chicken which could be had at almost any time of day or night.
Dress Code: None that I noticed, and generally you don't see Bob in a shirt most of the time. It is a totally relaxed bar and Bob really dosen't mind what you wear, as long as you are comfortable.

I did not have much of a night life in Ko Lanta but something that is worth to do is to walk on the beach at nightime.
Beautiful and relaxing.... And it might be romantic too if you are with the right person ;-)
Only make sure you stay safe. Dont venture yourself alone is you are a female. Just in case.
Dress Code: Your bikini and flip flops would be OK

Opium is one of the coolest places to chill out and be-seen-in in Ko Lanta.
A gorgeous place with a big-ish dancefloor, a long bar overlooking the dancers, a pool table outside and lots of nice wooden rattan tables/chairs in the garden, Opium offers a good relaxing time with good music and conversations.
I say its one of THE hip places to be in Lanta as there were masses of mopeds, motorbike taxis and trucks ferrying customers from all over the island for New Year's Eve. Even the local policemen were hanging out here ;-)
We were lucky as we were staying in the bungalow just opposite Opium .. no need taxis to ferry us back ;-))

During my extended stay on Koh Lanta this time, I partied at night mainy between these two bars. The guys from Bamboo Tattoo introduced me to both of these bars and this turned out to be a blast.
The Reggae Bar was located fairly close to my room so it was nice and close. This was a very small bar with a stage and dance area all cramed into this space. The first time I was here there was a live band playing, this was good for the most part. At the end it turned into a jam and in my opinion, this was a good time.
By far the Why Not Bar was my favorite spot to visit on this trip for sure. It was about a 20-30 minute scooter ride from my room (on the nasty roads), but once we got here, it was all forgotten. This bar was also small and very laid back. It was very easy to relax in this place and enjoy the music, and at the end of the night have fun in a jam.
I do want to go back and enjoy the same, if not better experience, at both of these bars on my next trip to this island.
Dress Code: The code for both of these places would be to dress comfortable, and wear what you like.
