    SUNSET AT NIGHT-Koh Phi Phi
    1 more image

    On this trip while walking along the beach we noticed this bar during the day, which was good, but at night is when this bar came alive. During the day the bar didn't seem too busy, but we did notice the staff preparing for the fire shows that evening. After setting everything up they promised us a great show, so that night we decided to come back and check it out.
    The show begins around 11:00 pm every night and usually last about an hour or so. The staff doing the show are quite good and are fun to watch. When the show is finished the staff bring out some fire items that the people watching can try if they want. Usually it is a fire ring or rope, but one time we saw them playing with a ball on fire (see tips). To go along with the fire show that these guys put on they also provide good service and drinks for the customers.

    Dress Code: Well the bar is out in the open on the beach, so really whatever you feel comfortable wearing would be a good choice.

    It was a great place on a beach on Phi-Phi island - there was some bar in the midlle of the beach 9not far from the Bay View resort) with music from 60-s or 70-s, on sand there were quite a few mats - where you have a candle while you are lying, listening to music, consume tasty drinks and watching the stars....a milliard, billiard of stars....in combination with the wonderful music - it was an eden on the earth

    Dress Code: none

    Fireshow in the Apache bar
    4 more images

    This place is bigger than most on the island and has a great fireshow early and good music later if you want to dance.
    They are also big on the famous Thai "buckets of joy" where you mix whatever you whatever you want to drink (Whisky Vodka etc) in a small bucket with lots of straws.
    We were drinking Vodka, Redbull and soda.
    Mostly an international crowd and staff for some reason??
    (please note since early 2008 this place has been demolished and is currently being rebuilt)

    Dress Code: No real dress code on Phi Phi.

    Jom Dancing at Hippies
    4 more images

    Hippies bar is just a small restaurant/bar during the day that you might easily walk straight past.
    At night however they make a dancefloor right on the sand of Tonsai bay and the DJ pumps out great dance and Techno music to dance to until late.
    They usually start off with some kind of Fire Show first which is really great.
    Try the "buckets of joy" an get really merry!

    Dress Code: Anything you like ....but not too much it's too hot.

    Carlitos: A bar on the beach

    by nsurati Written Jan 10, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Carlitos is easily the most popular bar at Phi Phi. The bar is right on the beach, so much so that as the tide changes, the waves start crashing at your feet and you will have to shift your table behind.

    The bar is packed most times and serves up the regular cocktails and drinks. The staff is very friendly. They are supposed to have a fireshow everyday after 10 pm, however, when we went there on christmas eve, we only saw a fireshow done by the restaurant next door and I must add that it was awesome!

    Do not miss the signboard outside carlitos giving distances for Rekjavik and Mexico. Quite hilarious!

    Dress Code: No specific dress code is required

    007 Bar: Fancy a change from Partying

    by traceyspacey Written Oct 11, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fancy a change? Catch a film at 007 Bar. This bar is dedicated to James Bond but don't worry you are unlikely to see a James Bond film there.

    Film times are 5pm, 7pm and 9pm. See the daily board outside for what is on.

    The food is tasty and the staff are really friendly. Always smiling.

    island bars: Where to party!!!!!

    by parksie31 Written Jul 8, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    new years eve!
    4 more images

    There are several pubs/bars on the island with big and small establishments. The three bigger ones on the island are the Reggae bar which houses thai boxing which was as authentic as a lui vuitton bag in bangkok never the less it was very entertaining! the second big bar is the irish pub which is basically located across from the reggae bar and Apache bar with views of the bay. There are other smaller bars scattered around the main areas but there are only two stand outs.... Carliots and Hippies Bar. Carlitos is basically a scando bar filled with Swedes etc.... Good music, good location, good drinks and good people. Best of to start the night here as it is the busiest place. As the night moves on Hippies lights up as most crowds move there. Its tucked away but easy to find just ask around, Located basically on the beach you can either relax on the sand or in the bar area. Music is a bit more trance but has a mix of hip hop songs etc.....

    Dress Code: Dress Code is basically wear what u want! i recommend comfort clothing as its an island and no one dresses as they would if they were in a hustling bustling city.

    Reggae Bar: Largest bar on the island

    Thai Boxing

    The Reggae bar complex has 5 bars, pool tables and is good for dancing late into the night. For alternative entertainment, you can see Thai Boxing three nights a week with professional boxers coming down from Bangkok to fight. On Friday night the purse is real and so is the fight. They get some big national names in the high season. Fight night is big and so are the crowds.

    Dress Code: Beach Attire...

    Apache bar stage

    Along ton sai bay, there are a lots of bars, it also has a lots of restaurent which just a step to the beach area. When you walk along this area, you can have a lots of choices for the bar that you likes. I was having drinks at Apache bar, i just stuck at ton sai bay area, it was raining on that nite so i cannot go anywhere.

    At apache bar, they have a lady boy show, they have dance and they have funny show from them too (as i saw they wearing a funny stuff), i haven't had a chance to see it as i got drunk very early on that night, and can't stand that long, so i walk back to my guest house... sorry cannot share much about it.

    when i was there i been trying to look for a monkey bar, but it far from where i was and the road its a bit dark on that nite and it has been rain for about 30 mins or an hour, so i dont dare to walk all by myself to the bar (one of local have scare me with the gost story), Then i've seen the bar during the day, it at the end of the beach, at the otherside of ton sai bay. i have heard that monkey bar is the most favourite bar for the tourist, and they always have a big party. the bar own by an english men and it has been open since march 06 after the tsunami hits. Hope i have a chance to go there for the next trip.

    Phi Phi Town: Great Nightlife

    by AndreSTGT Updated Oct 23, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rolling Stoned

    Phi Phi Town's nightlife is second only to Hat Rin. There's everything from cocktail bars on the beach to open-air clubs with live music, from house to rock n roll.
    My favorite nightlife spot was the "Rolling Stoned". The Thai live band there was excellent, cool audience, and a song repertoire from the Chilli Peppers to Radiohead.
    Another winner is Hippies, a fantastic beach hangout a 10min walk from Ton Sai. They have a fire show every night and a great selection of music (mostly high quality rock and dance).
