Clubs, bars, go go, Phuket
The biggest nightclub is Tiger and you can get free drink with the entrance ticket so practically the entrance is free. Music is dancemusic and place is very crowded. It has two floors, a pooltable and a terrace. Like in meny bars and clubs in patong, there are cool figures and shapes on walls.
These kind of bars you may want to visit once out of curiacity but then you have seen it all. I have a hint that all the bars have the same show. For somebody who dont know I can tell that in bing bong-shows women use their genitals to do all kind if wierd stuff. You also need to be aware that there is always some kind of trick and con to get you to drink more their expencive drinks while wateing for the show to start. And you really may need to wait..
PAtong beach there is a trip of bars on either side of a street that is blocked off for traffic.....music pumping, people dancing and drinking.....a great spot to have a good time and people watch.....some interesting couples (ie expats and thais) hanging about....and lots of opportunity to turn down the offeres of the friendly thia dancing boys and girls (a weird bit of an ego boost..hahaha).....party into all hours of the evening....
We only went one evening (late) and I think that is all you really need...unless this is your thing.
RA RA RA!
Dress Code: Anything.
Friday nights are pretty good at the Watermark Restaurant/Bar/Lounge. Happy Hour(s) are 5.00pm - 7.00pm where you get 50 baht Heinekin Beer and two for one cocktails or mixed drinks. There is a Friday night tapas menu, which is great for snacks or a whole meal. Prices are around 125 baht per dish/serve.
If you wish to have a table for the evening, then be sure to arrive early (around 5.00pm). Tables will not be held in reserve on a Friday evening as people can get annoyed that there is an empty table when they want to sit down. There are lounges there, but I prefer to sit at a table as it's easier to eat.
The music is lively and enjoyable. A 10% service charge has been introduced, so be aware of that. I also advise that you check your bill as we've found many errors over the months.
You should also refer to my restaurant tip on Watermark for further information about the food.
Dress Code: Casual to dressy, depending on your mood.
If you are looking for nightlife in Phuket then Patong is the number one choice.Patong has a lot of bars, discos, karaokes massages and a gogo bars with beautiful thai girls (bar girls).
Although there is a heavy nightlife in Patong, I think it suitable for families with kids anyway because the nightlife is centralised to just a small part of Patong; Bangla Road and Soi Sunset and if you avoid these streets on evenings and nights you will never noticed it.
Dress Code: Casual
I always sit and have a drink at irish bar which located at patong beach road, the reason why is that, there are not much crowd as at bangla road, i just sit there and watching people play pool. It was so nice and relaxing. The location it just opposite of cabana hotel of patong beach road. Sorry i dont have the picture of that.
Dress Code: I like to wear short, small T and sandles... simple and confirtable. People dont really care what you are wearing, coz some people, guy expacially, they prefer to wear shorts only, and their shirt hanging on their shoulder... nice huh
When i first went to this club, its very dark inside because they have a blue light, i wasn't with my sandles, and been advice by a waitress to becareful for a peaces of glass, that is very nice of her. I like this club and i just dancing all over places, and after awhile, i realised that i am the only person who are dancing at the place which i was standing, but i dont care, i like parties. just dancin and get myself dizzy.. hehehe... i like this live band club couse they place house music and full of crowd.
Safari is on the hill just out of Patong on the way to Karon. It is a great outside Disco/Pub that is open all night. It has 5 bars, music, dancing, and lots of people, especially after 2 am when the places on Bangla may close (closing hours only sometimes enforced). So if you are up all night (yeah....due to the time change....that's it) this is the place you will end up!
Dress Code: anything
Tiger is a great place to dance, dance and keep dancing. Mixed crowd of tourists, expats, and locals. The place really gets going after midnite, and has great ventalation (doesn't get smoky) Really fun place. Skip the Banana Club, unless you like loud Techno and cigarette smoke.
Walk down the street and there is countless Soi's. Take your pic. Down Soi Eric was Boom Boom bar owned by a Sweed. Good guy go stop by and have a drink. Has that fun game of wacking a nail into a tree chunk. good drinking fun, just watchout for your fingers... and dont get huslted the first few times by the girls, loser buys drinks....
Dress Code: Once again come as you are
Mistaken a girl for a Katoey or Ladyboy... is just so normal especially in this stretch of Beer Garden, known as Soi Crocodile along Thanon Bangkhla. There is a nice little platform for these ladies to dance which can get quite wild sometimes.... !!!! See it to believe it.
Dress Code: Anything you want.. even topless
Go to the string of bars ... like 50 of them off of Bangla Road in Patong. It's insane what you see here... Disneyland on Acid. Every bar has its own flavor ... And freaks everywhere. Animals everywhere .... Tranvestites everywhere ... Entertainment to the max .... just bring a lotta film....
Dress Code: Anything .... or nothing at all
well coming from the sleaze capital of the world aka pattaya, this place was a much more sedated affair though still typical thai, the bars full of girls hanging about and whistling after the males, it stopped the loud music earlier that pattaya and did not adopt an all night policy like pattaya did in some of the phuket bars and go go's closed about 2am as the thai 'norm'. a drink in a bar would range from 40B (0.80 cent) for local whiskey to 150B (3 euro) for a generously topped up with alcohol cocktail. Beer,local 50/80 B latter applies to go go bar, foreign 70/100B. girls drink aka a coke about 80B. A toned down affair here, plusses and minuses to pattaya
Dress Code: casual, anything really as you are looked upon as a semi god RICH foreigner
This street has always been the centre of attraction in Patong and maybe in whole of Phuket and one could compare it to Patpong in Bangkok. When Tsunami strike, thought it would have taken all the pub away but its not true and they are back in full action even those with their outlet swap away, they are still operating under the stars...!!!!
Dress Code: What ever you please
Situated on the beach road and staffed by the friendliest hosts, who just want to serve you a drink and not marry you!
They sit knitting when they're not too busy and presented her indoors with a scarf on our last night.
A great starting and finishing point, we managed to have a sit down here just about every night.Best bit for me was they sold Strongbow!
Dress Code: any
