A legend in its own lunchtime, the Reggae Bar chugs along year after year with differing approaches to draw punters in. And when they come, this place is heaving with energy, loud music, Muay Thai kickboxing matches.
The pub offers various prizes to entice people into the central ring and have a go and people are by and large willing to do so. There are also organised matches between locals and several fights are quite high stakes between known professionals brought in for the occasion.
Thai Boxing at Phi Phi Reggae Bar
Early evening here is noisy yet lacks atmosphere but later on you could cut the air with a knife. The audience roars encouragement to the fighters and it's all conducive to a pretty memorable night out. Still, getting into a boxing ring while drunk is in the same league as cliff diving in the dark so boxer beware!
The bar also features large-screen TVs showing sports and a full cocktail range as well as the ubiquitous ‘buckets’ which is a fairly effective way of getting into fighting mode.
