Phi Phi Nightlife

  • 10 Best Bars in Phi Phi Island

    Best Places to Go at Night in Koh Phi Phi

    The best bars in Koh Phi Phi Don are spread equally over the island’s three main areas: Tonsai Village (the main urban centre), Tonsai East, and Loh Dalum Bay. Most of the bar options in Phi Phi go for two contrasting approaches: either the laid-back vibe or a pumping party atmosphere. However, some bars, as you shall see, succeed in wrapping both ambiences up in one venue.

    A laid-back night out in Phi Phi is usually spent on the cushions of a bamboo and thatch bar set right on the beach with unobtrusive music and a few beers, while the more frantic nights out involve loud music, dance floors on the sand and a plentiful supply of bucket cocktails (potent spirits with coke/energy drinks). There really is an option for everyone in our top 10 bars on Phi Phi Don Island!

    Phi Phi Reggae Bar is one of the longest-established night spots in Tonsai Village. Located in the eastern part of the village, right between Tonsai and Loh Dalum bays in proximity with Jordan’s Irish Pub, Phi Phi Reggae Bar is a large venue featuring loud music, sport events broadcasted on a sizeable screen, five bars with talented and friendly bartenders, pool tables, and in the centre of everybody’s attention: a Thai boxing ring.

    Muay Thai (Thai boxing) is the main attraction at Phi Phi Reggae Bar: every night professional demonstrations are held, but the climax is reached when often inebriated spectators are invited to fight in the ring (in exchange for a few more drinks); the association of alcohol and friendly fighting (at least at the beginning) has no limit in matter of fun – viewed from the audience.

    • Opening Hours: 17:00 – 02:00

    Sun Flower Beach Bar & Restaurant
    Sun Flower Beach Bar & Restaurant
    0

    Sun Flower Beach Bar & Restaurant is a very relaxed venue to spend the evening. Located at the northern end of Loh Dalum bay, right on the beach, it features salas, hammocks, and mats set around a bamboo and thatch building in a pure hippie-era spirit. The view to the bay is splendid – great sundowner spot – and the ambience could not be more laid-back.

    Serving excellent curries, Thai and western dishes, Sun Flower is renowned amongst the expat community on the island for the quality of its food. In the evening, fire shows and acoustic live music are performed. Prices are affordable, and Sun Flower is the perfect place to escape from its noisy southern neighbours (Slinky and other Apache beach bars).

    • Opening Hours: 09:00 – 02:00
    • Location: Viewpoint end of Loh Dalum Beach (northern side)

    Carlito's Beach Bar & Nightclub
    Carlito's Beach Bar & Nightclub
    0

    Carlito's Beach Bar and Nightclub is a long-lasting, buzzing night spot enjoying a great location along the path leading to the eastern end of Tonsai Bay. Set in two buildings (one on each side of the path) it is just the right place to party like in an open-air disco to the beat (reggae, house, oldies) of Thai and international DJs.

    In the afternoon, the place is more relaxed and you can practice ‘poi’ (unlit-fire chain handling), yoga lessons, checking your mails (free Wi-Fi) or play a game of backgammon; at night the beat changes drastically with loud music and fire shows (at 22:00) on the beach. Expertly mixed cocktails and ‘buckets’ heat up the atmosphere until late.

    • Opening Hours: 12:00 – 02:00
    • Location: On the way out of Tonsai Village towards Tonsai East and Long Beach

    Slinky Bar
    Slinky Bar
    0

    Slinky Bar is a large open-air disco set right on the beach offering punters a cool choice of entertainment opportunities, including dancing, a mechanical bull ride, face and body painting, fire shows, fire skipping and fire-limbo - just don't get too drunk and overestimate your flexibility when participating in this one!

    Cocktail buckets and other drinks are affordable, and the ambience is quite mad - yet friendly. Slinky Bar’s sound system is huge and the music played here is in phase with the trendiest European clubs. The bar and other buildings are made of the usual wood, bamboo and thatch materials, and regarding décor, some gigantic phalluses are erected from the sand. Full, half and black moon parties are celebrated in style at Slinky Bar. Toilets can be used for a small fee.

    • Opening Hours: 16:00 – Late
    • Location: Central Loh Dalum Beach

    Hippies Bar
    Hippies Bar
    0

    Hippies Bar is some kind of an institution in Tonsai East: originally opened at the end of the nineties, entirely destroyed by the tsunami in 2004, it reopened at its original location in 2011. Set right above the beach on a terrace filled in with low tables, mats and cushions, and surrounded by building made of drift-wood and other recycled materials housing the bar, televisions broadcasting live sport events, and a pool tables room, Hippies Bar is the perfect place to hang on and chill-out after a busy day snorkelling or sea kayaking.

    Serving Thai and international favourites at affordable prices, as well as a long-list of cocktails, Hippies Bar becomes very lively after 20:00 with live music performances, fire shows, DJs, and more. The venue is a good and slightly more laid-back alternative to the madness in action at Slinky and Apache Beach Bar on Loh Dalum.

    • Opening Hours: 09:00 – late
    • Location: On the beach by Phi Phi Villa Resort

    Banana Rooftop Bar

    Opened since 2008, Banana Rooftop Bar is a unique venue in Tonsai Village; set on the roof of the Sombrero Mexican Restaurant located in a small lane on the right just after Capulatte coffee-shop on the path to Loh Dalum, Banana is accessible via a wonky spiral staircase (good luck to inebriated people to take the way down). The terrace of the building has great views over Loh Dalum – including stunning sunsets - and houses half a dozen of bamboo salas provided with cushions and mats.

    Two bars – also made of bamboo and thatch – are in charge of mixing cocktails (all cocktails are 120 baht) and serving beers and spirits. Music, fire shows and even hula hoop contests are performed in the evening, making the venue a great place to party.

    • Opening Hours: 16:00 – Late

    Rolling Stoned Bar is one of the most popular night spots in Tonsai Village. Established in 2001, it hosts the best live band that performs in the entire Phi Phi group of islands (at the same time only Koh Phi Phi Don is inhabited): pop, blues, rock, hard rock, reggae these musicians are able to play any style right for the great pleasure of their cheering audience; they even enjoy an occasional jam with musically skillful punters.

    Set at the back of Phi Phi Reggae Bar’s lane, the venue has – as most of the night joints in Phi Phi – a hippie-touch with low wooden tables, triangle cushions, and dim lights. It also hosts four pool tables. Drink prices are in the same range as other night spots in Phi Phi, and remains affordable.

    • Opening Hours: 17:00 – Late

    Combining excellent Thai and international (mostly French) food, excellent cocktails, and a laid-back atmosphere typical to tropical destinations, The Cliff Bar is indeed a great place to hang out. Under French management – Angelo is a long-established figure in Phi Phi, he has run Mama Restaurant in Tonsai Village for about 15 years - The Cliff is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed evening listening to the local stories told by the many expats visiting the venue while sipping a good glass of wine until late.

    Carpe Diem is another of these long-lasting venues in Phi Phi offering a great place to chill-out in the evening. Located on Tonsai east beach, it features a large open-air terrace partly shaded by a large tamarind tree, and a two-storey wooden building housing the bar and at the second floor, a cool terrace with Thai cushions and low tables overlooking Tonsai Bay and offering a great view to Koh Phi Phi Leh to the south.

    Thai and international delicacies – prepared at the neighbouring Phi Phi Villa Resort – are served to hungry punters (Carpe Diem is also one of the restaurants catering for Phi Phi day-trippers at lunch time), and every night Carpe Diem presents a fire show. With cool live music, beach dance parties, and relaxed ambience, Carpe Diem is the good choice for a great evening and for mingling if you travel alone.

    Apache Beach Bar
    Apache Beach Bar
    0

    Apache Beach Bar is the second largest open-air disco-like venue on Loh Dalum beach. Pretty quiet at the end of afternoon it starts to get frantic and crowded after 21:00 with young folks looking for party until late. A wooden stage surrounded by plastic chairs is set on the beach offering fire dancers to perform their show for the audience.

    Buckets filled in with spirit plus coke plus energizing drinks (Red Bull, M-150 and the likes) heat up the ambience to the loud and heavy beats of techno and house music. Paradoxically, Apache Beach Bar also hosts rooms in its Apache Beach House, right next to the dance-floor (the beach), so the place is indeed dedicated to party-animals who crash in bed only when the music stops…

    • Opening Hours: 17:00 – Late
    • Location: Central Loh Dalum Beach
