    What to Do at Night in Bang Tao

    Bangtao is not the best choice if your main goal is to party in Phuket. Having said that, since 2008 Bangtao Beach has seen the opening of trendy new venues such as Bliss Beach Club and Xana Beach Club which offer food, drinks and entertainment - including international DJs till late.

    Tinlay Place, at the Phuket Laguna entrance, has a cluster of bars and restaurants that have a faithful long-term expatriate following. From early evening on you'll find people heading towards Peppers Sports Bar or Tatonka to catch up on the latest news. The Supper Club with its extensive menu also has a good wine list and good music.

    Besides these places, nightlife in Bangtao can also be a chill-out event with a drink at one of the reggae joints at the northern part of the beach.

Bangtao Bars

Bars in Bangtao are ready to serve customers from late afternoon (around 17:00), but it becomes lively much later. All of them lie along the main (small) road passing through various accommodations in the village, including Arinara Beach Resort, Best Western Premier Bangtao Beach Resort and Blue Garden. If you are looking for some low key bars to have some inexpensive drinks every night while on holiday, Bangtao bars will not let you down, with friendly prices and hostesses at such places as Aussie Bar, Green Mango, Yellow Bar and Mama Bar. Interestingly, many of them run a massage shop next or close to their bars, too.
