NOTE: Saxophone Pub & Restaurant is now closed.
Saxophone Pub & Restaurant is a recent addition (opened in March 2015) to the bustling dining/nightlife scene of Phuket Town. Under the same management as the long-established (since 1987!) and popular Saxophone Pub in Bangkok, #1 in our Best Jazz Bars & Pubs in Bangkok, Saxophone Phuket shares its prestigious sister-branch’s cosy vintage-style interior, and a taste for excellence regarding live music performances.
Located in the local nightlife heart of Phuket Town, right next to the Nimit Traffic Circle - commonly known as the ‘seahorses circle’, and Kor Tor Mor Club, Saxophone Pub is mostly a magnet for the young jet set of Phuket. Stylish and cool, it is definitely a recommendable place to spend a good time with friends while sipping a few drinks, eating decent Thai and international food, and listening to good music.

Get ready to be mesmerised by the sumptuous settings of Saxophone Pub & Restaurant in Phuket. The design and decoration of the outlet has not been done by half. The front side of the pub hosts an al fresco terrace and, once you pass the massive wooden doors, you can’t hold back a ‘wow!’: the inside is simply splendid and very spacious. The large two-storey building is made of red bricks and features large lead pipes, which gives it an industrial touch. Every details have been thoroughly thought out. Music instruments and famous musicians’ portraits adorned the walls of both floors.
The ground floor hosts the stage on which musicians perform from 19:00 until late. Local artists such as The Mojo Man band (who play on Thu, Fri, and Sat nights from 21:00 onwards) perform regularly here and, on occasions, Thai celebrities such as Mr Chai (one of the best blues guitarist in Thailand) take the stage. The mezzanine-like second floor offers eagle-eye views to the stage, and features a cosy lounge area with sofas. There is also a pool table.
Regarding food, a great choice of Thai and international fare is available at Saxophone Pub & Restaurant – Phuket, from crispy shrimp salad with lemongrass (180 baht) to club sandwiches (150 baht) to steamed curry with fish/shrimp/squid served in a coconut (200 baht) to crispy German pork knuckle (350 baht); there is surely something for everyone’s taste.
The drink-list features the usual suspects in this type of venue. Beers are reasonably priced (Carlsberg at 130 baht) and a special menu is dedicated to cocktails (from 180 to 250 baht). Please note that it may take you a while if you plan to sample them all as there are no less than 92 cocktails in this menu!
Summing up, Saxophone Pub & Restaurant – Phuket is the right venue for a relaxing night out in Phuket Town: good food and good music in a stunning décor. What else could we ask for?
