Top 10 Night Spots in Bangtao
Best Places to Go at Night in Bangtao Beach - Phuket
Bangtao is one of most popular holiday destinations on Phuket Island’s west coast, and this for good reason: from its affordable southern end, luxurious central part to its rather undeveloped northern end, it offers an eclectic choice of venues apt to satisfy any type of visitor. Its nightlife scene is in the same vein and has successfully kept off (until now) go-go bars and other naughty beer bars so popular in Patong Beach.
Our Bangtao’s top 10 night spots’ list reflects the image of this beach’s atmosphere – from stylish beach clubs to popular and friendly pubs to unpretentious local venues, nightlife in Bangtao is always fun and hassle-free.

Dream Beach Club is a stylish, laid-back place to relax and party right on Layan Beach. Part of the world-renowned Dream brand from New York City, it is one of very few clubs in Phuket which is right by the sand and is one of the largest clubs of its kind in the whole of Thailand, featuring two swimming pools, four bars and over 100 comfortable sun loungers.
Replacing the once famous Nikki Beach Club at the very northern extreme of Bangtao Beach, Dream opened in December 2015 after the site had undergone quite significant renovations. While it still targets the party crowd, the atmosphere is much more relaxed. The music selection played by the resident DJ – who is positioned above the swim-up bar in one of the pools – is mostly smooth R&B, jazz and chill-out tracks. Read More...

Bliss Beach Club is a chic and stylish venue located right on Bangtao at the southern end of the beach. It features a long and narrow two-storey open-sided building, a small swimming pool, and a large wooden deck under the shade of palm and casuarinas trees. This is a superb sundowner spot.
Bliss is one of the busiest beach clubs in Phuket due to its multi-faceted assets: Bliss’s Australian chef serves top-notch cuisine, it is a family friendly place by day with games for the little ones, and by night it can be a very relaxing place for a conversation with friends around a glass of wine; or an open-air movie theatre; or a bustling disco rocked by internationally recognised DJs (such as Boy George, who played at Bliss in 2013).

The venue reaches a climax on Wednesday nights with its extremely popular pub quiz.

Orange House is a cool bar and restaurant located right on Bangtao Beach between Angsana Laguna Phuket and Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket resorts. Unlike its prestigious neighbours, Orange House is a groovy, unpretentious, and affordable venue serving excellent western food (it is famous for its Scandinavian and American breakfasts).
Built in a style blending local (thatch-roof and wooden beams) and contemporary (orange concrete walls) styles, the place was originally a small dive centre that has extended its domain to become a charming coffee-shop, a place where to meet friends around a drink in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.

Siam Supper Club is a fine dining restaurant located on Tinlay Place, a pool of looked-after eating houses located toward the entrance of Laguna Phuket property. View from outside, the venue boasts a modern and rather cold appearance with its white, straight-lined architecture and its large, bluish neon-sign, but stepping inside, it gives a total different feeling: warm and cosy décor and furnishing stylishly dim-lit, no wonder why the venue is so long-established and famous in Phuket.
In this luxurious environment, guests can indulge themselves in excellent western and Thai cuisine, expertly mixed cocktails, and cool and soft Jazz music played live by talented musicians. Siam Supper Club has similar design qualities to a Gentleman’s Club, but don’t worry, it is open to all. Read More...

Casuarina Beach Restaurant and Pub is the place for this exotic mix of delights and, the saying; 'if it's worth doing, it's worth doing well' could have been written for Casuarina. Read More...

Located toward the southern end of Bangtao Beach, Blue Siam is a charming and well-thought out venue from its entrance on Haad Bangtao Road to its elevated wooden decking on the beach.
