If you’re looking for a cool bar with good drinks, excellent food, and amazing vibes, Phuket has many of those. Phuket’s nightlife scene has a little bit of everything–from low-key speakeasies to trendy bars. However, rest assured, whichever bar you visit here in Phuket, you are guaranteed to have a fun time. Without further ado, here are some bars we recommend you visit from your Phuket rental.
1. Prohibition Bar
Fans of Prohibition Bar and Juicy Lucy are rejoicing at the news of their merger. The two establishments are now located in one space, which is great if you love burgers and cool cocktails. For fans of a good drink or two, Prohibition Bar is a must-visit. Located in Old Town Phuket, Prohibition Bar is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. Here you’ll find good music, excellent cocktails, and even better company. They have the low-key, speakeasy vibe down and everyone is welcome to have a drink or two. If you’re looking for your favorite beer, they always have a cold glass waiting for you. The place itself is pretty neat with lots of little surprises.
2. Catch Beach Club
Catch Beach Club is definitely a trendy bar but it isn’t too glitzy or over-the-top. This is a great place to lounge in all day, with the infinity pool and gorgeous views of the sea. This beachfront bar is the definition of low-key luxury with great food, an awesome location, and top-notch cocktails, beers, and spirits. If you want the best views, the best food, and the best alcohol in your hand, Catch Beach Club is definitely the place to be. Start your day with a good brunch, a quick dip in the pool, and linger in one of the cabanas while waiting for the sun to go down. We can’t imagine a better way to spend a weekend!
3. Quip Rooftop Bar
If you love going to rooftop bars, you have to drop by Quip. Don’t forget to try their signature cocktails that have the right combination and balance of flavors. Here, you’ll find friendly staff, cozy spaces, and lots of good food and drinks to choose from. A lot of people always recommend this place because the overall value cannot be beaten. A breathtaking view, sea breezes, and cocktails on comfy rooftop seats are the formula for a weekend well spent. All cocktails are delicious and the blue margarita is a fun drink to try!
4. Baba Nest
If you want to drink at a rooftop bar with a sexier vibe, it’s hard to beat the award-winning Baba Nest. It’s located in the exclusive Sri Panwa Phuket Resort and it’s a go-to place for people who want the absolute best for a night out in town. The 360-degree view is simply stunning, the range of drinks on offer is fabulous, and the nibbles are scrumptious. Bubbles are on offer as well, if you’re in a celebratory mood. It’s definitely a difficult place to go to and you’ll find lots of stylish people posting selfies in the infinity pool on Instagram for good reason – the place is just oozing with tasteful decadence.
5. The Library Phuket
It’s called The Library for good reason: Lots of books and a wide range of drinks on offer. This place is another astounding must-visit bar. They have simple drinks and complex recipes ranging from classic, molecular, and signature cocktails that are all on offer daily. The Library opens at about 8 pm. The amount of fine wines and spirits on offer is truly mind-blowing. If you’re a connoisseur and love to drink only the best vodka, whiskey, gin, rum, cognac, and wines, head straight to The Library in Phuket. It’s a great place to hang out for a low-key, cozy night out with friends or a romantic partner.
6. Skylight Phuket
It’s not as low-key and chill as the venues on our list but this place is definitely a cool place to visit. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for updates on the reopening date since they closed the place around March and are set to open again in December 2021. Another highly recommended rooftop bar, this one is definitely for people who want good drinks, excellent food, and space to dance the night away. The grooves are great, the Italian-fusion food is memorable even if you’ve had one too many cocktails, and the whole place is a great place to spend a Saturday night and forget about the week for a few hours. If you’re looking for a place to eat, drink, and have fun, this is it! When it opens again in December, head straight to the nightclub and make sure you book a reservation in advance.
7. Z1mplex Mixology Laboratory
Z1mplex’s main attractions are the colorful cocktails that are works of art in themselves. Head over to their Instagram page to see exactly what we’re talking about! The mixologists, Tom, Nan, and Chat really know how to construct eye-catching drinks. Their cocktails, shooters, and other creative creations are inspired by various places, musicians, and even by video game creators. If you love the mad scientist vibe, away from the hustle and bustle of Patong, this is the place to go to! It’s definitely different and a fun place to bring friends or a date. It’s just 15 minutes away from the Sunday Night Market so it’s hard to miss.
