UPDATED for 2018-18 Season
Chai Chet nightlife is either targeted at single men or pretty much non-existent.
If you are not the former, then our two local choices at Malibu and Flora I Talay are outlined below or we suggest you head out for the evening to White Sand Beach, on to Kai Bae Beach or even right up to Lonely Beach.
If you fall into the first group, however, then the northern end of Chai Chet is manna sent from heaven. Starting at the so called Entertainment Complex, with Le Red Bar on its corner and continuing all the way down to the hardware store opposite the garage, one side of the street is lined with beer bars offering you know what. Choices include Airport Bar, Pillow Bar, Firefly, Guzzlers, Get Lucky and King Kong, though The Husband Day Care Center has unfortunately now shut.
Most open from lunchtime onwards, but the VIP Karaoke, which keeps its trade secrets behind closed doors, is evenings only. As to which is the best for entertainment and company, it is probably best to just head on down there and shall we say, suck it and see.
Franky’s Roadhouse is more of a hybrid and shows lots of live sports at its bar in front of Kerdmanee Resort.
Our Favourite Bars – Chai Chet Nightlife
In Coconut Plaza, small bar fronting out onto the concrete with a different ambiance to the normal Chai Chet beer bars at the northern end. Laid back and comfortable, usual cold beers, cocktails, good reggae, friendly owners. Not the worst spot to spend an evening.
