Kai Bae Beach Nightlife – Top Bars

UPDATED for 2019-20 Season

kai bae beach nightlife koh chang

Kai Bae Beach nightlife is by no means the hub of Koh Chang, but it still has some great bars and venues for you to sup a cocktail, listen to some decent tunes or strut your fancy stuff.

Starting at the northern end, there are a cluster of bars on Walking Street, including Sky Bar, @Marks, Easy Going, Yak Yak and Berlin Bar. All are sociable places for drinking into the wee small hours, with food normally available too. Yak Yak specialises in late night vinyl DJ sessions, so keep an eye out for their flyers.

Just around the corner back on the main road, Boobz, is one of Kai Bae’s longest running beer bars and you’ll find more of the same ilk dotted about the village, with M & M Guesthouse opposite the 3 deluxe resorts of Awa, The Chill and Gajapauri, a particular draw. Le Moon Bar, fresh out of Chai Chet, is on the road down to Coral Resort.

Also down this street to Coral Resort, the Swedish owned Apache Bar is a small, popular spot for a chilled beer, whilst at the very end, Nang Nual Resort has a nightly cabaret show hosted by the katoeys (lady boys). Within Coral itself, Cabana Ocean Bistro is the newest hipster venue on Koh Chang with use of the swimming pool, loungers, salas and a full bar/menu.

Back at the northern end, Funky Monkey Cafe is known for its cocktails and friendly hosts alongside an eclectic selection of teas and other non-alcoholic drinks. Talking of cocktails, Deep Island in the centre near the bridge is an under-the-radar hang-out, where the drinks, food and music (including acoustic sets) are all top-notch.

Also in the same area on the other side of the same bridge, make a beeline to Morgan for all your football and sports needs – big screens, very friendly English host, full bar and decent grub, western and Thai.

Wine Gallery, again towards the northern end, is far and away the best wine bar on the island, with a vast array of decent bottles from around the world, complemented by its excellent tapas menu.

For the two main Kai Bae bars, you need to head to Mojito Lounge and Filou, both at the southern end. Here, you’ll find happy hours, themed nights or parties, with Filou also offering food.

Also at this end of town, Sea Breeze, the bungalow operation, has a nightly live band in its raised bar on the main street.

Sunset – Kai Bae Beach Nightlife

The beach does not go in for bars and restaurants as the other areas do, but the best sundowner is at Porn’s where watching the light change on the offshore islands can be very special indeed. There’s also a very keenly priced happy hour at The Chill. Cabana, as above, is another ideal venue for that early evening session, with DJs sometimes on hand to provide the Ibiza style soundtrack.
