Nightlife Koh Samui revolves around Chaweng and Lamai beach areas. Chewang has Soi Green Mango, Soi Reggae and Soi Solo Bar. Soi Green Mango is like walking street of Pattaya. Highest concentration of beer bars on Koh Samui is all along Soi Reggae on the peninsular at Chaweng Lake. Soi Solo holds the nightlife for gays and Muay Thai boxing.
Weather it is Chaweng or Lamai beach both have Soi (Soi is Lanes). You enter to find your left and your right full of bars, gogo, nightclub etc.
Soi Green Mango #1 Nightlife Koh Samui
It has more than 11 bars and there are two gogo bars at Soi Green Mango – Dream Girls, Galaxy. Located in the centre of Chaweng, the buzzing beach district that makes Koh Samui the leading nightlife destination in South East Thailand, Green Mango is the heart and soul of upbeat, party all night entertainment on this dazzling tropical island.
Cool tunes, beautiful people and a mega-party atmosphere make this the prime venue for your happiest times on Koh Samui. You can check there website here.
Despite its name, this long running bar/club does not play very much reggae. However, there is plenty of dance music and hip-hop, which played around this huge complex at full blast every night. The party really kicks off in here after midnight and if you want to visit the Reggae Pub before 10pm, it will be almost empty!
Sleek, uber cool and playing great music, there is not much not to like about Bar Solo. A good place to start your evening, make sure you take advantage of their half price cocktails from 2pm to 8pm.
As it starts to get later, Bar Solo gets much livelier with DJ’s playing a range of funky house and ambient chill out tunes. Chaweng Stadium Event Center, at the other end, is also a big draw (particularly on a fight night).
Ark Bar Beach Resort is located right on the beach at the level of the northern end of Chaweng Lake. With two beachfront restaurants, and three swimming pools with two swim-up bars, the place is for full on party.
DJs, live music, fire shows, and pool parties are part of the daily programme at Ark Bar. You can find a variety music playing throughout the day whilst you sit by the pool or on the beach. There are people of different nationalities and ages that are coming here.
Lamai Beach – Nightlife Koh Samui
Swing Bar Samui is the largest beach pub and restaurant on Lamai Beach. You can swing while you drink, fitted with comfortable swings in its interior. It is comprised of two different dining areas: Swing Bar and Swing Bar beach restaurant. You can enjoy the open-air design of Swing Bar with its beautiful 180-degree ocean view or for a real treat dine directly on the beach at Swing Bar beach restaurant. Our menu is the same for both dining areas however; you must try out each one to enjoy the 2 different atmospheres!
Beer Bar Central
Beer Bar Central is the largest concentration of beer bars and nightlife entertainment in Lamai. Located a few hundred metres away from the more renowned Lamai Central Plaza, it consists of dozens of bars along two interconnected streets, all competing for the chance to make your night. The ladies of Beer Bar Central are considerably friendlier than any others in Lamai, and are more determined to get you to sit at their bar and buy them drinks.
This place is forever reinventing itself to keep up with the latest trends, so whenever you visit the place the chances are you will see something new. Part of this reinvention is what helps to make Fusion so popular, along with its two brilliant residents DJ’s who normally play an eclectic mix of acid jazz, funky house and hip hop. Inside, Fusion has a large dance floor and a stylish, yet comfortable seating area. Open until late, the party here can often go on until the early hours.
Shamrock Irish Pub
Another one of Lamai’s popular Irish pubs, Shamrock’s is a firm favourite with expats and tourists alike. A great place for watching live Premiership football, Shamrock’s has live rock music 6 nights a week and a good selection of traditional Irish beers.
There is certainly plenty of craic to be had here and if you are looking for a quiet night out you might want to go elsewhere, as things can get a little bit lively later on at night. Shamrocks also serve reasonable pub grub and has a couple of good quality poll tables to keep you occupied.
If you want your outings to be more on the tasteful side then the Lava Lounge is definitely one of the best places you can go in Koh Samui. Tasteful décor, the friendliest and most professional staff you are ever likely to meet and a lot of talent behind the bar makes any night spent here into an unforgettable experience.
The menu is impressive, with a wine list that would put most 5 star resorts to shame and a diverse offer of beers ranging from German ones to Belgium beers as well as local Thai products. You can also choose from over 40 cocktails mixed with the best ingredients while offering a unique and tasteful show.
