One of the better places for music in Koh Samui

A nice bar with good dance music, average Drinks on the expensive side but good staff. Went there several times for a drink or two.

Came here for some drinks,twice while staying in Koh Samui. Liked the fact there were pool tables and easy access from street, with great music. The vibe however was kind of sketchy, with shisha setups and dark setting. Not the cheapest prices either for drinks.

We went here and the drinks did not taste right, so we asked the bar staff what they put in them, they were unbelievably rude which took us by surprise. They refused to make new ones when questioned and then ignored us. There are many other places to visit along the the strip, this is not one that I would... More

I love this bar. Loud pumping music right on the man strip. Gets bust from about 10pm but has happy hour from 4-10pm go entice you in earlier. Good feel and lively. Easy to call into before or after one of the many restaurants surrounding it.

We went here and the music drink and atmosphere was good. The music was accompanied by a guy playing a big drum which added to the great vibe. A good spot again to people watch and chill
