We had a pretty awful dinner at one of the restaurants serving at tables by the sea and as we were finishing noticed the Sunshine bar right next door. The music was loud and everyone seems to be having fun so we grabbed a table and were soon brought cocktails and beers. There was constant dancing and singing from the... More

Sammy has great service and Heart. Relaxing place during the day. This place serves privacy and commitment to the customer if you have respect.

Another amazing tip from our home owner, this guy made our holiday. This bar on Rawai beach might look offering too much transgression for foreigners, but it's just a very funny show off of the staff, performing dances and jokes with customers. We didn't want to be part of this side of entertainment of Phuket, but this place is really... More

Good fun bar with excellent service for any body on holiday. It does get a little boring and noisy after a while. They are good with the drinks service no waiting even when the bar is full. Staff are very pleasant and dance all night long. Good experience for a holiday maker and suitable for children.

There is lots of dancing and singing and patrons are encouraged to join in the fun like climbing the pole and ringing the bell and score yourself a free drink!!

This bar has got to be one of the most entertaining places I have ever stopped off for a drink. The staff are so friendly, lively and energetic, there is always something to look at or laugh at, and you are well looked after from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. The owner is a raucous,... More

Sunshine Bar in Rawai is a great bar. The ladyboy bar staff sing and dance all night and encourage patrons especially teenagers to join in with musical instruments, head wear and novelty glasses etc... The drinks are really cheap and if you can climb the pole and ring the bell you will get a free drink!!

This bar is fun fun fun. The girls/ladyboys dance and sing all night long and put on a much better show then the famous Simon Caberet and all for no cost. They play songs that everybody knows and can sing along to and they supply you with tambourines and head wear so that you really get into the fun.
