Nightlife Guide for Haad Rin Beach
While the world famous Full Moon Party on Haad Rin is only one night a month. Here are some more laid back options for the other 29 days of the month. Start your night at one of the 7 nightlife spots and enjoy where the evening takes you:
1. Koh Phangan Full Moon Party
Koh Phangan is home to full moon parties. The best spot is Haad Rin Nok, where thousands of people come during the full moon to party the night away with alcohol…and some drugs.
2. Reggae House
Reggae House is located in Central Haad Rin and offers a comfortable, fun atmosphere. With good reggae music and hammocks for lounging, the Reggae House completes the feel of the place by offering books to read as well as free tattoo consultation. It’s open from noon until late into the night.
3. Lazy House
Another Central Haad Rin bar is the Lazy House. The bar shows several movies each day and is open from 8 a.m. until late at night. Serving generous amounts of good quality food and offering a nice drink menu, Lazy House is friendly and affordable.
Outback is an Australia-loving venue where you can get a good beer and some nice food for lunch and beyond. With a fairly laid-back atmosphere, Outback can be identified by the vines and other plants out front. Outback is open from noon until late and is located in Central Haad Rin.
5. Tommy Bar
The Tommy Bar has a boat and nautical décor accompanied by a relaxed atmosphere. Downstairs is the bar area where you can enjoy a cold drink, while upstairs you can get some good food. On Full Moon Nights, you’ll find that the bar has its own party which attracts a big number of guests and results in lots of loud music. Tommy Bar is open from 10 a.m. until late at night.
6. Kangaroo Bar
The Kangaroo Bar in northern Haad Rin Nok has a unique décor and offers an upstairs lookout spot where you can enjoy a drink and people watch. Like some of the other bars in Haad Rin, it’s a popular place to party like crazy during the Full Moon Parties. The Kangaroo Bar is open from 10 a.m. until late at night.
One of the best spots to party in Haad Rin is Cactus, especially for the Full Moon Night. With loud music and a location very close to the beach, Cactus offers plenty of opportunities for drinking and dancing. It is located in the center area of Nok Beach.
