I simply love the music at the roadside Bar Solo. You can enjoy a cold beer, mixed drink, wine or cocktail, listen to the great sounds and people watch, all at the same time, in the busiest section of Chaweng Beach.

You can't help but have fun here. Great music and atmosphere. Drummers are really good. Events are always well supported and very enjoyable! Shisha pipes to hire. Nice toilets.

We went for the UK drum and bass pioneer Goldies show. The sound was great. The atmosphere was rocking. The beer however was expensive. So I would return for an event but would not go for just drinks.

One of our favorite places that we visited in Koh Samui - the music is amazing. The drummer (don't remember his name) is incredible and we went back a couple of times during our 5-day trip.

Great location. Reasonably priced drinks. Mix of all genders, not a gay or ladyboy hang out [we are a straight couple] Fun place for a night out, especially on the promo nights!

Nice clean place with a large variety of drinks. Once you sit there and enjoy the music you'll discover it's a hangout for ladyboys and male-to-male. Just take it for what it is. You wont be the only straight person there anyway. Like any other place you hang out, just show a possitive attitude. :-)
