I had to say that was really nice to be welcomed here by the management. He noticed that we have not been before and came to introduce himself and made us feel really valued. The waitress was absolutely stunning, nutty as a fruitcake and the highlight of my night visiting bars in Paradise complex. Brilliant!!!!

A show with little a lot of foreign language (Thai, Etc)lipsync. Literally went inside then went out after 3mins. Crowd is from late 30s up. Go to Zag club if you want to watch great show with great music!

If you are too much a party animal don't go here. If you want to relax and enjoy a lovely time with your partner or friends then this is it. The owner is absolutely friendly and gave us a free round of tequilas. The beers and drinks are not badly priced. I loved the cabaret shows. The boys there are... More

Boat Bar is known to be the oldest bar in Paradise and also the one that closest the last. They also have some good happy hour deals as well as great ladyboy performances! Gets crowded from 11pm onwards so you'll want to get a table earlier.

We've all been there, it opens later than the rest, the drinks are always weaker, and the clientele are always a bit cheaper. Here is the Phuket version of that type of bar. It's a nice place, and people are friendly enough, but there's plenty of better places to visit. The shows arnt as well rehearsed here either.

We went here as Kiss bar was quiet and people tend to go to Boat bar after Kiss. The show was ok, but it was good fun outside on the street and everyone was friendly. I ordered a round of drinks at the bar and before I could pay, the waitress was already taking them out to my friends.... Top... More

This happened to be the best bar ever! Loved spending time there, everyone is very friendly. Loved your Margarita cocktail!! The show is good and always new numbers, costumes are expensive, dancers are cute, divas are beautiful!) Looking forward to come back and see you all! Thank you very much!

A visit to the Boat Bar is a must-do in Phuket if you'd like to experience a drag show and don't want to go to one of the more packaged 'cabaret' venues. It's primarily a club for men and the men who love them. But also straight-couples are very warmest welcome. Khun Daeng - the owner is one of the... More

This is very much a gay bar; however they don't discriminate and straight men and women are welcome. It is happy hour up until midnight so my friends and I dropped in at about 23:45 to make the most of the cheap drinks and enjoy the midnight cabaret (there's a second show at about 2am). There are some male backing... More
