Last show at 2am. All drinks... More

i go to the other bars, but I always end up at Boat Bar and the shows are the best in Patong! The staff is amazing and friendly! Happy hour before 12, but it really fills up after 2, when most of the other places close.

We frequent this bar every evening we were at Patong Beach. It's a great gay nightclub without attitude. The last show starts around 2am and it is normally flooded with people as most bars closes in the Paradise Complex. Great place to dance off those excess alcohol or just kept drinking.
