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

located in the paradise soi in patong, boat bar is one of the oldest bars in the area; it didn't give in much of its quality and the shows are still a nice piece of entertainment, especially when you like it very late; the bar stays open until 4am and dancing and go on. 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.

Boat Bar was the first place we went to on Paradise due to the reviews and the general information on the internet regarding the bar. It has obviously been around a long time so has had a lot of visitors and feedback. Prices were average for the area and the bar staff were helpful and kind (we made friends with... More

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.
