A little stopping off point

Hi All

We are returning to Batu over christmas .And now that i have seen that Anthony's bar has closed down was wondering if there was anywhere to stop off halfway for a late night drink before heading to Hard Rock Cafe. WHAT A SHAME ANTHONY HAS GONE HOPITALITY WAS GREAT.

Thanks All

We go to the Bora Bora Sunset bar, just to the east of the Big Ship.

Hi millirose,

We enjoy a relaxing drink or three at the LAB Bar right on the beach.

It's located nearby a group of hostels just past the Park Royal heading in the direction of the Hard Rock. From the road, turn right down the first road past the Park Royal and follow the road until you reach Ali's Ferringhi Guest House (the bar is directly opposite). From the beach, it's the last of the bars along the beach strip before the gap between the main Batu Ferringhi strip and the Hard Rock.

Great views of the sunset... Chairs and tables cascading down the beach... Or you can choose to enjoy your drink under the pine trees (well pine like, Sabrina tells me they could also be Sheoaks) up near the bar itself.

They do some tasty cocktails, your normal spread of spirits, and icy cold beers. Prices are ever so slightly cheaper than Bora Bora.

And to add to Lise & Sabrinas post, they make great cocktails.

Just take some insect repellent, if you want to sit on the beach.

Thanks Everyone

We use Ali,s bar quite regular for lunch , never tried it in the evening .There was a bar being renovated in may i'm thinking it may be the one you suggest.

Will certainly give it a try.
