During the green season Khao Lak has little nightlife so it was nice to find a friendly place for a beer, a snack and live music. Outdoor space is limited if you want to smoke but we found a spot after some others left.

Sometimes it's great with music and friendly wait staff. Sometimes it is dead and hard to get wait staff of phones enough to get a drink. Always pricy for drinks.

The drinks are a little expensive (most 180-200 baht), but it's a chill atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, and the live band is good.

A great bar with excellent service and some of the best live music around. The bartenders are friendly, well trained and professional. I visit every time I go to Khao Lak and have never been disappointed. Thanks to everyone at the Snapper!
