Expensive

I popped in here purely to see if Mary Jane was here, she was and at 1000thb i thought it was decent but walking along the beach a few days later I thought id check out a different place to compare the price and it was 500 for exactly the same amount and stuff. I also took my girlfriend here for a drink and they were possibly the worst cocktails I've ever tasted, I ordered a whiskey sour and it had soda water in it and barely tasted of alcohol for 200baht and my girlfriend had amaretto sour which tasted almost as bad but some how stronger than the whiskey sour. There are way better bars in Koh Lanta but there is one a bit further up on the beach, I can't remember the name but on the sign outside there's a big old ganja leaf and the guy who runs the place is called Joey. The second time I went there they laughed at me because I was wearing a Cardiff City shirt as I'm a fan and told me Cardiff were tihs but I'd still rather go to that place even if they weren't only joking.

What’s a mushroom shake?
Mar 2020 • Couples
I got a mango shake. Nobody in this sketchy dive even knows what a mushroom shake is. Maybe it was the police truck parked outside. The bar staff were too busy on their phones to help us out anyway. Mushroom shakes are a myth.

Avoid.
Dec 2019 • Friends
Ordered a bucket cos the beer was riddiculously expensive. Bucket said its a Mai Tai with Captain Morgan and so on. (Well the drinks we got were really different colored as they should.) Next morning i feel the petrol burn in my gut. Same as everywhere in Asia when u drink the local cheapest alcohol, which is the worst thing you can do to yourself because its not pure in anyways. Selling Lada with the pricetag of Lexus.

Mushroom shake no effect
Dec 2019 • Couples
I paid 700 baht for a mushroom shake and it had no effect at all.

Go next door to mushroom bar. Staff are rude but shakes are half the price

Amazing bar
Nov 2019 • Couples
So we went to freedom and had a shake, I can’t rate it highly enough. It was the perfect place to just sit and soak up the amazing view. They played excellent music the whole time we were there that really complemented the experience and the staff were very chill - which is important when having a shake I feel. Had another off menu special and it was a much better smoke than other places further up the beach.

There bar shared a plot with a restaurant that served excellent food. After our shake we sat a table out side the restaurant and had a great meal, the Khan soi is a must! The food was actually very reasonable as well - it seems like they occasionally do 20% off for breakfast, which is another bonus.

Most expensive drinks on the island
Nov 2019 • Solo
It’s a great place if you love to pay the highest prices for beers or cocktails on the island and listen to horrible music.

Run away !!!
Nov 2019 • Friends
Run away from this place as soon as possible.
Let me tell you how customers shouldn't be ever treated.
When arriving, and even if the bar is totally empty, you won't have the choice to seat wherever you want. Price list is ridiculously expensive for that type of laidback place on the beach. Not to mention the so called happy hour that was running only for 2 cocktails (mojito and Long island Ice tea) and beer on the price of 180 baht instead of 250.
We decided to order 2 mojitos, 1 long island and a small beer.
We were extremely surprised to be asked to settle the bill before receiving the drinks, which we obviously refused.
Drinks came one by one, and believe me, it took 25 minutes to get all of them. We thought about leaving many times but I was curious to see how long it could take. I haven't been let down. I finally realized what took so long. When one bartender was struggling to make some classic and easy drinks, all the other staffs, 3 guys, were just sitting at the bar, looking at him, laughing and relaxing.
Cocktails were good but nothing extraordinary though.
Surprisingly, the bill will arrive in a blink of an eye. Classic. Not the change though, that I had to get by myself to the cashier after up to 10 minutes wait.
I am restaurant manager in Bangkok and deal with Thai staff all day long, i know that it isn't the easiest staff to manage but there is a clear lack of professionalism and management out there, things need to be shaken up in order to raise up standards.
We were extremely happy not to recommend and to deter customers that wanted to come into the bar while we were leaving.
It's quite a nice place actually, with a nice view for the everyday's sunset and a very enjoyable layout. But one should never take anything for granted ... No wonder why it was the only empty bar on the beach ....
One more time, do not go there.
