This bar is amazing, we loved it. The owners are the nicest most chilled out people on the island and they looked after us so well. We stayed at Centara Villas and went to the cool bar every night and met lots of other travellers there to share stories and have a laugh.
Uns card tricks are legendary and be warned you will never win, and the hospitality is amazing, Doung got us a lantern to release on our last night which was really special.

If you are in the area go to the cool bar as it is truly the best bar in the world! xxx

Thank Ekkkk

A nice get away bar on the beach.
Sells most alcoholic beverages you could want.
Good prices and service, very quaint (not sure about the toilet facilities ;)
Worth a walk to find it but be careful at night although it is lit up nicely.

The cool bar...what can i say that has not already been said?
well if your staying at the Centara villas complex you MUST sample a few drinks in the cool bar,to find it simply head down to the beach at Centara and follow the beach to the left,step over a few rocks and then it appears on your left.
its rather quiet and looks abandoned sometimes during the day but its the nightime this place really comes alive.its a cocktail bar mainly but it serves bottles of beer as well.
i really cannot speak highly enough of the people who run this bar...Un and his lovely lady Doung.
they really are great people who will make you feel more than welcome and they also have a very mischievous side..un with his card tricks and doung will sometimes hand you a creepy crawlie in your change and giggle as you freak out.
their hospitality is second to none....Un took us up to the local fish market and offerd to do us a seafood bbq on the beach which i thought was a great gesture.
thursday nites are cheap cocktail nites 95bht each..my personal favourite was "rum nuts".
if your feeling peckish late at night doung will ring McDonalds and have them deliver whatever you fancy off their menu to their bar on the beach
great nights...great memories....GREAT people..

thank you Mr UN and Doung

The best place to have a drink on the island, Duong and Un are fantastic! Try the blue drink challenge, we were lucky enough to witness big Phil from sheilds set a new record
