I went to Ark Bar for drinks and food a few times while staying in Chaweng and though it was a really good place to go on a night! It's a lovely location and a really chilled out vibe.
The drinks aren't cheap, but drinks aren't cheap on any of the islands really! It has a great atmosphere and they have dj's playing throughout the day.
There's also free barbecues on certain days, so don't miss that!
The only thing I didn't like was the Thai children coming around selling necklaces and adults trying to get you to pay to play connect four, but you get that everywhere and if you say no thank you and stay firm they will leave you alone. But if you do buy them I wouldn't give any more than 25 baht for one! And give up on the first go at connect four because you will never win them, trust me!
