Your Phuket rooftop bars must-do list!

Phuket rooftop bars are just a handful, but the trend has started and is here to stay, especially after the success of the many Phuket Beach Clubs; people are always attracted by bars with a little something on top, you just have to look at the growing list of Bangkok Rooftop Bars to see how popular this way to end the day is,

There is a law in Phuket that says that construction within 200 m of the beach cannot be higher than a coconut tree (12m). This law was passed about 15 years ago, which explains the few exceptions, such as the Royal Paradise Hotel, Patong Tower and Centara Tower in Karon.

On the other hand, Phuket has lovely hills, and many small bars are taking advantage of the panoramic views up there. Most of them won’t cost you too much. The most famous hillside bars are Baba Nest in Cape Panwa, After Beach bar on Kata Noi and Heaven Rooftop bar near Kata Noi beach.

19. Quip Rooftop Bar

Quip Sky Bar Rooftop

Quip Sky Bar is a lovely rooftop bar and restaurant at the top of the Quip Hotel in Phuket town. The hotel is original and fun to visit, with an old Austin car used as a reception counter. Since it is close to the historical streets of Phuket Town (Thalang Road, Dibuk Road and Phang Nga Road), it is an excellent way to cool down with a drink in an unexpected location. Don’t picture a sophisticated Bangkok rooftop bar here; it is a large wooden platform with incandescent lights hanging from wooden poles and comfy bean bags to crash in and look at the sky above. While the view from up there (and it’s not high either) is not particularly impressive, the result works well. Read more
