A surprising bar in old Phuket
The Library Phuket is unassuming from the outside; it looks like an anonymous old-fashioned library and is always empty of guests. If, like us, you know there is a bar on the end of the street, but you don’t really know what to expect, but once you open the back door, it’s quite a surprise.
The Library used to be located at the Quip Hotel at the other end of Ratsada Road. Still, you will now find it just next to the fountain waterfall at the other end of the street, just next to Casanova Italian Restaurant.
The Library is a popular venue late at night with the young local crowd and a few expats. The cocktails are superbly executed, and the bartenders enjoy demonstrating their juggling skills on the music played by the DJ.
The Library Signature Cocktails start at 250 baht:
Three Kingdom (Tequila, Vanilla, Oolong Tea, Lime, Apple, Passion Fruit),
Ka Nom Thai (Vodka, Pandan, Palm Sugar, Apple Syrup),
Look E-San (Vodka, Tabasco, Pineapple, Lime, Egg White),
Little Witch & Magic Lamp (Gin, Apple, Cinnamon, Cucumber, Lime, Egg White),
Street Art (Rum, Jasmin, Butter Scotch, Palm Sugar, Egg White),
Ko-Pe (Tequila, Coffee, Vanilla, Egg White).
The Shooters cost 250 baht, the classics 260 baht: Mojito, Penicillin, Cover Club, Pina Colada, Sex on the Beach, Margarita, Midori Sour and Whisky Sour and the timeless cocktail are at 300 baht: Negroni, Dry Martini, Manhattan.
