Stretching along the six-kilometre Chaweng Beach on Koh Samui’s east coast, the area of Chaweng is known for its fine white sand, dazzling sunrises and tropical party vibes. Offering a variety of paradisiacal dining and drinking options, Chaweng provides a little something for everyone – from relaxed beach bars and high-octane nightclubs to casual beer joints and classy cocktail bars – making the district Koh Samui’s go-to nightlife hotspot.
Nowhere is this more true than around the party area known as Soi Green Mango on the northern end of the beach. Here you’ll find a concentration of nightlife venues (including the ones below!) where you can easily hop from bar to bar to find the best ambience to fit your mood. Before you head out on a night of fun, make sure to check the venue’s social media pages to see what’s going on for the evening.
The Green Mango Club
A Koh Samui institution, The Green Mango Club fits up to 1,300 revellers and, billing itself as a “mega-party atmosphere”, this is the place to go on Koh Samui for DJ hits late into the night. Nestled in the heart of Chaweng, the popular club boasts a funky tree house design with multiple bars and dance floors connected by wooden bridges.
Though the name may make it sound more chilled out than The Green Mango Club, Hush Bar in home to another happening party scene with different DJs spinning a wide mix of house, drum and bass, dubstep, R&B, hip hop and more every night. Here, the young (and young at heart) crowd takes advantage of countless booze buckets and shooter specials while playing pool, hanging out and dancing the night away.
Chica Loca Bar
Though the interior at Chica Loca Bar gives off a relaxed reggae vibe, this late-night bar brings in live musicians each evening followed by DJs playing everything from reggae and rock to house and hip hop. Partygoers looking to keep the good times going can enjoy the bar’s varied selection cocktails, beers and more.
Want to grab a drink without the hardcore partying? This small, casual bar with a touch of Scandinavian solidarity is in the heart of Soi Green Mango’s bar scene but offers a more communal vibe – go a couple of times and you’re sure to recognise some regulars. Sip on a beer as you add your song choice to the night’s playlist and catch up on sporting events on TV.
Tiki Box Bar Koh Samui
Framed by bamboo and lit up with colourful lights, the open-air Tiki Box Bar Koh Samui will first catch your eye then tantalise your taste buds with its inventive cocktails. You won’t find any buckets of Sangsom and Coca Cola here! Instead, we’re talking craft cocktails created by talented mixologists and delicately garnished to perfection. From classic tiki drinks and island-inspired concoctions (complete with fun glasses) to signature cocktails featuring Thai spirits and other local ingredients, you won’t be able to stop at just one.
