We found their street sign over a closed garage door. After calling the number listed in their Facebook it seems that they have moved to Kata. It's a shame, we were looking forward to spending the night here.

If you are having a good night out pop in for a few cold ones and some good live entertainment, the band is good and the drummer has the biggest smile in Karon, the bar is a friendly place - enjoy !

Owner is a nice guy. Easy to chat to and will come play you at pool if you fancy a game. Good for a cold beer in the day or live music at night. Friendly bar staff as well
