Stumbled on this little place while walking through the night market! Fabulous little place with live music most nights! It's run by lovely people who only want to please! If you're looking for a place that sales tasty cocktails and beers, with live music here's the place to go and enjoy an evening that won't break any bank! Enjoy!

I was last in Hua Hin 3 years ago so naturally a lot changes in that time, Retro is one of those things. It is now sort of an American themed place solely on street level. It is a completely different business to the quirky, retro-furnished, people-watching balcony bar with friendly student bar staff that I reviewed on here nearly... More

WOW ! A complete revamp and improvement in the decor. Much more accommodating to sit and enjoy the live music, watching the people walk on by. I will be back again. Thanks for a great evening Ron.

While visiting a friend in Hua Hin, we visited the Retro Bar & Grill. Their Western menu included hamburgers, hot wings, and nachos. We had the Nachos Supreme and some hot wings. They had a beer special and pool was free. We liked it so much that we went back the next night. I most loved their continuous rock &... More

When you're at the Dawn Market, sometimes you just need to take a break from the crowd. We notice this retro bar which has an upstairs balcony over the street, and originally popped in for a beer. Once we noticed the menu though, we ended up going for milkshakes and they were delicious (if a little small). The decor of... More

Nice bar, prices on cocktails and beers are not bad for the area. Sit upstairs to watch the people streaming past in the night market every night. Sometime host little events like photo exhibitions, which can provide a bit more to do in an evening.

Tucked away behind the Night Market stalls, this unusual Cocktail bar/Café offers a carefree retreat from the bustle: The place has an easy charm, housing a scattering of junk shop chairs and sofas. 70's wallpaper and American memorabilia complete the retro feel. It's definitely more shabby than chic; anything from Ella Fitzgerald, through to glam rock, fills the air (... More
