Few things are as pleasant and rewarding to do at the end of a long day of sightseeing and having fun on a much-deserved holiday in Patong than simply kicking back with a cold beverage in hand and watching the sunset over Patong Bay.

But the question always comes up as to where to find the best bar to enjoy the sunset while enjoying a comfortable place with a great ambience. We’ll suggest some places in and around Patong that offer, not only a great view of the sunset but an ample choice of drinks and cocktails, comfortable surroundings and warm, Thai service that will add to the pleasure of watching the sunset in a tropical paradise.


Joe’s Downstairs

This restaurant and bar is perched atop granite boulders along the shore of Patong Bay. It’s a peaceful and idyllic spot to watch the sunset while by serenaded by the gentle sound of the water lapping up against the rocks. 

The place has long been a favourite watering hole of Patong’s trendy and chic, with a great menu of artfully-crafted cocktails, wines, and beers. Sundowners are invited to stay after the sun has set to enjoy the talents of Chef Aaron Hooper as he prepares dishes that have put Joe's Downstairs on the list of every gourmet visiting Patong.


Wassa Homemade Bar

Wassa’s offers a stunning, panoramic view of the entire town of Patong and the bay beyond. It advertises itself as the best place in town to watch the sunset, and they have the view to back up their claim.  

They offer Thai and international dishes as well as a full range of bar drinks and cocktails. It has always been a popular place with both tourists and locals to spend a few hours at the end of the day, so you should book a table in advance of your visit.


The Surface Restaurant and Bar

The Surface is a rooftop venue located right along Patong Beach, giving you a front-row seat to a beautiful tropical sunset. The 400 sqm rooftop location makes the hustle and bustle of the street fade into the background as you relax to top 40 hits and classic rock and sip one of the drinks from a full menu of cocktails, mocktails, wines, beers, and champagnes.

The menu focuses on Asian-western fusion dishes combining the fresh seafood of the Andaman region and imported meats from Australia with Asian accents and flavours.


The 9th Floor

Located on the ninth floor of the Sky Inn in Patong, the 9th floor is more of a restaurant than a bar, but they still offer a wide-ranging complement of fine beverages, as well as one of the best views of Patong bay in the city.

If you care to stay for dinner, you'll be delighted with the level of the Mediterranean cuisine they offer. Everything from seafood to choice meats is on offer with the servers happy to recommend special dishes.


The Kee Sky Lounge

Located on the rooftop of The Kee Resort and Spa, the Sky Lounge offers panoramic views of Patong bay and a list of 29 cocktails, along with the requisite wines and beers – all you need for an evening of watching the sunset with a drink in your hand. 

The Sky Lounge is on two levels, affording around 200 sqm of seating. The second level provides the best views and has a few tables, which allows a bit of intimacy.
