Henry’s Africa

Koh Samui excellent sports bars have increased quite a bit since I was there in 2007. Most of the beer bars etc have numerous screens showing sport from all over the world. The header for this post show my friend John Martin aka Pothole & I on our first night in Chaweng at Henry’s Africa which seems to be the best bar in town.

 Henry’s Africa is a huge bar with lot’s of girls, some pool tables and TV screens. As you can see Pothole is enjoying himself. 🙂

Early in the evening they offer Chang beer at B79.

Or so they claim.

Opposite Henry’s

There are a couple of small bars struggling to attract customers because of the low number of tourists in June 2016.

Green Mango

This iconic bar nightclub is a little further along the street, it is arguably Chaweng’s most popular nightspot. It boasts of one of the largest dance floors on the  island, Green Mango is large, loud, & very busy from around 11 pm.

A great effect with the green and orange decorations.

A little further around the corner from the Green Mango there are quite a few smaller bars.

Pothole finds another friend.

Of course I’ll buy you a drink my dear. 🙂

Interesting bar

It was a little early and there were no customers, most of the young tourists in Samui don’t go out until around 11 pm. Geriatrics like us are living in a different time zone. 🙂

Hard Rock Cafe

Keep walking back to the main street and you will find the Hard Rock.

 Bondi Aussie Bar & Grill

Another sports bar where the Aussies gather for obvious reasons. I was rather put off by the B210 price for a Jack Daniels. So I went to the bar next door to watch the State of Origin played on June 22nd, which QLD won.

The bar next door.

A glass or red here was only B80.

The Islander

200 meters down the road from the Aussie bar is the Islander where I watched the AFL, next door is Legends, another well known sports bar.

Tropical Murphy’s Irish Pub

Quite a way up the road past Central Festival is Tropical Murphy’s another popular sports bar.

A fairly normal layout, however a funny thing happened as I took this photo, initially the Thai barman was standing towards the front of the bar, but as soon as I raised my camera he ran like a rabbit to get out of the shot. I’m guessing he is hiding from somebody. 🙂

 VW sidewalk bar

There are lots of these great mobile bars where I live in Pattaya.
