I was reading through the reviews and it came across as a dangerous place to visit. This happened to be the only nightlife recommended by the locals so after confirming with my hotel staff ,we showed up there. My wife and I had a good time. This is a place where the locals hangout and if as a tourist/expat you... More

This place is awful. Small, super hot (not aircon), you sweat all the time, the bar staff are angry, they dont smile and aren´t nice at all. I dont recomend this place. I was passing thru, and a guy touch my behind, so I gave him a big punch, and no one did anything. Bad experience there. Just dont go.

This bar is known for its nightly "fights" that break out. I was randomly attacked and robbed by a large group of patrons while minding my own business on the dance floor. I suspect staff was included among my assailants, especially as there are no security cameras for accountability. This visit caused me a week of headaches, in the literal... More

To start the music and bar staff were good. However, after a short while a local man started following my partner round the club and just staring at her constantly. We kept moving but he continued to follow and call his friends over. At that point a white guy got tasered for dancing by the really dodgy security guard, we... More

Smelly place with drunk people. At the same place billiard, football and disco. Complete mess. The worst thing is that everybody smokes, so in 5 mins you smell like ashtray. The worst experience in langkawi. Sad thing to know that there is no better place for night life on langkawi. For nightlife go to Phi phi or Phuket.
