Owner description: Located on the world famous Bangla Road in Patong Phuket Thailand, Monsoon is with out any doubts the place to be to have a serious night out. We serve cold beer, strong cocktails and tasty food at more then reasonable prices but what makes Monsoon a must-go-to place is our Live Bands. We are the best Live Band Venue in Thailand and our promise to you is that you are not going to hear that same old worn out song, we are playing Pop 40 to make you move and dance, see you later!
Useful Information: Food available for purchase

Great bar, we popped in for a drink after hearing the music, and stayed all night. The band/s were brilliant and whole atmosphere was great. Would recommend a visit to here, one of the best bars in Patong

Spent all five nights we were in Phuket in this bar. This review only covers the ground floor as I never went upstairs where they have a DJ.
The drinks are reasonably expensive for Thailand (e.g. 250 baht for a cocktail), but with some good deals like a free shot with your first drink. The place has plenty of tables and a dance floor that is way too small. The staff vary from friendly to verging on rude.
However, despite some issues I am giving the bar 5 stars because the band was so awesome. Kong Siam pay from 7 to 1 every night, followed by a more hip hop style band until 3. They play covers of recent rock and pop songs and old favourites. The three singers alternate leading and providing backing vocals, and their different styles complement each other perfectly. All of them interact well with the audience and create a great atmosphere. The singers have amazing voices and the guitarist and drummer are also very talented. They seem to have a huge repertoire of songs and regularly take requests from the audience. They also have some well harmonized favorites they play most nights.
I am honestly considering returning to Phuket just to see this band. Highly recommend you check them out.

It was brilliant and cant wait to be back.. This was a decent bar (unlike most bars on Bangla Road) with good music and good booze..
The band was simply awesome and interacted well with the crowd.. It is worth just to come to Phuket just for a nite here.. It is that good..

Well done Monsoon you really gave us good memories of phuket

It is hard to find a good bar with a great band and great atmosphere in Patong. Monsoon had it all. Drinks is not expensive. Staffs are very friendly. Most of all, THE BAND IS FANTASTIC. So, This is my favorite bar in Patong.
