We loved this place! Friendly staff, great atmosphere. Came back a second night just to enjoy the music one more time. Classic rock songs with a lovely thai accent. You sit around the floor on small cushions sipping your drink, enjoying the music with the beach and ocean right behind you. They have fireshows as well which was pretty fun.

"Rock and roll will never die" Junior and the guys working at The Why Not Bar will tell you and they're right. We were staying at the fabulous Pimalai resort and came upon this place by chance strolling along the beach one evening.
It's one of the most fun, friendly places you're ever likely to go to in your life. These guys enthusiasm is never ending. Serving drinks, cheer leading the crowd singing along with the resident Thai band and at 9pm they do an incredible fire show on the beach that has to be seen to be believed (And there is no additional charge for any of this!).
They remember everybody's name who been there before and you feel like Norm from Cheers every time you arrive.
I've never seen people work so hard at trying to make people happy and enjoy themselves. They're an inspiration. "You rock!" The Why Not Bar. Tremendous.

A great example of a typical Thai beach bar. Sit on the floor on cushions and drink Chang or your choice of cocktail. Staff are fun and they play good rock music. Evening entertainment of a good fire show. if you are staying this end of the Island I would recommend this as the play to sit by the beach drink and listen to good music

They do a mean Margarita - and a good selection of other classic and local cocktails. Lovely friendly staff.

You sit on the floor and listen to classic rock music, while waiting to eat at the next door restaurant!
Try to go on a night when they have fire dancing too!

As we stayed in the hotel next door, we initially considered Why Not Bar a massive disturbance (live music and fireshow). However, when we went there, we discovered that it is actually a lovely and very friendly and welcoming place to relax and end your day with some live music.

The atmosphere is fantastic and the staff really cares about you having a great experience. The cocktails are not cheap for Thai standards, but they are pretty good.

We can also fully recommend the restaurant next door. The prices are ok and the Thai food we ordered there was fantastic every time.
