Absolutely amazing place. We stumbled upon it after eating at the restaurant next door. It was Thai New Year when we were there so after the fire show there was a massive water fight. Incredible!!

Great drinks, live music, fire shows and wonderful hosts.

Would definitely recommend.

I didn't intend on visiting Koh Lanta, but I am so glad I did. We booked accommodation at Kantiang Bay before arriving for 3 nights and ended up staying for a week! Pete, Junior, Jonny were all very accommodating and always made us feel very special and welcome. We would go down for dinner and not go back up to bed until 4/5 in the morning.. next time you're in Koh Lanta, if you don't plan on going here.. WHY NOT?!

If you are looking for real Thai hospitality then look no further. Good music, ice cold beer, cracking location and a group of guys that can't do enough for you. Junior you are a legend! Fire show amazing too, and make you sure ask for a 'red shot'....

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.
