This is the highest bar in Patong, so you’ll get an amazing view of the town below, as well as the ocean in front. It gets busy later on, so come early, enjoy a drink or two, then head into town for a leisurely dinner. They have a restaurant here, but it’s a bit high-end (just FYI). We’d come here for a date night or celebratory meal.
