I've spend three nights in Phuket and went to this bar every single night. Even though the bar was a bit empty as it was mid-week and off season, the drag queens gave all they got! Every night the show is difference and they perform different songs in two parts, the first at 00:00 and the second at 01:30. The... More

We came around 2200 thinking we could relax and drink before all the shows. We were the only customer at that time. The staff is really friendly and good service. Came more people around 2330. But still not overcrowded. The cabaret was really good. A really good place. Coming back.

Boat bar was a lively loud atmosphere with great music, I enjoyed the fact it had a dance area if you were that way inclined, I didn't get to stay to long only just over an hour as my friends wanted to move along and sample what else was around, the Paradise complex which was a pity as I wanted...

We loved our night at Boat Bar. The owner was super, coming up to us and greeting us with a shooter. The drag show was simply amazing, and had the entire crowd screaming for more. The toilets were super clean, and the crowd was great. The outside area is also perfect for watching the goings on of the Paradise Road... More
