This bar is known for its nightly "fights" that break out. I was randomly attacked and robbed by a large group of patrons while minding my own business on the dance floor. I suspect staff was included among my assailants, especially as there are no security cameras for accountability. This visit caused me a week of headaches, in the literal... More

To start the music and bar staff were good. However, after a short while a local man started following my partner round the club and just staring at her constantly. We kept moving but he continued to follow and call his friends over. At that point a white guy got tasered for dancing by the really dodgy security guard, we... More

Smelly place with drunk people. At the same place billiard, football and disco. Complete mess. The worst thing is that everybody smokes, so in 5 mins you smell like ashtray. The worst experience in langkawi. Sad thing to know that there is no better place for night life on langkawi. For nightlife go to Phi phi or Phuket.

We were 5 of us, and felt perfectly home at this sweet bar. We danced our way till the early hours, and the music was great. International and commercial is their specialty, and great crowd! Add this to your list on Lang Kawi Islands. Probably the only dance place in the island town!

If your going here to pick up chicks then you might get lucky, but the drinks are overly priced for no reason and if your into hip hop, this is not the place for you

The bar is located almost 2km from the pantai chenang beach. The space is very limited in the bar and cant accomodate more than130- 150people therefore, During the dance it has high chance of push by others. Crowd is mix. I found rudness in bar members. Overall experience is ok untill the another good bar in langkawi. :)
