Koh Lanta Nightlife – Freedom Bar
For a bar with such a common name, you’re sure to have a not-so-common experience when you come to this fantastic nightlife spot on Klong Khong beach in Koh Lanta, Freedom bar. It’s even an adventure to get to. A large sign proclaims the turnoff the main road around the mid island on the beach side of the road. From there it’s a series of turns down back lane style streets, until finally you arrive at the Lanta Emerald Resort, the bar’s host. Overlooking the pristine Klong Khong beach, the bar is constructed and decorated in reclaimed driftwood, old fishing gear and boat relics. During the day, you can relax on the cushions strewn about beside low tables, or right on the sand as you watch the waves lap onto the shore. A large restaurant blends into the bar, offering everything from Thai to tacos, breakfast to dessert and much more. Pool tables make it easy to socialize and make friends with good-time seekers from around the world. Beers and cocktails flow as the friendly staff prioritize chill, fun times for all patrons.
Nightlife at Freedom bar
The real draw to this bar, however, is what happens when the sun goes down. Famous for its out-of-this-world parties, the Freedom Bar draws crowds every Saturday, every full moon and every half moon. Live DJs pump out tunes from a superior sound system as the black lights reveal glowing graffiti left by hoards of happy guests from days gone by. A body-painting station is right next to the bar, so you and your friends can get in on the action, leaving your own mark on the rustic wood beams and on each other. The beach creates a perfect, natural dance floor so you can feel the freedom with your toes in the sand and the salt in the wind. Fire shows light up the skies, as you choose your lubricant – classic or signature cocktails, Thai beers or Heineken, daiquiris, whiskey, you name it!
There’s never a dull moment here, and you’ll very rarely find it empty. In fact, if you’re looking for a crowded house, this is exactly where you want to be, as Freedom Bar succeeds in throwing some of the best parties on the island!
