Timber HutPhuket Town, Phuket Town & Central
Timber Rock (nee Timber Hut) on Yaowarat Road in Phuket Town is a Thai and expat locals have been filling this old clubhouse every night for nearly 23 years. They gather at long wooden tables on two floors, converge around thick timber columns, swill whiskey, and sway to live bands that swing from hard rock to funk to hip-hop with aplomb.
A red-brick building, Timber Rock’s unimpressive facade gives way to a busy, energetic nightspot that is approaching capacity most nights of the week and is positively rammed at weekends.
Drinking and dancing at Timber is spilt across two levels with the majority of the action happening on the ground floor where the resident band, complete with dwarf, and house DJs take it in turn to whip the crowd into a frenzy playing a mixture of Thai and Western classics. Upstairs is pretty cramped as people jostle for space to shake their funky stuff along the railings that overlook what’s happening below.
The crowd is a mix of Thai and Westerner, with the majority being locals, but the atmosphere is friendly and not intimidating for foreign visitors.
Most Timber goers settle themselves in for the night with a bottle of whiskey at a table and nod their heads in time to the music.
Look out for the complimentary bowls of congee that get handed out at the end of the night.
