  1. Boat Bar was one of the bright spots I found in the paradise gay area, overall I found the gay scene dull here. The show is professional, but the small stage means not great dancing, like previous reviews state it is a late night place. Felt safe and fun, although I was careful of my wallet. Drinks were not expensive, a little higher than other bars but there was no entrance fee.

  2. Really comes to life around midnight. Although a gay disco bar there were women enjoying themselves, not 100% men. they have a few cabaret shows, which are entertaining and not too long so i did not get bored. Weekends are the best times to go as singaporeans and malaysians come to Phuket for long weekend breaks. Week days sometimes it is quite especially in low season. A few money boys arrive once the gay bars close in paradise, most are just having fun but some can be pushy. Has funky beat music and often people get on the stage to dance, overall a fun place but keep your wits about you.

  3. One of the bigger and more popular bars in Patong’s gay quarter, Boat Bar is a fun destination no matter which way you swing. A good crowd, arguably the best dance music in Patong and some entertaining lady boys all make for a fun night out. Gets busy from 11 ish.

  4. Good place, Good Show and Good Dance. It is a great gay bar.

  5. It does not get busy until late around 11pm, has good dance music, air con and a drag cabaret show which was better some nights than others
