Pantai Cenang Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Pantai Cenang

Langkawi isn’t the place to come to for a nightlife scene of clubs, bars and pubs belting out skull-pounding techno electronica music. Still, Pantai Cenang, Langkawi’s most-happening stretch, boasts Langkawi’s best nightlife scene.

On the one hand, nightspots may not party on regardless of the hour like in Las Vegas strip but there are more than a few, mostly-sedate pubs where you can enjoy a cold glass of brew while you watch the sunset.

On the other hand, the strip does feature some of the finest places on the island to get your groove on. Liquor is cheap and you’re sure to wake up the morning after a bit whoozy due to all that duty-free booze. 

Beach Garden Resort Bistro & Beer Garden

If you’d prefer to sip a cocktail in more sophisticated surrounds, try the bar at the Beach Garden Resort Bistro & Beergarden at the beach’s northern end. Shaded by a bright-yellow canopy, this watering hole has the usual selection of liquors but it is one of those places in Langkawi that has embraced the duty-free spirit; drinks are cheap and the atmosphere is incomparable.

Opening Hours: Daily, 08:00 – 24:00
Location: Beach Garden Resort, Jalan Pantai Cenang (10 minutes away from the airport)
Address: Pantai Cenang, Kuah 07000 Malaysia
Tel: (604) 955 1457


Cenang Beach Bar

If you’ve decided to have a roaring good night out, then this bar is a good place to start – the bar opens around lunchtime so you can dive straight into Langkawi’s illustrious duty-free booze. Located directly on the beach; it’s a little shack-like locale serving cold beers and cocktails. The great sunset views from this location is especially rewarding if you come here for a drink.

Opening Hours: 12:00 – 23:00
Location: Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa, Pantai Chenang


Chin Chin Lounge & Bar

Chin Chin Lounge & Bar

Chin Chin is a somewhat-upscale funky Asian bar serving cocktails, liqueurs and wines at reasonable prices. This comfortable and cosy Chinese-style lounge is filled with plenty of antiques to give it a homey feel and is usually filled with patrons enjoying pre-dinner drinks while waiting for a table at Nam Restaurant; try their liqueur-mix coffees.

Opening Hours: 17:00 to 02:00
Location: Bon Ton Restaurant and Resort, Jalan Pantai Cenang
Tel: 604 955 1688


Debbie’s Place Irish Bar

Apart from the big, green shamrock hanging over the entrance, frankly Debbie’s Place doesn’t boast many other Irish inclinations. Located opposite the Malibest Resort along the Pantai Cenang stretch, this indoor bar has a noticeable outdoor-feel; it’s a pleasant place for a few cold beers, you’re given a warm resounding welcome and service is friendly and prompt.

Opening Hours: 17:00 – late
Location: Jalan Pantai Cenang, Mukim Kedawang (next to Champor-Champor)
Tel: 604 966 8700

La Sal Restaurant & Cocktail Bar

Specializing in a plethora of delicious themed cocktails, La Sal is the perfect place to enjoy a fruity drink while watching the sun set into the horizon. If you’ve spent the day enjoying Langkawi’s many exciting water sports activities, baking in the sun or island-hopping, then you’re sure to enjoy a quiet and romantic night with Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and a selection of over 100 wines.

Opening Hours: 07:00 – 23:30
Location: Casa del Mar, Pantai Cenang


Little Lylia’s Chill Out Bar

Little Lylia’s is a cute little reggae bar located between Rafi’s and Nasi Kandar Tomato; although most bars in Langkawi seem to sport this motif, Lylia’s is unique because it oftentimes has jam sessions. You’ll have to squeeze through the alley between the two restaurants to get to it. Try the Langkawi Sunset – a mix of red wine and mango juice – and the Wild Night Out – a mix of vodka, tequila and cranberry juice.

Opening Hours: 10:00 - late
Location: Jalan Pantai Cenang, Mukim Kedawang (between Rafi’s and Nasi Kandar Tomato)

Little Mexican Restaurant & Cafe

Even if you skip the spectacular food here, namely the scrumptious tuna tacos, beef burrito and chicken quesadilla, you’re sure to enjoy the super-hot Little Mexican’s atmosphere. This nightspot is warm and inviting; service is prompt and prices are reasonable but the atmosphere makes it a great place to enjoy its selection of beverages.

Opening Hours: 12:00 – 24:00
Address: Lot 22, Baron Walk, Jalan Pantai Cenang
Tel: +604 955 5100

Oasis Pub & Restaurant

A very popular congenial watering hole with an extensive cocktail selection prepared by a friendly bartender, Oasis is one of the most established businesses on the island. Try the Singapore sling and the Blue Langkawi while the sounds of chill-out jazz music permeate the air.

Opening Hours: 12:30 – late
Address: 838 Jalan Pantai Cenang (next to Charlie’s Motel)
Tel: +604 955 8236


This unpretentious nipah-roofed beach hangout is decorated with handicrafts, kitschy knick knacks, postcards and national flags by previous clients; a testimony to the popularity of the place. You can watch the sunset here along with a cold beer – and a beer it pretty much has to be as unfortunately that’s all they serve but you’re more than welcome to bring along your own alcohol. You can also arrange a private barbecue or get a relaxing foot massage while you sip your cold Tiger.

Opening Hours: 11:00 – 24:00
Location: Jalan Pantai Cenang (close to Samila Beach Hotel & Langkapuri Hotel)
Tel: +6017 569 2072

The Sunset Deck

The Sunset Deck

The Sunset Deck is another nightspot located within the confines of Bon Ton’s perimeters; you can enjoy a selection of cocktails, wines, liqueurs and other beverages along with its tapas/mezze menu. However be aware that even though Langkawi is a duty-free island, The Sunset Deck’s upscale locale and atmosphere results in higher prices for your drinks compared to most other Langkawi nightspots.

Opening Hours: 17:00 - late
Location: Bon Ton Resort
Tel: 604 955 1688
