Kuah Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Kuah

Kuah is a town that doesn’t exactly boast a thriving nightlife – most locals will set up camp at the nearby coffee shops for a cold Tiger at the end of the day. Visitors, on the other hand can brave the mild nightlife scene and head out for some fun, but it must be said that Kuah is pretty quiet when the sun goes down.

There are a few bars in Kuah but they don’t exactly have the same ambiance as the bars along Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah; most of these swanky bars are usually populated with single people out for a night of fun. Truth be told the Kuah nightlife scene leaves one feeling ready for bed long before the stroke of midnight.

In point of fact this town is only notable for its shopping and dining options; there are a few fusion restaurants in the area, fast food outlets in the shopping malls and plenty of Chinese seafood restaurants scattered throughout the town centre. As a result when the sun goes down in Kuah, the restaurants as well as the hotel bars are the truly the best places to go to for a cold pint.

This restaurant serves up excellent Thai-style fried rice; the seafood is unfailingly fresh and the dishes are all cooked in imaginative ways. The menu is quite extensive too so make sure you take your time to read through it before deciding on your main courses. The staff members are neither really friendly nor patient but the food will leave you as happy as a lark.
