After the sun sets below the horizon, Langkawi transforms into a nocturnal playground, with rows of bars and lounges offering great views of the Andaman Sea as well as an extensive range of alcoholic beverages. Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah house the best places for after-hours drinks; Pantai Cenang's bustling stretch is popular for its restaurants that morph into cocktail bars while Pantai Tengah's strip is comparably tamer with laidback pubs featuring deejays spinning music and live performances from local acts.
