Pantai Cenang is widely known as Langkawi's busiest nocturnal playground, with rows of bars and lounges offering great views of the Andaman Sea, not to mention extensive food and drinks menus. Clubs that belt out skull-pounding dance music are practically non-existent in Pantai Cenang - night dwellers instead opt to spend a cool evening with their choice of ice cold beer, strike up a conversation with fellow tourists or locals, listen to some good music, catch the latest match on LCD screens or simply enjoy the sunset with while sipping on a delicious cocktail. From funky Asian-styled bars to classy Mediterranean-themed establishments, check out our Top 10 Nightlife in Pantai Cenang below.

The Sunset Deck, located in Bon Ton Resort, is a tranquil establishment that offers a satisfying selection of cocktails, wines, liqueurs and other beverages along with its tapas or mezze menu. With a massive open-air seating area on a wooden platform that is surrounded by palm trees and coconut trees, diners are treated to a lovely view of the sunset as they sip on their favourite cocktails. Served from 17:00 to 19:00, diners can choose from seafood, meat or vegetarian tapas or mezze - we highly recommend the Mezze Plate of Dips, which consists of hummus, chermoula marinade and dukka, with a side of rocket and preserved lemon salad served with pita and Turkish bread. Do note that The Sunset Deck’s upscale locale and atmosphere results in higher prices compared to most Langkawi nightspots. Read More...

Debbie’s Place Irish Bar is a humble watering hole that is situated opposite the Malibest Resort along the southern end of Pantai Cenang. Apart from the big, green shamrock hanging over the entrance, this indoor bar does not actually boast many other Irish inclinations. However, it has a noticeably outdoorsy feel, making it a pleasant place to catch up with friends over a few ice cold beers. Food-wise, the bar serves a mix of Malay and international fare such as fish and chips, beef rendang, and broccoli mushroom with oyster sauce. A signboard outside bears the phrase 'One hand wonder woman', aptly describing owner Debbie’s great showmanship when it comes to mixing cocktails with just one hand.

Little Lylia's Chill Out Bar is a quaint reggae bar which is accessible via an alley between Rafi’s and Nasi Kandar Tomato in Pantai Cenang.

Open daily at 10:00 and welcomes customers until late into the night, guests can enjoy music performances from 21:30 until 00:30. With a beachfront view and laidback ambience, Little Lylia’s Chill Out Bar is arguably one of the busiest nocturnal haunts in Pantai Cenang.
