Filou Bar: Enjoy the Thai Nightlife in a Relaxed Environment

Ideally situated on Kai Bae’s southern beach area, Filou Lounge, which doubles up as a Disco bar, makes for a very strong landmark representing the nightlife scene of Koh Chang, and it offers a unique experience for those who seek the thrill of the much vaunted nightlife Thailand has to offer.


A reconstructed spawn of the previous Rock Sugar Restaurant, Filou Lounge’s new-age Thai interior is characterized by conspicuous wall paintings that are littered with an exotic collection of flora, bringing together an open plan seating arrangement with a true tropical experience that will leave any avid nightlife lover with a lasting memory of probably the only one of its kind.


A true sense of relaxation is the order of the night here, as suggested by the constant flow of the tropical sea breeze, which is undoubtedly welcomed by the open-top setting towards the fore of the venue, and the attention to detail, which often goes unnoticed by guests, is yet another aspect of the Filou Bar that adds volumes to the overall experience.


Alcoholic beverages are concealed towards the rear, out of sight of the main relaxation area, as the aim of this unique venue is to induce an experience unlike any other, eliminating the subtle inconveniences of guests having to gaze at bottles the entire night.


A completely relaxed state of mind seems to be the ultimate aim of the Filou Bar, in a perfect marriage between the associated efficiency of the German owners and the pure exotic nature that a tropical Thai beach has to offer. The right balance seems to have been perfectly achieved for those seeking a civilized venue to enjoy the aesthetically pleasing surroundings, in the presence of good company, as the moderately-sized setting makes for a distinct air of intimacy – far from the type of environment associated with something like a traditional beer pub. You can actually enjoy a great evening with your significant other here, letting your hair down completely and accounting for some great memories in the making.


If live music, great service and a couple of quality drinks make for your type of relaxation cocktail, then Filou Bar should be the perfect sanctuary to fulfil your appetite for the Thai nightlife.
