Music has the power to completely change a person’s mood. One minute you could be feeling down or deflated, and the next you could be dancing around with the biggest grin on your face after turning on some upbeat tunes. A desirable thing about visiting Phuket is that it is a popular destination for musicians and music lovers. The live music scene is always electric, no matter what the season, so you can expect to see raw talent when you visit. If the thought of watching and listening to a talented musician perform live in an intimate setting is tempting you to spend a night out on the tiles, we recommend browsing Phuket’s live music venues.





These three live music venues spotlight a different artist or band every week (entry is free, too):


  1. Red Hot Bar - Once upon a time, this bar was known as Margarita’s. Now, the live music venue in Phuket is better known as Red Hot. When there’s not a band or solo musician entertaining crowds, sports is shown on the wide-screen television and tasty food is dished up.
  2. Tao Live Music Bar - Sing along to both Western and Thai songs at this live music venue. It is designed with state-of-the-art screens and lighting. You won’t miss the quirky tuk tuk that is attached to the ceiling of the bar, which opens from 7:00 pm until late.
  3. Rockin’ Angels Blues Cafe - American influences are noticeable inside this venue, which originated in the deep south. Tuck into a juicy hamburger whilst the fluorescent and dim lighting highlights bands on-stage.
