Cold Beers, Cool Cocktails

At the Happy Snapper Bar we have a huge range of cool, refreshing drinks.
Ice cold beers, wine, funky cocktails, mixed drinks and non alcoholic drinks.

What better way to cool down after a hot day at the beach?

Our daily happy hour and cocktail specials will certainly get you in the mood for an evening of great live music, dancing and making new Khao Lak friends at the Snapper.

Delicious Snapper Snacks

As well as great live music, cool refreshing drinks and a fantastic party atmosphere we also serve food  at the Happy Snapper.

Drinking, dancing and socialising is hungry work and our outdoor snack bar is ready to serve you delicious fried chicken, hamburgers and fries and, keeping things more traditional hot spring rolls.

A great way to recharge your dancing batteries.


The Happy Snapper Bar in Khao Lak

The Happy Snapper is conveniently located right in the heart of Khao Lak, a relatively small yet thriving tourist destination in Phang Nga Province on the beautiful, unspoiled Andaman Coastline.

The Happy Snapper is a true Khao Lak original. It was established by Pitak in 2002 and soon after became one of the best music venues in town.

Pitak Srisang is an extremely talented bass guitarist who, in his younger days played with many of Thailand’s top Bands of the time. He was also a well respected and regular sessions musician, playing bass for some of Bangkok’s leading recording studios.

Tiring of the city life, Pitak took a temporary step down from the limelight and moved to Khao Lak and so the Snapper Legend began…

Back then, Khao Lak was quickly earning a decent reputation as a quieter, alternative destination to Phuket Island which was already becoming crowded and over developed. The timing was perfect for Pitak to bring live music and a decent nightlife venue to the town.

Though Khao Lak has changed over the last one and a half decades, one thing still remains the same, you will find Pitak rocking the town with his resident Snapper Brothers Band most nights of the week during the high season.

If you enjoy live music or even just a lively, fun night out then the Snapper is the place for you. Whatever you are into, whether it be Soul, Funk, R n B, Reggae, Pop, Rock or even Punk the Snapper is playing it. Why not pop by and see what all the fuss is about.

My favourite bar in Khao Lak

A great bar with excellent service and some of the best live music around.

The bartenders are friendly, well trained and professional.

I visit every time I go to Khao Lak and have never been disappointed.

Thanks to everyone at the Snapper! Read more reviews
