2. Lucky Restaurant & Last Bar

Lucky Restaurant & Last Bar was named so because it used to be the last bar on the main strip in Railay many years ago. While the strip has been extended, the bar has kept its name and is now one of the most happening places in the area. The menu features a wide range of cuisine, from the spicy flavour of Thai cuisine to Western classics and vegetarian plates. You can also enjoy a great selection of refreshing cocktails here. The price is reasonable and the happy hour is lengthy, running from 6.00 to 10.00 PM. The bar transformed into something of a club in the evening, with UV strobe lighting and dance music, giving you a rave atmosphere. If you come during the high season, you might be able to watch a Muay Thai Boxing demonstration and fire show.

Opening hours: Open daily from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Address: Railay Beach East (at the end of the beer bar strip), Krabi.
