Visited Happy Snapper on two occasions while in Khao Lak. Great live music, very very friendly staff that are happy to sit down and chat when there not to busy. Not the cheapest but the best cocktails we found and open when most places have closed if your up for a couple of drinks after dinner.

This bar is the place to go in Khao Lak - the staff are lovely, the drinks are reasonable and the house band are fantastic! We spent most of our evenings in this bar and it made our holiday. The band play a variety of music. They were always happy to play requests. The singers are great :-) Some nights... More

Add to this the fantastic resident band and It makes for a great evenings entertainment. I have never heard such a wide variety of music from AC/DC to ABBA to Spice Girls... More

We visited here with a couple we met at our resort and enjoyed a quality night. The cocktail and shots list is extensive and very creative. We enjoyed many different and experimental drinks including some "Mad Dog" shots as well as quality classic cocktails like daiquiris and Gin & Tonic. If your looking for a good night out in Khao...

The drinks look and taste good (could be stronger though!). You must try to go and hear the singer before someone casts him off the little stage. He has such an amazing range and creatively gives each song a whole new and surprising new sound. A true miracle this guy! The bar itself is worldclass with a chillout-vacation-feel to it.... More

In my opinion, the Happy Snapper is Khao Lak's ultimate live music joint! Why? Because - apart from great music provided by the Happy Snapper Band - there always are additions to the usual set, either by a gig called the Blues Brothers, or the Happy Bastards, "Pike the Punk Rocker", guest bands such as Goober Gun and others, PLUS...

Had a wonderful night at this bar! It's open till late and the band plays there till quite late. Lots of different cocktails that I've not seen on other menus. Live band is very good with a female vocalist. They play all kinds of musics and you can request songs for them to sing.

We've been in Khaolak the past 2 weeks and have been to the Happy Snapper almost every night, there's live music on all the time until about 10pm there's a musician on outside who is ok by Khaolak standards, after 10pm there's a band on the stage inside, this is the best live music we've heard in Khaolak.
