Party Rock Phu Quoc: The Official Island Nightlife Guide

Updated for 2018

There are hundreds of nightlife options currently available in Phu Quoc, and we know your time on the island is limited, so sit back relax and read the guide below and plan your night out on the island accordingly, we've got you covered!  We've hand picked the venues listed on this page and they represent the very best of what Phu Quoc has to offer.

What to expect

Phu Quoc is less known for its nightclubs, where often times the only patrons at these clubs will be a dozen people or so.  It is more known for its beachfront bars, lounges, and upscale rooftops with epic views of the ocean.  With so many bars and clubs opening and closing on a monthly basis, only a few have endured the test of time and have become the “go-to” places to  have a drink, be seen, and to enjoy some great beats.

Phu Quoc Nightclubs vs Bars vs Lounges

The distinction between a “bar”, “lounge”, “pub”, “beach bar”, and “nightclub” is extremely blurred on the island as most businesses on Phu Quoc want to attract everyone and call themselves everything. The following is how we define each category, which is aligned with most foreign nations.

  • Bar: Primarily a drinking establishment set in a social environment where you can mingle with other patrons. A “Bar” (as defined by us) may or may not serve food as well.
  • Backpacker Bar: A subset of a “Bar”on Phu Quoc which caters to a younger crowd.  These bars are often at the islands numerous hostels.
  • Beach Bar: An bar that is directly on the beach with access to the ocean.
  • Sky Bars & Rooftops: A bar or a lounge that is located on the rooftops of hotels.
  • Beer Garden: A bar that serves locally brewed craft beer or is a microbrewery serving its own beer on site.
  • Pub: A bar that affects an English, Scottish or Irish motif.
  • Lounge: An upmarket place with nice decor that also serves food.
  • Nightclub: An upmarket disco or club that has a designated dancing area and DJ.

Safety

The number one issue on Phu Quoc, and most tourist destinations in Asia, is the prevalent use of counterfeit products.  Cheap alcohol imported from China is often poured into branded liquor bottles and sold to customers.  This type of alcohol is commonly used for “mixed drinks” such as gin and tonic or rum and coke.  This bait-and-switch tactic is often used at lower tier bars and are not mentioned in this guide.

If you are visiting one of the many Phu Quoc bars or nightclubs alone, please do not accept random drinks from strangers.  Order your drinks from staff or directly from the bar tender.  If you have had a lot to drink and need to take a taxi back to your resort alone, please inform staff and/or get them to call a taxi for you.

Things to know

  • Gay-friendly bars can be found at Fingernail Island (Hon Mong Tay) and in Duong Dong Town.
  • The legal drinking age in Vietnam is 18 but it is not really enforced on Phu Quoc Island. Also, unlike most western nations, you can drink an alcoholic beverage anywhere you want.
  • Buying alcohol is as easy as buying water and local beer and liquors can be purchased at almost any store that sells food/snacks/drinks.
  • All beaches that are on Phu Quoc Island are public.

Mui Dinh Cau

Location: Dinh Cau Beach & Temple Area
Review: You do not need to spend a lot of money to enjoy Phu Quoc, nor do you need to go to a designated bar to watch an amazing sunset. Some of the best island experiences are out in the open. To kick off the Best Phu Quoc Bars section we will begin by highlighting a public place located at the base of the Dinh Cau Temple. During the sunset hours this area becomes alive! Plastic chairs and tables are set up, street vendors roll in, and both locals and curious tourists come by. Find yourself an empty table, sit down and order either a Vietnamese brand beer (333, Saigon Red or Saigon Green) which will cost less than $1.00USD, fresh pressed sugar cane juice (called Nuoc Mia) with no ice, or a bubble tea. For a snack, try boiled fertilized duck eggs with chili lime and salt if you dare, but other snacks are available e.g Vietnamese pizza (Bánh Tráng Nướng), veggie sandwiches, meat sticks, and a variety of sweets. You owe it to yourself, as well as this island and its original inhabitants, to spend some time here as it is widely considered one of the most auspicious spots on the island.
