Pantai Cenang is widely known as Langkawi's busiest nocturnal playground, with rows of bars and lounges offering great views of the Andaman Sea, not to mention extensive food and drinks menus. Clubs that belt out skull-pounding dance music are practically non-existent in Pantai Cenang - night dwellers instead opt to spend a cool evening with their choice of ice cold beer, strike up a conversation with fellow tourists or locals, listen to some good music, catch the latest match on LCD screens or simply enjoy the sunset with while sipping on a delicious cocktail.
Traveling in Malaysia is quite convenient since it has some major bus terminals and express buses are the preferred mode of transport here. Tickets for which can be booked online from www.redbus.my
The Sunset Deck
The Sunset Deck, located in Bon Ton Resort, is a tranquil establishment that offers a satisfying selection of cocktails, wines, liqueurs and other beverages along with its tapas or mezze menu. With a massive open-air seating area on a wooden platform that is surrounded by palm trees and coconut trees, diners are treated to a lovely view of the sunset as they sip on their favourite cocktails. Served from 17:00 to 19:00, diners can choose from seafood, meat or vegetarian tapas or mezze - we highly recommend the Mezze Plate of Dips, which consists of hummus, chermoula marinade and dukka, with a side of rocket and preserved lemon salad served with pita and Turkish bread. Do note that The Sunset Deck’s upscale locale and atmosphere results in higher prices compared to most Langkawi nightspots
Chin Chin Lounge and Bar
Chin Chin Lounge and Bar is a mid-upscale funky Asian bar serving cocktails, liqueurs and wines at reasonable prices. Also located in Bon Ton Resort, this comfortable and cosy Chinese-style lounge is filled with plenty of antiques to give it a homely vibe and is usually filled with patrons enjoying pre-dinner drinks while waiting for a table at Nam Restaurant. Definite must-tries at Chin Chin Lounge and Bar include its liquor flavoured coffees such as Short Island ice-cream (vodka, kahlua, Cointreau, Frangelico and ice-cream), Bon Ton liqueur coffee (1.5 shots of Jameson, .5 kahlua, coffee, and cream), and Jamaican coffee (one shot of rum, Tia Maria, coffee, and cream).
