Drop In Bar – The original Beach Bar of Haad Rin since 1989

Drop In Bar is the biggest and longest running beach bar of Haad Rin Beach. It was the very first and original beach bar on the Full Moon party beach and the party at Drop In Bar started almost 30 years ago. Back then on what used to be a deserted beach, the tunes began playing from a power generator with drinks coming from an icebox.



Over the years Drop In Bar have grown massively in size and audience. Drop In Bar were first movers with most of the entertainment still happening daily including the famous burning skipping rope, the ring of fire and the incredible fire shows.



Our venue attracts thousands and thousands of party goers every month and we are famously known for the awesome beach parties happening every day. We connect with the crowd on a more commercial level and we guarantee to give you a night to remember partying on the beach on a paradise island in Thailand.
We also take good care of our people and as a Phanganist at Phanganist Hostel you get a free drink every night at Drop In Bar. Guests also get priority access to tickets to the brand new VIP area in Drop In Bar, where you can enjoy the Full Moon Party above the crowds with an incredible viewpoint of Haad Rin beach!

Come rain or shine, moon or no moon there is always a party at Drop In Bar!
