We are lucky to have a choice of bars all with easy access from the very busy with a buzzing atmosphere to nice, quiet and chilled out, so every kind of customer can feel at home here watching your favorite sports.


Reef Sports Bar and Restaurant 

Located in Mae Haad directly opposite Koh Tao Central Hostel owned by an English guy called Johnny. Johnny’s an Arsenal fan and will often be at the bar to welcome his customers in and make everyone feel comfortable except for United fans of course.

Reef Bar has a wide and varied menu with Thai, Burgers, Pasta & Pub Grub all on offer.

They often run specials that are typically English like the “Pork Pie Ploughmans Salad”, one of my favorites.

Don’t miss the Midweek (Wednesday night) Rotisserie Chicken & Fire Glazed Pork roast dinner it's an absolute belter, sells out every week and is great value at 230 baht ¼ chicken or 280 baht ½ chicken.

The Bar is open from 8am - 11pm daily and can normally open earlier or close later if a sports fixtures necessitates it.

Reef Bar also serves great breakfasts, fresh coffee and lunches throughout the day.

You’ll find a pool table at Reef Bar that’s only 60 baht per hour to play.

Choppers Sports Bar

Choppers is an Australian sports bar located in the heart of Sairee Village. The Aussie owner Jeff is a top bloke despite being a Chelsea fan, and is often in the bar enjoying the banter with tourists and locals alike over a cheeky Greygoose or two... 

They publish a weekly sports fixture list with lots of different Rugby fixtures in addition to the English Premiership matches.

They cover all major LIVE sporting events over their two floors. 

The Venue has a very large selection of beverages, draught beers, bottled beers & spirits.

In the kitchen you can find Chef Tom preparing the daily food specials which never disappoint.

Grumpy's Sports Bar

On the way to Chalok Baan Khao on the left you'll see a mini golf course, just behind there is Grumpy's Sports Bar right next door to Hacienda Restaurant. 

Grumpy's is owned & managed by Steve an English expat local on the island now for some 20 years. Although he has his moments as we all do he’s not as grumpy as he used to be. 

Steve's a Liverpool fan and you'll often hear him harping on about how great his team “used” to be back in the 80s. 

It's a well-stocked bar with very friendly & attentive staff. They do operate a strict non-smoking policy in the bar & restaurant. There's also a purpose built air-conditioned cinema at the back which is a great addition for Koh Tao so keep an eye out for upcoming movies which are shown on the high-quality screen very popular with locals and tourists. 

Food wise they have been serving for many years now what is probably the best and most talked about roast dinner on the island with chicken, veggie, pork, beef and lamb options on both Saturdays AND Sundays. Check out the rest of the food menu in the Hacienda Restaurant just next door, it's well worth a look.

Opening hours 2pm – 11pm Closed on Mondays

The Living Room


In Mae Haad just around the corner from Reef Bar you'll find the living room. As its name suggests it's a comfortable and cozy bar with sofas & armchairs.

Owned by an Aussie named Austin who reminds me of a guru and an English Guy called Chris, they give their place a really chilled out & friendly vibe. Chris is a Spurs fan and probably thinks this is going to be their year (he could be right this time....!)

They have small but tasty menu; my recommendation is the Burger & Beer special for only 160 baht served daily.

The Living Room often stays open late to early hours in the morning if you want to catch up with a late match on the big screen.


Opening hours 7am – 2am daily
