Visions of intimate conversation laced with a hint of romance can quickly fall by the wayside in the fast-paced world of Phuket beach nightlife. Drama at the basting beachfront bars followed with a heavy nightclub scene can easily wrench the last bit of passion from one’s nocturnal plans, especially if you want a truly magical experience. Blue Siam, the Gallery Beach Club, is the hidden gem of Bang Tao Beach that can give you a unique night out.
Nestled just on the edge of the southern end of Bang Tao Beach, Blue Siam is like a beach party unit for those who wish to escape the ordinary beach bar scene. At the back of what is seemingly a plain white concrete wall, opens up into a green backyard with a wooden pathway to the elegant open-air beach dining area.
The bar is white, unpretentious yet sophisticated, accentuated by lines of coconut trees. Following the minimalist concept, shipping containers are used for the air-conditioned dining unit and the kitchen. They are simple but surprisingly effective, eco-chic and enviably distinctive. Blue Siam offers the ideal atmosphere for sharing with special someone whether it’s the first date or the tenth; or a large gathering for a birthday celebration, wedding party or other special occasion. The venue can easily transform the dining area to a theme and add your favorite music with a live DJ.
The best part of Blue Siam is it really is right on the beach! Feel sugary white sand between your toes, listen to the soft sound of waves caressing the shore and watch the most beautiful sunset you can imagine. After a short walk on the luminous sand while the sun fades into the evening’s dim blue lighting, park yourself on a comfy couch and linger over your favorite cocktail.
The menu here features a list of Thai cuisine carefully selected for optimal pleasure, including fine appetizers, exquisite main courses, and occasional changing special menus for holidays like New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day.
The food is satisfyingly delicious and presented with culinary perfection. Goong Sarong of Blue Siam is especially extraordinary: enjoy deep-fried marinated tiger prawn rolls served with special house sweet and sour sauce. The chef wraps each prawn with a light rice pastry before deepfrying it and the result is a delectable art piece.
Another fine choice is the Pla Kapong Sam See: deep-fried snapper topped with the chef’s secret sauce. The golden fish is deliciously crispy on the outside but succulently juicy inside; and it is well complemented by a mild sweet and sour sauce.
The rest of the menu is full of more crowd pleasers, light bites and elegant dinner selections. Blue Siam ensures a memorable night out on the beach with great food, a beautiful atmosphere and charming service. Bring your next celebration to the beach!
