[TRAVEL] New party spots Bimi Beach Club and Bongo Rum Bar to open in Phuket this August:
Bimi Beach Club and Bongo Rum Bar are set to launch this August in Phuket. Bimi Beach Club on Surin Beach is a project by the folks behind the well known Catch Beach Club. Set to open from 10am till 10pm, Bimi will play host to Thai and international DJs, and will be equipped with giant rain showers. Also on the cards is a menu of light bites like nicoise salad, wood-fired pizza, chicken sate and tom yum goong as well as sweets such as apple tarte tatin or mango and sticky rice. Bongo Rum Bar is the work of the team behind Twinpalms Phuket (where we’re hosting an I-S Xperience this September), a mellow venue which promises Asia’s largest collection of aged rum. Expect to sip everything from straight up small-batch Caribbean style rum to mixed cocktails. For more sunny holiday ideas check out our story on Phuket’s beach clubs .
