Want to experience the ambiance of Old Phuket? Then Route 68 is a ‘must see’ at 68 Thalang Road. This cool bar has a vintage setting merging with the Sino-Portuguese architecture of the neighborhood. The ambiance is out of the world with soft jazz music, retro style furniture and décor, and its early twentieth century architecture. It gives one the feeling of time travel without actually moving. Both the managers are music lovers and live music is a vital attraction at the venue on the weekends. The genre ranges from pop, soft rock and jazz. The good part is that if you are an aspiring musician you can get the chance to jam later in the night!
Other than the attractive drinks at the bar it offers some local snacks and soups, with the Chiang Mai dish being the most popular, prepared with Thai herbs and crispy noodles. It delivers the local ‘fire’ to the palate in its red chili base. Limited space is available for those who want to go the ‘extra mile’ with the drinks.
So this classic venue lost in time offers the perfect getaway for the ‘time-traveler’!Address: 68 Talang Rd, Taladyai, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000, Thailand Tel: 089 647 4992 Operation Hours: 14:00 – 01:00
