Bangla Plaza in Karon beach has quite a number of decent bars and restaurants and is occupied with people all the time. Gathering of shop sized bars in bangla plaza can be found on the right side of the Soi. The soi is led by bars and restaurants which are mostly girlie or lady boy spots. All these venues are open air with additional tables outside containing the regular pool slab and are very popular among locals to have some entertaining time; some of the well-known bars names include My Way Bar, Winner Bar, and Night flower, Nan, Jinda and Black Cat.

There are similar inns all the way to the end of the backstreet; but the Montana Music Bar set in a sub soi is an exception among them, a chilled place with a small number of seats outside, that focuses in retro melody along with bar-girls. Bangla plaza is a good area for barhopping.
