FFlic Cliff & Pool Club is the realisation of the increasingly popular parallel between Ibiza and Pattaya. Both are costal party towns where the nightlife is world-renowned. Both also enjoy hot weather for much of the year, making a pool party a great way to keep cool while being cool. As a custom-made venue for just that purpose, FFlic Club is the best in town.
Located on a clifftop by Cosy Beach, the sunsets from the pool, the sun deck, the bar, the lawn or the indoor dining area are impressive, with the sun hitting the horizon just next to Koh Larn. You can enjoy the awesome views with a full range of drinks, starting at bottled beers for 100 baht. You can get these from a small swim-up bar under the DJ’s tower, from the larger main bar to one side of the pool or as bottle service at the shaded tables to the other side. High quality western food is also available and starts at 200 baht for an almost haute cuisine burger.
Quite a unique feature of FFlic Cliff & Pool Club is the seating options. As with most clubs, there are taller tables to stand or dance around as well as seats at the bar; as with most restaurants, there tables and chairs, both outdoor and in a small air-conditioned area; as with most pool venues, there are sunbeds, submerged bar stools (for the swim-up bar) and big, cabana-style seats. FFlic has an option for those who don’t want to swim, but want to chat with those who do – three sunken booths, with table at pool level.
With limited dancing space in the small club, the pool is really the best place to enjoy the popular house beats the resident DJ spins, as well as the frequent themed parties (orange party, Playboy-style party, foam party, etc.). The water is a little over a metre deep and is often livened up with a few blocks of dry ice, creating a cool fog on the surface. Towels are provided for free, but you’ll have to bring your own swimming costume!
Despite being a relative newcomer to the Pattaya nightlife scene, FFlic Cliff & Pool Club has already become extremely popular with tourists and expats, enticing mostly young fun-lovers. The club is easily found by taking the leftmost fork on the big junction at the top of Phratamnak Hill, keep going straight until you find the turn for Soi Kasetsin 11 on your right and follow that to the end. There is ample free parking just over the quiet road.
