We love the smugglers and it’s great little bar but it was quiet this year. We was easily able to get a seat and have a drink and play cards which was nice after a busy day!

Went to smugglers on a few occasions throughout my holiday. Very good vibe and always interesting people in there. People who work there are great and have a good sense of humour. Great place to go on a night out

We visited this bar most evening during our holiday in Burgau. The cocktails are brilliant and their choice of gin is amazing. Very friendly staff who make you very welcome. Wish they opened a little earlier than 19:00 but then we’d probably drink more🥂

We always had fun at Smugglers and we spent a couple of late nights there. Especially Saturdays are fun when there is live music :) Great staff and there's always some interesting new people to meet.

Sorry can’t help here I think maybe not as the Beach Bar is closed and I think they are owned by the same family.
