The DJL pool bar & restaurant is open to everyone so you're more than welcome to drop in for some great food and some cold drinks. The bar throws regular parties and BBQ's usually corresponding to an event in the dive school such as the completion of one of the more advanced diving courses such as Divemaster or Instructor.
Only a matter of metres, less than 10 in fact from the front door is the DJL Restaurant & Bar and attached swimming pool. Koh Tao Backpackers is linked to DJL and so you're more than welcome to use the bar, restaurant and swimming pool, we use this as one of our common areas.
There are regular barbeques held in the the restaurant often to coincide with events at the dive school but all are welcome, the same goes for any of the bar events such as Divemaster snorkel tests or the Saturday afternoon pool parties.
