Bangkok Nightlife

All the Red Light Districts, Night Clubs,
Pubs and Bars in Bangkok City 

Bangkok Grand Palace at Night

The impressions and expectations of Bangkok Nightlife for all of you who flock to the city of angels, might well appear to extend no further than the adult playgrounds of the infamous Patpong Night Market, Soi Cowboy and Nana Entertainment Plaza.

But you couldn't be further from the truth because once the sun goes down, there are just as many equally pleasurable options in which to choose in this completely chaotic cosmopolitan city. 

There are a number of fabulous bars that are as exciting as they are intriguing. There are also a great many regular pubs, some extremely hot and exciting nightclubs as well as several jazz venues. 

And if you want to spend a relaxing and entertaining evening listening to Bangkok's greatest jazz sounds, then I strongly suggest you pop down to the Brown Sugar Bar on Soi Sarasin.

Another great live jazz venue simply has to be Bamboo Bar at the Oriental Hotel in downtown Bangkok. Bangkok nightlife is top of my list of hot (it's sweltering) and exciting entertainment.

Muay Thai Live in the City

Bangkok Nightlife - Sanuk

Thai people have a phrase they call Sanuk which simply translated, means to have fun. Sanuk is definitely the order of any day or night for that matter, and that means you are whole-heartily encouraged to participate in the swirling bedlam that epitomizes all things the nightlife scene may thrust upon you.

If you are brave enough to withstand the sweltering 30 degree Centigrade or 90 degree Fahrenheit temperatures even during the night, you might just make it. You'll most certainly work up a sticky sweat as you wander around the city.

If this could be nearly enough, the constant gridlock of traffic while desperately trying to navigate your way through crowded streets, may test your stress levels to the limit. You may find yourself gulping down large quantities of polluted air emitted from the thousands of Tuk-Tuks and Taxis that clog the roads.

This should infuse a certain need to find some cleaner oxygen as your breathing starts to become a trifle unbearable at times. Found your share of sanuk yet!

Nana Plaza Entertainment Centre

Bangkok Nightlife - Nana Plaza 

Nana Plaza is an adult entertainment area located on Sukhumvit Soi 4. Should your hotel not be in the near vicinity as mine was once, then besides taking a Tuk-Tuk ride through the myriad of incessant traffic, the best way to get there is to take the Sky Train to Nana Station.

Once there hop off at Exit 2, which you'll find on the side next to the Landmark Hotel. Locals and tourists know this hotel well as it's used by bar girls and their clients for short and long stay-overs.

Although Nana Plaza is only a short distance past the Landmark Hotel to your left on Soi 4, you could easily miss it as the entrance is relatively small. Simply look out for the Nana Entertainment Plaza neon sign.

The entrance to the complex is guarded by a large drinking venue on one side called Big Dogs and stalls selling a variety of nick-knacks that suit all tastes, including an assortment of kebabs, various fruit sliced and diced and a selection of deep fried insects for the brave.

Once inside the Plaza and you have temporary recovered from the shock of how the owners of this venue have crammed so many bars into three levels of utter chaos. The escalator to the right or the stairway to the left will take you on a kaleidoscope of pure sexual fantasy.

If it’s just a beer and a chat you want, it’s probably best to simply stay on the ground level. However, if you're looking for a lot more visual excitement, there are plenty of dancing clubs such as Red Lips, Lollipop, Voodoo, Spankys, Hollywood, Rainbow 1 and 2 and others, close enough for you not to miss.

Soi Cowboy 

Bangkok Nightlife - Soi Cowboy

Soi Cowboy is possibly the best of the red light districts in Bangkok. That is to say, if you wish to avoid the crowds of expats and sex tourists who congregate around the adult playgrounds of Patpong and Nana Plaza. Soi Cowboy occupies just one small street of around three hundred metres. If you're seeking a less packed place to fulfill your fancy, this one could be up your street.

Small as it may be, Soi Cowboy packs a lot of punch and charm. Countless friendly and smiling faces and as many restaurants, bars and live music venues, fill the street. Read more here...

Patpong Red Light District and Night Market

Bangkok Nightlife - Patpong

Patpong Night Market is best known as an adult playground and probably the most notorious of all the red light districts of Bangkok. Its hallmark can only be described as an assortment of go-go bars, nightclubs, discos, restaurants and drinking holes as well as an abundant shops and stalls selling a vast variety of souvenirs and fake designer clothes, jewellery and any amount of pirated goods. Read more here...
