venues here, rate on par with the very best the world has

hardcore classics or you simply want a friendly hangout to sip your
favourite cocktail, Bangkok has it all and more. And there's a heck of a lot more exciting nightclubs in Bangkok to check out.
If you are yearning for an intimate jazz venue then Brown Sugar Bar should be what you are looking for. It's located on Soi Sarasin off Ratchadamri Road near Lumphini Park.

One other fabulous music venue on Soi Sarasin is the 70s Bar and as its very name implies, the music here matches that of some of the greatest hits of the 1970's rock and roll era. Though the bar is quite small, it's an extremely popular expat hangout. While it does not take that many people to make the dance floor feel crowded, the friendly atmosphere coupled with countless choice classics gives this bar the full thumbs up.

nightly from 7:00 pm until 1:00 am.

With the band's backing, Elvis and Tom are sure to make your evening a real pleasure. Radio City is located in Patpong Street 1 and is open nightly from 7:00 pm until 2:00 am.
