Night Life in Bangkok
Bangkok is not only colorful in daytime but also after sunset when the city takes on a different light and comes to life to offer amusement 24-hours around the clock.
Probably the most popular nightlife spot in the city, located beteen Silom Road and Surawong Road, the Patpong area is full of a-go-go bars and beer bars. There are also exciting Thai boxing (Muai Thai) bouts in the three short streets comprising Patpong.
Clubbing in Bangkok
Sukhumvit Club Spasso, Grand Hyatt Erawan
A great choice for after work cocktails or for a pre-party catch-up with friends. This underground bar and club draws in plenty of the higher society expats. Relaxed atmosphere here even when it’s bustling with people (especially on a Friday night of course.) Completely transforms after 10pm when the club starts buzzing. But until then, you can enjoy some fine Italian delights from the extensive menu, or try out their wood-baked pizza from their smaller menu. Then get up and work it off on the dance floor.

Route 66
This huge club has a lot to offer. It’s the biggest on the RCA. Split up into 4 sections (North, South, East & West) All have a different theme & music style. Crowd masses mostly made up of Thai University students looking to dance, drink & hook up. Packed on weekends so arrive early to get yourself a table and a bottle.

Slim Club Website:
Slim & Flix
Attracts a slightly more mature audience than Route 66. It has two main dance rooms, one playing hip hop & current beats. The other room plays Thai pop or they have a live band playing on certain nights. Weekends are ram-packed but there is always a seat out the front for the smokers.

808 Club
808 Club This club shouts out from the rest with its enormous mirrored exterior. Hard to miss this place in the centre of the strip with its bright neon lights cascading the entrance. The interior is unique with old school leather chairs lining both floors. The top floor has a good view of people strutting their stuff on the floor below. Caters for nicotine addicts with a separate smoke-filled area upstairs to compensate the lack of any outdoor seating.

A quieter, more laid back choice than a lot of the places on RCA. This casual bar has a pool table and attracts a lot of the local Thai’s into the alternative scene. Live bands play most nights. Great for starting drinks & snacks. However, if you meet a nice crowd, you may end up there until 2am!
Location: RCA Block C, Rama 9 Road
Baroque Open: 07:00 pm. - 02:00 am.
On the other side of the road to the RCA entrance you’ll find this alternative option. The décor is something to comment on. Elaborate wallpaper, splashes of gold highlight the lobby & spaceship-style DJ booth. Less crowded at weekends and attracts a wider spread of ages than RCA anywhere from University students to people in their 50’s looking to dance the night away.
Location: Rama 9 Road, opposite RCA

Located behind funky villa this club has a great grudge feel to it. The building looks like it’s half burned down and the entrance is swarming with neon lights. On the weekends the music is deafeningly loud; so not a place to come and chat. Best option is to get a bottle, find a table and just dance the night away. Attracts the alternative crews due to its array of music choices. Electro, dance & house are popular on the weekends. Warning, it gets extremely hot and sticky on the dance floor as their air-con is not great.
Location: Thong Lo Soi 10
Open: 08:00 pm. - 02:00 am.

Note: The parking lot for Demo and Funky Villa is large but still gets packed on weekends. Arrive before the crowds swarm at 10pm to get a space. Or better yet, get a taxi and have a few drinks instead.
