The Best Party Spots in Bangkok

With its infamous reputation and depictions in movies such as The Hangover 2, Bangkok’s nightlife is known around the world. Bangkok offers everything from the naughty and risqué at Patpong, Nana, and Soi Cowboy, to pubs, live music bars, and trendy clubs. It is truly the nightlife Mecca of South East Asia. However, with such a wide variety of nightlife options it can be difficult to know where to start. Based on personal experience, here are the three best party spots in Bangkok.

Nana Plaza

Of the three main red light areas, Patpong, Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza, Nana Plaza is by far the most exciting. While Patpong and Soi Cowboy are more widely known, they have both been reduced to more carnival, touristy sightseeing areas. For a place to really experience the naughty night life of Bangkok, Nana Plaza is the best choice. Located in Sukhumvit Soi 4, Nana Plaza is a veritable three story sex mall centered on the square shaped plaza. Nana Plaza boasts a variety of open air bars and go-go bars with themes such as Bangkok’s infamous ladyboys, lesbian dominatrix, Japanese school girls etc. With such an exotic and erotic atmosphere Nana Plaza is definitely one of best three party spots in Bangkok!

Q Bar

Along with the more risqué options, Bangkok has a great club and bar scene.  One of the most world renowned clubs in Bangkok is the Q Bar. After 12 years, the Q Bar has set the standard for clubbing in Bangkok.  The Q Bar boasts the largest selection of alcohol in the city along with live DJs and a weekly party schedule. An eclectic crowd frequents the Q Bar with a good mix of Thai, expats and tourists, including several A list celebrities. The upstairs lounge, Q Up, has one of Bangkok’s only open air smoking terraces. Offering a place for cliental to enjoy a cigarette, shisha, or an imported cigar. Q Bar has been featured in magazines and television networks across the world and is the number one clubbing destination in Bangkok. The Q Bar is located near the BTS stop Nana at Sukhumvit Soi 11.

Khao San Road

Internationally recognized from Leonardo Decaprio’s movie The Beach, Khao San makes the list as one of the three best party spots in Bangkok.  Khao San is a short street located in central Bangkok, just north of the Grand Palace and Wat Phrae Kaw. Khao San road is a back packer’s paradise. With cheap hostels, restaurants, and bars, Khao San is an ideal place to party.  It is overflowing with foreigners from around the world and it is never hard to find a good time there. With open air patio bars lining the streets, each competing with one another to offer the cheapest drinks and best specials, it is easy to find a good place to have a few drinks.

With flights to Bangkok becoming more affordable in recent times, it is certainly a destination that I would highly recommend you visit. Indulge in a cultural experience by day and party hard at night, my ideal holiday!
