7 Cool Bars in Thonglor

Thonglor Nightlife

Thonglor has long been recognised as Bangkok’s coolest neighbourhood, with enough swanky restaurants, late-night cafes, and trendy bars to keep all your after-dark adventures firmly fixated around Sukhumvit Soi 55.

But keeping up with Thonglor’s constantly developing nightlife scene is no easy task; as soon as a cool new venue has completed its numerous ‘soft opening’ parties, there’ll probably be another bar around the corner stealing the limelight the very next week.

So, to keep you up-to-date, we’ve pulled together a list of our current go-to bars in Thonglor, including some old favourites and a few newer hangouts.

The Iron Fairies is an excellent Thonglor bar designed like an ironsmith's workshop. Dark and broody, it has wrought iron staircases, exposed pipes, and bottles of fairy dust are stacked in rows. On weekends, it's usually packed all night long. You can find excellent signature cocktails as well as an extensive beer list that includes Thai, Japanese, Mexican and Dutch labels. A live band plays jazz and blues from 9pm onwards. Come here as a couple – it's a great place for a date – or part of a small group for after-work drinks.  Read More...

Badmotel Bangkok is a safe bet for drinks in Thonglor, thanks to its aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, outside garden, and an easy-to-reach location on Sukhumvit 55. The vibrant main bar is downstairs, which takes on a deliberately rough-and-ready design scheme. For a cosier setting, head to the intimate courtyard garden or the artsy upper floors for views of Thonglor. The bar hosts live DJs, who usually spin old-school r n’ b, funky house, and boogie every night.  Read More...

Studio Lam

Studio Lam stands up against Bangkok’s mainstream nightlife scene in pretty much every way possible – think old school turntables instead of CDs, herb-infused moonshine instead of Grey Goose, and niche World Music (with a focus on vintage Thai folk music). Seating is sparse, though you’ll find outside benches for the crowd to spill onto when things get busy (usually late weekends). The DJs or live bands playing at Studio Lam are so eclectic, you could get anything from African percussion to Indian vocal choirs. 

  • Opening Hours: Tuesday–Sunday from 6pm to 2am (closed on Mondays)
  • Location: 51 Sukhumvit Rd, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
  • Tel: +66 (0)2 261 6661

Mellow Restaurant & Bar

Mellow Restaurant & Bar might not exactly be reinventing the wheel when it comes to nightlife in Thonglor, but it does offer a rather laidback night-time experience. The bright sunlight flooding in through huge windows creates a pleasant setting for lunch, while the soft lighting, lavish leather sofas, and gentle house music attract a rather sophisticated crowd after-dark. Visit Mellow Restaurant & Bar during happy hour (5pm to 8pm) to enjoy a 50% discount on promos on cocktails, sake, umeshu (plum wine), and Asahi Draft.

  • Opening Hours: 11:00-01:00 daily
  • Location: Penny’s Balcony, Thonglor Soi 16, Bangkok
  • Tel: +66(0)2 382 0065
