Coco Walk in Bangkok

Fun Bar-Hopping Spot in Pratunam

Coco Walk in Bangkok is a lively little alleyway off Phayathai Road in the heart of the city that’s perfectly set up for bar hopping, Thai-style. This small soi of bars, pubs and restaurants lies in the shadow of the huge Ratchathewi BTS Skytrain Station – although this might not be the most picturesque drinking spot in town, it’s certainly one of the most convenient, especially if you’re staying in one of the dozens of hotels in the surrounding Pratunam or Ratchathewi area.

Particularly popular with university students, some might turn their noses up at Coco Walk’s slightly ‘rough around the edges’ feel (it’s been around for decades), but that’s all part of its unpretentious, loveable and quintessentially Thai charm.

Enter Coco Walk

The entrance to Coco Walk is glaringly obvious, especially if you step off the BTS at Exit 4 and head down the steps. Don’t be put off by the ageing sign, which sits above a rather sorry-looking fountain. 

The lively Thai music, cheap drinks and a plethora of other distractions (such as pool tables, shishas, live sports and even a skate ramp at one place) will most likely win you over and leave you coming back to Coco Walk for more.

Highlights of Coco Walk

Unlike many other similar collections of bars around Bangkok (for example at Silom, Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy), you’ll find none of the sleaze but still all of the fun. You can happily take a stroll down the walkway without being hassled, harassed or invited to some eye-popping lady show. The emphasis at Coco Walk in Bangkok is on the great nightly live music, the chilled-out setting, and tempting deals on beers (towers are particularly cheap here).

So, with over a dozen bars all tightly jammed into one spot, the question is just where to go? Most pick a spot based on the crowd, music or how just how cute the waitresses/waiters are. That said, we’ve done our research and here we point you to some of the real highlights of Coco Walk in Bangkok.

Retro Bar and 73bar

Enjoying probably the best location of all the bars at Coco Walk, these 2 separate bars are right at the entrance of the alleyway, meaning they're the default spots for those that don’t want to bother entering the alley.

Location is not the only thing going for them. Seating options are plentiful (both have inside areas with air-con and outside with comfy sofas). Drinks are cheap too, bands play every night at Retro Bar.

Skate Café

Those reading carefully will already know that there's an actual skate ramp at Coco Walk. Skate Café, of course, is where you’ll find it. Bring your own board to enjoy some tipsy skating while enjoying their happy hour from 5pm to 8pm. They also have some funky seating made from used skateboards and there are plenty of decent Thai-pub style dishes on their menu to soak up all that beer.

Chilling House

You’ll have to walk all the way down to the end of the soi (less than one minute) to find this one. True to its name, Chilling House is probably the most chilled-out joint at Coco Walk, with comfy wicker chairs for lounging about and soft background music lulling the young local crowd. 

Shuba Shabu

If you get hungry and don’t fancy the Thai snacks served up at all of the pubs at Coco Walk, head to Shuba Shabu for their Korean/Japanese barbeque. You pay a set price for all-you-can-eat meat and veggies which you cook yourself. Turn left at the central crossing to find it.
