Narz Nightclub on Bangkok Sukhumvit
Three Rooms of Late Night Hedonism
Narz is a nightclub housed inside a glass-fronted mansion with three separate rooms to explore and enjoy. It is a late night club that stays open after most others in the city have closed and has a sleek and modern décor that attracts a wide range of clientele from across the social spectrum. Of the three types of music on offer – hip hop, house or trance – it is the hip hop room that fills up first, and if you are arriving before 24:00, definitely head upstairs as the other rooms don’t really get going until later. However it is trance music that Narz is most widely known for, with a roster of top-class DJs, a steady stream of guest acts and a crowd consisting of young and mostly Thai revelers, who arrive late and leave as the sun comes up.
It opens around 22:00 but don’t think about arriving before midnight unless you want the club to yourself, with just the eyes of the serving staff for company. Narz offers free entry on weeknights and weekends before 22:00, unless they have a top European DJ playing when it is strictly ticket only. The price of entry on their special nights depends largely on the prestige of the visiting DJ. For example, tickets to watch legendary trance DJ Paul Oakenfold cost 800 baht with one drink included. If you arrive past midnight on a normal night, expect to pay 400 baht entry with two free drinks included, or you can buy a top-shelf bottle, which admits four people for free.
Expect to pay around 200 baht for beers or spirits, which is fairly standard club prices in Bangkok, but in Narz, if you ask for a Johnnie Walker Black Label that is what you get (unlike some other clubs that try to pass off cheaper alternatives as the more expensive brands). If you plan to make it a big night, we recommend you buy a top-shelf bottle and share with friends – and if you’re there without any, make some! The largely Thai crowd is one of the most eclectic you will find in Bangkok, with university students partying next to ladies of leisure having a night out while their husbands are away on business. Of course there is a noticeable contingent of foreigners, as well as a smattering of working girls from the nearby Soi Cowboy, but they are definitely in the minority here.
Anyone looking for an all night party in sleek and fashionable surroundings should check out Narz at least once, but probably save it for an after club venue – as it is really comes alive when all other clubs are winding down from 02:00 onwards. Narz is located on Sukhumvit Soi 23, close to Soi Cowboy. If you are travelling by taxi, go straight past Soi Cowboy on your left and take the next right. Narz is easy to spot at the end of the road.
