Nunglen & Escobar

Famous Nightclub in Thonglor/Ekkamai

Read More

Nunglen & Escobar together form one of the most popular local party spots in Thonglor and Ekkamai. The two separate venues are both part of the same nightlife complex, located on the corner of Ekkamai Soi 5, and draw in mixed crowd of locals including university students, young professionals and the occasional adventurous expat.

Nunglen is the place to go for the local Thai bands (seven nights a week), while Escobar, a smaller, more dance music-oriented club, is located just opposite and normally only gets really busy on the weekends and holidays. 

Nunglen

At almost 10-years-old, Nunglen is one of the longest-running nightclubs in Bangkok. The large one-room venue gets packed out almost every day, and it’s recommended to arrive before 22:00 if you want to get a table. Emphasis here is firmly on the local bands, who belt out the sing-along pop anthems (mostly in Thai) for the best part of the night. A live DJ plays in between the bands and at the end between 01:00-02:00. 

Translating to ‘sit and chill’, the whole Nunglen experience is more ‘stand and party’; tables are packed in so tightly towards the stage that there’s barely enough room to move, and the sound reverberating off the low ceilings – not to mention the tipsy Thai girls screaming their hearts out - can become quite deafening. That said, more people often equals more fun, and the local crowds are usually happy to share their tables, cheer glasses and make some new one-night-only best friends. 

Escobar

If you want to escape the crowds and indie music of Nunlen, your best bet is to hop over to the adjacent Escobar. This club still welcomes a predominantly local crowd, but music comes from a DJ booth, rather than a four-piece band. This means house and techno in the week, with a more hip-hop vibe on the weekends. 

Escobar recently underwent a renovation, and now boasts an improved lighting and sound system, as well as a cool LED tripped-out bar. Unlike Nunglen opposite, there’s normally no problem getting a table here in the week, although it can fill up with the overspill from its older brother on the weekend.

Nunglen & Escobar have relatively similar prices when it comes to drinks, with bottles of Red Label starting from 1,000 baht and beers/cocktails in the 150-250 price range. As part of the same complex, you can take your drinks from one venue to another, and entrance is free for everybody (unless there’s a special event).

The club is reachable by coming up Ekkamai Road (Sukhumvit 63); it's on the left side of the road near soi 5. Alternatively, you can also come up Thonglor Road and head to the bottom of soi 10 on the right. Traffic in this area can be quite bad between 18:00-22:00 on the weekend as half of Bangkok descends on Nunglen and the half a dozen other clubs in the area.
