The Club on Khao San Road
Great Tunes and Happy People
The Club on Khao San Road is large, loud and from around midnight on filled with people swaying to pumping music. Throngs of travellers and locals are drawn here to make the most of the low-priced drinks and free entry. Envisioned as a slice of the Ibiza super clubs in the heart of Bangkok’s backpacker district, The Club has been successfully keeping the party going for years. Open from 22:00 till 03:00 this nightclub is the ideal place to dance to some great tunes amongst one of the most buzzing crowds in Bangkok.
You’ll have no problem finding The Club. Its large blue neon sign with a glowing red octopus can be seen from a distance as you walk along Khao San Road towards the Chakrabongse Road end. If you’re coming from other parts of Bangkok, a taxi is the easiest way to get here, every driver will have heard of Khao San Road. Security on the door is very friendly, but do bring a copy of your passport or ID, as those who look young enough might be asked for identity. There’s no particular dress code and this complements the carefree attitude of this club. Whether you are wearing shorts and sandals, your favourite smart shirt or highest dancing shoes you are guaranteed to feel welcome here.
You enter The Club via a long corridor and descend into a cavernous room split into several sections. The DJ Booth sits high above the large dance floor with a small raised dancing platform encircling it; perfect if you want to show off your moves. There are plenty of seats around both bar areas, a smoking room and a chill-out area with sofas. It’s not quite Ibiza, but the lighting and smoke machines go a long way to create a similar party atmosphere. The music is a great mix of house, techno and trance; once you start dancing amongst the crowd you lose track of time. They host some great events as well; guest DJs from around the world can often be found on the decks at The Club.
The drinks on offer are the customary mix of beer, spirits, cocktails and buckets, and on certain nights there are special promotions, so check with the bar staff before you order. Over the past few years The Club has become one of the most successful and well-known nightclubs in the area. Despite being underground this place is head and shoulders above the rest on Khao San Road. If you’re looking for good music and somewhere to dance the night away, The Club is calling your name.
