Bangkok bars and pubs offer a diverse range of venues for chilling out after sunset. Besides cosying up in a classy hotel lounge in popular tourist areas like Chidlom or Silom, it's easy to discover a host of stand-alone bars and pubs scattered throughout Bangkok’s various neighbourhoods. The riverside boasts one of the most picturesque views and romantic ambiances, while the areas like Khao San and Sukhumvit (Soi Nana to Soi 11) are best for bar-hopping. Catering to the hip and well-heeled, Thonglor (Sukhumvit Soi 55) is filled with stylish establishments from posh jazz bars to rooftop lounges with live music.
In this section we have attempted to cover every type of Bangkok bar or pub you might be looking for - from a suave cocktail bar to a lively live music venue and, of course, a lively boozer to watch the big game and some satisfying pub grub.
