Bangkok Nightlife

What to Do & Where to Go at Night in Bangkok

Nightlife in Bangkok has evolved over the years, with the emphasis now firmly on swanky rooftop bars, lively nightclubs and hip cocktail bars. The Thai capital now has so much more to offer than just the adult-themed fun of Patpong, Nana and Soi Cowboy.

Any discussion of nightlife in Bangkok can’t ignore the party scene at Khao San Road, or the more laidback Soi Rambuttri next door, whilst Thonglor across town seems to have a trendy new bar opening up every week. Clubbers in Bangkok are spoilt for choice too, with big names on Sukhumvit, Silom and the gauntlet of superclubs at RCA all packed-out with tourists and locals most nights of the week. 

Below, you’ll find all the latest openings, as well as our comprehensive range of Top 10 Nightlife in Bangkok guides for each area of the city.


Ku De Ta Bangkok

KuDeTa lifestyle and entertainment brand is rightfully world-famous for their elegant restaurants, bars and nightclubs spread across the hot spots of Asia, and Ku De Ta Bangkok is the newest addition to the collection. Located on the 39th and 40th floors of the mammoth Sathorn Square Building the views are suitably impressive, with an uninterrupted cityscape from the nightclub section and views to the Chao Phraya River and beyond from your dinner table. Comprising two restaurants, a central cocktail bar and glamourous nightclub, KuDeTa can be loosely labelled as a lifestyle destination.

Ba Da Bing Bar in Patpong

Bada Bing is a fun-loving and friendly bar on Patpong Soi 2 where every night over 25 girls dance provocatively on stage dressed in sexy denim micro-shorts, army uniforms, nurses outfits and many other fantasy costumes that wouldn't keep you warm, but certainly make the customers heat up. Often considered the best gogo bar in Bangkok, the design is modern, the service prompt, and best of all, Bada Bing is one of the only bars in the Patpong area where you can totally relax and enjoy yourself. With free entry every night of the week, you've got to ask yourself 'why haven't you seen this place with your own eyes?'
