10 Best Nightlife in Pattaya

Most Popular Nightlife in Pattaya

Nightlife in Pattaya entirely deserves its international reputation. This is a carefree party town where people seek for endless fun. There are other aspects of its reputation which it perhaps deserves less, but it cannot be denied that it is the place to go for a rollicking good time. Almost every part of the entire region has some form of nightlife, whether it’s naughty nightlife in gogo bars, live rock bands, international DJs, cabaret shows, pool parties, rooftop bars or just a quiet pint at your local away from home.

Some of these Pattaya nightlife spots are family-friendly, though most are not. There is a lot of variety to be found in and around the city, with radically-different kinds of venues found within a very short distance of each other – sometimes side-by-side on the same street! Start planning your big night out in Pattaya with our top 10 guide.

    Pattaya Walking Street

    If you’ve heard of Pattaya, you’ve more likely than not heard of Walking Street. This half-kilometre beach-side street takes its name from the fact that it is closed to motorised traffic from 18:00 every night, at which point it immediately becomes thronged with party-going pedestrians. Almost every building on both sides of the road is a nightclub, bar or gogo bar of some description, with many of the surrounding small sois being much the same. Great nights out can be found from the so-called “Red Car Bar” – Gulliver’s Walking Street – at one end of the street to Mixx Discotheque at the other, with The Pier Disco Club, 808, Club Insomnia, Candyshop, Marine Disco, Play and Lucifer Disko amongst the best in between. On the racier side, Airport Club, Alcatraz, Baccara, Iron Club and X Zone are all highly-rated gogo bars amongst the very wide selection. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: Closed to road traffic 18:00 – 02:00. Bar opening times vary

    Cabaret Show

    North Pattaya
    Cabaret Show

    Alcazar Cabaret Show Pattaya is widely regarded as one of the best ladyboy cabaret shows in Pattaya, which is saying a lot given the amount of high-quality competition for such a title. A 400-member team presents a 70-minute extravaganza of glitzy and glamorous entertainment in the well-established theatre by Pattaya Second Road. The Alcazar Caberet first opened in November 1981 with a 350-seat theatre, but that was replaced in February 1990 with the current 1,200-seat theatre with state-of-the-art light and sound systems. The facilities and show itself are continually being updated and improved, making sure that the performance remains fresh and entertaining, dazzling audiences year after year. Read More...

    Horizon Bar, Hilton Pattaya

    34th Floor, Hilton Pattaya, 333/101 Beach Road, South Pattaya
    Horizon Bar, Hilton Pattaya

    The Hilton Pattaya building dominates the city’s skyline, being easily the tallest building on Pattaya Beach Road, if not the tallest in the whole area. Right at the top – on the 34th floor – is the Horizon Bar – presumably so named because it’s so far up that you can see the curvature of the Earth from the balcony. The very best place to enjoy a drink with a view, the buy-one-get-one-free offer on selected cocktails (including old favourites and house specials) from 17:00 to 19:00 makes it a fantastic place to enjoy the marvellous sunsets. While there are comfortable sofas available, it is the high bar stools and the tables by the railings that you’ll see most people rushing to claim. Read More...

    FFlic Cliff & Pool Club

    286/5 Rajchawaroon Road, Soi Kasetsin 11, Phratamnak
    Havana Bar, Holiday Inn Pattaya

    Fun, wet and social spot with a great view across to Koh Larn, FFlic Cliff & Pool Club is one of the top places to enjoy a sundowner and then to keep the party going under the stars. A relative newcomer to the nightlife scene, it has dramatically woken up the sleepy Phratamnak area, being an instant hit with visitors and locals. It boasts an extensive main bar and a second smaller one by the side of the infinity-edge pool, international guest DJs playing funky R&B tunes, a lively atmosphere and a great selection of food. Don’t forget your swimming costume, though, because you’re almost guaranteed to get wet at some point. Read More...

    Hard Rock Café Pattaya

    Hard Rock Hotel, 429 Beach Road, North Pattaya
    Beach Foam X Party at Hard Rock Hotel

    The Hard Rock franchise is well-known the world over for its quirky style and great music. From the iconic giant guitar head and “no drugs or nuclear weapons allowed inside” neon sign over the door to the collection of music and movie memorabilia inside, it certainly has the style. The music starts every evening at 18:00 on the Sun & Moon deck, which looks out over Beach Road. The house band starts up at 21:30 and plays into the early hours. The excellent rock groups are frequently rotated, with special guest bands also making regular appearances. The attached Hard Rock Hotel also hosts some of the best foam parties in the region, the Miss Hard Rock beauty contest and the annual guitar festival. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: Sun – Thurs 12:00 – 01:00, Fri – Sun 12:00 – 02:00

    Thai kickboxing is world-famous and Pattaya has more ways to enjoy the sport than most. You can see the professionals at work in shows or championship matches at Max Muay Thai and Pattaya Boxing World on Sukhumvit Road, see rising stars in the amateur leagues at the Fairtex Stadium on Thepprasit Road or watch a bout over a beer on Walking Street, with two rings along the famous road, both surrounded by beer bars. In the last of these options, brave punters can even get in the ring themselves and try their luck against the house fighters! It’s a fast-paced and aggressive sport, which is probably best enjoyed as a spectator. Read More...


    Planet Earth Beach Club

    Soi 16, Jomtien Beach Road
    Planet Earth Beach Club

    While there are several venues around Pattaya which promise to recreate Ibiza’s beach parties, Planet Earth Beach Club comes the closest. The place boasts great dance music from resident and international guest DJs, huge sun loungers, designer swimwear on sale, a swimming pool, a foam machine, amazing drinks deals and authentic Italian gelato. The big weekend parties attract the local high society and a young crowd of fun-loving Thais and tourists, including muscle-bound guys and bikini-clad girls. Jomtien Beach is also only just over the road to complete the beach party experience. Only open during the tourist season, the fun starts late in the morning and usually does end until early the next morning!

    • Opening Hours: 11:00 – 23:00

    Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya

    Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya, 390 Pattaya Second Road, North Pattaya
    Frigg Bar, The Zign Hotel

    The Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya has an impressive assortment of bars and lounges with different vibes for different parts of the night. Watch the sunset by the infinity pool on the 25th floor – which has also hosted some of the city’s best pool parties – before dropping down a floor to The Roof Sky Bar & Restaurant, which has a seaside garden feel and down-tempo beats as the night draws in. If you prefer an indie electro vibe, go down to the quirky Car Bar on the ground floor, with its street chic style, bike chains for coasters and an impressive selection of unique cocktails.

    Beach Road Soi 7

    South Pattaya

    Pattaya’s pink-neon-lit beer bars are renowned for being a little on the seedy side, but it does depend a lot on the area you go to. While not exactly family-friendly, Soi 7 (between Pattaya Beach Road and Second Road) is more about having a good time and a few drinks. The beverages here are far cheaper than they are around Walking Street, with a local beer being as little as 65 baht and a shot of local whiskey being even less, in select bars. Because of this, the street is particularly popular with budget travellers, locals and young expatriates.

    Soi Buakhao

    South Pattaya

    Soi Buakhao is increasingly known as the new Walking Street. Running all the way from Pattaya Klang to Pattaya South Road, the narrow road is somewhat less family-friendly than its more famous predecessor – which is saying something. It attracts an older audience, so has fewer high energy night clubs. Instead, it has more beer bars, ladyboy bars and go-go bars than anywhere else in the city. Notable off-shoots include Action Street (where every single bar is a ladyboy bar) and Soi LK Metro (where the same can nearly be said about go-go bars, but there are also a few highly-regarded sports bars).
