Top 10 Nightlife in Pattaya

Most Popular Nightlife in Pattaya

Girls, shows, bar games and competing stereos all combine to raise the ante in one huge party zone from Soi 13 to Soi 16 in South Pattaya. Closed to traffic during the evening, the area becomes the famous Walking Street, where A Go-Gos, discos, massage parlours and dozens of bar-beers compete with for your immediate attention. Stroll here for maximum exposure along the main street and adjoining small sois.

Most of the nightlife action geared towards tourists is found in Walking Street, with the densest concentration of bars, massage parlours and discos along the famous neon-drenched strip stretching from Soi 13 to 16. Unique and unruly, it's shut off to traffic during the evening, with raunchy shows, bar games, competing stereos and lots of booze all combining forces to make one huge party zone.

Pubbing and Clubbing along Pattaya Beach Road

If naughty nightlife is just not you, try some traditional entertainment at one of the many pubs about town. For lively live music and dancing, hit Pattaya's enduring disco scene. The music is mostly rowdy US hip hop and Thai pop anthems at ear-shattering volumes. A few venues with hip modern interiors and names like Club Insomnia or Lucifer Disko TK are even sometimes sophisticated. Best time to go: after 21:00

Beer Bars in South Pattaya
Beer Bars in South Pattaya South Pattaya - Open: around midday onwards

They're ramshackle, cheap and loud but often a lot of fun – Pattaya's beer bars are legendary! Some are found in enclosed shop-houses, but most come jam-packed together inside tatty open-plan corrugated sheds around Walking Street and lower Beach Road, each comprising little more than a few stools and raised speakers assembled round a rather sorry-looking central bar. Open: around midday onwards

Jomtien Beach
Jomtien Beach Na Jomtien

Those that don’t head to Pattaya Beach for a night of partying can relax in one of Jomtien’s many bars and restaurants, head to a cultural show like Alankarn, or just chill out around their hotel. There's also a small gay scene and open-front beer bars concentrated along Thappaya Road, Jomtien Complex, Soit Whitehouse and Soi 7. Without a huge crowd of revellers, the atmosphere is a little more ‘authentic’.

Cabaret Show North Pattaya

A must-see while in Pattaya, head over to Tiffany’s or Alcaza. Match dazzling stage sets with blindingly shiny costumes and stunning ladyboys, and you have a show so mind-blowing that it completely shatters the ‘fourth wall’ between audience and entertainers. In a breathless hour-long riot of sounds, colours and lights, experience a theatrical event that spans the entire hemisphere through song, dance or skit. Read More...

Beach Foam X Party at Hard Rock Hotel

Saturdays at the famous American pop culture hotel are party time. The always lively poolside area morphs into a bubbling foam pool, with games, frolics and lots of fun. The milder, toned-down version for kids is between 17:00 and 18:30, while adults coming for the Beach Foam X Party are usually up to their necks in it at not long after 21:30. Location: Hard Rock Hotel, 429 Beach Road, North Pattaya

Muay Thai Matches
Muay Thai Matches South Pattaya - Best time to go: matches start at 19:00 and continue until 23:00

In Pattaya, Beer bars are not only good for drinks or picking up girls – they offer adrenaline-pumping entertainment as well. A number of open-sided bars lining Beach Road and Walking Street host nightly Muay Thai matches for the amusement of tourist spectators and those daring enough to enter the ring. Best time to go: matches start at 19:00 and continue until 23:00

Gay Nightlife in Soi Pattayaland
Gay Nightlife in Soi Pattayaland Pattaya Beach

Pattaya Beach ensures muscle boys, bikers and toy boys are kept happy. Gay bars and A Go-Go joints are centred around the aptly named Boyz Town (Soi Pattayaland 1 & 3). Highlights along these busy, noisy, neon-lit streets include Throb/Splash (325 Pattayaland 3), featuring a fish tank in which well-toned guys glide and dive gracefully through the water in very tight pants. Sunee Plaza is just off the strip, quieter and more private.
