Sathorn Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Sathorn

Many modish hotels and serviced apartments in Sathorn usually feature their own bars or clubs. Zuk Bar at Sukhothai Hotel and Met Bar at Metropolitan Hotel are among the city's best. One of  Bangkok's most popular nightlife experiences is drinks at Vertigo, the trendy rooftop bar at Banyan Tree Hotel. The city views are fantastic (covered by the steep prices on the drinks menu), and well worth a visit. Get there before sunset and dress nicely if you want to get in (no beach shorts, vests, sandals or flip-flops).

For a full-blown racy nightlife scene, however, head to Silom and visit Patpong's notorious go-go bars.

Tawandang Brewery

Tawandang German Brewery is big, brash and a lot of fun for a group night out in Bangkok, and even though a one litre glass of weizen beer isn’t the most traditional of Thai drinks, Bangkokians have certainly taken it to heart. Read More...

Sathorn Bars and Nightlife

Met Bar

When it first opened in 1998, London's Met Bar became the hottest nighttime haunt west of Ibiza. Now its newest sister, The Met Bar Bangkok at Metropolitan Hotel Bangkok, delivers the same for the Asian capital, answering a sophisticated need for privacy and energy in a space reserved for hotel guests and members only (although they are known to be flexible).

At night, it morphs into a sultry, lounge-style member’s bar with deep chairs and wine-dark walls. Lighting is soft and moody. Bar staff - 'mixologists' - create bespoke Martinis while headline DJs spin worldwide lounge sounds. Drinks start at 200 baht and there's no cover charge. At its busiest and best when hosting an international act or one-off event.

Opening Hours: 16:00 - 02:00
Location: Metropolitan Hotel Bangkok, 27 South Sathorn Road
BTS: Sala Daeng or Lumpini MRT
Tel: +66(0)26253333

Park Society Rooftop Bar

Rooftop bars seem to be the latest craze in Bangkok, so much so that I wonder just how many cities in the world have more rooftop bars than here? And open-air bars are popular for a reason! The weather during half the year is safe, you never have to worry about rain, and during the 'rainy season' you can still enjoy many happy hours under the open skies. Actually, the cloudy skies of the wet season are a lot nicer than during high season, when all you get on your photo is a plain blue sky. Boring... Read More...

Tawandang Brew House

With a seating capacity of 1,600, you will be hard pushed to find a bigger drinking venue in Bangkok than this German beer hall, that presents its own brand of ‘musical theatre’.  With live entertainment that includes singing, dancing and instrumentals, the stage show is a visual extravaganza well worth seeing.

Tawandang takes its cue from a traditional German brewery while ironically attracting a predominantly Thai audience. The food here, (pork knuckles and som-tam come highly recommended) consists of Thai snacks that go down particularly well with beer or two. Open seven nights a week, the place attracts a regular crowd throughout the week and whether you venture in on a Wednesday or a Saturday evening you will find the venue packed with people enjoying themselves. The general format is to eat, drink and dance, and in this respect you can’t really go wrong with a night out at Tawandang. Read More...

Opening Hours: 20:00-01:00
Location: 462/59 Nang Linchi Road
BTS: Chong Nonsi

Vertigo – Moon Bar

Situated on the rooftop of the Banyan Tree, the 360 degree panorama offers a bird’s eye view of Bangkok, providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy some sunset cocktails 61 floors above ground level. Here, you really get the sense that you are floating mid air with the cool night’s breeze the bar is built in a way where as there is just a sheet of glass between you and vertical drop.

It is however, extremely safe and nor the sort of place you are likely to have an accident. You can choose between the bridge that links the restaurant and bar to enjoy a cocktail or up on the decking surrounding the bar where sofas and plush seats offer the perfect base to enjoy the view.  Read More...

Opening Hours: 17:00-01:00
Location: The Banyan Tree Bangkok, 21/100 Sathorn Road
BTS: Sala Daeng or Lumpini MRT
Tel: +66(0)2679-1200


If you can imagine the Moon Bar at Vertigo being one end of the nightlife scale in Sathorn then Wongs would be the other end. Having been open over twenty years, this Bangkok institution has seen some changes. All of which are documented on the walls which are covered with photographs of customers, both past and present.

Open until the last person leaves the bar has a policy of drink now and pay later, but few escape without paying later, so we suggest you pay as you go or keep your bottles together and pay when you leave to avoid confusion.Wongs has one of the best music collections in Bangkok, much of it still on VCR. A nostalgia inducing bar, you can expect to spend the evening watching old Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan gigs.

Opening Hours: 10:00 – till the last person leaves
Location: Soi Sribumphen
MRT: Lumpini
