What to Do at Night in Siam
Shopping, cinemas, bowling, karaoke, some live entertainment and that's about it. Siam doesn't offer much in the way of nightlife. However, there are a few pubs, clubs and bars scattered around, most catering to young fashionable locals.
Siam Square has a Hard Rock Cafe that is recommended for live music. Busy every night, nightclub complex Concept CM2, beneath the Novotel Hotel on Siam Square, is worth a visit if you're looking for a boogie. There's a great live band playing every night, International DJ's playing from time to time, and a popular hip-hop room.Read More

Bar @ Siam Square
Launched with the 'interactive bar' concept, Bar @Siam Square has been crafted to appeal to the post-work cocktail crowd, or those looking for traditional pub-style entertainment. Architecturally it's a treat – dark and snazzy, with sleek comfy furnishings, soft vibrant lighting and modular paneling on ceilings and walls lending a sexy, futuristic feel.
Meanwhile, no less than 13 plasma screens screening wall-to-wall sports, pool tables, arcade games and a pinball machine bring to mind a trendy bachelor pad, though there's a cocktail, wine list and international food menu that should appeal to the girls too. Don't miss the Interactive Happy Hour Game (until 22:00), where after ordering drinks you press a buzzer to try and stop flashing lights on 'Free' or 'Half Price!' Afterwards, the wall here slowly disappears, the place merging with Concept CM2: the Novotel Siam Square's 11-year-strong and still very popular nightclub. Those dining or drinking here get free entry.

Coco Walk in Bangkok is a lively little alleyway off Phayathai Road in the heart of the city, perfectly set up some bar hopping, Thai-style. The small soi of bars, pubs and restaurants lies in the shadow of the huge Ratchathewi BTS Skytrain Station, meaning that although this might not be the most picturesque drinking spot in town, it’s certainly one of the most convenient – especially if you’re staying in the one of dozens of hotels in the surrounding Pratunam or Ratchathewi area.
Particularly popular with university students, some might turn their noses up at Coco Walk’s slightly ‘rough around the edges’ feel (it’s been around for decades), but Read More...

More entertainment complex than club, this stylish modern basement beneath the Novotel Siam Square Hotel pulls in an eclectic mix of tourists and girls every night of the week. The sprawling main room is focussed around a stage, with a dance-floor and many raised tables and stools fringing it.
Here the all-singing, all-dancing All Star Band plays the latest R&B, hip-hop, dance, pop and rock hits (Thursday through to Tuesday). In between their energising sets, DJ's Bom, Kriss and Ex serve up similarly commercial sounds, pumping the latest house and dance tracks while also working up a frenzy with promo competitions and crowd-rousing banter. They also fly in international DJ's for special guest appearances (check our Club Nights section for weekly events schedule).
Those preferring to bump and grind can do so in the suitably moody Boom Room. Adjoining the main room, the latest hip-hop and R&B tracks are spun here. There's also a rather sexy looking new adjoining venue Bar@Siam, offering sleek, comfy furnishings alongside sports TVs, pool tables, air hockey, international food and pinball machines. There's an extensive drinks menu offered throughout, with cocktails, wines, spirits, beers, even champagne available. Service throughout is quick and friendly with bars at each end and plenty of table waiters roaming the floor.

Mixx Discotheque in Bangkok is a nightclub in Siam and is our favourite place for an after-hours party. The club has two rooms: the main room is dedicated to hip hop and party pop, while the cave-like backroom is the place for more beat-heavy house music. Since its opening in 2010 Mixx Bangkok has become a popular place to dance until sunrise. It is well-liked by young international and Thai models thanks to the free entrance and drinks offers. Entry for mere mortals is 350 baht and comes with a free drink. Mixx is located in the basement of the Intercontinental Hotel, only a short walk from the BTS at Read More...

This atmospheric bar perched atop Centara Grand’s rooftop feels rather out of this world, thanks to its clever lighting design and spaceship-themed décor. With the stars above your head and the bustle of downtown Bangkok a distant below, Red Sky sets the scene for a romantic evening. Cosy up on the sofa and order a glass of wine from a selection of 200 labels or try an imaginative concoction from the martini bar. Food is more like culinary art – the menu is not extensive but one of the most creative in Bangkok’s gourmet dining scene. Live jazz entertainment and unrivalled 360-view from the 55th floor top off the experience. Read More...

The Roof Restaurant at Siam@Siam Hotel has impressive views over the old town towards the river, and it is very easy to get to, only a two-minute walk from the BTS skytrain station at National Stadium.

It’s open every evening from 18:00 until 23:00, perfect for catching the sunset and enjoying the ribbons of red light winding along the city’s ring road.

Scala Cinema in Siam Square offers a more modest one-screen experience compared to the large complex situated in Siam Paragon just across the road. Built in 1967, this exquisitely maintained movie theatre is worth a trip not only for the bargain priced seats and popcorn, but also for the retro setting. From the tickets to the building, everything here has been preserved and it is worth a trip just to stand in the domed-ceiling entrance and be transported to another age. Read More...

Spasso nightclub at Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok is renowned as one of the fanciest nightlife venues in the city. It’s been one of the best places to party for over 20 years and still attracts a more mature crowd who are looking for a fun and frivolous atmosphere but with creature comforts, such as table service and a menu of finger food to go along with their drinks. Entry is free (except on the special themed nights) and it’s worth noting a smart casual dress code applies.
The entertainment at Spasso combines live music from the house band, Diesel, interspersed with DJ sets. The band do a great job of Read More...
