Silom Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Silom

Silom has many nightlife options to discover. Thailand's 'Wall Street' is by day a place of financial institutions, law firms and multinational corporations. By night however, Silom slips out of its suit, transforming into a bustling shopping street and frenetically paced hedonist's playground. Alongside a cramped but creatively stocked night market (think bootleg DVDs, tourist trinkets, T-shirts, fake watches), sit some of the city's most renowned and raucous streets, namely red-light district Patpong, Soi 2 and Soi 4.

Highlights of Silom Nightlife

With its great selection of pubs, clubs and bars, Silom rarely disappoints the party crowd. Fancy sipping a Guinness while watching the latest football match beamed live from Europe? Make your way to Molly Malone's Irish Pub (formerly The Irish X Change) in Soi Convent, or O'Reillys right underneath the Sala Daeng BTS station. Want to experience Silom's naughty side? Head to world-renowned Patpong, where you'll find a procession of tightly packed go-go bars.

Or perhaps you fancy more trendy, more wholesome? Then seek out one of the clubs with live bands or beat-spinning DJs strung along Patpong Road. These get very busy around midnight, and include Radio City, Twilo, Funky Dojos and Lucifers.

Nearby Silom Soi 4 - something of an age-old institution among long-time Bangkok revellers - is also home to a few clubs pushing pulsating beats, including the grotto-like house music club, Tapas, and hip-hop den Luminous (go to Silom clubs for a listing of all venues).

Not far from Sala Daeng BTS Station is Soi Thaniya, the famous 'Little (naughty) Tokyo' with neons signs hanging from facades just like in Japan. The street abonds with really good and affordable Japanese restaurants, but you will have to resist the many pretty ladies inviting you... in Japanese.

Bada Bing Go-Go Bar

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.

DJ Station

DJ Station is the epitcente of Bangkok’s gay community, and can be found on one of the capital’s pinkest streets, Silom Soi 2. This huge nightclub - almost bordering super-club status with its multiple floors, rooms and bars – draws in the masses late on the weekends when things get particularly hot, sweaty and crowded. 

The club usually puts on a drag-show early on with men in dresses miming to classic ballads, whilst the dance floor fills as the night progresses with the relentless techno and house keeping the place pumping into the early hours. Look out for the human-sized bird cages and, whether you like it or not, you will probably get groped. DJ Station opens at 22:00 daily and I.D is a must for all.

Patpong

One of the world's most famous red-light districts, Patpong is where Thailand's Go-Go culture all started. It has even been immortalised in a James Bond chase-sequence.

Soi Thaniya

To label Soi Thaniya as Bangkok’s ‘Little Tokyo’ might be doing the Japanese capital a little bit of an injustice.This Silom street is well-known for its collection of gentleman’s lounges, go-go bars and massage parlours targeting the Japanese market; a little similar to the adjacent Patpong Road, just with no night market, higher prices and all signs translated into Japanese. Most of the bars here require a short elevator journey up, creating an air of mystery as to what lies inside. However, come to Soi Thaniya after 20:00 and there’s an obvious giveaway about what these bars are all about. Dozens of girls, many not wearing too much, pour out into the road to entice in the customers. 

Away from its seedy-side, Soi Thaniya does have a couple of excellent Japanese restaurants, Thai street food vendors and a couple of more laid back bars with only drinks for sale, rather than anything else. 

  • Location: Soi Thaniya (off Silom Road), Bangkok

'Twilo' is the kind of chic open-fronted venue that, if it was plunked in Rome or Paris, would soon be heaving with svelte, young sophisticates sipping cosmopolitans and carousing to sultry deep house. The music is mostly live hip-hop and pop covers geared towards drawing in the largest possible groups of people. It is a fun bar but does have an overtly touristy vibe.
