Sukhumvit Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Sukhumvit

Sukhumvit Road changes into a different world at night. From Nana to Ekkamai there are many different night spots to be found along it and its many sois, including some of the coolest bars and clubs in the city.

Although for some Sukhumvit is synonymous with expats, many of the sois running off it have shed the tired image of pubs that close at 1am. Head to soi 11 for a great range of funky bars and some great clubs including Bed Supperclub. Thong Lor and Ekkamai offer a eclectic mix too, and those looking for something a bit naughtier should head to Nana or Soi Cowboy. Whether you are looking for classy cocktails or a night of debauchery, Sukhumvit Road will provide.

Sukhumvit Nightlife Guide

Bangkok Go Go Bars

Sukhumvit is notorious for being home to more than its fair share of girls. Nana Plaza (Soi 4) is filled with go-go bars and girls. Neon-lit lane, Soi Cowboy (off Soi 21), is similar but more laid-back. Read More...

Nana Plaza

Nana Entertainment Plaza is notorious for its racy themed go-go bars - from school-girl and leather dominatrix to ladyboy it's not as bright and friendly as Soi Cowboy but with recent renovations, the plaza is now a lot more attractive. Read More...

Soi Cowboy

Named after the cowboy hat-wearing American who opened the first bar in 1970, this red-light district has a more laid-back, convivial feel than Patpong or Nana Plaza. Read More...

Sukhumvit Clubs

Sukhumvit’s extensive network of ‘sois’ (lanes) contains a wide spectrum of clubs with DJs flown in from overseas. With iconic establishments like Bed Supperclub and Q Bar, Sukhumvit Soi 11 is where the jet-setters go to get their nightly dose of fun. Trend-setting Thonglor (Sukhumvit Soi 55), once a sophisticated playground for Bangkok’s glamorous faces, has emerged as a new epicentre for DJ and live band parties, though with a more localised feel than Soi 11. 

AmBar Bangkok

AmBar Bangkok is a rooftop with a difference. Located on the 8th floor of the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel on Sukhumvit 15, it doesn’t quite scrape the sky. But what it lacks in stature, it more than makes up with a great range of drinks, food and a chilled out atmosphere that is far more enjoyable than some of the more famous rooftops in Bangkok. Add to that the great range of events and deals that always seem to be happening here and you can see why it has become a popular spot for those who usually spend their time on Sukhumvit 11. Read More...

Opening Hours: 16:00 until 02:00
Location: Four Points by Sheraton, Sukhumvit Soi 15
Tel: +66 (0)2 309 3288

Bash Nightclub

Bash Nightclub is at the forefront of a new-breed of Bangkok clubs, filling a hole in the clubbing scene by offering all-night partying in a cool and classy environment. This experience is reserved for the hardcore, opening at midnight and carrying on until around dawn (although there is no official closing time). When all the other bars and clubs on Soi 11 are closing down for the night, Bash is just heating up and attracts a happy mix of clubbers who live for the weekend. Read More...

Opening Hours: 24:00 - very late
Address: 37 Sukhumvit soi 11
Price Range: 300 baht with one drink

Beer Vault at Four Points

Beer Vault on the ground floor of the Four Points by Sheraton delivers atmosphere and charm that is usually lacking in most hotel bars, combined with hearty dishes and one of the best selections of unusual beers in Bangkok. So rare is a chilled out, friendly bar in this area of the city that many locals have made it their regular joint, an impressive feat in this ever changing environment. The bar has a series of weekly events like the quiz night on a Thursday, and monthly offers on rare speciality beers from around the world.

Opening Hours: every day from 11:00 until 01:00

BTS: Asok

Bed Supperclub

Bed Supperclub is currently closed.

Bed Supperclub's tubular elliptical structure and sleek, white, space-pod interior are trademarks of the club that changed the Bangkok clubbing scene forever when it opened in 2002. Offering cutting-edge house and electronic music with regular appearances from world-class DJs, Bed Supperclub gave Bangkok a style and sophistication it was ready for. Since then new clubs have opened with styles of their own and Bed Supperclub isn’t regarded as a standout club as it was before; however, it also boasts a distinctive dining concept where customers are served dinner while lazing on soft white beds with chilled music and personalised service.

The Comedy Club Bangkok

The Comedy Club Bangkok is the first dedicated English language comedy venue in the city, which is a reason to cheer for fans and performers of standup, ‘improv’ and other forms of live comedy. Currently, performances are scheduled for Friday nights only, but the intention is to grow naturally while fostering a community of standup comedy fans as well as nurturing would-be performers.

Demo Nightclub

With bare brick walls covered in graffiti, exposed piping and metal shutters instead of doors, you could be forgiven for thinking Demo is an abandoned warehouse, but it is actually one of the coolest and most fashionable nightclubs in Bangkok. Demo is very popular with a young and wealthy set of Bangkokians who pull up out front in their Audi’s and Benz’ and then go crazy, partying harder than at most other clubs in the city. There are two rooms: the neon-orange bar area close to the entrance plays hip hop and is a nice place to warm up, while the main room is the domain of cutting-edge house and electro. There is also a large outdoor area which is a popular place to hang out and chat to fellow party people without the need to shout. Read More...

Glow Nightclub

Glow Nightclub in Bangkok is a party venue with a strictly underground dance music policy that is constantly rocking to bass-heavy beats. Anyone wanting the most cutting-edge house music in the city should seek out this dark, loud, diminutive club. Bangkok is rightly regarded as one of the world’s most vibrant party metropolises with world-class parties, clubs and events taking place on a nightly basis – but Glow offers something a little bit different: a place where your love of music is more important than the label on your back.

Q Bar

Funky, fashionable and unwaveringly popular, Q Bar in Bangkok has been spinning quality dance and party music to the city’s socialite crowd for over ten years. This bar-slash-club is more exclusive than most other clubs in its vicinity, and patrons really make an effort and dress to impress. Q Bar is not the kind of place you would stumble on as it’s located quite a distance down Sukhumvit Soi 11 (one of the main party hotspots in Bangkok), and that’s just the way the management like it. The closest BTS station is Nana, as Soi 11 is at the base of the sky train steps – from there you can walk or take a taxi. From Sukhumvit Road, follow Soi 11, past the spaceship-looking frame of Bed Supperclub, until the road turns left. Q Bar Bangkok is 15 metres down on your right. Read More...

Bombay Bar

If you'd like to see how locals party and have fun, Bombay Bar is the place to check out. One of the top clubs for Thais, Bombay Bar covers a fairly big spread over two floors. It's usually frequented by very young night-lovers - university students or, let's say, people in their 20's. Drinks are nothing special and prices are average. Mainstream music is played until a certain time and then a rock band takes over; expect Thai songs and a vibrant Thai nightlife scene.

Opening Hours: 19:00 - 01:00
Location: Soi Thonglor
BTS: Thong Lor
Tel: +66 (0)2 714 7800

Bully's Bar

Want to retreat from the heat? Here's the right place, though a bit pricey compared to other bars around the area. If you don't mind the pocket burn, it's a good spot to escape the outside heat for a cool drink. A sports bar type place, Bully's features several TV screens and four pool tables. Their menu offers a good range of meals too, including both popular western and Thai dishes. There are a few pool hostesses floating around but they'll leave you alone unless you are up for a game. Unlike many other places in the area, it's closed up and they have the air-con on all the time. The perfect place to recharge your batteries.

BTS: Nana
Tel: +66 (0)2 656 4609

Bus Stop

A relatively quiet place on Sukhumvit Soi 4. This semi-open bar and garden is an escape from the blatant sex trade elsewhere on the soi. Although it does have its share of bar girls, they are not very aggressive in their sales techniques and are quite happy just to chat (if buy a drink). Some of the city's hippest and trendiest clubs are found around Sukhumvit Road.

Opening Hours: 17:00 - 01:00
Location: Sukhumvit Soi 4, Just up the road from Nana Plaza
BTS: Nana
Tel: +66 (0)2 251 9222

Cheap Charlies

Where in lower Sukhumvit can you drink for a pittance and meet interesting, unsleazy farang? The answer is not some haughty hotel lounge, nor some austere restaurant, but this 20-something Bangkok institution - little more than a wooden shack and a few stools that spill across the street.

Every night, a convivial blend of expats and clubbers swarm here to dose up on beers before heading somewhere pricier (at 60 baht a bottle Cheap Charlie's delivers on its name). A definite contender for Bangkok's most bizarre drinking hole, be sure to check out the oddities accumulated over the years - animal skulls, tribal masks and other strange curios (the toilet bares a classic sign: 'no shitting'). Tucked away down a narrow, predominantly residential soi, remember also to be a gent and stand aside for passing cars. Read More...

Opening Hours: 16:30 - 01:00 except Sunday

BTS: Nana

The interior sports a back-lit stained-glass wall, reminiscent of a medieval church. There’s also an outdoor deck out front, with a large-screen LCD display for live sports and international news.

Opening Hours: 17:30 - 1:00
Location: Sukhumvit Soi 24
BTS: Phrom Phong


Quality live soul, jazz and funk all get a look in at this popular large saloon pub. However, blues is its 'raison d'etre' - each night one of five local blues bands churns out some of the best in town. Its size doesn't dampen the atmosphere, later in the evening the place really buzzes. Barbeque grill cooking and lip-smacking burgers are almost as popular as the sounds.

Octave Rooftop Bar & Lounge

Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok waited a long time for its very own rooftop bar, and then finally one came along and showed the rest of them how it should really be done. Octave Rooftop and Lounge is more than a place for watching the sunset or having a romantic meal. No rooftop bar in the city has a 360 degree view of Bangkok that matches this, and the top floor of this three level venue is the highest spot in the city for a party. Starting on the 45th floor of the Marriot Hotel Sukhumvit, a three minute walk from Thong Lor Skytrain Station, Octave Rooftop Bar and Lounge opens at 17:00. Although the location is handy, it is slightly off the main tourist trail meaning that it is usually easy to grab a seat at one of Octave’s tables with a view. Read More...

Shades of Retro

An apt name for a bar where colour and style are definitely part of its makeup, Shades of Retro feels as cosy and laid-back as your own living room. The location is hard to find, as it’s tucked away in a residential neighbourhood where you wouldn’t expect to find a bar, but this is one of those places you should make an extra effort to find.

Housed inside a three-storey townhouse building, it has a glass-encased terrace out front – imagine a European conservatory. Inside is jam-packed with mix-and-match furniture, funky lamps, old stereos and TVs from the 50s and a horde of collectibles strewn across wooden shelves. The bar serves up strong, delicious cocktails – no food as such but the moment you sit down, you’ll get a refillable bowl of popcorn to munch on all night. Lounge away with cool, chilled out music. It’s no wonder that the place is packed really fast almost every night.

Opening Hours: 15:00 – 01:00
Location: Sukhumvit 55 (Soi Thararom 2, Thonglor, near Thonglor police station)

Song Saleung

What an adventure this unruly live music bar is. After weaving past security and the snazzy al fresco area, we could barely move for the young, affluent throng. Finding a table, and keeping it, was a mission; as was dodging the toes of fellow patrons as we squeezed our way to the toilet or attempted a dance. Persevere though, because you may well be rewarded: girls with a barrage of hot guys wanting to top up your glass; guys, with a flurry of phone-numbers from cute girls wanting help with their English. Just be careful you don't step on anyone's toes!

Location: 387/23-24 Soi Thonglor 21, Sukhumvit 55
Tel: +66 (0)2 712 9118


Best described as a cotemporary up market Australian Bar, Tenderloins is popular with the after work crowd and the first port of call for sport fans who prefer a more intimate setting. Serving imported steaks, wine and a variety of beers – it’s obviously not just the sport attracting people.

The Alchemist Bar

The Alchemist Bar is the place to go if you are exploring Sukhumvit Soi 11 and looking to drink somewhere unpretentious but don’t fancy slumming it at Cheap Charlie’s.

The prices are reasonable and the music is cool; this bar is just the place to start the night or spend a low-key evening. Read More...

The Iron Fairies

Do you believe in magic, fairies and fantasy tales of the imagination? Even if you don’t, The Iron Fairies is still worth checking out. Dimly lit from the outside and locked up behind an old, solid wooden door, this chic two-storey hole-in-the-wall bar is easy to miss if you don’t look carefully. Inside is as mysteriously dark, with little space where magic seems to ooze from every inch – a metal spiral staircase that rises up and stops in mid-air, cast-iron gargoyles and fairies lurking on shelves and walls, a Singer sewing machine that seems to be misplaced but actually is not.

The Iron Fairies is a bar/ironsmith workshop where you can savour the taste of dreams and imagination through its heady mix of cocktails, wine and lingering live jazz tunes. It also offers a few but well-executed burgers, each served up on a slab of wooden cutting board. Try the signature absinthe cocktail, if you dare. This is one bar not to miss. Read More...

The Long Table

Residing on the 25th floor of Column Tower, Long Table is a hidden jewel in Bangkok’s crown. Standing tall over the city, the panoramic view is exasperated by the nostalgic house beats that roll from the glass facade into the night sky. The same group who brought the city Bed Supperclub returned with an even more modern and gimmicky gesture – sharing a meal at one table. Believed to be the longest table in the world, it seats around 70 people. The bar seeks to redefine the dining and drinking experience in Bangkok.

Comprising dimly light hallways, intricate lighting and the clever trickery of mirrors to create the illusion of more space, the décor is a real treat. With such a cutting edge concept you get the feeling that if Long Table were in New York the entry queues would be somewhere over in Sathorn. For those looking for a unique experience, a chic cocktail or chilled glass of wine, Bangkok’s newest rooftop bar will not fail to impress. Read More...
