    Best Places to Go at Night in Sukhumvit

    If you visit Bangkok and you intend to party, then Sukhumvit Road will be the centre of your world. This main thoroughfare hosts most of the finest clubs and bars that the city has to offer, not to mention the famous red-light districts of Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza. Soi 11 is always busy, guaranteed to be pumping into the early hours, while the Thong Lor area (Soi 55) attracts a more socialite crowd, with an even split between Thais and foreigners. The BTS Skytrain Line runs directly over Sukhumvit Road making this area the most convenient for travellers to experience this adult’s playground.

    Levels Club & Lounge is a venue with three distinct party zones housed in one connected space, and offers a great alternative to the already rocking nightlife scene on Sukhumvit Soi 11. Combining elements of a terraced bar, classy lounge, and a box-like clubbing room that has one of the best sound-systems in the city, Levels covers a lot of musical ground and tries to provide a little something for everyone. Occasionally they charge an entry fee for special events or on nights with international DJs, but it’s usually free entry. Read More...

    At first sight, Soi Cowboy looks like a fantasy land of bright pink neon, but here fantasies become real for all those searching for the dark side of Bangkok’s nightlife culture; namely, go-go bars. This red-light district has a more laid-back, carnival-like feel to it than other famous go-go districts such as Patpong or Nana Plaza. The colourful streetscape is comprised mainly of middle-aged expats, Japanese and western tourists, and of course a lot of sexily dressed girls. There are more than 20 bars lined one next to the other each following the same formula of a central stage, loud music and scantily clad dancers. Typically, bars here are open from 20:00 to 02:00.

    • Location: Located just opposite of Terminal 21 and less than 100 metres from Sukhumvit Road, between Asoke Road and Sukhumvit Soi 23 (the nearest Skytrain station is Asoke, or MRT station Sukhumvit).
    • MRT: Sukhumvit Station
    • BTS: Asoke

    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. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: 17:00 to 01:00
    • BTS: Thong Lor
    • Address: 45/F, Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit, Sukhumvit Soi 57
    • Tel: +66 (0)2 7970000

    Comprising four unique floors, Grease Nightclub in Bangkok is an all inclusive venue that offers something for everyone – from hardcore clubbers to rooftop stargazers. Specifically the club has a restaurant, dance venue, live music bar and a tree-lined rooftop lounge. Grease Nightclub is located on Sukhumvit Soi 49, in the Piman 49 Complex (a high end collection of shops and restaurants) opposite Samitivej Hospital. The nearest BTS station is Thong Lor but a taxi or motorbike is needed from there. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: 20:00 - Late
    • Location: 46/12-13 Sukhumvit Soi 49
    • BTS: Thong Lor

    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 actually one of two clubs connected together, and guests are free to move between the two to check out the different vibes. Funky Villa next door attracts a more mainstream crowd and has a more eclectic music policy; live acts play up-tempo party tunes for everyone to sing along with (if you can speak Thai), and DJs are encouraged to play a range of chart and R&B tunes. Demo is darker, more demure and rocks out to more base heavy beats. Expect to hear house and tech-house music with elements of more niche electronic genres like dubstep. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: 19:00 – 02:00
    • BTS: Thong Lor
    • Address: Thong Lor Soi 10 (look for the bright lights of Funky Villa, set 30 metres back from the road on the far side of a car park)
    • Tel: +66 (0) 8525 0 2000

    Iron Fairies is a magical bar that is designed like an ironsmith’s workshop: dark and broody, with wrought iron staircases, exposed pipes and dilapidated timber and brick. Bottles fairy dust are stacked in rows, and everywhere you look you could chance upon little iron figurines of the winged creatures that give the bar its name. Open from 18:00 to 02:00, it can be quite a mission to find Iron Fairies so just remember to walk past Thong Lor Soi 10 and keep looking on your right hand side. The closest BTS Station is Thong Lor but you will need a quick taxi from there. A live jazz band starts from 21:00. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: 18:00 – 02:00
    • Location: 394 Thonglor Road, Sukhumvit 55, Bangkok
    • BTS: Thong Lor
    • Tel: +66 (0) 2714 8875

    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. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: 21:00-03:00
    • BTS: Nana
    • Address: 34 Sukhumvit Soi 11
    • Tel: +66-2-252-3274
    • Price Range: Weekends – 600 baht with two free drinks (weekdays - free)

    Located in Sukhumvit Soi 4, Nana Plaza is Bangkok's naughty central. Notorious for its racy themed go-go bars - from school-girl and leather dominatrix to ladyboy – there are three storeys of eye-popping activity all focused around a square-shaped central atrium. Unlike at the better-known Soi Cowboy or Patpong, Nana Plaza is a more ‘adult' scene. That means no families, no markets and few curious tourists. It is still worth a look if you are searching for an exotic visual experience, and a photo to talk about when back home. Read More...

    • Location: Sukhumvit Soi 4
    • Address: Sukhumvit Road, Ekkamai, Bangkok
    • How to get there: walking distance from Nana BTS Skytrain station

    WTF Café and Gallery opened after four friends decided that Bangkok was lacking somewhere to eat, drink and be artistic. It is a short five-minute walk from Thong Lor BTS on Sukhumvit soi 51 and a great place for drinks and dinner in an unpretentious setting. The downstairs bar is reminiscent of a small local café in Europe and on the two floors above lies gallery space hosting unusual art displays changing on a monthly basis. Read More...

    • Opening Hours: Restaurant/bar open Tuesday-Sunday 18:00 – 01:00 Gallery open 15:00 – 22:00
    • Location: Less than three minutes down Sukhumvit soi 51 on the left-hand side in a small alleyway
    • BTS: Thong Lor

    Narz is a nightclub housed inside a glass-fronted mansion with three separate rooms to explore and enjoy. It is a late night club that stays open after most others in the city have closed and has a sleek and modern décor that attracts a wide range of clientele. Of the three types of music on offer – hip hop, house or trance – the hip hop room fills up first, and if you are arriving before 24:00 definitely head upstairs as the other rooms don’t really get going until later. However it is trance music that Narz is most widely known for, with a roster of top-class DJs, a steady stream of guest acts and a crowd consisting of young and mostly Thai revellers, who arrive late and leave as the sun comes up.

    • Opening Hours: 22:00 – 06:00 (closing times can vary depending on the night)
    • MRT: Sukhumvit
    • BTS: Asoke
