The best nightclubs in Pattaya are a big part of what makes the city such a famous party destination. Mostly found along the famous Walking Street, they have been pulling in the party animals looking for a lively night on the town for decades. Several of them boast cutting-edge sound and lighting systems and are increasingly attracting big-name international DJs.

    The main musical choices are house, EDM, trance, hip-hop and R&B, with some of the larger, multi-room clubs playing the full spectrum. While most places have a few show dancers, the nightclubs of Pattaya are mostly about enjoying the music and having a good time, unlike the other nightlife venues you'll find along Walking Street.


    Mixx Discotheque Pattaya

    Bali Hai Plaza

    Mixx Discotheque is the most glitzy and glamorous of the nightclubs in Pattaya and is incredibly popular as a result. Located on the upper floor of the building just after the end of Walking Street, it has over 900 square meters of floor space divided into 2 rooms – the luxuriously-styled Rouge Club playing hip-hop and R&B music and the modern and funky Crystal Palace playing house and trance. A young, lively crowd is attracted by big-name local and international DJs, creating a fun vibe and keeping the place packed throughout the night.

    Location: 311 Moo 10, Bali-Hai Plaza 3rd Floor, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150, Thailand

    Open: Friday–Saturday from 9 pm to 2 am

    Lucifer 2.0

    Walking Street

    Lucifer 2.0 is one of Pattaya's older, best-established Walking Street clubs, albeit brought up to date with an extensive renovation. It's still widely regarded as the best place in Pattaya for hip-hop. The club is divided into 2 neighborhoods, both of which share the same Hell-themed design, like the interior of an infernal cavern. The front area is just like a regular and pretty relaxed bar while the main room, further in, has an excellent live group and speakers taller than half the clubbers! Not one of the biggest clubs on the street, but it is certainly one of the most popular and is generally packed by 11 pm.

    Location: Walking St, Pattaya City, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150, Thailand


    Candy Shop

    Walking Street

    Candy Shop looks a bit like a beach club from the outside, with palm trees, fountains and big soft chairs and sofas. Further in, you’ll find a long central bar, a small but busy dance floor and a great live act playing hip-hop and R&B from 9 pm onwards. Despite the fact that the space immediately around the stage gets a little bit cramped, there is loads of barely-used space behind it, where you will find a couple of pool tables and the toilets. One of the older names on Walking Street, Candy Shop is particularly popular with the local Thais.

    Location: Walking St, Pattaya City, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150, Thailand

    Marine Disco

    Walking Street

    Marine Disco is the original nightclub in Pattaya. It has been on Walking Street for decades and remains extremely popular with locals and tourists. It has been heavily modernized, with bright LED screens along the front and modern light and sound systems inside, so it does not show its venerable age. Playing house and EDM music, Marine gets really busy around 1 am and remains that way until the early morning.

    Location: 114 Walking St, Pattaya City, Amphoe Bang Lamung, Chon Buri 20260, Thailand


    Club Insomnia Pattaya

    Walking Street

    Located above the popular iBar, at about the mid-point along Walking Street, Club Insomnia boasts some stylish décor, great sound and light systems and a large but very busy dance floor, broken up with small stages for show dancers. Busiest after midnight, particularly toward the end of the week, the calendar is dotted with regular special themed nights that are always fun and lively. Impressive resident and occasional international guest DJs play a good mix of hip-hop, house and EDM tracks and beverages prices are pretty reasonable too, making it a popular place with tourists and locals alike.

    Location: 110/2 Walking St, Pattaya City, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 5 pm to late

    Phone: +66 (0)38 711 322


    808 Night Club

    Walking Street

    Located directly above Candy Shop, 808 has probably the most stylish and innovative designs of any club in Pattaya. It consists of a lot of small tiered neighborhoods leading steadily down to the brightly-lit main bar close to the stage, giving the place an almost Colosseum-like shape. This does mean that, while you are your friends can enjoy a certain degree of separation around one of the many tables, it also makes dancing a little trickier as there is no large single flat floor. Playing great house and EDM tracks, it is a chic and trendy place that earns its tagline of “First Class Clubbing”.

    Location: Walking St, Pattaya City, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150, Thailand
