39 Best Nightlife in Sukhumvit

Where to Go at Night in Sukhumvit

    If you visit Bangkok and you intend to party, then Sukhumvit Road will be the center 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 and 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's Sukhumvit Line runs directly over Sukhumvit Road making this area the most convenient for travelers to experience this adult’s playground.

    Soi Cowboy

    At first sight, Soi Cowboy looks like a fantasy land of bright pink neon. But fantasies here 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 colorful 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 8pm to 2am.

    Octave

    Octave Rooftop and Lounge is more than a place for watching the sunset or having a romantic meal. Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok waited a long time for its very own rooftop bar, and then finally Octave came along and showed the rest of them how it should really be done.

    No rooftop bar in the city has a 360-degree view of Bangkok that matches this, and the top floor of this 3-level venue is among the highest spots in the city for a party. The Octave Rooftop Bar experience starts on the 45th floor of the Marriot Hotel Sukhumvit, a 3-minute walk from Thong Lor Skytrain Station.

    Location: 45th-49th Floor, Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit, 2 Sukhumvit Soi 57, Bangkok 10110, Thailand

    Occasionally, they charge an entry fee for special events or on nights with international DJs, but it’s free entry most of the time.

    Beam Nightclub

    Beam Nightclub Bangkok is one of the liveliest dance clubs in the city, bringing underground house and techno music to Bangkok’s bass heads. The music policy is strictly adhering to the ‘cooler’ elements of the dance music scene so don’t expect to hear vocal EDM tracks. The music style you're most likely to hear is minimal and deep tech-house in the bare, dark main room that is more reminiscent of European dance clubs than the glitzy and glamorous style of partying often preferred by Thais. The VOID Acoustics sound system at Beam Club Bangkok is incredibly good, as is the LED laser and light show.

    Location: 72 Soi Sukhumvit 55, Klongton Nua, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand

    Nana Plaza

    Nana Plaza is Bangkok's naughtiness central, located on Sukhumvit Soi 4. Notorious for its racy themed go-go bars, there are 3 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's still worth a look if you are searching for an exotic visual experience, and a story to talk about when back home, but be prepared to be shocked.

    Narz is a nightclub housed inside a glass-fronted mansion with 3 separate rooms to explore and enjoy. It's 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.

    If you’re arriving before midnight, definitely head upstairs as the other rooms don’t really get going until later. Even so, it's 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.

    Brew Pub

    Brew Beers and Ciders in Bangkok has a large stock of beers, ciders and ales. It’s the place for anyone who tires of the predictable Chang, Singha and Tiger which make up Thailand’s usual selection. At Brew, there’s an unbelievable range of draft and bottled beers from microbreweries around the world.

    As with other imported non-essentials, imported beers are subjected to heavy taxes, so don’t expect a bargain here – expect to pay around 250 baht a beer and up to 300 baht for stronger or more unusual Belgian abbey beers. Brew is in one of the most fashionable districts in the city, a favorite of rich young Thais and many foreigners yearning for a taste of the world’s best beers.

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's 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 nearby Sukhumvit Soi 11.

    Cielo Sky Bar Bangkok

    Cielo Sky Bar hits the right notes with a great view, affordable prices and plenty of front-row seats for the sunset. With so many rooftops in Bangkok, it’s important to stand out from the crowd, and though it has a slightly out-of-the-way location, it’s worth the trip to see the 180-degree cityscape from the 46th floor.

    The easiest way to get to Cielo Sky Bar is to travel to the Phra Khanong BTS Skytrain station and use exit 3. From here, it’s a 5-minute walk to the Luk Condominium building.

    The layout of the bar is typical of an American sports bar with a mixture of high stools and tables. There's a small upstairs area for private parties. Everywhere you look is the classic Hooters color scheme of white on orange, not least on the girls’ uniforms. The girls all speak great English and are as chatty as they can be when not pouring drinks or performing their dance routine. The group dance is scheduled every 30 minutes.

    Shades of Retro feels as cozy and laidback as your own living room. Tucked away in a residential part of Sukhumvit, it's one of those places you should make an extra effort to find. The bar has a glass-encased terrace out front, while the main area has mismatched furniture, funky lamps, old stereos and TVs from the '50s, and collectables strewn across wooden shelves. The bar also serves up strong and delicious cocktails.

    Location: 808/12 Soi Thara Rom 2, 55 Sukhumvit Road, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand

    Demo & Funky Villa

    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’s actually one of the coolest and most fashionable nightclubs in Bangkok.

    Demo is one of 2 clubs connected together, and guests are free to move between the 2 venues 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 bass-heavy beats. Expect to hear house and tech-house music with elements of more niche electronic genres like dubstep.

    Location: 225/9 Thonglor Soi 10, Sukhumvit Rd, Khlong Tan, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 9pm to 2am
