Cabaret shows offer some of the finest night-time entertainment in Bangkok with shows that are jam-packed with glitz, glam and a touch of humor. The performers are world-class and the draw-card for busloads of tourists every night.

    We have selected some of the most popular Bangkok's cabaret shows for you. Most have at least 2 shows every night, and after the shows, you'd be able to take photographs of your favorite performers (generous tips are politely encouraged).

    Founded in 1988, Calypso Cabaret has long been hailed as one of the cabaret pioneers in Thailand. Located within Asiatique The Riverfront, Calypso Cabaret delivers extravagant Broadway-style shows, as well as Thai classical dance, a comical Geisha repertoire, and Chinese ballads. Two showtimes take place every day, so it’s a good idea to book ahead as seats get filled up very quickly, especially on weekends.

    Playhouse Cabaret

    Playhouse Cabaret is a family-friendly cabaret show in Bangkok, with stints in Phuket and Chiang Mai. While you’ll see plenty of feather boas and sequins, the hour-long show stands out from most transvestite cabarets as it emphasizes on showmanship (excuse the pun), with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, instead of erotic dancing. There are over 10 separate acts, during which you’ll enjoy renditions of Christina Aguilera, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Swan Lake, and a comedy compere who keeps the laughs coming.
