One Night in Bangkok Thailand – How to Party Like a Rock Star
Bangkok is one hell of a big city. Without knowing where to go, you’ll either miss out on some great places or get trapped in tourist areas like Khao San Road.
If you find yourself with only one night in Bangkok, follow our beginners guide. Although you’ll need at least a month to visit all the great bars and clubs, we will highlight some of the nightlife hot spots which shouldn’t be missed.
One Night in Bangkok Thailand Guide:
Time to get some dinner. For the nicest restaurant in Bangkok, make a reservation for “The Dome at Lebua” (http://www.lebua.com/en/the-dome-dining/). Not for those low on money, a three course meal with wine will range 7,000 – 10,000 baht each person. (Featured in the movie, Hangover Part 2)
Banyan Tree Hotel – this 5 star hotel has one of the nicest roof top bars in Thailand. The drinks are well made and the view of the entire city is incredible. Drinks will range from 200 – 350 baht. Not the cheapest place to go for drinks, but a similar place in New York or London costs 4 times the price.
Located on 21/100 South Sathon Road
We’ve traveled the world and partied in some of the most exciting places on earth. One thing we have learned is that every epic night always starts with something low key. Whether that is one drink on a roof top bar or a few games of pool to begin the night. Go have some innocent fun.
Near Nana Plaza is one of the best places to play pool in Thailand, called “Ball in Hand.” The tables are professional and in new condition. Not many women around, but a great place to grab a couple drinks with some friends and shot some pool before things start to get a bit crazy. And trust us, things will only get crazy from here on out…
This is also only 2 minutes walk from your next place.
Located on Sukhumvit Soi 4
Nana Plaza time. If you’ve never been, imagine an outdoor three story mall filled with strip clubs. This place has well over 30 strip clubs full of naked Thai women.
Don’t spend too much time in one place. Get one drink in each place, and then move to the next. Each place has their pros and cons.
Located on Sukhumvit Soi 4
Three must see places in Nana Plaza:
– Angel Witch (One of my favorite spots. They have some amazing shows on stage. See it for yourself)
– Spankys (Lots of spankings and a shower with a girl or two in it)
– Rainbow (Nearly 40 girls on the stage at one time)
Note: There are two other places similar to Nana Plaza in Bangkok. They are Soi Cowboy and Patpong Road. Soi Cowboy is an entire street dedicate to GoGo and strip clubs. Patpong Road is better known by tourists, but it sucks. The women are not that great looking and nearly every tourist has a story about being ripped off in Patpong Road.
Skip Patpong and visit Nana or Soi Cowboy for your Bangkok GoGo bar experience.
Assuming you didn’t take one of the girls in Nana and on your way home, it is now time for some clubs. Below are some of our favorite night clubs in Bangkok:
1- RCA (Stands for Royal City Avenue)
This street is full of different dance clubs. One of the best places for tourists to go for Thai “good girls.” Checkout Route 66 and Onxy.
Located in RCA Block C, Rama 9 Road
2- Levels Club
Trendy Nightclub with Mixture of good girls and freelancers. Entrance charge is free.
Located on Sukhumvit Soi 11
Mostly freelancer prostitutes. Entrance charge is 300 baht.
Located in Ambassador Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 11
4- Q Bar
If you have a couple friends, this is a great place to split a bottle of Vodka. Also a good place to start your evenings. Features a nice outdoor bar and a dance club full of freelancers.
Located on Soi Sukhumvit 11
Gods of Thailand Tip: Split a bottle of Grey Goose vodka among friends for 3,000 baht.
This club is hit or miss. Don’t bother going here if it’s not Friday or Saturday.
Located on Sukhumvit 23
Now that the normal clubs are closed or closing, it is now time for the after party clubs. Here are our three of our favorite after party clubs:
A nice club which is full just about every night of the week. Has a cover of 300 baht which comes with one drink. Or free entrance if you eat at the V8 diner which is attached. Most nights will have some very nice looking girls. About 75% working girls and 25% good girls.
Located on Sukhumvit Soi 12
One of the best nightclubs in Bangkok. Usually filled with about 75% Thai hookers and 25% “good girls”.
Located at President Tower Phloen Chit
Very similar to Bossy club. Is full most nights of week with freelancers. Cover charge is 300 baht which includes one free drink.
Located on Soi Rong Mueang 1
Gods of Thailand Tip: Never pay for a taxi if you are going to Bossy or Spicy. Taxi drivers get an incentive for taking you there from the establishment. Just tell the driver you are going to Bossy and want a free taxi ride. 90% will take you for free.
4- Scratch Dog
Out of the three places, this is mostly a Thai club. Full of good girls every night of the week with a few freelancers which usually hang around the bar. We recommend you order a bottle and get a table in a central location.
There is also a cover charge of 400 baht.
Located in Windsor Suites Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 20
Gods of Thailand Tip: If you hate paying an entrance charge, no problem. If you buy a bottle at any of these places, the cover is free. Also, if you are going to be in Bangkok for a couple days, do not finish your bottle. Have them hold the bottle for you. They will give you a card which will give you free cover for your next trip and save the bottle.
After 6am the clubs start to die down. If you don’t have a girl by now, then you better get one. In fact, if you don’t have a girl by 4:30am, you’ll be left with slim pickings.
Good morning. Three things just happened:
1- You woke up alone in your hotel
2- You woke up next to at least one girl in your hotel
3- You woke up next to a girl in her place
If number 3 has happened, there is a good chance you have no idea where the hell you are. We’ve all been there. Have her call you a taxi, or pick a direction and start walking till you find a main road.
Now you have your own story of, One Night in Bangkok!
