Nightlife Guide for Hua Hin City
Hua Hin Thailand is often seen as a place to relax and take a break from Bangkok, but that doesn’t mean it goes lights out after dark.
There is plenty to do at night in Hua Hin, from an open-air market to cabaret to bars and pubs of all kinds. Many are clustered on Soi Bintabat, the boulevard that serves as Hua Hin’s hub for action after dark.
For those interested in Hua Hin’s nightlife, here are seven great places to go.
Hua Hin Brewing Company
Part of Hilton Hua Hin, with prices to match, the Hua Hin Brewing Company may be the most popular night spot in town. The bar features both live music and DJs, and people come to dance. A variety of local beers are available, as is a menu of basic pub grub, with a few extras.
Hua Hin Night Market
Those up for a stroll can visit the Hua Hin Night Market and watch the buzz as vendors sell trinkets and baubles of every kind. It’s also not a bad place to eat. The food stalls sell cocktails and made-to-order seafood dishes. Best time to go is after 7 p.m.
Sasi Dinner Theater
This seven-act classic Thai performance, set in a tropical garden, unfolds along with the courses of your dinner. The performance includes classical Thai music along with the masked dance known as Khon, martial arts and more contemporary dance. Book tickets in advance if you want to go.
Blue Angel Cabaret
It’s not the shows Pattaya or Phuket, but the queens who perform give it their all. There are shows at 8 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.
Soi Bintabat and Poolsuk Road are a rallying point for those who want to get rowdy. Beer bars with pool tables, big screens and plenty of female company are plentiful. A bar called Mai Thai is always full. Johnnie Walkers draws an expat crowd with live music, western food and an all-day breakfast. A bar called U Turn offers outdoor seating. Whatever your speed, you are likely to find it here—as long as it is fast.
The Elephant Bar
If you want to slow down, The Elephant Bar has a 1920s motif, with marble table tops, black leather chairs and large fans on the ceilings. The house cocktail is called a Heritage Fizz. Live jazz plays six nights a week.
This bar, housed in a large, 19th-century pavilion, is a great place to have cocktails at Sunset. Part of the Hilton Hua Hin, it offers lounge-style seating, ocean views and a Tapas-style snack menu.
