Bangkok is definitely a top place for partying, restaurants and discos. A decade ago maybe this wasn't the case but it has changed in the recent years with a lot of expats coming to live in Bangkok, it has developed into a city with an amazing vibe of fancy restaurants. In this topic however we will cover about Bars, Discos and Restaurants in Bangkok:  
  • Bangkok Nightlife (Bars and Discos)

Most of the bars in Bangkok are in the city center where expats and Thais hang out. The most famous clubs are in Sukhumvit Road ( Downtown Bangkok). Some most famous ones are in Sukhumvit soi 11/street 11 and we have listed them down here for you.  
Q Bar

q-bar-bangkok-soi11Situated in Soi 11/street 11 of Sukhumvit Road. It's a place for rich Thais or expats. It's at the end of street 11 of downtown Bangkok. The entrance is quite fancy and small but as you get in it's a freaking huge bar. Although expensive from others it has quality DJ with bumping music all throughout the night.


Levels is right opposite Q Bar and it's on the levels-soi11-disco-bangkoktop of Hotel Aloft. Not a very big place but they have good Techno music and a small place to dance as well. You can also sit on big couches with your friends on one corner of the disco. It's usually crowded with Rich Thais and Expats.  
Cheap Charlies
It's next to BTS Nana in Sukhumvit soi 11. A small outdoor bar attracting mostly expats. The bar is decorated with wonderful running train all around the bar and you're also encouraged to leave behind anything in the bar adding to it's curiosity and the dynamic culture of the bar.  
Aussie Bar
Not too far from Cheap Charlies. Aussie bar is not only for OZ's but for everyone who loves sports and music. usually crowded with Expats interested in AFL, Rugby and Cricket.  


A huge nightclub constructed in the car park basement of Ambassador Hotel. You can grab a taxi at night to Climax and it's "FREE" because the club pays the taxi drivers commission. Entrance Fee of 350 baht with one drink free. Great music, young crowd, old guys looking for Thai Girls - Everything is in this club.
Sky Bar
sky-bar-bangkokSky Bar is one of the most famous places to hang out within the local and expat community. Wherever you go in the bar you get to see a beautiful view of the "sin city". A great place for people who like to take photos, people love taking pictures while standing at the edge of the bar.
Gullivers Tavern
Nice chill out place in Sukhumvit Soi 5. One of the best sports bar in Bangkok with 9 pool tables in total. You get a chance to meet locals mostly Thai girls and expats who love playing pool or rather watch football. A beer costs around 130 baht which is a reasonable price for this place.

Seven Spoon Bar and Restaurantseven-spoon-restaurant-bangkok
At the edge of China town in Bangkok. It's better to visit this restaurant if you're around China Town or rather use public transport or walk on foot in order to avoid the hustle and bustle of the streets.
