Fresh bars in Bangkok
First, find your way to RCA, a strip that’s bursting with venues. Look out for Route 66, a buzzing, three-room club. With a drinks menu that’s heavily wine and vodka, nights here are sound tracked by either a live band, R&B or trance, depending on the room. It’s simple, but effective party formula draws crowds seven nights a week. Slim/Flix, also on RCA, combines two clubs for a similar experience, although Flix keeps the party going from 2 am when Slim shuts down.
In the chic Thong-Lo area, Funky Villa offers a touch of exclusiveness with a luxe location, pricey drink range and Thai music soundtrack. The nearby and similarly stylish venue Demo blends house and trance with hip-hop and R&B.
For after-hours house and hip-hop away from the tourist traps, try Wip. Located inside the Liberty Plaza building, the party here starts up at 2 am. But if your dream night includes a Bangkok bar, plus a night market and giant Ferris wheel, then make your way over to the Suan Lum Night Bazaar.
Famous for uninhibited nightlife, Bangkok is one of the world’s true 24-7 party towns. These cleaner-cut venues pack more rambunctious partying than most cities could conjure.
