It’s a wild party city where crazy things go down.
Everyone knows Bangkok is a wild party city where crazy things go down every night. There’s never a lack of parties in this bustling city that never sleeps, regardless of what time or day it is. Thais in Bangkok know how to party, as they’re always ready to drink the night away while dressed to the nines in hot party clothes.
Although there are tons of great, happening venues throughout the city, here’s a narrowed-down list of our favorite places to party in the Thai capital.
Demo is my personal favorite as it’s got a cool, urban, edge. The interior is set with red bricks and graffiti giving it the look of a laidback bar, though it gets crazy busy every weekend. The club is small which can be good if you like intimacy and sharing bottles with new friends. But it does get super packed real quick which makes it hard to dance or move. Demo is popular with trendy cool kids who show up dressed in their freshest streetwear or party clothes. For a poppin’ night out in a cool venue, Demo is a guaranteed good time almost any night of the week.

Expats and travelers tend to love Route 66, though this shouldn’t deter you from wanting to party there. Route 66 is a huge venue with multiple dance floors and outdoor seating. Local Thais love dressing up and partying here as much tourists and you’ll see no shortage of hot, beautiful people going wild. For a truly rowdy night, check out Route 66 and experience one of Bangkok’s most recognized nightclubs.
Sing Sing Theater is an uber-hip, concept venue that pays homage to East Asian aesthetics that brings the debauchery and glam of a Chinese brothel. As the name suggests, Sing Sing is a theater where cool performances and artistic theme parties take center stage. The bar girls dress in elegant, Asian-influenced cabaret costumes and are called muses. Sing Sing is a beautiful venue that’s pleasing to all the senses, a unique club in Bangkok that can’t be missed!

Ce La Vi is a swanky club located on the rooftop of the Sathorn One Building. The venue is beautiful, glitzy and uber-sexy. It’s an expansive space with an amazing view of the cityscape which you can admire from an outdoor terrace. There’s a super fun ladies night on Wednesdays when people can come in on a whim and get down to hip-hop and R&B. Whether you’re out to get a table and pop some bottles or dance your ass off all night, Ce La Vi won’t disappoint as a glamorous club destination.
Glow seems to be THE place to go to in Bangkok for the latest and greatest in underground music, particularly in electronic, techno and drum and bass. It’s small and packed, just as an edgy, countercultural music club should be and it gets intimate real fast on the dance floor. If you’re looking eschew the primped up, higher end clubs and just want to get down to good music, you know Glow is the place to go.
