Nightlife in Bangkok has evolved over the years, with the emphasis now firmly on swanky rooftop bars, lively nightclubs and hip cocktail lounges. The Thai capital has so much more to offer than just the adult-themed fun of Patpong, Nana and Soi Cowboy. Any discussion of nightlife in Bangkok can’t ignore the party scene at Khao San Road, or the more laidback Soi Rambuttri next door, while Thonglor across town seems to have a trendy new bar opening up almost every week.

Clubbers in Bangkok are spoilt for choice, with big names on Sukhumvit, Silom and the gauntlet of superclubs at RCA all packed-out with tourists and locals most nights of the week. Below, you’ll find Bangkok nightlife guides to all the best areas of the city.
