The best bars and clubs in Bangkok
First it was BEAM. Now there’s Violett. The Thonglor dance scene has officially been revived. Party lovers from various backgrounds have gotten together to create this new nightclub in the heart of Bangkok’s party district.
Club SX is like your rich, outspoken friend. He has a big heart. He’s a bit older. He dresses in swanky outfits. He speaks loud. Laughs even louder. But he’s kind and funny. The fact that he’s older means he knows more than you do—more music genres, more funny gags, more liquor options.
Thonglor’s latest luxury nightclub is ready to entertain you and your posse with its cutting-edge beats and mind-boggling visuals. Set in a revamped warehouse, Beam is a two-story venue that features different music genres on each level.
Having recently celebrated its fourth anniversary, this Sukhumvit Soi 11 venue entertains locals and visitors with pop tracks, flashy lights and live sets from some of the world’s top deejays.
The Bangkok outpost of a giant club chain takes over the two top floors of a fancy office building and features a restaurant, lounge, bar and a massive dance floor.
EDM (electronic dance music, for those of you who live under a rock) is what DND is known for. Live musical performances from both Thai and foreign bands, and local DJs give this venue a music-festival feel.
After wielding design magic on Maggie Choo’s and Iron Fairies, Australian designer Ashley Sutton is back with Sing Sing Theater. Decorated with metalwork, wood, lanterns and neon lights, the place combines inspirations from Shanghai in the ′30s with futuristic Blade Runner-esque elements.
Australian interior designer Ashley Sutton took the concept of the secret speakeasy bar to the next level when he created Maggie Choo’s. Inspired by Shanghai in the 1950s, the bar is a visual spectacle of stone sculptures, dungeon-like smoking rooms and heavy steel doors.
