10 Best Nightclubs in Bangkok

Bangkok's Best Dance Clubs

Bangkok's nightlife is legendary and for good reason. The city is buzzing seven nights a week, with both world mega-clubs and underground haunts standing side by side, attracting revelers from every corner of the planet. You can find every niche musical movement in Bangkok – from the new wave of EDM flooding the city, to classic hip hop beats and even drum ’n’ bass. It’s this sheer choice, along with fun-loving crowds and the classic easygoing Thai charm that makes Bangkok the premier clubbing destination in Asia, and one of the most boisterous party cities in the world.

We've selected these 10 best clubs in Bangkok to give you an idea of what the city's diverse nighlife scene is all about. You can also click through on each club to see it up in detail, including photo galleries and all the other information you need; we've personally visited them all - so no secondhand information here!

Location: RCA

Music: EDM
Crowd: Dressed up locals and foreign EDM-heads

Electronic Dance Music (EDM) has slowly been pushing other dance music out of the frame when it comes to partying in Bangkok, and RCA’s popular Onyx is the shining example. This 2,000 capacity club has become a Mecca for Bangkok’s bass-heads, with CO2 cannons, confetti drops and awesome laser shows. Onyx is the biggest single party space in Bangkok, with a huge dancefloor and plenty of standing tables and stools. Some European-inspired touches are evident, such as the impressively-high ceiling and a cool LED screen behind the main DJ booth. Entrance is normally 400-500 baht for foreigners, which includes a few drinks vouchers. Plus, it's the only club in Bangkok to rank in DJ Mag's acclaimed Best Clubs in the World.  Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 21:00-late

It’s one of the largest clubs in the city, with a grand entrance into a big hanger style room with 14-meter-high ceilings, a retractable halo lighting system and an ‘L Acoustic’ sound system that fills the room with pure-quality sound and heavy bass. Add to this outstanding dance shows, seductive podium dancers and a central stage for those who want to let loose on the dance floor.

Sing Sing Theater

Location: Sukhumvit

Music: Vocal House on weekends/hip-hop on Sundays and Wednesdays
Crowd: Sophisticated mix of trend-setters and expats

Sing Sing Theater is a fantastical bar-cum-club with the most creative interior design concept in Bangkok. Paying homage to far Eastern aesthetics, you can expect intricate wrought iron patterns, hundreds of lanterns hanging from the ceiling and plenty of dragon imagery to go with the ‘Muses’ (elegant girls dressed in Chinese Qipao). The music at Sing Sing Theater covers a lot of ground, and is far more ambitious than most clubs in the capital. A definite highlight of Sing Sing is the elaborate entertainment providing a treat for the eyes. It's truly unique in Bangkok and promises fun and sophistication in just the right amounts.  Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 20:00-02:00
  • Location: Sukhumvit Soi 45

Levels Club & Lounge

Location: Sukhumvit

Music: R&B / EDM 
Crowd: A mixed bag of tourists and Thais

A relative newcomer to the party scene in Bangkok, but – like all the cool kids – it arrived fashionably late and now everyone wants to get in for a look. With a rooftop lounge and two club rooms, Levels covers a lot of musical ground: funky beats on the terrace, R&B hits in the plush main room, and house and techno in the cavernous box in the rear. Thanks to free entry and a proactive PR team, Levels attracts a decent gathering of clubbers most nights of the week, with special events on Wednesday and Friday, usually based around a theme including lots of bikini clad-models. This club is definitely catering for western tastes, with minimal seating and a vibe conducive for mixing and mingling while checking out the different areas. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 21:00 – 03:00
  • Location: Sukhumvit Soi 11
  • Price Range: Free entry

Location: Sukhumvit

Music: Tech House uptairs/Hip-Hop downstairs
Crowd: A fairly even split of young Thais and foreigners

With the best soundsystem in Bangkok - including speakers pumping from under your feet - Beam is a place for fans of minimal house and techno. The VOID Acoustics sound system is incredibly good, as is the LED laser and light show, which cuts through the darkness. The music policy is strictly adhering to the ‘cooler’ elements of the dance music scene so don’t expect to hear chart hits or vocal EDM tracks. Downstairs is the hip-hop room, which always seems to have a fun and friendly vibe.  Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 - Late
  • Location: 72 Courtyard Mall, Thonglor (Sukhumvit Soi 55)

Route 66

Location: RCA

Music: Hip Hop / Trance / Live Band
Crowd: Young, Thai and dressed to impress

If young, Thai and sexy is your thing then you should definitely get down to RCA and check out Route 66. RCA (Royal City Avenue) is a designated party street with bars and clubs lining the street on both sides – and this is the pick of the lot. There are three rooms built side by side playing live music, hip hop and trance, although it’s the hip hop main area that gets all the attention. Route 66 is definitely Thai-style clubbing, which means most people turn up, purchase a bottle of whisky and find their base for the night. All the best areas are reserved for this and anyone sipping on beers will find the majority of their night is spent lurking around trying to find a place to stand. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 – 02:00
  • Location: RCA
  • Price Range: Free for Thai Citizens, foreigners 400 baht

Location: Sukhumvit (Asok)
Glow Club

Music: Deep house/techno/drum & bass
Crowd: Young expats and a few in-the-know Thais and tourists

Despite its diminutive size (capacity is only a few hundred people) Glow has quickly risen as one of the go-to places for underground dance music in Bangkok. In fact, ever since the closure of underground institutes like Club Culture and Café de Moc, Glow has more or less take the reigns as the only club of its type in the city. There’s two levels to the venue, but all the action happens downstairs on the compact dance floor. It’s so tight, the hardcore ravers at the front practically have to dance over the DJ’s CDJs in the booth, which has previously welcomed big names such as Goldie & Fabio, Felix Moreno and Dubway. Entrance depends on the night, but expect your 200-500 baht fee to get you some free drinks thrown in too.   Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 22:00-03:00
  • BTS: Asok
  • Address: Sukhumvit 23

Location: Thong Lor

Music: EDM / Hard House / Techno
Crowd: Moneyed Thais, ranging from students to young professionals, going wild with daddy’s credit card

Situated right in the middle of Bangkok’s high society row on Thong Lor Street, Demo (and its sister Funky Villa) packs crowds in from Wednesday to Sunday with a chic, abandoned-factory setting, pumping house and techno and free entry. The crowd of affluent Thais and a smattering of in-the-know foreigners are more discernable with their musical tastes and choice of drinks here, with cutting edge tunes and cocktail menu several pages long. The setting itself is worth checking out – graffiti all over the bare brick walls, shutters in place of doors, and a large outdoor area linking the club with the more mainstream Funky Villa next door.

I.D. is an absolute must at Demo – even if you’re old enough to remember the 70s disco scene, the door staff are still going to ask you. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 – 02:00
  • Location: Thong Lor Soi 10
  • Price Range: Weekdays free entry; Weekends 500 baht (redeemed in drinks vouchers)

Music: house/hip hop/party pop (depending on the night)
Crowd: Expats, tourists and internationalised Thais

Ce La Vi (Formerly Ku De Ta) was one of the most high profile openings Bangkok has seen in years, creating a buzz right across the city, and with a new name and a fresh start they are still top of the tree for a fun and fancy night out in Bangkok. The club lounge section of Ce La Vi is a sophisticated space with rooftop views from the 39th floor of the massive Sathorn One Building. Music changes according to the night but expect hip hop anthems on Wednesdays (ladies night), deep house on Thursdays, and a mixture of commercial party pop, R'n'B and EDM hits on Fridays, with a more bass heavy tracklist on Saturdays. Dress to impress for this one. Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 20:00 – 02:00
  • Location: 39th and 40th floors, Sathorn Square Complex, 98 North Sathorn Road
  • BTS: Chong Nonsi exit 4

Live RCA

Location: RCA

Crowd: All depends on the night!
Music: House and EDM - depends on event
