RCA in Bangkok

Where to Party in RCA and Ratchada

Royal City Avenue – more commonly known as RCA – is the epicentre of Bangkok's clubbing scene and an officially designated nightlife zone so you can be assured of a party 7 nights a week. Clubbing institutions like Route 66 and Onyx are packed every night and, at weekends, they're rammed to capacity. There are so many options for visitors to RCA, wiith international DJs, as well as live concerts and soundtracks by popular local artists all in one night. RCA is separated into 4 blocks: Block A is closest to Rama 9 Road, and, at the opposite end, Block D leads onto Petchaburi Road, both of which have MRT Underground stations.

RCA is too far from public transport to walk so it requires a taxi or motorcycle journey from the MRT Underground, but don't worry if you've never been there before, simply follow our guide to the best clubs and bars on RCA. Even in midweek, RCA gets busy. However, on weekends it's overrun with impeccably dressed young revellers, most of them Thai and in their late teens or early 20s. The vibe is young, the mood carefree, and with lots of security, you can feel safe as you party the night away.

Taksura is a popular beer bar frequented by a mostly student crowd looking to down a few beers with friends. The exposed timber, vintage decor and acoustic cover band gives it a country pub kind of vibe – loud, and a lot of fun.

To accompany your tower of Singha, there's a tasty range of Thai dishes such as grilled pork and tom yum soup. Taksura is the biggest and busiest bar in Block D of RCA, close to the Petchaburi Road entrance. Beers here are much cheaper than elsewhere on RCA, making it a good place to fuel up before hitting the clubs further down the street or for those times when you want to chat without screaming into someone's ear.

  • Location: RCA Alley Block D, Khwaeng Bang Kapi, Huai Khwang, Bangkok 10310, Thailand

Tha Beatlounge

The best place to go for true hip-hop and rap music in Bangkok, look for the graffiti-style banner above Tha Beatlounge, a small, fashionable, but above all, friendly club on RCA. In the midweek, this place is fairly quiet, but on weekends hip-hop fanatics bring their own record collections and take turns demonstrating their turntable tricks, while rappers are encouraged to get on the mic. The crowd create a good-time vibe, helped by the reasonable drink prices. Anyone looking for the true hip-hop scene in Bangkok must check out The Beat Lounge.

Ratchadapisek Area

Massage parlours with names like Poseidon and Emmanuelle are found scattered all along Ratachadapisek Road and cater mostly to those locals partial to a full service'. The reliably gaudy and garish neon signs mean you can't miss them. Then there's Ratchada Cabaret (opposite Soi 6), which offers a popular ladyboy show less well known to holidaymakers.

While famous for both of the above, Ratchada is also one of Bangkok's best-kept after dark secrets - a place where loud neon-lit drinking spots cater to whisky sipping locals set on having a mostly wholesome time with their friends. Much of the action takes place within a tightly packed cluster of music pubs, bars and clubs found in Ratchada Soi 4. Highlights here include Zaleng, Baku, Pure Bar, and Ivre and the very popular and well-executed Snop. With no entry fees it's a great spot for bar-hopping, although it can get frenetically busy, especially on weekends.

Prices for drinks are very affordable and some places close later than most other places in Bangkok (though you may need to buy a bottle of whisky to partake). Worth bearing in mind is that foreigners may feel something of an oddity here, although the locals knocking back watered-down Scotch will make you feel nothing less than welcome.

Useful information

  • There are so many places to check out on RCA, its useful to note that all clubs issue guests with a stamp upon entry that allows them to enter and re-enter throughout the night.
  • In the old days, RCA was a notorious magnet for underage teens, so today bringing ID is a must. All of the clubs will ask you for it as a matter of course.
  • Route 66 and Onyx now have metal detectors and will search bags upon entry
