The best nightclubs in Bangkok stay buzzing 7 nights a week, with both world-class mega-clubs and underground haunts standing side by side, attracting revellers 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 what we believe are the best nightclubs in Bangkok to give you an idea of what the city's diverse nightlife scene is all about.



    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 comes equipped with CO2 cannons, confetti drops, and awesome laser shows.

    Onyx is one of the biggest single party spaces 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 was the first club in Bangkok to rank in DJ Mag's acclaimed Best Clubs in the World.

    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 fantastic nightlife venue with a very 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 is its elaborate entertainment providing a treat for the eyes. It's truly unique in Bangkok and promises fun and sophistication in just the right amounts.

    Location: Sukhumvit

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

    Levels Bangkok consists of a rooftop lounge and 2 club rooms, so it 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 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 caters for western tastes, with minimal seating and a vibe conducive for mixing and mingling while checking out the different areas.

    Crowd: A fairly even split of young Thais and foreigners

    With the best sound 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.

    Crowd: Expats, tourists and internationalised Thais

    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 3 rooms 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. Entry is 400 baht for foreigners, which includes free drinks tickets.
