Bangkok plus night equals fun…guaranteed! It is a city that never sleeps due to the high energy and excitement that goes along with the entertainment. From low-key cocktail bars to crazy cabaret shows, there’s so much to experience nightlife-wise that I can write a book about it, but instead here are five complete different places that you’re guaranteed to be interested in at least one! Each venue is highly rated on Tripadvisor.
1) Q Bar
For the party like a rockstars, Q Bar is the place for that city feel nightclub experience. It is posh, chic, and trendy making it internationally famous to fashionistas and socialites from New York to Dubai to Tokyo. You can easily spot an A list celebrities in this joint – sightings of Matt Dillion, Owen Wilson, and Collin Farrell have been reported! Don’t think you have to be oh so swanky to get in either, backpackers integrate themselves nightly.

2) Check Inn 99
You can’t get a fun atmosphere better than Check Inn 99 with steak, cabaret, and dancing! This place has been around since the 60’s as a well-known Bangkok Cabaret Bar and Restaurant. Attracting an older crowd, Check Inn 99 has an extremely laid back vibe without any pretentiousness in site. The Music of the Heart band plays nightly while Sunday afternoon is their famous Jazz event. Oh and the food is excellent! It’s a steakhouse, but also offers European and Thai dishes.
3) Sky Bar
As a lover of heights, I love discovering cities from high above looking down. Sky Bar, located on the 63rd floor of The Dome at State Tower, is one of the world’s highest open air bars offering amazing views of Bangkok. There is something completely romantic and sexy about sipping a cocktail while admiring the night below hence why Sky Bar is named one of the coolest bars that Bangkok offers.
4) Siam Niramit
Much different than the rest, Siam Niramit is an award winning performance about Thailand’s history, legends, beliefs and local festivals. It may already sound touristy, but it’s well worth it! Siam Niramit, which plays nightly at 8pm, features over 100 performers, stunning set designs, amazing special effects and gorgeous costumes. It’s fun for all ages, and it even made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for such a gigantic stage!
5) Saxophone Pub
For jazz aficionados, the Saxophone Club is as jazzalicious as it can get! Since 1987, the Saxophone Pub has been providing visitors with live funk, blues, pop jazz, and more, every night of the week. Notice that it’s a pub so you can’t expect too much smooth jazz. This joint provides the jazz to get all up on their feet!
