Patong Discos and Night Clubs
Patong is the notorious nightlife heart of Phuket, with Bangla Road at the middle of an ever-growing collection of discos and dance clubs. Perhaps they do not compare favourably to their counterparts in Ibiza or even in Bangkok, but the atmosphere is much more relaxed. The fashion police are noticeably absent and, so long as you’re enjoying yourself, no one really cares what you’re wearing or how you’re dancing.
The range of venues is, as you will see below, quite impressive, going from laid-back beach bars to VIP clubs. Even in the short length of Bangla Road, there are several new and eclectic concepts. Some of the old, well-established names have achieved global acclaim while newer clubs are always coming in with something different and special to try. You’ll certainly never be bored on any night of the week in Patong!
The oldest and one of the most popular discos in Patong still packs em' in after 10 years! An outdoor bar area directly in front of the air-conditioned disco, usually has a live band until around 11pm, and makes an ideal venue to survey the talent before before getting up-close-and-personal inside. Despite the crowds (especially around midnight) Banana rarely has any trouble, mainly due to good music, efficient bar staff and strict ID policy that keeps the very young out. Read More...
