Patong Beach Nightlife
Where to Go at Night in Patong
Patong's pulsating nightlife never fails to attract curious visitors every evening. Like a magnet, it's hard to resist a wander down Soi Bangla - the heart of the bar scene where neon lights and deafening music compete for your attention. Over a hundred bars - ranging from beer bars, Go-Go bars, nightclubs and pubs - are condensed into the small, action-packed area fondly known as "Bangla", where the only priority is to have a good time.
Besides Bangla Road, Patong Beach houses other interesting night spots along its two main strips – Rat-U-Thit Road and Thaweewong Road (the beach road) – the former hosting Paradise Complex, the centre of gay nightlife scene in Phuket, as well as international brand venues such as Hard Rock Café and Hooters, while the latter features some cool live music pubs and restaurants as well as the first-ever dance club opened in 1993 in Patong: Banana Disco.Read More

Despite the crowds (it gets mega busy around midnight) Banana rarely has any trouble, mainly due to the efficient bar staff and strict ID policy that keeps the very young out; there’s even a metal detector at the entrance. Read More...

Bangla Road really comes to life once the sun sets. The road is closed to vehicle traffic and becomes a 400 metre festival of neon lights, loud music and cheap beer. Jammed most nights of the year, it is quite a friendly and lively place to walk around as bars and clubs compete with each other for customers. If you’re looking for a fun night out in Phuket, Bangla Road should be your first (and, often, only) stop.
Almost all of the bars are outdoors or open-fronted, so the music from each one blends into a mess of mixed beats. Beer bars occupy most of the street's length, with several Read More...

The next street closer to the beach from Soi Seadragon, it is found roughly opposite Soi Lao and is lined with beer bars on either side, creating a gauntlet of bright neon lights, loud music and hostesses keen to drag you onto a bar stool – sometimes physically.

It's quite an extreme venue, with the drinks prices are similarly high and known to vary from night to night. If you question the price with Read More...
