Top 12 Nightlife in Phuket
Most Popular Nightlife in Phuket
Patong is the undisputed nightlife centre of Phuket. From nine o’clock onwards nightly the town is buzzing and doesn’t stop until the wee hours (and longer depending where you look).
Bangla Road in Patong is the epicentre of the action and where you will find the biggest clubs, the craziest ‘bar beers’ and the fruitiest shows. However other areas such as Rat-U-Thit Road and Beach Road have lively night venues with good bands.
1Soi Bangla Central Patong0
Stroll along Bangla Road at round midnight and you’ll wonder if you’re an extra in a phantasmagorical movie or not. Anything goes along Bangla and that includes boys that love girls who love girls who are boys, ping pong shows without a table-tennis paddle, clubs with pounding beats. Taken with a sense of humour it’s a barrel of laughs. Read More...2Night Clubs Soi Bangla and Beach Road0
The biggest clubbing names in Patong are Famous, Seduction, The Factory and Beach Road’s Banana. Big-name DJs occasionally drop by such as David Morales, DJ Bert Bevans, Judge Jools and Thailand’s very own Nakadia to rock these places but at the end of the day (literally) many clubs in Patong are glorified pickup joints. Read More...3Beach Clubs Around the Island0
Beach clubs are the latest hot trend in Phuket; and a simple yet complex recipe with the right mix of ingredients is required to guarantee success. Phuket’s beach club formula includes: setting up a stylish modern restaurant/bar made from natural elements as near to the sea and sand as possible, organising the occasional party with internationally recognised DJs/artists, mixing it up with some capable barmen who know how to fix cocktails, adding a talented chef who can create delicious tapas and classy snacks to accompany the drinks... the final touch... a beautiful sunset to ensure everyone has the perfect evening at the beach club.

High on Kata Hill overlooking Kata Noi Beach you’ll find three very similar bars called After Beach, Small Viewpoint and Baan Chom. They all play Bob Marley music and they all have fantastic sunset views. At the southern end of Kata Beach stands the Ska Bar - a lovely place to spend a starry night sipping on a cool one and listening to the sound of breaking waves and reggae music.

If you’re into sequins, heavy makeup and boys who look more like girls than girls do, Simon Cabaret is the place for you. A Phuket institution, it started out in a single shop-house and has grown exponentially over the years into its presentday form as a transvestite/transgender extravaganza.

Patong’s A Go-Go bars are the main reason some people head there in the first place – they feature sexy, scantily-clad young girls swaying to the music. A Go-Go bars aren't the raunchy circuses they used to be but they still provide plenty to look at. According to Thai law, total nudity is banned but in some establishments these rules are often bent, if not outright ignored.
Girls usually ‘pole dance’ on a central stage, wearing light skirts and bras. Customers can sit around the stage bar, but usually if it’s their first time in a girlie place they prefer to sit on the more dimly-lit sofas around the room to avoid looking embarrassed. Centrally located A Go-Go bars tend to get the young, cute, and slim girls, but the more you head away from the centre of Bangla, the older the ladies seem to be. Read More...8Live Music Patong Beach0
Again, Patong is the centre of live music on the island with Rock City hosting heavy metal tribute bands, Tai Pan, cover bands and Margarita’s mixing sports coverage with live music. In Phuket Town the places to head to are Rockin’Angels and Timber Hut – both along Yaowarat Road. You’re not going to come across innovative live music in Phuket but there are some hot acts out there. Read More...9Gay Phuket Patong Beach0
The streets leading to Royal Paradise Phuket are almost all taken over by gay bars, restaurants, and massage parlours. Some of the leading gay bars are The Flying Handbag, Boat Bar, Kar and Dempsey’s has an A-Go-Go show. Connect Guesthouse is a good place to check out if you’re seeking information on the gay scene in Phuket. Read More...10Thai Boxing Patong Beach0
Often exhilarating and always riveting, Muay Thai - or Thai Boxing - is the most intensive body contact sport in the world.
