Banana Disco is the longest running and one of the most popular discos in Patong Beach. Opened in 1993 and located right on Patong’s beachfront, it has an outdoor bar area directly in front of the air-conditioned disco and this area usually has a live band until around 23:00, making it the ideal venue to sip a cocktail before getting up close and personal inside.
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.
A cover charge (200 baht which includes the first drink) ensures that many of Patong's working ladies remain at arm’s length – at least for most of the week. The music played there is mainly Hip-Hop, Dance/Electronic, Pop, Top 40 with some old favourites depending on the crowd. Patong's international crowd ensures you'll never have the same experience twice.
Upstairs is a typical dance floor, in bright pastel colours that accentuate the elegance of the venue. Downstairs is a full-service bar serving classic drinks with a wide choice of house cocktails which are as potent as they are delicious.
Banana Disco is located a mere 50m from Bangla Road and is right next to Patong Beach Hotel and the recently opened and ultra-modern Banana Walk shopping mall. The discotheque itself is a non-smoking area; smoking is only allowed at the outdoor bar. At Banana Bar the live band mostly plays international classics such as Santana’s Black Magic Woman and other evergreens.
Diligent staff and security members ensure that no trouble arises and that you can dance the night away to the resident DJ’s beats and have great fun at Banana Disco.
