Soi Hollywood (previously known as Soi Easy) is the first of the sois to split off Bangla Road in Patong if you enter the famous nightlife hub from the beach end. Starting about 80m from that end of the street and on your left (the northern side), roughly opposite Kangaroo Bar, it is home to one of Phuket’s most popular nightclubs, a live music bar and perhaps the raciest selection of beer bars in the area.
The street is located directly underneath Hollywood Phuket nightclub. Getting particularly lively after midnight and into the early morning, the club has quite a wild reputation, but you will find great local and international talents playing EDM and house tunes, making it one of the most popular joints on Bangla Road.
The street was originally known as a beer bar soi similar to Soi Freedom or Soi Tiger, but was stripped out some time in 2015 and replaced with about 15 food stalls, all along the left-hand side of the soi. This only lasted for about a year and Soi Hollywood has now reverted to beer bars.
The new layout is much more spacious and features a selection of pool tables along the left wall. There is currently only one named venue - Pum Pui (meaning "fat" in Thai). Continuing the sliding scale of prices along Bangla Road, from the most expensive being up at the Rat-U-Thit Road end (such as Soi Tiger) to the cheapest by the beach, local beers are available here for as little as 79 baht.
Right at the end of Soi Hollywood is the entrance to The Secret Ago-go. It is one of the more upscale venues of its kind, with a 500 baht entrance fee and expensive drinks prices, though it also boasts the most professional shows. There's also the entrance to a public toilet nearby.
The street is not really what you would ordinarily think of as a street. It is entirely covered since it is located directly underneath Hollywood Discotheque (hence the name), making it look more like an underground car park than a road. However, this does make it a good place to shelter from any sudden rainfall in the off-season.
An institution of Bangla Road has returned! Hollywood was, for many years, the bright star at the beach end of the party street, but briefly changed names to VIP Rooms Patong Beach. It is now back as Hollywood, and back as the home of great parties with excellent EDM and house beats in the long and stylish venue.
