Bangla Road Nightlife

-
.

Without a doubt, the best place for Phuket Nightlife in the infamous Bangla Road. Whilst not quite as raunchy as Pattaya’s Walking Street, Bangla Road comes alive once the sun sets. That’s when Patong’s liveliest party zone is closed to traffic and takes on a whole new persona. Famous for its nightlife, Bangla Road goes all out to entertain with girls, beers and music that gets louder as the night progresses. Jammed packed just about every night of the year, it’s a fun and lively place to walk around as the bars (and girls) compete for customers.

The bar girls in Bangla Road aim to please – dancing around poles, engaging in lively banter, or coaxing customers to play simple bar games like “Connect” or “Hammer the nail” to break the ice. The objective is to entice customers to buy them ladydrinks and hopefully, take them away for the evening. Almost all of the bars are outdoors so the music from each one is deafening! Beer Bars occupy most of Bangla Road‘s length, with several gogos and a few pubs, restaurants, discos and shops rounding out the attractions both on Bangla Road and down its side streets (Sois).

Running off to the side of Bangla Road are many side streets  (Soi) , each offering a unique experience.

  • Soi Eric – With more than 20 bars and pubs that create the most vibrant nightlife in Patong area, Soi Eric is the hottest spot in Phuket.
  • Soi Easy – Best known for the upstairs Aussie Bar, which naturally attracts a faithful crowd of Aussies.  Soi Easy is the soi closest to the beach on Bangla Road.
  • Soi Gonzo – Next to Soi Easy you’ll find Soi Gonzo, a cool little soi that often gets overlooked between the glitz of Easy and the ladboys of Soi Crocodile.  It’s the place to go to enjoy all the action of Bangla Road without having to deal with the crowds.
  • Soi Crocodile – Also known as ‘Soi Katoey’ is the most consistently busy of the bar sois and the place to checkout the  ladyboys shaking everything they’ve got. The Crocodile Bar, a massive go-go bar which is located at the end of the soi, is always popular even during low season.
  • Soi Vegas – Located at the top of Bangla Road, Soi Vegas houses Katoys’ R ‘ Us – featuring flamboyant dancing on the bar, along with Big Spender, King Kong and  Sala Muay Thai, which is the only bar that offers Thai boxing shows or Muay Thai.
