Pick any one of them for a memorable party experience. Lounge on their comfortable sofas, listen to some jazz music, and party late into the night while soaking in a 360-degree view of the city. Just remember that most rooftop bars have a strict dress code of not allowing sports shorts, sandals, and sleeveless shirts.

If you are willing to stay away from the big-named ones, then there are a bunch of smaller rooftop bars like Wanderlust Rooftop, Roof 409 & bistro, and Jham – Jun Pranakom which have a relaxed dress code.

The most popular of the pool parties is the one that happens on the 10th floor of the Sofitel on the last Saturday of every month. With an open-air pool and a deck overlooking the lush green Lumpini Park, it has a view that sets the tone for the evening.  The night comes alive with a young crowd grooving to the tunes on a dance floor by the pool. Pool parties also happen at the Ocean pool lounge, Ambar, and Doubletree.

Grab a drink while watching showgirls put on an exotic performance at Bangkok’s infamous Go Go bars

Bangkok’s go-go bars have gained worldwide popularity for the chilled-out adult entertainment they provide. Most go-go bars have a typical style, where customers sit around a central stage and drink while watching dancers put on an exotic show on the stage. You are allowed to interact with any of them and better yet, buy them a drink.  So grab some drinks and interact with the lively girls.

Most of the popular go-go bars are located around Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza, and Patpong – the famous red-light districts of Bangkok. Some of the friendly bars are Bada Bing A Go-Go, Baccara, Tilac Bar, Angelwitch, and Billboard A Go-Go.

    Wow, the photos look amazing! So fancy, expensive and a nice mix of Western and Eastern cultures. I have a golf friend having traveled to Bangkok this summer. I wonder if he visited any of these places. I have never been in Bangkok, Thailand before, but I would love to have a visit. Hope to throw a party in one of these places. Thanks for sharing!
