There’s no place like Bangkok when it comes to nightlife. The City of Angels is packed with buzzing excitement seven nights a week. With so many hot spots to choose from – from EDM-dedicated clubs with vibrating kinetic dance floors to fantastical venues with theatrical dancers – Bangkok really is the place to be on a Friday night, or any night for that matter (you deserve it, my friend). As testament to the city’s abundance of party options, here are five of Bangkok’s hottest nightclubs that will definitely make your hangover worthwhile.



Having only just launched this year, Beam has become one of the most talked about clubs in Bangkok. Equipped with state of the art visual and sound equipments and top-notch decor, Beam is frequented by hot DJs from all over the world. It’s also home to Asia’s first “body kinetic” dance floor. For those who are not familiar, the dance floor vibrates according to the rhythm, therefore dancers would literally be able to feel the beat of the music below their feet as they move.

Sing Sing Theater


Designed by Ashley Sutton, the same brilliant mind behind Novotel’s exotic underground bar, Maggie Choo’s, Sing Sing Theater has made its mark as one of the most creative concept clubs in Bangkok. This ambitious venue, which closely resembles a Chinese brothel, pays homage to Eastern aesthetics, with its multitude of lanterns and dragon decor. To add to the excitement, guests are greeted with ‘Muses’ or girls dressed in traditional Chinese Qipao, as well as burlesque routines every now and then. Even the cocktails are fantasised, as anything from a mojito to their signature ‘Cabinet Escape’ is served from a vintage bird cage.

The club’s Main Room has opened its doors for the likes of Manse, Deorro, Freddie Le Grand, Showtek and The Chainsmokers.
