Patong nightlife

The heart of Phuket nightlife is Patong beach, with Bangla Road being the main strip. There are dozens of arcades of tiny bars packed right next to one another, as well as several large western style nightclubs. The discos charge up to 400 baht for admission but this includes two drinks. Soi Seadragon is home to the majority of the go-go bars, while Soi Eric, Soi Tiger and Soi Crocodile are among the most popular strips. Safari Bar on the outskirts of Patong is the main after-hours venue. A rock-climbing wall, food stands, and indoor and outdoor dancing areas are some of the attractions there.

Kata and Karon nightlife

The Kata/Karon area is a smaller, quieter, version of Patong and caters more to Scandinavian visitors. There are a few bars lanes located there, but no large discos. Rawai, on the southern tip of the island, is a sleepy beach town during the day, but has plenty going on after dark. Rawai beach is lined with dozens of small and medium sized bars and many of them tend to bend the rules regarding closing times.


Phuket nightlife also offers a number of more family oriented activities. Central Festival Walk and Jung Ceylon feature English language cinemas showing major western films. There are two mini-golf courses on the island, three bowling alleys, a go-karting track and a shooting range. The Green Man British Pub near Kata and Rawai hosts a Thursday night pub quiz and there are live jazz jams every Wednesday night at Music Matter - a little jazz joint found in Phuket Town .


Phuket hangout and thailand style bars

Phuket Town nightlife

The nightlife in Phuket Town is predominantly made up of Thai style nightclubs scattered all over the maze of one-way streets that make up old town Phuket. These joints are lively affairs, packed with a crowd of Thais and resident foreigners. They usually feature live bands playing a mix of western covers and traditional and contemporary Thai music. If you’re partying Thai style, pick up a bottle of whiskey at a bottle shop and bring it with you. Corkage fees are almost never charged, although it is expected that you will buy ice and mixers from the pubs. Grab a table and start clinking glasses with everyone within arm’s reach. Most Thai discos have no common dance floor, preferring to pack everyone around ‘standing tables’.


Thai style karaoke


Is highly popular in Thailand and there is a wide range of establishments where you can live out your pop-star fantasies. These range from hole-in-the-wall places with Thai music and friendly hostesses to large restaurants that rent out private booths by the hour.


Some hotels offer VIP Karaoke in a private hotel room complete with an attendant to fill your drinks. Many of these karaoke places provide a selection of beautiful hostesses who charge by the hour to sit with you, though not all of them will willingly leave with you.


Phuket nightlife such as nightclubs pubs and bars

Girlie bars

For those hoping to find some company for the evening there is no shortage of places with friendly girls or gay boys. This aspect of Thailand is very much acceptable and is carried out in a relaxed and open way that isn’t entirely sleazy and is recognised by some as one of the country’s attractions! Many of the bars in specifically designated areas operate for this very purpose, though the atmosphere is by no means intimidating and you’re welcome to sit and enjoy a drink and watch the TV or people in these bars without being hassled. On a slow night some of the girls will happily sit and chat with you (and ask for drinks) even if you have no intention of taking them home. They are only trying to make a living and can be genuine and fun company.
