About Bangkok Nightlife
One could stay in Bangkok a year and still not run out of options for nightlife and bar hopping. It is not just that there are so many places, but that there are so many type of experiences to choose from. You can choose to drink with a view, such as above the city in the Moon Bar or overlooking the river and Wat Arun at the Amorosa, or perhaps you prefer to enjoy good blues, jazz, or Thai country with your drink, at stalwart spots like Adhere the 13th or Saxophone. For some, the ale itself is the most important, and venues like the Wine Connection serve up 8% microbrewed beer, while others may want to take in the age old art of champagne sabering, which happens daily at the St. Regis. And for those who want something completely different, the outrageously funny and talented antics at the transgender Mambo Cabaret will have the entire family in stitches. Whatever your choice, you will not be going home early.
