    For being Soi 11's new hot and happening nightclub, Levels is on top.

    Q Bar

    For being Bangkok's longest standing dance clubs, the Q Bar is still one of the best.

    Local Expert Tip: "Best choice to get here is to BTS Skytrain to Nana and walk up Soi 11. It can get very crowded here on weekends."

    For being the number one party zone in the happening RCA district, Slim/Flix is the best.

    Local Expert Tip: "ID is scrutinized at the door no matter how old you look, so bring a passport. It can be slightly confusing as to how to get here. Best to take a taxi from the Phra Ram 9 MRT subway station."

    For pulsing music and an upscale audience, Demo is pretty stylish.

    Local Expert Tip: "To get here take a taxi from the Thong Lor Skytrain station. Look for Funky Villa, as Demo is slightly hidden, set back off the road behind it."

    For an excellent disco in a fancy hotel, you can't go wrong at Spassos.

    Local Expert Tip: "a dress code is in effect here, with no tank tops, shorts, rugby or soccer shirts, or sandals allowed, so get out your nice duds."

    CM2 has been on the Bangkok nightlife scene forever, and it still knows how to party.

    Local Expert Tip: "Wednesday night is Ladies Night, with free entrance and 2 standard drinks for all the gals."

    For remaining hip and up to date in the ever changing Thong Lor club scene, Escudo gets kudos.

    Local Expert Tip: "Dress code and ID checks at the door. Sandals, shorts, tank tops are the usual no no's. Located up near Thong Lor Soi 13, best to take a taxi as it is a bit too far to walk up from the Thong Lor Skytrain station."

    Lava Club

    For being the top party spot on Khao San Road, Lava gets the nod.

    Local Expert Tip: "the party gets going here after 11pm. Located in the basement of the Bayon Building, follow your ears rather than eyes to get here."
