One could write a book about the Khao San Road nightlife, legendary in Bangkok annals. It certainly never sleeps, that is for sure. But it has come a long way from its reputation for just being an endless string of mindless backpacker bars. These days, the scene ranges from old homes to nonstop action clubs and the clientele is just as much Thai as it is foreign. If you want to party and dance to loud music then try either the ska oriented Brick Bar or the electronic music venue, The Club, both on Khao San itself. Bangkok's first Mexican rock and roll bar Day of the Dead is also found here, and parties until the wee hours of the morning. For something a bit more chilled, you can head over to Adhere the 13th, a hole in the wall live blues bar that is one of Bangkok's most written about nightspots. Not too far away is the northern Thai themed Madame Musur, which has a very relaxed vibe combining chilled tunes with great food and drink. Even better, why not just sit out on the street in one of the funky and colorful VW Bus Cocktail bars that line Soi Rambutri, offering cheap drinks, great people watching, and a fabulous atmosphere. The ultra cool Bombay Blues Bar is located here as well. Your only dilemma in Khao San Road will be which nightlife to choose, and we hope this list makes it easier for you.
