Sukhumvit stretches on forever, actually running all the way out along Bangkok's eastern seaboard, but the real action takes place from lower to mid Sukhumvit, basically between soi's 1-55, encompassing the Nana, Asok, and Thong Lor districts (for Ekkamai and Thong Lor nightlife, see our separate pages on this, as this guide covers Sukhumvit proper). While the area is noted for its infamous Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy red light bars, those not looking for adult pleasures can have an excellent night out at all the other drinking and dancing venues. Soi 11 has become famed for its bar life, ranging from legendary Cheap Charlie's to the more upscale Above Eleven, and current top dance nightclub Levels, as well as Bangkok's best live music bar, the sleek Apoteka. The range here is endless. You can have a 360 degree panorama at the chilled out sky high Octave Bar, get up above the crowds at the centrally located sky lounge Axis & Spin, enjoy a bustling happy hour at Hemingway's, or you can hang out in frozen splendor at the Titanium Club and Ice Bar, which also rocks the night away. One thing is for sure, you will have all your happy hours taken care of along Sukhumvit with an endless array of possibilities.
