When people hear Thong Lor nightlife, they think party, party, and big bills. While one doesn't have to break the bank here, Thong Lor is some of Bangkok's more exclusive real estate, and the vibe here in most bars and clubs is upscale, urban, and hip. Famed designer/creator Ashley Sutton has three top nightlife venues here, the bizarre Iron Fairies, the Wild West fish and chips saloon Fat Gutz, and the eco electronic Clouds. If these theme cocktail bars are appealing, you may want to check out the guru of the Bangkok drink, as well as one of the world's great cocktail connoisseur's, Joseph Boroski, at his hidden hole in the wall J Boroski Mixology. For something a bit more collegiate, with some great drinks to boot, try the unpretentious Shades of Retro or the happening music, dance, and drink venue, Badmotel. Thong Lor also appeals to the all night party crowd, and on Soi 10, there are plenty of clubs where one can dance to the electronic beat along with live Thai bands until the wee hours. Funky Villa, along with Myst, are the pick of the litter. Finally, don't forget to take it all in from way above with a drink at the sky high Octave before heading home.
