Bangkok used to be famous, or should we say infamous, for its raucous and bawdry nightlife, which featured plenty of go go bars with raunchy shows and X rated entertainment complexes that partied all night. While the girlie bars are still around, Bangkok has emerged as one of the most elegant and enjoyable spots on the planet when the sun goes down. These days, you can choose from some of the most unique sky bars in the world, such as CRU, a champagne bar that is the city's highest drinking establishment, or the long running Moon Bar, which give superb panoramas of the dazzling skyline. For something far more intimate, check out the former Q Bar owner's tiny happening little nightspot Smalls. If it is clubbing you want, head either to Level's, in party crazy Sukhumvit Soi 11, or else to the ultra elegant Ku De Ta. For live music, you can't beat Saxophone or Adhere the 13th Blues Bar, both of which have been going strong for decades and are packed with fans enjoying live blues every night. For rock fans, the legendary Rock Pub still lets its hair down each evening. For something far more elegant, head to either the fashionable Vogue Lounge, or the swank mixology speakeasy Q & A.
