Bangkok Bar Closing Times

Soi Cowboy Bangkok

The powers that be have announced that later bar closing hours are currently being permitted again. I mentioned this in Night Fever but in this post I want to focus more upon Bangkok’s bar closing times. Initially the reinstated later bar closing times for Bangkok might not be noticed by some people, but theyhave comeinto effect. Soi Nana isnow open until at least 2:00 AMon a nightly basis. I wasinformed by Bangkok Bad Boythat it is not plain sailing for Soi Cowboy. However, Soi Cowboy only closed at 1:00 AM on one particular night. Soi Cowboy continues to close between 2:00 AM and 2:30 AM on a nightly basis.

Last night (Thursday, June 15) it was raining and at least one bar in Nana Plazastayed open until 2:45 AM. Tea money is starting to exchange hands once again and you will be able to drink and party later into the early hours. OK guys, this might not seem like a big deal to some people, but it is absolutely essential for Bangkok’s nightlife venues. Stick Mark IIinforms us that Patpongwill bepermitted to stay open3:00 AM, but at the moment I have no confirmation of this. I just received confirmation that Patpong is indeed open until 3:00 AM. This is a VERY positivestride forwardfor Bangkok’s nightlife. Party on people!

Some bars that are tucked away from the prominent nightlife areas do stay open very late. Some of these “night cap” bars can be found deeper inside Soi Nana. One such place is Swan Pool Bar and Restaurant, which is situated right on the corner of Soi 6. You can always usually get a night capafter 2:00 AMin Swan Bar, andalso in a few other bars (just inside) Soi 6 like Jersey Pub. Of course,this depends on whether the bar owner wants to stay open late. My advice in this kind of situation is if you know the bar owner or manager well, get hismobile phone number. This way you can call beforehand to check if they are still open. It makes more sense thangoing all the way to a place only to find out that they are closed.

Why do I bother to go into so much detail about the bar closing times?I think it is important when you are planning a night out. You need to knowwhennightspots are going to close because it varies from area to area in Thailand. The party animals need to know where they cankeep partying until the early hours, and other guysjust want a simple night cap. Also, if you are not aware of the closing times you could well go home alone if you leave it too late. In a country like Thailand things canchange overnight and that is why I think it is important not to take your eye off the ball.
