  • STREET BEAT – Late last night I spontaneously decided to check out the after dark scene in Bangkok. I went to Climax Club on Sukhumvit Soi 11 and it was rocking!† This is where Thai girls like to party after dark and there is no cash ‘n’ carry for a Thai takeaway. Don’t be shy give it a try!
  • STREET BEAT – Formerly known as Spice Club, the renamed Climax Club is located in Ambassador Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 11. It is now open late and gets going from 2am onwards. The Thai DJs stereotypically play techno and hip hop music. Well, that is if you can call that music!
  • STREET BEAT – I also did a street beat patrol of the ‘pavement pubs’ that are located from Sukhumvit Soi 5 right up towards Asoke. These unlicensed mobile bars are turning over a fair trade. From my intensive research I discovered that a beer will cost you 80 baht at all the pavement pubs. Bloody hell, I’m feeling rough today!
  • DAVES RAVES – I like to shop and eat at Foodland, but Sukhumvit Soi 5 transcends into ‘Little Africa’ after dark. It makes Caucations feel like you are Tarzan!
  • PAVEMENT PUBS – The Bangkok Post published an article entitled ‘Bangkok’s sleazy street of shame’ – QUICK CLICK
