Pattaya Nightlife | The Best Nightlife in Pattaya
When you think about Pattaya City, the first thing that pops into many people’s thoughts is the city’s nightlife scene. If you have never experienced the Pattaya nightlife scene before, you are missing out on one of the most unforgettable experiences in the world. People wax lyrical about Las Vegas, London and New York, but nothing can match the Pattaya nightlife on Walking Street in our humble opinion.
People book entire 3-week holidays in Pattaya on the nightlife scene alone, and that still doesn’t touch the sides. From the most modern and chic nightclub experiences in Walking Street Pattaya, thousands of beer bars, live music venues, cabaret theaters, Agogo bars and much more, the Pattaya nightlife scene has something for everyone whether you are a single guy on the prowl, a couple looking to solidify your love or are a group of friends wishing to paint the town red and cause absolute chaos.
If you are looking for the most popular Pattaya nightlife spots, Walking Street is the ultimate choice for holidaymakers who want a quick crash course on the city’s scene. Other areas along beach road such as Soi 7 and 8 are more than worth exploring if you are looking for something different.
Soi 6 has long epitomized the Pattaya nightlife scene for adult fun, with some of the most brazen and shameless bars in the city. Although Soi 6 was originally famous for being an afternoon bar zone, things have changed in recent times but Soi 6 is STILL OPEN AND BUZZING ALL NIGHT LONG. You really don’t want to miss Soi 6 if you are a single guy.
If you are looking for the most affordable Pattaya nightlife zones where all the city’s expats and foreign inhabitants frequent, we would recommend you take a short stroll over to Soi LK Metro where some places are open 24-hour per day/night. It is not too uncommon to catch a cheap breakfast on Soi LK Metro at 8am in the morning and then to catch an early morning skin show. It’s that sort of street!
As you can see, a few words cannot really explain the Pattaya nightlife scene. It literally has to be experienced to be believed. Whether you are looking to party the night away to the early morning, are looking for some companionship, or are looking to dance the night away or meet new friends, nothing can come close to Pattaya as the ultimate nightlife venue in the world!

Pattaya Nightlife Guide
Pattaya is great place to visit for a few days or a few weeks. The city has so much to offer everyone from water sports to temples, from restaurants and shopping to the world famous nightlife. It really depends on what you are looking for in order to choose the best location and best hotel for you. Luckily, Pattaya has quality hotels in all locations as well as hotels to cater for every budget.
If you prefer something a little quieter, but still in easy travelling distance to Central Pattaya, locations such as Pratamnak and Naklua are great options. Both areas have plenty of restaurants and bars that are suitable for families with quieter, better quality beaches with Pratamnak probably winning on the beach front. Pratamnak and Naklua have an abundance of hotels all within walking distance of the beach and baht bus routes.
Central Pattaya and South Pattaya are excellent locations for people who wish to be a little closer to the action. Central Pattaya is where you will find Soi Buakow and LK Metro – home to some of the most popular bars and entertainment venues in Pattaya. There are lots of hotels located in this area with many being in the mid-range in terms of price and quality. The nightlife does tend to go on until the early hours so is perhaps better suited to night owls rather than those looking to take things a little easier.
South Pattaya is where you will find the famous Walking Street. This location is popular with many middle-eastern visitors as well as Indians and is where you will find a plethora of excellent restaurants catering for this market. There are some quality hotels in this area along with several guesthouses offering value for money. The location is in easy travelling distance of Jomtien as well as being excellently located for Central Pattaya.
Another area of Pattaya that is popular with tourists is Jomtien. Jomtien is located slightly to the south of Pattaya and is located on baht bus routes so is conveniently located for other areas of Pattaya. The area has some excellent beaches and again has a wide selection of accommodation to suit all tastes. At the northern end of Jomtien Beach, you will find Dongtan Beach where there is a selection of ‘gay friendly’ hotels.
If you are looking to take things a little quieter, you may wish to travel slightly further to the south and stay in Bang Sarae. The area has a quieter and has more of village type feel with some quality beaches and seafood restaurants. Close by are some excellent hotels that are certainly more in the mid-range bracket. This is a great place to relax but transport may be required if you are planning on making frequent visits to Jomtien or Pattaya although taxis are available.
