Top Bars and Clubs in Pattaya
When visiting the beach location of Pattaya, apart from sitting in the sun and going for a swim during the day, you may find yourself wanting a nice refreshing drink or two.
There are many areas and locations that you can find that refreshing beverage but if you are up for a night out then you cannot miss stumbling across the main hub of nightlife ‘Walking Street’.
Walking Street into the Epicentre of Nightlife
Walking Street is a half kilometre beach-side street that is packed full of neon lighted bars, nightclubs and places that will show a little bit more skin that what you would see on the beaches. They will close the road from 6pm until 2am so partygoers can fill the street and wander from bar to bar all night long.
The great thing about the nightlife on Walking Street is that because it is so dense with places to go you could spend multiple trips here and still wouldn’t be able to see it all.
Where to Party

Located halfway down Walking Street you will find Pattaya’s liveliest club that is always packed full of crowds dancing to bass fuelled house and techno music under the club lights and lasers.
Like most clubs, they sell an array of drinks that can range in price but average around 150 – 200 Baht for beer and spirits. If you arrive from 10pm until 12am they have happy hour with 50% off all drinks. This should make you even happier.
