Most importantly, it is quite partying all night in Bangkok.

The streets of Bangkok are flooded with bars, pubs and lounges, which feature English, American and Irish styles. You can enjoy your favorite drink in the shade of dimly lit lights in any of these places.  The dark streets also boast Jazz and live music. At the Go-Go bars the bikini-clad girls dancing to the tune of fantastic music one can feel the real essence of life ebbing out.

When it comes to naming a few of the places that are quite loved by the crowd, you have to talk about the Bulls Head. The Bulls Head on Sukhumvit road is a British styled pub with regular quiz and theme nights. Actually, Sukhumvit road is flooded with British, Irish, German and American bars and clubs which would interest expatriates.

Open Air Vertigo Bar is another popular hangout of the city. Concept CM2 is another club with a huge disco. Its hip hop and karaoke nights are the most popular throughout the city. The Narcissus club provides ostentatious décor with trance and techno playing all night long. The Bed Supper club provides international DJ set with Asian fusion music.
