Pattaya Nightlife Guide and Prices in 2017

The Nightlife in Pattaya is really special, and it might be the best in all of the world.  Every time I come here I have more fun than the previous time. This place simply just refuses to stop and has one the best nightlife scenes in all of the world.   No other city in the world has given me the same feeling as Pattaya has and I have had my fair share of experience traveling around the world.

I really believe that one needs to see the Pattaya for themselves just like I did my first time a few years ago. The world famous Pattaya has the perfect balance of a few things that I really like.

Beach town? check.

Good cheap food? check.

Easy transportation? Check.

Hot Thai girls everywhere? check.

Quality hotels for cheap price? check…OK I will stop because I think you get my point and you can start to understand what the Pattaya nightlife is really like.

The sheer number of Thai bar girls in Pattaya deserves respect on its own.  There are thousands upon thousands of girls working in all types of establishments in the sex industry. It can be argued that the nightlife in here is the best one in all of Thailand.

Even in low season in Pattaya, is never really dead! For more info check out the article on the low season in Thailand

People say that the nightlife in Pattaya has gone a bit downhill, I assure you it hasn’t.  If anything the number of bars and sex related businesses has increased or dispersed more all over the city Everything changes with time and of course Pattaya is no different. But it is important to note that many things have changed for the better in Pattaya.

They call Pattaya  the“Disneyland for adults“…and after coming here my first time I totally understood what they meant by that.

Having sex in here is like drinking water.  It becomes second nature and you don’t even think of it. When you are here sex is never important as it is always just a few steps away.

This is the general guideline, and this is what you need to know about the Pattaya nightlife and the best hot spots  in the city:


Walking Street

When you think of Go Go bars and the Pattaya nightlife,  you first think of walking street.  Every night this place is rocking.  It seems like every 10-15 meters you walk you will see a go go bar. Most of the girls that work in these go go bars in Pattaya are very hot and quite young.

The nightlife on and entertainment in walking street is geared towards the short time tourist and prices reflect that.  It is pure entertainment.  Remember that Disneyland quote? Well this is probably where it originated…on walking street.  To get a feel for the nightlife in Pattaya it is essential for you to try these Go Go bars at least once since they can offer a lot of entertainment in this area.

 

The Pattaya nightlife on Walking Street, Pattaya Thailand

You also will find a few Ladyboys here. Remember that Pattaya is a city in Thailand, and you could even find a ladyboy taking your order at Burger King, like I had while I was waiting for my flight at the airport in Phuket.  She was very hot.

The Go Go bars are like the strip clubs back home but with a much better experience, and with lower prices.  The Go Go Bars a key element of the Pattaya nightlife. To give you an idea, you could have a great night with spending around 4500  baht (depending on the girl and your negotiating skills).  That includes a few drinks for yourself, a few for lady drinks, plus her barfine and for ST.

Not bad at all considering the fact that she will be very hot with a beautiful body and under 25 years old.  If you ever partied in Vegas then you will think the walking street go go bars in Pattaya are a bargain.  Generally prices in Pattaya are still pretty good.  You just need to know the prices and not pay more.

Average Prices at the go go bars in Pattaya:

  • Drinks: about 80 baht for draft beer, 150 baht regular drinks, 150 baht Lady Drink
  • Barfine:  between 800-1000 baht
  • ST around 2000-2500 baht, LT 2500 baht and up.

 

Soi LK Metro and Soi Buakhoa Nightlife Hot Spots

I must include these hot spots in this Pattaya guide. Although this area is not as touristy as Walking Street is, it still has some excellent Go Go bars and beer bars that are worth checking out. The nightlife here gets quite busy at night, exciting, and is one of the good hot spot areas to check out.

Soi Buakhoa at Night in PattayaBack in early days of Pattaya tourism this nightlife area wasn’t that well known by most tourists as it was mostly frequented by experienced expats. As the years went by, more and more and people heard about the Pattaya online and now the LK Metro area and the surrounding is a well known area.

Actually I have heard that Pattaya city government is trying to make all of Soi Buakhoa a full time dedicated red light district area in Pattaya and remove the other areas. We will see if this actually happens or if it is just rumors.

Girl sitting on Chair in PattayaThis nightlife area of Pattaya has a more relaxed feel to it than walking street.  The atmosphere is not too much in your face like it is on walking street. It feels more intimate and cozy. Pattaya has some really great hotels and in and around this area you can find some really good guest friendly hotels for good prices, due to the fact that it is a bit further away from beach road. In my opinion this is one of the best areas to stay as your home base.  You are right in the middle of the city and it is a 20 minute walk to Walking Street or to Soi 6.  It is wise to stay in an area which allows you to explore and experience the Pattaya nightlife in all ways possible.

Keep in mind that LK Metro area also has a few go go bars.

The Prices At the Go Go’s in Pattaya

  • Barfine is between 800-1000 baht
  • Drinks are around 150 baht depending on what you order, except draft beer which is around 60-70 baht.  Lady drinks around 150 baht
  • Prices for the girls are around 2000-2500 baht for ST, or 3000 baht and up for LT

Prices For the Beer Bars in Pattaya:

  • Barfine: around 400-500 baht
  • Drinks: 50-70 baht for draft, regular drink 120-150 baht, Lady drinks 120-150 baht
  • Prices for girls are around 1500-2000 baht for ST, 2000 baht and up for LT

As can be seen on the map, you will discover Soi Made in Thailand which has a cool name.  This alley in Pattaya has more beer bars with sexy Thai girls working in them and again another good nightlife area to know. About 150 meters north of that is another street filled with more beer bars right across Soi 8.  Usually Pattaya is less busy during July but I was surprised how busy it got on weekends when I was there in July.  Pattaya city is really the type of place that you can always have a great time in.

Soi 7 & Soi 8 Beer Bar Areas

When you think of beer bars in Pattaya you have to think of Soi 7 & Soi 8.  That’s why it wouldn’t be a good start to your night without visiting Soi 7 & 8 for at least a beer or two.  This place is jam packed with beer bars, and the party goes on until 3-4 AM.

The girls in Pattaya like to get get wild and especially so in this area. The nightlife vibe here is pretty good and highly recommended to check out.

The music blasts from both sides of the street and girls are dancing and trying to get your attention to come into their bar to party with them.  When I think of Thai bar girls this is really what comes to my mind.

Beach Road Nightlife

Another Pattaya nightlife hotspot is beach road.  Specifically the part that starts across Soi 7 and Soi 8 heading towards walking street.  In this section of Pattaya you will find tons of freelancers hanging out under the palm trees and trying to hook up with customers.

Beach Road at night is definitely worth checking out and is a component of the nightlife in Pattaya.

You will also find a few foreign girls hanging out in this area of Pattaya as well. It is an excellent area to chill out and watch the coast, or to walk by on your way to walking street or to Soi 8, 7 and 6. It is also a good spot to set up a meeting point with Thai girls you meet online in Pattaya.

 

Soi 6 Area Unique to Pattaya

There is no place like Soi 6 in Pattaya anywhere in Thailand, let alone the rest of the world.  Situated off Beach Road,  this street is about 500 meters away from the bars on Soi 7 & 8.  About 90% of the whole street is just bars filled with Thai bar girls working in them.  I think in terms of entertainment and bang for your buck this is probably the best in Pattaya.

Even though there are beer bars all over Pattaya, Soi 6 is different in that it is very convenient and direct (yes even for a place like Pattaya).

You don’t even need to leave the premises in order to have a great sexy time with the Thai bar girl of your choice. Furthermore, the girls here are surprisingly attractive and fun to hang out with with a playful nature about them.  This area is unique only to Pattaya, having short time rooms right on the premises.  Even thought this place is not new, it is still becoming more and more a favorite place to chill out in Pattaya.

You can come to this place anytime after 1 PM and it will be good, so it is not only a nightlife area in Pattaya.

It is the perfect way to chill out in an afternoon in Pattaya, when go go bars are closed, or when other beer bars don’t have enough girls working in them.  After about 5 PM the entire street is fully alive and kicking until 1 AM when it dies down.

Prices for Soi 6 in Pattaya:

  • Barfine: 300 baht for the room
  • Drinks: draft beer around 60 baht, bottled beers 70-100 baht
  • Full service is around 1000 baht and can be negotiated with the girl of your choice
