Some of these Pattaya nightlife sites are family-friendly, though most are not. There is a lot of diversity in and around the city, with radically different venues within very short distances – sometimes side by side on the same street! Start planning your big night in Pattaya with our guide.
Pattaya Walking Street (Things to do at Pattaya)
If you’ve heard of Pattaya, you’ve likely heard of Walking Street. The name of this half-kilometer beach road is because it is closed to motor vehicles from 6 pm every night. At this time, it immediately becomes crowded with party-going pedestrians. Almost every building on either flank of the street has a nightclub. Or some description bars, many of which are similar to the smaller swiss neighborhoods.
From the massive screen above the Walking Street sign at one end of the street to the great disco at the other end of the mix disco. 808, Club Insomnia, Marine Disco, Candy Shop, and Lucifer 2.0 are among the best.
Cabaret Show (Things to do at Pattaya)
There are several cabaret shows around Pattaya, most notably Tiffany’s Show. Other ear shows and the Colosseum show included. Each has a cast of hundreds of charming dancers, hilarious comedians, and other actors, which guarantees a fun, lively, and varied night. Although most shows are usually family-friendly, they skirt the line of adult humor.
Horizon Rooftop Restaurant and Bar (Things to do at Pattaya)
The Hilton Pattaya Building towers the city’s skyline, making it quickly the most elevated structure on Pattaya Beach Road, if not the highest in the entire area. Just upstairs – on the 34th floor – Horizon Bar. Perhaps it is named because it is so high that you can see the earth’s curvature from the porch. Best spot to enjoy a drink with a view, buy-in-1-drink-free offer (including old favorites and home specials) at selected cocktails from 5 pm to 7 pm makes it a great place to enjoy an incredible sunset. Although there are comfortable sofas out there, it is the table by high bar stool and railings that you will see most people rush to claim. Go there early or book in advance if you want to make your claim.
Hard Rock Cafe Pattaya (Things to do at Pattaya)
The complex rock franchise is known worldwide for its quirky style and great music, from the neon sign on the head and door of the iconic giant guitar to “no drugs or nuclear weapons allowed inside” to the music and movie memorabilia collection inside.
The music starts at 6 pm with Sun and Moon Deck, which shows up on Beach Road. The house band starts at 9.30 pm and plays until the first hour. Excellent rock groups are often played, and unique guest bands are regularly present. The United Hard Rock Hotel hosts the region’s best foam party, the Miss Hard Rock Beauty Contest, and the annual Guitar Festival.
Muay Thai Boxing (Things to do at Pattaya)
Thai kickboxing is world-famous, and there are more ways to enjoy the game in Pattaya. You can watch Max Muay Thai at Sukhumvit Road and professionals work at Pattaya Boxing World’s show or championship match, watch the rising stars in the amateur league at Theprasit Boxing Stadium, or watch a fight with a ring over a beer on Walking Street. Or along the famous street surrounded by two beer bars. The brave punters can even get into the ring. And test their luck against the house warriors at the end of these options. It is a fast and aggressive game, which is probably best enjoyed by a spectator.
Siam@Siam Design Hotel Pattaya (Things to do at Pattaya)
Siam @ Siam Design Hotel Pattaya has an attractive assortment of bars and lounges with different vibrations for other parts of the night. Watch the evening by the Infinity Pool on the 25th floor – which hosts some of the best pool parties in town – before descending to a base at The Roof Sky Bar & Restaurant. There is a garden feel by the sea and like the tempo beats below. Night falls. If you like an indie-electro vibe, go downstairs to the weird car bar, its street-chic style, bike chains for coasters, and a fantastic selection of unique cocktails.
Beach Road Soi 7 (Things to do at Pattaya)
Pattaya’s pink-neon-light beer bars are famous for being slightly towards the seed, but it depends significantly on the area you visit. While not precisely family-friendly, the Soi 7 (between Pattaya Beach Road and Second Road) is all about having a good time and having a few drinks. The drinks here are much cheaper than the drinks in the vicinity of Walking Street. For this reason, the road is especially popular with budget travelers, locals, and young expatriates, especially as a place to have a few drinks before going to clubs.
Mixx Discotheque Pattaya (Things to do at Pattaya)
Mixx discotheque is one of the most glamorous and glamorous of Pattaya nightclubs and consequently incredibly popular. Located just above the end of Walking Street, the 900-square-meter floor space is divided into two rooms – the luxurious-style Rouge Club with hip-hop and R&B music and the modern and fun Crystal Palace house and trance games. The significant local and international DJs attract a young, lively crowd, creating a fun atmosphere and filling the place all night long.
Lucifer 2.0 (Things to do at Pattaya)
Lucifer 2.0 is one of the oldest, best-established Walking Street clubs in Pattaya, albeit brought up to date with a significant overhaul. It is still widely considered the best place in Pattaya for hip-hop. The club is divided into two areas that share the same hell-themed design. Such as the interior of a hell cave. The front area is like a regular and quite cozy bar, while further inside the main room, there is an excellent live group and speakers longer than half the clubber! Not one of the biggest clubs on the street, but it’s one of the most popular and usually packs up by 11 o’clock.
Candy Shop (Things to do at Pattaya)
The candy shop looks like a beach club from the outside, with palm trees, fountains, and oversized soft chairs and sofas. Afterward, you’ll find a long central bar, a small but busy dance floor, and a tremendous live act playing hip-hop and R&B from 9 pm onwards. Although the space around the stage immediately shrinks, there is a barely-used space behind it, where you’ll find a few pool tables and toilets. Candy Shop is an old name on Walking Street, especially popular with local Thais.
Marine Disco (Things to do at Pattaya)
Marine Disco is the primary nightclub in Pattaya. It has been on Walking Street for decades and is extremely popular with locals and tourists alike. It has been extensively modernized, with a bright LED screen on the front and a modern lighting and sound system inside, so it does not show its dignified age. Playing house and EDM music, the Marines get busy around 1 am and stay until dawn.
Club Insomnia Pattaya (Things to do at Pattaya)
Located just above the popular iBar, almost in the middle of Walking Street, Club Insomnia is isolated with stylish decor, great sound and light systems, and a large but bustling dance floor with small stages for show dancers. The busiest after midnight, especially on weekends, has regular special-themed nights on the calendar that are always fun and lively.
The impressive residential and occasional international guest DJs play a good mix of hip-hop, house, and EDM tracks. The drink prices are also quite reasonable, making it an equally popular destination for tourists and locals alike.
808 Night Club (Things to do at Pattaya)
Located above the candy shop, the 808 has perhaps the most stylish and innovative design of any club in Pattaya. It consists of several small tiered areas fixed downwards in the brightly lit main bar near the stage, giving the space an almost Colosseum-like shape. It means that while your friends can enjoy a certain level of isolation around one of the many tables, it makes the dance a little more complicated because there are no large single flat floors. Playing great house and EDM tracks, it is an enchanting and conventional place that achieves a “First Class Clubbing” tagline.
