Besides the bar-scene, Bangkok has a wide variety of places that offer a great evening out for people looking to enjoy themselves. Below I have described the most common categories. I have only named a few places, because many come and go fast. Check the links on the Sidebar to find the places that are hot >>>

Country Bars

Wooden chairs and tables, dark, and a life band that plays songs for life (pleeng peua chivit), alternating with a DJ playing whatever he feels like. Decoration comprises buffalo skulls and other animal remains. Communist style decorations are popular too. Late in the evening (alcohol first) you see people dancing in Thai style (or disco, depending on the choice of the DJ) around their tables. The public consists of ordinary Thai and especially the country bars in the outskirts of Bangkok have a very local feel. This sometimes includes a fight. The food is good but expensive, drinks are reasonably priced. [Baan Mai Daeng (Viphavadi Road) • Beurak Mai Thai (Pahonyothin Road Soi 30)]
