Bangkok Gay Bars

A complete guide to all current Bangkok Gay Bars

Bangkok has one of the most interesting gay scenes in the world. It’s no secret that Thailand has a reputation for its red-light districts and gay party scene. For a first time visitor to Thailand, Bangkok Gay Bars can be hard to navigate. Where to go? What’s a normal bar as you don’t want to end up in a GoGo Bar?

We are here to help you answer these questions. Bangkok Gay Bars typically fit into 2 categories. Your normal gay bar, and a host/boy bar. It’s quite often the lines can be blurred with these and at first glance many times you wouldn’t know the difference. Luckily Bangkok is quite unique and does a good job of keeping some distance between its red light district and normal gay street.

Most gay travellers who arrive in Bangkok find themselves on Silom Soi 4. Location minutes walk from Sala Daeng BTS Skytrain station it’s a very easy location to get to. Most gay travellers actually choose hotels in the area of Silom or Sathorn to be close to the gay bars and clubs. Silom Soi 4 has an array of different bars and restaurants, from drag shows to restaurants and even karaoke bars. There is only 3 commercial venues on Silom Soi 4. At the top end of the soi, there is the GoGo Bar  Jupiter 2018. There is also Banana Bar On 4 which is a host bar and upstairs you will find the new Banana Boys gogo bar.

After the closing in 2019 of the famous Soi Twilight, most of the gay commercial venues have moved around the Patpong area. Drinks are more expensive here, even in the bars. What most people don’t realize is the boys who work here are actually looking for customers to take them home.

In general, many gay travellers start their evenings on Silom Soi 4 before heading to Silom Soi 2 for clubbing.
