Best Places for Nightlife Experiences in Pattaya

Be ready to pamper yourself for one of the most amazing nightlife experiences in Pattaya. Here are some of the places in Pattaya where you can enjoy your weekend or can make your night memorable.

Walking Street

Walking Street, Pattaya


A heaven for absolute party lovers, Pattaya’s Walking Street which is a pivot of beer bars, nightclubs, music bars, go-go bars, restaurants, and massage parlours. Being a part of Pattaya Beach, the half-kilometer stretch of Walking Street shuts its motorable traffic in the evening and open its doors for party animals from 6 pm. Like most of the cities in Thailand, Pattaya is also known for its sex tourism and also depicts itself as a Sin City. Therefore, before visiting this attraction, do note that this place is not ideal for family, couples, and females.

Horizon Bar, Hilton Pattaya

Horizon Bar, Hilton-Pattaya


If you’ve ever dreamed of eating atop some dazzling skyscraper then Horizon Bar at Hilton Pattaya is the place which you’re looking for. Located on the 34th floor, this alfresco (open-air) rooftop bar in Pattaya bids a remarkable fusion of sophisticated space, world-class cuisines, premium cocktails, sedating ambiance, and pulchritudinous 360-degree eagle-eye view of the city. This is the best place for nightlife in Pattaya where you can take your consort for a romantic date to fill your Thailand holidays with enduring memories. Must try is their cocktails as they have an array of classic and signature drinks to match the taste of the served dishes.

Hard Rock Cafe

Hard Rock Cafe Pattaya


Well, I am assuming many of you must be aware of this world-famous cafe. Evidently, all the chain restaurants of Hard Rock Cafe are amazing, but this one is a bit special. The cafe remains exuberant throughout the day but in the night time, as the music hits the floor, it comes alive like anything. And if you want to have the best time here, visit the Hard Rock Cafe on Saturday as it hosts the famous Beach Foam X parties where the entire pool inflated full of foam for squawking parties with some brilliant music in the backdrop. But, that’s not all, inside the cafe, there is proper dining arrangement beneath the stage to savour the taste of their scrumptious offering while enjoying the music or performances of popular bands. While in Pattaya, if you’re looking for some different taste than their traditional one, Hard Rock Cafe is the place to grab a bite of western delicacies as it offers a peculiar range of American fares in their menu, which I am pretty much sure you won’t be able to resist.

Muay Thai Boxing

In the glamourous Muay Thai Stadium, you can witness the live fights between international and local fighters that are held on every Wednesday and Friday from 8 pm.
