Possibly the most famous gay bar in Bangkok, and also one of the oldest.  Telephone Pub & Restaurant (aka Telephone Bar) has been serving drinks and good food since 1987.

Originally, each table had its own telephone from which customers were able to call another table.  Of course, things have changed since then.  Free WiFi is available to customers.

Telephone is a popular gay hangout for a drink or a quick bite before heading to the clubs.  There is a karaoke lounge on the 3rd floor, equipped with huge video screens and thousands of songs choices.  Private karaoke room available.

Management have done a slight refresh with new signs and installed even more ultra-violet lights. This makes everyone looked more tanned, but be warned - don't wear black.

The redevelopment of this corner building is welcome improvement on the decrepit and derelict structure that has blighted the entrance to Soi 4 for so many years.  The coffee is pretty good, too.

Soi Twilight

Located about a 5-minute walk from Silom Soi 2 and 4, Soi Twilight is known as the gay ‘red light district’ of Bangkok.

Soi Twilight (Soi Pratuchai)

Surawong, Bangkok | map

Audience Rating: 3.3 stars from 7 votes - Click to vote

The small walkway known as “Soi Twilight” (or “Soi Pratuchai” in Thai) is home to a number of gay go-go dance bars that cater almost exclusively to foreign tourists and offer a very different experience from Soi 2 or Soi 4 in Silom.

These go-go bars host shows every hour or so, that can be fun to watch if not taken too seriously.  The content can range from erotic dancing to routines that leave only a little to the imagination.

In host bars, you pay for the company of a guy by purchasing both yourself and him a drink and then tipping him when you leave.

  2. “Been coming to Tawan for many years but every year I have to sit through shows that go on forever. It's a mistake. I am there to choose a muscle guy to take home. I can't take home a show can I? Tawan makes me wait for 30-40 minutes before I can see a number on a guy to select him. Half of that time is with Thai drag. If I am coming to a ...”

  2. “Dining at Sky Bar @ lebua is indeed a very pleasant experience. Though the food is rather pricey, the stunning view of the Bangkok skyline makes every single cent worth. The folks at Sky Bar @ lebua enforces a strict policy on dresscode though, so you may want to take note when you visit this place.”

  1. “Of the rooftop bars and restaurants, Vertigo is one of the best. It imposes a dress code - no strapless sandals or shorts - but isn't as stuffy or unwelcoming to tourists as nearby Scirocco. Drinks are well-made and no more overpriced than you would expect from a rooftop bar in a 5-star hotel - the lychee martini is especially refreshing ...”
