Located at the far end of Soi 4 alley, opposite FORK & CORK, this cosy gay bar (since 2008) serves some great cocktails. Perfect for small get-togethers and those looking for a quieter spot.

JJ Park is popular with the more mature madams of Bangkok who enjoy nothing more than a really good karaoke night out.

Management helpfully provides both the equipment and a stage. Great place to practice for the next series of Thai Idol.

add a review & photos

Located about a 5-minute walk from the main gay bars, Soi Twilight (or “Soi Pratuchai” in Thai) is Bangkok’s gay ‘red light district’. The small walkway houses a few gay go-go bars that cater almost exclusively to foreigners and offer a very different atmosphere from the Silom scene.

These bars feature stage shows 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. You pay for the company of a guy by purchasing both yourself and him a drink and then tipping him when you leave.
