Bangkok’s longest-running gay bar. Telephone has been serving drinks and food since 1987. Originally, each table had its own telephone and customers could, literally, call one another.

Times have changed, but Telephone Pub remains a very popular gay hangout for pre-clubbing drinks and crowd-watching. There’s free WiFi, karaoke lounge with huge video screen (3rd floor).

Soi Twilight

Soi Twilight (Soi Pratuchai) – CLOSED

Surawong, Bangkok

Reported CLOSED for redevelopment (May 2019). Many former venues relocated to Soi relocated to Patpong 2 Rd.

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.
