As someone that loves a good night out, visiting Pattaya was an absolute must on my list of places to go. From the neon lights radiating off beachside bars and clubs to late night street food stands sizzling up all kinds of flavorful delights – Pattaya has it all!
Exploring this vibrant city after sundown is one of the best ways to take in its unique charm and energy-filled atmosphere.
I’m excited to get started sharing my experience with you here today; buckle up for a comprehensive look at nightlife in Pattaya!
Pattaya has fast grown over the past decade as a bustling sex mecca filled with gorgeous and hot Thai girls and women looking to hook up with Farangs. This is something that even Bangkok can’t match up to!
A lot of people say that “Good guys go to heaven, bad guys go to Pattaya!” if you clearly know what that means.
Globally touted as the “Sex capital of the world” and the “Disneyland for adults”, Pattaya has its own vibe that is quite difficult to describe were the hot Thai girls enjoy their work more than other girls would in this profession in other parts of the globe.
I have spent a couple of nice extended vacations in Pattaya in every way the city is known for and one thing I realized is that there is probably no other city where you don’t get looked at in a strange way if you walk in a normal restaurant or a shopping mall with a sexy bar girl.
That is how open and comfortable the culture and mindset of the Pattaya natives are!

Nightlife In Pattaya: 10 Best Things To Do In Pattaya In 2024
The nightlife in Pattaya is simply amazing and in many ways better than what you experience in Bangkok.
One of the most popular bustling beach towns in Thailand, there are tens of thousands of sexy Thai ladies you would get to meet in every street corner and many different types of places to meet them.
There are the short time bars, soapy massage parlors and hot freelancers in malls, clubs, and on the streets with whom you can randomly hook up for a night or two or even more. Of course, the popular Go-Go bars, beer bars, and happy ending massage salons as well.
Apart from strolling down the streets to hook up with a hottie, you can even try out some great online dating services as well. I have done that myself and the aftermath was simply HOT!
With so many hot girls with “normal” day jobs here and there, you can easily arrange dates using Thai online dating websites like Thai Cupid and Thai Friendly as well in case you don’t want to pay for sex every day.
I’ll tell you more about these dating services later. But before that, let me give you a quick glimpse of the hot and happening nightlife and girls in Pattaya from bars to massage salons to night clubs and escort services.
Hell, I have even had mind-boggling experiences at a Blow Job Bar there! So, let’s read on to know more!
1. Nightlife Areas
When you decide what you want to do in Pattaya at night, we help you make the most of your trip.
The scene in Pattaya is divided into several main areas with many small groups throughout the city. Next, we will describe the most important places where you can have fun.
Discover our nightlife in Pattaya to get a deeper insight into the world-famous nightlife.
2. Walking Street
The famous Walking Street is the epicenter of Pattaya Day, stretching from Bali Hai Pier in the south to the beach road in the north. This neon-lit street is closed to traffic from 6 pm until dawn.
This long strip of pure hedonism is a paradise for parties around the world. Lined up with one
A mix of bars, bars, restaurants, discos and world-class concert halls, anyone visiting Pattaya should experience this wonderland vacation.
It is not just the shadow side of Pattaya, but also thousands of people who come here at night to attend great concerts, eat fresh seafood on the water or visit one of the many street performers.
Even organized tours of Chinese and Korean tourists regularly take to the streets to enjoy the atmosphere.
The party starts at 22 o’clock to warm up properly. If you want to see the road, but avoid the crowds, you should come a little earlier. Maybe you can enjoy fantastic seafood and then sit in front of the crowd in one of the outdoor beer bars.
However, if you are immersed in the action, go later, and get carried away by the pleasure. A warning prevents locals from contacting you to tell you where to go. It is a sure way to pay for your drinks.
Do not be afraid to enter bars, clubs, or shops. You will not be bitten (unless you want to), all staff are very friendly and the bad old times of cheating are over.
The prices of drinks in the pedestrian zones vary greatly from place to place, and the concentration of bars/clubs gives rise to intense competition.
Pay attention to the usual happy hour rates that apply throughout the night in different locations. It is possible to switch from one bar to the next after hours of luck to always have a good deal.
The beers on tap (Chang or Leo) can be bought for only 69 baht, especially if they are set aside. The most expensive drinks are available after midnight in GoGo and in nightclubs.
ThaiFriendly offers the best hotel deals in Walking Street.
3. Beach road / 2nd road
The nightlife along Pattaya Beach Road is not focused on a single sector and includes some self-spaced evenly between the beach path and the second path. Along the beach path, you will find a wide selection of international and Thai restaurants.
Many houses are independent, but you will also find a selection of bars and restaurants attached to the main hotels that share this street, such as the Marriott and the Hard Rock.
If you decide what to do in Pattaya at night, spend an afternoon on the beach path. It’s a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon in one of the bars or restaurants by the sea and enjoy a slower pace.
4. Go-Go Bars in Pattaya
The origin of the term go-go dancing goes back to a 1949 British film Whisky Galore! that tells the story of the sinking of a ship loaded with whiskey.
The term was popularized even more in American heavy metal band Metallica’s Hit single “Whiskey a Go-Go”!
Though it is usually hard to distinguish between a nightclub and a Go-Go bar, these usually include a wide variety of indoor bars with dancers and/or hostesses.
Go-Go bars in Thailand are extremely popular amongst people who have wild fantasies and interests. These bars typically offer striptease and are most often venues for prostitution.
The dancers at these bars are usually available to be bar fined by customers. Foreigners visiting Pattaya are mostly interested in spending their night outings in nightclubs and Go Go bars, most of which are found in red-light districts.
There are currently more than 70 Go Go Bars in Pattaya catering to foreigners and the majority of them are located all along Walking Street.Many of these bars can also be found at Sois.
I have visited around 13 Go Go bars in Pattaya and Bangkok, and what I have found that these bars have the most attractive girls from all the nightlife places in the city. That’s the one big reason you need to pay more than anywhere else.
Be it buying lady drinks, paying their bar fines, and taking them for a short time or a long time, you’ll be shelling out more money than usual.
The nightlife in Pattaya is said to be exquisite and the nightclubs and bars are one of the main attractions of the night.
It’s always a great way to start your evening by visiting a couple of Go-Go Bars at around 9 pm as that’s usually the time when the girls start working and traditionally dance on stage altogether.
My personal favorite is the Lady Love Go-Go bar on the Soi LK Metro, that has fun and naughty girls. The place has an open shower where the girls are putting lots of soap on their naked bodies while dancing to the music.
Soi LK Metro is much smaller than Walking Street of course but still, home to about a dozen Go Go’s and the atmosphere in those places is a lot more “laid back” and less cheeky than in Walking Street.
Soi LK Metro used to be a lot cheaper than Walking Street, but with the rapidly growing tourism sector and the growing popularity of Go-Go bars in the region, the prices at Soi LK Metro have also increased a lot.
5. Girly Bars in Pattaya
While Go Go bars have grown in popularity in the past few years, the girly bars here have been among the popular wild nightlife destinations for a long time and are by far the most prevalent entertainment place in Pattaya.
There are many new bars coming up while others and there are easily more than a thousand bars in Pattaya!
You just hang out at the beer bars as most of them have cheap beer all day and all night, free pool, and live sport on big TV screens.
I have mostly hung out with the girls in these beer bars. There are pretty damn entertaining and fun to hang out with. If you compare the ease of hooking up with them as compared to gogo girls, they’re a lot easier going.
It’ll just take a few seconds to minutes and the lady will ask you for a drink after you sat down. The legendary Soi 6 Pattaya has the highest concentration of beer bars, particularly on Soi 7, 8, and 9 but there are hundreds more all around town.
6. Happy Ending Massage in Pattaya
I always tell my friends, “Massage and Thailand are brilliant bed partners”. There are hundreds and hundreds of small massage salons in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket combined together.
Almost all of these massage parlors are tourist hot spots and have girls in short skirts or tight shirts yelling at you “hello, handsome man! massage!”
What I noticed while walking around town is that there is a hot massage parlor at every two beer bars you pass.
These salons are spread all around town and it really doesn’t matter where you go. The most famous street in this category is Soi 13/2 – a 200m long strip connecting Beach.
7. Soapy Massage Parlours in Pattaya
If you are looking for a massage and if you want it to be hot and wet, then going for a Soapy Massage in Pattaya is the best out for you! There are more than a dozen massage parlors spread around town.
These parlors have steaming hot girls who can make you hard between your legs just by looking at them for a few seconds.
These girls at the Soapy parlors are usually divided into two groups and prices:
- Fishbowl girls: These girls are usually employed by the parlor, and will cost you around 1,500-2,000 Baht.
- Side-line girls: These chics though costly, are the most tempting one of the lot. They are usually not employed by the parlor and generally white-skinned and much more attractive will cost you about 2,500-3,000 Baht.
The prices mentioned above include 1.5 hours with a girl of your choice including bath and sex.
Soapy massages in Pattaya are really one of the hot wants for tourists and even Thai Natives. Sabai Dee is the most popular and the longest established soapy in town.
This is a business that never runs into losses, so there are new parlors popping into the scene every now and then.The last time I was in Pattaya, Honey 2 Body Massage & Sabai Room were two new parlors that had opened across the street.
8. Soi Buakhao Nightlife
The metropolises Soi Buakhao and LK become the second love in Pattaya’s nightlife. Soi Buakhao, located between the second and third streets, is not one of the main tourist areas.
A few years ago, this region was visited mainly by expatriates and frequent visitors.Over time, however, more and more newcomers are looking for an alternative place to enjoy Pattaya’s nightlife.
If you are looking for things to do at night, you should be on your list here. There are hundreds of small pubs and restaurants. The atmosphere here is a bit more relaxed than in the pedestrian area and the bars are full from noon until 2 am.
The subway station LK is a small square near the intersection of Soi Buakhao and Soi Diana. You will find a selection of gogos and bars that are similar to those of Walking Street.
The LK subway scene is a little less hectic than the pedestrian area and a great place to discover this side of Pattaya without madness.
Soi Buakhao is not closed to traffic at night and the road is a busy traffic artery. So be careful when navigating the streets, especially if you have a drink.
Prices here may be cheaper than in Walking Street, especially Go-Go, and most offer great deals. The subway LK is the kind of action center, the most expensive place.
I recommend that you first visit the many bars along Soi Buakhao, where you can easily find the best local beer deals for only 69 Baht per bottle.
The area around the LK and Soi Buakhao subway stations is full of excellent hotels to enjoy the nightlife.
9. Blow Job Bars in Pattaya
Many people can’t even imagine that there actually exists something like a “Blow Job Bar”. But this is actually an extremely popular attraction for foreigners visiting Pattaya and looking for some below the belt oral action!
There are currently 15 bars specializing in oral sex. Many customers wish to get blown off by the hottie at the massage parlor, but they usually aren’t willing to give you a blow job. If getting blown is your fantasy, then you are simply at the wrong place.
10. Jomtien nightlife
The nightlife of Jomtien is very different from that of downtown Pattaya. It is a much quieter way to spend the afternoons when you spend your holidays in Pattaya.
The main area to enjoy the nightlife of Jomtien is at the northern end of Jomtien Beach Road and Jomtien Second Roads.
Jomtien Nightlife Bars
The focus here is on a more relaxed night. Hundreds of restaurants offer dishes from around the world.
On the way to Jomtien Beach, you will find a variety of places where you can enjoy the most peaceful atmosphere. Over a good meal or a quiet drink, watch the night go by.
At the southern end of Jomtien Beach Road, you will find several concert halls, where every night hundreds of tourists are offered western rock music.
It is worth to visit these bars to enjoy the cozy atmosphere. However, if you visit regularly, you will find that the group is the same almost every night.
If you like the liveliest scenes, visit the Jomtien Beer Complex on the second Jomtien Street. Here you will find about fifty small beer houses with girls, loud music and cheap beer.
There is a small Go Go in Jomtien, but if you wish, we recommend that you head into town towards the pedestrian zone or metro LK.
The drink prices in Jomtien are very reasonable, even in the biggest bars and restaurants of the hotel.
11. Night Clubs in Pattaya
The nights in Pattaya are the perfect times when you can go out and meet the beautiful Thai girls who are otherwise busy working at a mall or restaurant during the day.
At night, you only have the night clubs to meet non-working girls! 90% of the night clubs in Pattaya are located on Walking Street.
Though you need to be prepared that these nightclubs are usually full of girls with normal day jobs working here as hookers to supplement their salary.
Differ off Second Road in North Pattaya is the most popular Thai night club in Pattaya. Apart from foreigners, the club is usually full of locals and Thais who come to Pattaya from other cities for holiday.
The girls here are not usually hookers, so, don’t expect the girls to look and smile at you right away. Apart from sex, if you are a music lover, then there’s a live band playing the Thai hits, every night.
12. Hookers & Escort Agencies in Pattaya
You are in Thailand and how can you not expect hot hookers at every corner of the street smiling back at you when you walk by. Many foreigners.
Most foreigners visiting Pattaya and Bangkok usually meet hot girls by simply “ordering” one from an escort agency.Once your call is booked, the hottie will knock on the door of your hotel room or apartment.
The rates for getting laid with a Thai hooker is usually at 4,000 Baht per 2 hours. This is still one of the most convenient ways to get laid, though one of the pricier ones.
Though the great thing is that you get to knock her for 2 rounds, which is not really common for a short time. This is what it is like in Pattaya. If you compare it to Bangkok they got a standard of 5,000 Baht for 2 hours.
GET A HOT THAI DATE ONLINE!
If you want to meet girls in Pattaya who are not primarily out for money, then you would either talk to employees in the malls, restaurants, etc. or like already mentioned by signing up at one of the popular online dating sites.
I have mostly used only two of the most popularly used Thai dating websites, ThaiCupid, and ThaiFriendly!
ThaiCupid is the oldest and evidently the most popularly used dating website all over Thailand. It is even the favorite choice amongst foreigners who are in Thailand or are looking to visit the country for some erotic fun!
I have heard a lot from fellow tourists aboutThaiCupid and then I signed up to the website during one of his previous trips to Pattaya.
The website has been in the online dating business for almost 2 decades now and is trusted By Over 1.5 Million Singles, both foreigners and Thai natives.
ThaiCupid is a part of the well-established Cupid Media network that operates over 30 reputable niche dating sites, which further makes its services more reliable.
The userbase of the website is massive where you get a chance to connect with over 1.5 million singles from Thailand and across the world.
I have met so many girls through ThaiCupid and had some of the best sexual encounters of my life with sometimes shy and sometimes wild Thai chics.
The website helps you to find the perfect match, no matter where you are in the world, bringing Thailand to the ones searching for love. That hot Thai chic you talked to on the website will be all yours once you are in Thailand!
ThaiFriendly along with ThaiCupid is one of the two most commonly used dating websites in Thailand.
I signed up with ThaiFriendly simply because I wanted a change in my online adventures that would lead to my bedroom while I was in Pattaya for a leisure trip.It was my second time in Pattaya when I signed in.
Surprisingly the website is really active with over thousands of members online throughout the day, be it morning, afternoon, evening or even late night at 2 AM.
Thai ladies from Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Phuket, and all over Thailand are available online to chat with single men, whether Thai natives or foreigners like me!
