If you are trying to locate the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Bangkok we definitely can help you out. This LGBT nightlife guide will also cover other topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area of town along Silom Soi 4 and more!
On top of that some cool LGBT dating sites in Thailand will get a mention, particularly some sites for those who are more interested in hooking up than getting too deep into a serious relationship at the moment. Plus we will dive into all of the best LGBT pride events and meet ups we know about in this city.
Not all of you will be interested in going out to a lesbian or gay bar or nightclub to try and meet people near you so we cover all your options. You can read more of our queer guides for major cities around Asia here.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Bangkok
Let’s start this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Bangkok:
- Respecton Vol. 1 at 58/18-20, Silom Rd
- Maggie Choo’s at Fenix Novotel 320 Silom Rd
- Balcony Pub Bar at 84-88 Silom 4 Alley
- The Stranger Bar at 114, 14 Silom 4 Alley
- SugarBowl at 76 Silom Soi 4
- Telephone Pub & Restaurant at 114/11-13 Silom Soi 4 Alley
- G’s Bangkok at 74 Silom Soi 4
- Banana Bar on 4 at 114/17 Silom Soi 4
- Fake Club The Next Gen at 60, 1 Ratchadaphisek Rd
- DJ Station at Silom Soi 2
Best Gay Bars & Clubs
You are going to find everything you need along Silom Soi 4 which is the main gay area of town. Gay bars are all over this part of town, just be careful because this is also very close to the gay red light district of Bangkok.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Bangkok
We don’t know of any lesbian bars in Bangkok for women to meet women. Unlike some other places around the globe most gay venues in Thailand are pretty much packed with men, if we had to recommend one place we would say to try out DJ Station.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
We aren’t really comfortable discussing all of the trans bars in Bangkok because so many have to do with prostitution. You can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Drags Shows at Maggie Choo’s & The Stranger Bar
- Calypso Cabaret at 2194 Charoen Krung Rd, Wat Phraya Krai
- Playhouse Cabaret at Shanghai Mansion Bangkok, 479 481 Yaowarat Rd
- Golden Dome Cabaret at 252/5 Soi Ratchadaphisek 18
The top two would probably give you the best chance of picking up a ladyboy outside of a red light area. We did our best to avoid ladyboy go go’s and gay go go’s in this post, but in a city like this it can be hard to know if you are about to hook up for free or are with a prostitute.
We know the scene in Thailand pretty well, but not as well as the local experts. Our goal is to keep our lists as up to date as possible but we need your help to do so.
If anything on here is old news or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know. Also, if you think any venues should be listed as solely places for men to meet men or women to meet women fill us in, thanks for the assist.
Many of these gay or lesbian bars and clubs can be found in the LGBT nightlife area of Silom Soi 4. Go do your partying in that part of town and you will be able to check out the various venues and find out the right spots for your personal tastes.

Best LGBT Dating Sites
We know that going out to an LGBT bar or club is not for everyone. We don’t all enjoy the party scene, and these days many of us have become more and more introverted which is totally understandable.
Plus in this city you always have to wander if people want to get paid to hook up whether you are in a gay red light district or not. The first sites we want to discuss are owned and operated by Adult Friend Finder.
We bet most of you have seen the AFF links online before since they have helped millions of people hook up in their over fifteen years in the game. Their best site to use to find gay men near you to hook up with is Men Nation and it is very popular in major cities like this one.
The ladies will have more success on Lesbian Personals, you can probably guess what it is all about. Those who are bi-sexual and enjoy hooking up with all genders can use Adult Friend Finder because it covers all the users on their numerous kinky sites. For fast m4m hook ups nothing out there is going to work better than Men Nation.
For f4f hook ups Lesbian Personals is going to be your top option. We also should tell you about the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Bangkok has been popular for a long time but now there are more Thai ts near you than ever looking for guys to date or hook up with.
Alright then, we have told you all about the Bangkok LGBT nightlife as well as we know how. You know where to go to find mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs plus drag shows to party with trans and all sorts of LGBT dating sites in Thailand. We hope you make the most of the information at hand.
