DEMO Bangkok boasts two rooms, one room with electronic dance music and another smaller room with hip-hop music. Within a warehouse, this club gives off a stylish industrial vibe, with exposed brick, graffiti and metal beams throughout. DEMO Bangkok is comparatively small to the other nightclubs in the city, and therefore is jam-packed almost every night due to its popularity. It is a good idea to book a table in advance or arrive early to get one. As well, DEMO Bangkok’s security is extremely tight, so make sure to bring your passport. Entrance is free for locals, however this club has a reputation for charging tourists at the door.
Residing in the heart of Thonglor is BEAM. This exclusive nightclub features two storeys, each with their own design and type of music. With a dance floor on each level, BEAM has become a staple in nightclub entertainment and dancing in Bangkok. On the first storey, BEAM’s Dalmatian room plays deep house and techno music for those who love to rave. On the second storey, DJs spin the latest hip-hop and trap music for guests. Entrance to BEAM Bangkok is free most of the time, but when an event is on guests must pay cover fees. Tables are limited within this nightclub, so if you wish to sit, it is recommended to book one in advance.
Barbarbar is one of Bangkok’s craziest and most exciting clubs. Featuring almost 100% electronic dance and house music, Barbarbar will keep you dancing into the late hours of the night. Barbarbar boasts a giant dance floor and frequent events with local and international DJs. Barbarbar is less expensive than most of the other bars in the Thonglor area, and therefore brings in a crowd of mostly young locals and students. Similar to DEMO Bangkok. Barbarbar will let locals in for free but charge foreigners at the door and ask them to purchase a bottle. As well, the security at Barbarbar will only accept original passports as a form of identification for people visiting from out of the country.
