Nana Plaza has been a symbol representing the naughty nightlife scene of Bangkok for decades. It is conveniently located on the Sukhumvit Soi 4 and unlike anything else you have ever seen.
If you’re new to Bangkok and do not know where to start, Bangkok’s nightlife team is here to help.
We have been to every bar more than a few times and have summarized our findings below:
What’s up Banana Plaza?
Nana Plaza has always dealt with sexual “entertainment”.
As you approach this “entertainment” complex, a huge neon sign with the words “The Largest Adult Playground in the World” glows. Whether it’s really an “adult playground” or not, then to say the least, Nana Plaza is an intriguing place.
And without a doubt, Nana Plaza is one of the most famous red light districts in Thailand. The U-shaped building design is similar to an outdoor mall. Nana Plaza has 30 bars spread over 3 floors in total, employing more than 500 Thai girls and ladyboys.
Well, in this “mall” there is definitely something for everyone, no matter what causes your blood to flow.
There are a variety of bars with hot Thai girls to choose from. And if you prefer something else, there are bars with members of the opposite sex.
Everywhere there is a unique combination of entertainers, music and erotic shows.
To start the night, we recommend that you sit outside and enjoy a beer in one of the beer bars on the ground floor, and quietly watch the night unfold in vivid color.
Later, you can slip into one of the little gogo bars and order a stiff drink, watch a stunning naked lady dance on stage with a bare-chested 18-year-old Thai babe sitting on your lap. What a great way to keep warm!
For a change of pace, you might want to check out the next Ladyboy bar, just to better understand why Thai ladyboys are so famous around the world!
And after that, you meander to the 2nd or 3rd floor, find the best bars, and sit down to perform at some of the sexiest shows in Bangkok.
With so many bars, girls and gigs, Nana Plaza is truly a place to discover the true meaning of the Echo Teachers verse: “One night in Bangkok and your oyster worlds”.
