It’s the kind of places where you go in a group, pick a table, open a bottle of whiskey and dance to the live band playing the Thai hits.
Some of the most popular Thai Night Clubs in Chiang Mai include Warm Up Cafe (photo), Monkey (200m from Warm Up), Hotshot Pornping and Bubble (just opposite).
If you don’t have your own vehicle, there are motorcycle taxis available from Zoe in Yellow to Spicy (50 Baht).
After Bar After Bar is a new meeting point for both Westerners and Thais looking for drinks, a game of pool, entertainment or just a place to hang out late at night.
It’s almost impossible to write a complete guide to nightlife in Chiang Mai as there are just too many venues worth mentioning so what you find here is a summary of the best spots in each category: Night clubs, go go bars, beer bars, karaoke bars, soapy massage parlors and small dirty massage shops as well as their exact locations on the map.
It’s not just one area where all the nightlife venues are clustered in but they are spread all over town so it’s a good idea to rent a motorcycle (going rate 250 Baht per 24 hours).
If you are looking for 1.5 hours in heaven bathing, massage and dirty fun with a beautiful white skinned northern Thai girl – Chiang Mai will be your paradise.
The city has the 2nd highest number of soapy massage parlors both in northern and northeastern Thailand, second only to Korat!
It almost looks like an Irish Bar so you can have a relaxed drink with the girls not being too pushing.
The stage has space for maximum eight girls dancing though most of them are quite lazy and just look at themselves in the mirror or try to make eye contact with one of the customers.
The rooms are quite small but what’s nice here they have several mirrors including one on the ceiling.
