What are the best areas to stay in Pattaya for nightlife?


Pattaya Beach is the best area in Pattaya for nightlife as it’s located right in the centre surrounded by the somewhat notorious Walking Street, Soi 6, Soi Buakhao and Soi LK. However, there are alternative areas in Pattaya for nightlife that are more suitable for those who are not single. In this article, we dive deeper into the best areas in Pattaya for nightlife.


 

Where to stay in Pattaya for nightlife:

 

1. Pattaya Beach


The best area to stay in Pattaya for nightlife is Pattaya Beach. During the day, many of the alleys (so-called soi’s) are the ideal place to find bars, which attract many foreigners and day-time drinkers. During the evening, Walking Street, which is connected to Beach Road, is one of the most popular nightlife places in Pattaya as it hosts two nightclubs. Besides, the popular Soi Buakhao and Soi LK are located only 750 meters from Beach Road, meaning that all the important areas for single men (read: red-light districts) are within reach. There is no other nightlife area in Pattaya that can compete with Pattaya Beach, however, for those who don’t want to spend time in these notorious nightlife areas, there are alternatives. 

Note: for those who want to be right in the middle of the action, you can choose to stay near Walking Street itself. Pattaya Beach does have much better hotels. The area that covers both Walking Street and Pattaya Beach is called Central Pattaya. You can find any suitable hotel in this area, as it’s all connected close to the nightlife highlights of Pattaya.

2. Jomtien Beach


Most Bangkokians tend to stay near Jomtien Beach when they want to escape the chaotic Bangkok and trade it for beach life for a few days. Jomtien Beach is a family-friendly area in Pattaya but you can find bars here as well. Most importantly, there are several so-called beachfront and beach clubs to be found close by, such as The Oxygen, Suttangrak, The Sky Gallery and Summer House that are ideal for a laid-back night with proper food and strong cocktails. It is the complete opposite of what Pattaya Beach is and perhaps that’s why it’s so popular too. 

Note: you can stay either in Pratamnak Hill, Jomtien or Najomtien. Although these are three different areas, the description of Jomtien Beach above applies to all three areas. Jomtien however, is by far the most popular area of all three.

3. Naklua


Naklua is the last area in Pattaya for nightlife we recommend. It’s the area north of Central Pattaya and somewhat quiet compared to Central Pattaya. You need to take a songthaew (the adapted pick-up trucks) or a taxi to get to the main party district in Central Pattaya, however, there are beach clubs such as S'more Beach Bar, Surf & Turf Beach Club & Restaurant, The Beach Club Pattaya, Coast Beach Club & Bistro Pattaya and The Glass House Silver to be found in this area. These are ideal when you want to relax and enjoy the beach while sipping cocktails during the day. Most up-scale hotels have their own beach clubs too. In Naklua, you can find the Sanctuary of Truth as well, which is one of the top attractions the city has to offer.

In conclusion: Naklua is much quieter than Central Pattaya, but you can find amazing hotels here, which are perfect to get through the day and whenever you want to go to Pattaya Walking Street, all you need to do is take a short ride on a songthaew.
