How Are The Nightclubs in Phuket?
The nightclubs in Phuket are some of the best in all of Thailand, and most of the places are usually packed, even on weeknights.
So you can always expect a good clubbing experience, and with some amazing sound systems.
Most of the Patong nightclubs are situated in and around the Bangla road area, which has the highest concentration of nightlife activities, restaurants, and bars.
One of the great things to do is go club hopping in this area and just check out most of the venues. Especially if you want a nice change from the beer bars in Patong. Generally, if you plan to be in and around Soi Bangla for most of your stay, then it may be wise to stay at the popular hotels in this area of Phuket.
And keep in mind that on any given night one nightclub might be more “fun” than the other. Its just the way it is, certain venues will be better, so you will never know until you check out a few of them and make up your mind which one to party the night away.
In any case, here are the most popular nightclubs worth going to in Patong.
This place is very popular, and its HUGE.
It will be easy to spot this since there is a giant Tiger decor popping out of the building. On the lower level is a bunch of small go go bars, which is also fun.
But the main event is the nightclub on the upper levels. That is where you will find the DJ cranking out some impressive clubbing music, and the hoards of party-goers enjoying the experience.
Another reason this club is so popular among foreigners is that it attracts lots of local Thai women who come party here.

Red Hot Club
Red Hot Club is one of the most popular clubs in the Patong area. It’s hard to not to notice this place since the big red sign stands out, almost begging you to come in and take a look.
And it doesn’t disappoint. The club attracts lots of tourists, and plenty of locals who are craving a great venue to listen to a live band. The only thing that could be improved is that fact that there is no real dance floor area.
It is more like a traditional Thai nightclub with mostly small tables and stools. But other than that it is a great place to check out, even if just grab a couple drinks and start off your club hopping on Soi Bangla.

Located on Rat-U-Tit Road, the Tai Pan Nightclub has a nice mixed crowd at the beginning of the night. Later on, and especially after 3 AM you will find many western males and lots of freelancers around.
As with many establishments in this area, it will be hard to not see the huge billboard style neon lights. It can be enticing, and always an option to party the night away. The club has everything you need for a great time, beautiful coyote dancers, a dance floor, and a nice intimate atmosphere — it gets busy on most nights.

Hollywood is back in action is surely another option for you to check out if you want to party the night away.
Although not one of my personal favorites, it is still worth checking out.
It can be a “hit or miss” type of place. Some nights I have had an amazing time, and other nights it was just average.
The DJ’s typically play amazing EDM and house tracks. The venue also has a decent light show, and the over-all vibe is pretty good.
