There’s a live band playing until midnight and that’s about the time Banana starts to get super busy.
If you only had one night in Patong and look for a place to party after some bar hopping then you might not want to miss Tiger Live Band – the biggest, loudest, busiest and most sophisticated night club in Phuket.
You simply can’t miss this huge 5,000 sqm complex near the eastern end of Bangla Road that has dozens of open kind of beer bars with girls dancing like in the Go Go Bars on the first floor and the actual night club is located on the second floor.
There has been a lot of money invested in the design and décor of this club and so you’ll find huge statues of tigers, snakes and other animals among the most modern equipment you can imagine, a very impressive laser show and renowned international DJ’s.
It’s not just the high quantity of clubs in the Bangla Road area but here are also the best ones since this is the big nightlife magnet and attracts most of the tourists, expats and local Thais every single night.
As wide the variety of the nightclubs on Patong beach is and each trying to offer a unique design and setup – the main concept is the same at most places: Ladies go in for free and are often even given free drinks and then men get attracted but pay a minor entrance fee of 200 or 300 Baht which includes one free drink.
Patong Beach has the widest range of nightlife options in all Phuket and of course it’s no different with nightclubs.
Just by walking from Beach Road (called Thawewong Rd) along the bustling nightlife strip of Bangla Road all the way through to Rat-U-Tit Road you will pass about 80% of all nightclubs in Patong (and like 60% of all nightclubs on Phuket Island).
The dating scene is exactly as it would be in the UK. But when I do find good girls in Thailand, there are distinct differences in cultural values which I’ve learned to take into account.So it’s more a psychological thing to make the guys stay and don’t leave after their first drink as they already paid the entrance fee.
