One of the best things about Bangkok is most definitely ladies night. In a city that seems designed for the pleasure of men it’s great to have somewhere dedicated to honouring the fairer sex with free drinks and some cheesy music. Not that we are that easy to buy of course, but we appreciate the acknowledgement that is attached to Ladies Night. I’ve put together a list of my favourite ladies nights in Bangkok.
My Bar at Dusit Thani
My Bar at Dusit Thani is the queen of Bangkok ladies night. This is premium quality ladies night, with all you can drink between 19:00 and 21:00 every Wednesday. The drinks list is impressive: red and white wine, beer, gin, whisky and a handful of rather sweet cocktail served (sadly) in wine glasses. The DJ seems to have a thing for 90s pop, but he also plays some recent hits as well. My Bar can be found on the ground floor of the Dusit Thani towards the back of the hotel, past the pastry counter. They occasionally enforce their dress code, which is smart casual with no flip flops. The cost is 200 baht for two hours, and the money goes to Charity.MRT: Silom – BTS: Sala Daeng – Hotel is directly outside the MRT, if you haven’t been there before it has a huge gold spike on the roof!
On Wednesday head down to Coyote Silom on Soi Convent. Ladies night at Coyote runs from 18:00 to 20:00, and the classic margaritas are free. Friendly staff will keep your glasses topped up and if you need something to soak up all that booze we recommend getting a plate of Nachos to share. Coyote is pretty informal and relaxed, making it easy to lose track of time and how much you have had to drink.Silom Coyote, Soi Convent – BTS: Sala Daeng – MRT: Silom
Royal Oak, Bangkok
Only a few steps from the BTS at Phrom Pong you will find a row of British and Irish boozers. Every Wednesday from 20:00 till close (01:00) you can get free Vodka and Cokes, Chang Beer and Mojitos when the oldest pub in Bangkok holds its ladies night. The Royal Oak is usually filled with old men reading the newspaper and watching sports, but don’t let that put you off. It’s friendly and welcoming, and they do amazing desserts as well. The pub is easy to find, on soi 33/1, just past Robin Hood and The Dubliner.BTS: Phrom Pong
Every lady needs a rooftop moment and what could be better than looking down on one of Bangkok’s favourite party streets with a cocktail in your hand. Above Elven is a Central Park inspired rooftop bar and every Wednesday is Salsa night, with 150 baht Margaritas and Mojitos for women. You can see the Fraser Suites as you walk along soi 11, but you need to walk 10 minutes to the end of the street at go round the corner. The Above Eleven entrance is to the side of the building.BTS: Nana
Or perhaps the rooftop moment should be accompanied by a glass of ladies night bubbly? If so then Thursday night at Am Bar at Sheraton Hotel on Soi 15 is the place to be, with buy one get one free on Prosecco. This isn’t the highest rooftop in town, you’ll be looking up rather than down when you check out the skyscrapers. But the vibe is pretty chilled out, and there are some super comfy day beds to lounge around on.
On Wednesdays between 19:00 and 22:00 (until the 30th of June 2013) you can get free bubbles at Woo Bar at the W Bangkok. It’s easily one of the coolest hotel bars in Bangkok and they play some pretty funky music too.BTS: Chong Nonsi
