In Short

Drink the night away, join the rave, play bar games, and dance to great music at this lit entertainment hub. A street stretching for 100 meters, at a distance of 250 meters from the sea, Soi RCA, although a smaller version of the sois off of Bangla Road, lacks the in-your-face raunchiness of the latter.

What’s So Awesome About It

The neon lit entertainment area called Soi RCA has as many as 12 different bar places for you to pick from. Some attributes common to these bars are the sprightly colors, the neon lights and the oh-so charming hostesses. Drinks are reasonably priced and board games, fun and idiot-proofed.

This place is frequented by locals alike, so expect to find yourself chatting them up and drinking the night away. And if you do not wish to mingle with the crowd, you can enjoy your time watching the sport of your choice on large LED screens that are a regular feature in any of these bars. Most bars give away beers for 80 bahts and fruit daiquiris for100 bahts.

What’s The Catch

Almost all bars cater to single men, and women and couples may feel out of place at these venues. It is not suitable for families with children. The bars are individually quite small, so it gets crowded, especially during weekends. For the traveler that’s cleaned up rather well and has no intent to go look for the ladies of the night, steer clear of the bar charmers that can be a little too persistent.
