Phuket Best Clubs
What are the best Nightclubs in Phuket? If you are ready to party until late, here are the best clubs and discos in Patong Beach to dance way beyond the official 2 am closing time. You’ll have to choose between the seven nightclubs and discos really worth mentioning but you also can find smaller places here and there. Good thing: several of them are not far from each other just around Bangla Road, some are free to enter, others will stamp your hand so you can freely go in an out as you please. Discos near the center of Bangla get packed earlier than others too, so if you are an early bird, better know where to start!
Illuzion Phuket is an increasingly popular Nightclub on Bangla road, Patong Beach, built where an old shopping mall used to be and right opposite of the other massive Seduction Club. Built on 2 floors, Illusion is gigantic, supposedly able to accommodate up to 5,000 standing people plus hundreds of VIP tables. The music and atmosphere grab you as soon as you step inside and the quality of the sound and light system it instantly obvious. Read more…

The new and popular Seduction Club has moved from its previous tiny street to a prime location right on Bangla Road, it’s impossible to miss it. Hugely popular with international DJs and an amazing sound system, this club gets busy earlier than others, but the real party starts after midnight to really kick in after 2 am. Once you got your hand stamped, you can go in and out as you please and come back anytime to take your party where you left it. Lots of young tourists, pulsing ambiance and really well designed. If you like mega parties, this is your place!Seduction also features 3 other clubs on the upper floors: The exclusive ‘Blow’ a VIP club for the beautiful people like me is packed and fun until very late!

4. Tai Pan Club
One of the oldest venues in Patong Beach, Tai Pan went through many different phases before reaching the success it enjoys today. Packed every night without being pushy to patrons, Tai Pan is old an school club and people seem to love it. Great sound, good lighting and great atmosphere and best of all, no entry fee!
☆ At the intersection of Bangla Road and Rat U Thit road, you can’t miss the triangular front
☼ Entrance is free but try to pick up one of the vouchers they hand over in the nearby streets, it gives you a free shooter when buying a drink!

5. Hollywood Disco
Hollywood on Soi Easy off Bangla Road, is entrance free and drinks are around 300 baht, but you’ll have to book your tables around the dance floor, from 2000 baht up if you want to be seated. The disco which seems to be popular on week ends is on the second floor above Soi Easy bars and is divided in two large rooms. First room has lots of young Thai girls having fun around central tables, while the dance floor itself is in the second room. I have never seen so many security guys in a disco, it’s kind of intimidating. Don’t come before midnight, that when the fun really starts.
6. Banana Disco
Banana Disco, located on the beach road not really far from Bangla Road, is one of the two oldest clubs in Patong. It was already here in1994 when I arrived. It only starts to get busy enough to be interesting past eleven with a good mix of young Thais and tourists, so don’t come too early to this one or you might feel lonely. Sound system and light effect are good and dance floor is quite large. Price is 200 baht but includes a drink and once you’ve got your hand ‘stamped’, you can leave and come back anytime.
Replacing the sadly defunct ‘Old Tiger Disco’ on Bangla Road, the ‘New Tiger Disco’ is a huge but rather empty cave located on the top floor of a three storey entertainment complex resembling a humongous and psychedelic Flinstone’s cave. Despite the similarity with the burnt down ‘Old Tiger Disco’ the success is not there, stolen by the hugely popular Seduction Club next door. Read more…
