What are the Best Clubs in Phuket?
What are the best Night Clubs in Patong? 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 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 and out as you please. Discos near the centre of Bangla get packed earlier than others too, so if you are an early bird, better know where to start!

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 2,000 baht up if you want to be seated. The disco which seems to be popular on weekends is on the second floor above Soi Easy bars and consists of two large rooms. The first room has lots of young Thai girls having fun around central tables, while the dance floor itself is in the second room. There are many security guys in a disco; it’s almost intimidating. Don’t come before midnight, that when the fun 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 the 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.
Location: Beach Road (not far from Bangla Road)
Price: 200 baht, includes a drink
7. Tiger Disco
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 floors 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 Illuzion Club next door. Read more
