Nana Plaza has been an icon representing naughty Bangkok’s nightlife scene for decades. It is conveniently located on Sukhumvit Soi 4 and unlike anything else you’ve ever seen.
If you’re new to Bangkok and don’t know where to start, the Bangkok Nightlife editorial team is here to help.
We’ve been to each bar more than few times and have summarized our findings below:
What Happens at Nana Plaza?
Nana Plaza has always been about sexual “entertainment.”
As you approach this “entertainment” complex, a giant neon sign with the words “The World’s Largest Adult Playground” glows. Whether or not it’s really is an “adult playground”, so to say the least, Nana Plaza is an intriguing place.
And without a doubt, Nana Plaza is one of Thailand’s most famous redlight districts. The building’s U-shaped design resembles an outdoor mall. Nana Plaza has 30 bars scattered over 3 floors, in total, employing 500+ thai girls and ladyboys.
Well, this “shopping mall” certainly has something for everyone, no matter what gets your blood pumping.
There are a variety of bars with Hot Thai girls to choose from. And if you prefer something different, there are bars with members of the 3rd sex.
Each venue has a unique mix of entertainers, music, and erotic shows.
To start off the night, we recommend you sit outdoors and enjoy a beer at one of the beer bars on the ground floor, quietly watching the night develop in living color.
Later, you can then slip into one of the small gogo bars and order a stiff drink, watching a stunning nude lady dance on stage with an 18-year-old topless thai babe sitting on your lap. What an excellent way to warm up!
For a change of pace, you might want to check out a ladybody bar next, just to better understand why Thai ladyboys are so famous worldwide!
And after that, you meander to the 2nd or 3rd floor will you will find the best bars, and sit down to take in some sexiest shows in Bangkok.
With so many bars, girls, and shows, Nana Plaza is really a place to discover the true meaning of Murry Head’s verse: “One Night in Bangkok and the Worlds Your Oyster.”

The overall standard of the ladies, venues, and performances has improved significantly over the last 5 years.
As of March 2021, there were 25+ gogo bars, each with around a dozen thai gogo dancers, spanning three different levels of pleasure.

The Rainbow mafia owns several clubs at Nana Plaza and has strong connections strong with the Thai police. Their clubs are famous for having the hottest girls on stage, so all Rainbow clubs are famous, especially with the Japanese community.
