The Nana Plaza had a bit of a bad rep over the years.
But, if you go to the world-famous adult entertainment plaza with an open mind, the chances are that you will have a lot of fun.
Let us guide you through Bangkok’s most iconic and popular red-light district.
What Is Nana Plaza?
Nana Plaza is one of Bangkok’s most famous red-light districts, an adult playground that is the go-to getaway for guys looking to hang out with Thailand’s most beautiful girls.
Nana Plaza is an old shopping mall turned into the best place for adult entertainment in Bangkok.
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 an “adult playground”, the least we can say is that Nana Plaza is an intriguing place.
It is also a great warm-up for bachelor parties or even just somewhere you chill out on your own after work.
There are a lot of bars to explore.
Around 30, to be exact, spread across three levels.
It would be a bit of a challenge to visit them all, although nothing is impossible in Bangkok.
What Happens At Nana Plaza?
There are different options to spend an evening at Nana Plaza.
Each place in the plaza has a different style, music, and types of shows to enjoy.
You can start the night sitting outdoors and having a beer at one of the ground-floor beer bars, observing the night’s events.
Later, you can visit a small gogo bar and watch a nude dancer on stage while enjoying a drink and sitting with a topless Thai woman on your lap.
For a change of pace, you might want to visit a ladyboy bar to learn more about why Thai ladyboys are so popular.
Finally, you can go to the second or third floor to find the best bars and watch some of the sexiest shows in Bangkok.
With so many options, Nana Plaza is a place to experience the true meaning of the phrase “One Night in Bangkok and the World’s Your Oyster.”
Whatever gogo bar you enter, you are going to feel like a celebrity as soon as you walk in.
Grab a seat, invite a girl to join you, and buy her a lady drink.
After being asked what your name is, where you are from, and what football team you support, you can opt to pay a bar fine to take out the girl.
Before you head to Nana Bangkok, make sure to read our guide to Thai gogo bars for first-timers.
On the ground floor of Nana Plaza is Lollipop.
There is a T-shaped elevated dance floor that holds around 16 dancers.
There is no gimmick here.
Just a casual gogo bar where you can relax.
You won’t feel pressured for lady drinks.
Though bar girls are very down-to-earth so they might be hard to resist.
Located on the middle floor, this is the right bar if you have been a bad boy.
Expect to get continuously spanked by foam tubing.
There are around 20 naughty dancers with sexy moves.
You’ll love the erotic shows too.
Somewhere over the rainbow is a magical place full of beautiful ladies.
Located on the middle floor next to Twister Bar, Rainbow 5 is a popular hotspot among Japanese visitors.
There is a long narrow dance floor enough for 20 dancers to show their best moves.
There are 3 other rainbow bars to choose from, but Rainbow 5 is the best.
Located on the top floor, Billboard has a giant Jacuzzi inside with playful pussycats included.
What more could you want?
It’s also consistently voted the best gogo bar in Bangkok and, with good reason, loads of girls and loads of fun.
Just try not to get wet!
Angelwitch is one of the most creative bars in the city.
This is a must because of their erotic performances, including everything from solo burlesque acts to lesbian acts with 2 girls and sensual shows with up to 5 women going fully nude.
Nana Plaza Prices
Nana Plaza offers an excellent value for money whether it’s for drinks or for girls.
Here’s an example of the alcohol and lady prices at most of the bars:
- Import Beer: 180 THB
- Hard Liquor: 250 THB
- Lady Drinks: 200 THB
- Bar Fines: 1,000+ THB
The bar fine lets the girl leave her job early and can range from 1,000 to 3,000 THB depending on the bar and girl.
If she somehow ends up at your place, she might request money for a “taxi” home, which could be another 300 to 600 THB.
Of course, many bars on the ground floor offer happy hour promotions before 8 PM, so come early to take advantage of all these deals.
Beer Bars on Sukhumvit Soi 4
Outside of Nana Plaza is Sukhumvit Soi 4, which is probably the second most touristy spot in Bangkok after Khaosan road.
But that doesn’t make it any less of a place to check out.
