  • Shock 39
    Shock 39 | Bangkok

The buzz: Tucked inside the nightlife strip of Petchburi Soi 39, the city’s latest bar boasts “very late” opening hours as well as the best sound system in this hemisphere.

The décor: While the name reminds us of a certain ghost-themed radio station, Shock 39 actually has a sleek, spacey décor with glowing purple lights in all its nooks and crannies. Walk through the all-white minimalist entrance and see the purple theme continue through to a massive room, complete with a raised DJ booth and a bar. Taking the center is a reflective catwalk-like dance floor designed especially for the uninhibited. A bit of privacy can also be had in the two VIP areas.

The music: They play it all—from house and trance to hip hop and minimal tech, the latter provided by DJ Montonn “Jay” Jira, who is set to be one of the regular turntablists.

The crowd: An already liquored-up, mixed crowd from the nearby Nana and Sukhumvit Soi 11.

The price: Cocktails start from B150. It’s B300 (2 drinks) to get in, and ladies get in for free between 9pm-midnight.

Why you’ll come back: Of all the after-hour venues around, this is probably the most decent to date—despite the next-door massage parlor.
