Nick Supreda, Blaq Lyte

“I really like T-Rex for after-hours because it opens till late. The vibe is chill and fun at the same time. I even go there sometimes when I can’t sleep late at night, just get up and head out there for a few nightcaps. Plus it's always entertaining to watch a bunch of drunk people hanging out together all in one room."

“I go to two places, one is Backstage; every time I’m there I always end up losing at drinking game and blackout. Another is Rabbit Hole, Chacha [Suwincha Singsuwanthe, head bartender] always makes me drink so much that I also end up blacking out, too.”
Rabbit Hole

Coran Maloney, Kolour

“The best place that is not a condo-after-party would be Mustache when it’s open super-late. There have been a few sunrise moments that reminded me of my favourite club, Revolver, in Melbourne.”

Sean Carter aka UNDA, Khai Dao

“I go Penta on Ekkamai or MaRumBa behind W District, because hip-hop and R&B all night, that’s why!”

"We love GlowMustache and T-Rex. The vibes are underground and the feeling is more intimate, full of familiar faces. The music is always good, compared to other commercial clubs along Sukhumvit."

James Gilbody, Phatfunk


“Best place to be locked in after hours is Smalls with David. Some of my favorite nights have been in there with his drink recommendations, stories and a good group of people to enjoy it with.”
