Update on CM nightlife...

67 posts in this topic

Simple solution. If you're drinking on your own or with friends...  kick off at 4pm but put your watches 1 hour forward (if you still have one).

Early sunset around 6 is the nicest part of the day to drink and watch passing parade. When the sun goes down have a feed then kick on to wherever.

When you look at your watch showing 1am you will think you've had enough (remember you started drinking early) and head home seeing all the lights turning off and shutters coming down as you go.

The bonus is you'll get more sleep...  and a pleasant surprise when you wake up and see your watch is 1 hour fast...  an extra hours nap or down to the breakfast buffet EARLIER before the Chinese tour groups come down and cough in the food.

I have an old friend from my university days arriving on Wednesday, who will expect to be taken out on the town, i.e. 'girly bar' or something Any suggestions would most welcome, as I haven't a clue

When I want to go out I go to BKK. CNX seems super quiet and BKK was super busy when I went out last night. I think tourists have got the message.

<deleted> most places are super quiet compared to Bangkok.

 

I'm here 13 years it Chiang mai is still as fun as it t ever was, the only difference these days I'm home earlier. Zoe in yellow and  Kad Bon Yoo is a dump explore more, find some Chiang mai friends.

Oxide and T-Bar in Santitham for eye candy, Loi Kroh if you want to take a much, much less attractive woman to a short-time hotel room.  Make sure she's really a woman (unless you're into that sort of thing).

It's worth noting the thread is about CM nightlife, not small, dark, quiet places where people can quietly drink after-hours.  Nightlife requires light, music, pretties and a generally happy vibe.

 

Also worth noting that while Zoe may have gotten away with late closings on occasion, it's not a regular thing.  A little over two weeks ago everyone had to clear out at midnight.  But no doubt there are small, dark, quiet places where one can drink after hours and congratulate oneself on getting away with it.

Good post..."explore more."  Excellent advice.  First timers, use Lonely Planet to get your bearings, then pitch it...it is often out of date, and being Asia, things change rapidly....then maybe look at trip advisor...go exploring near some of the highly touted places and you may find a gold mine of beer promos and girls.  Nimman is a good place to just wander around...always fashionable to walk with an open container....the highest rent is going to be on the main roads, and thus the most touristy, priciest places..An empty bar is not a good sign, but if you are starting at 8....won't hurt to try...might be a good size group in there by 11 pm.  Things still don't get rolling until late, as it appears that most have not just started drinking two hours earlier to make up for early closing times.  And the heat plays into it, too.  Starts getting much more comfortable outside after 10 or 11...and will continue to be like that for at least the next two months.

Night golf at Stardome with the "refreshers" may add a little spice during and after a round.

I am a little afraid to ask, but what is "night golf at Stardome," and what are the "refreshers" ?

 

thanks, ~o:37;

Refreshers will clap and cheer when you almost make your 3 foot putt.

 

They have tons of make-up on their faces, braced teeth and stockings covering their legs.

 

And an IQ of 60.

I always take my friends to Pattaya or Bangkok for a few days after which they are ready to relax in a boring town.

Not that I can confirm personally but there may be other services in addition to handing you your niblick and pointing you in the direction of the hole. :shock1:

I am also afraid to ask but I will.  If you are playing golf at night how do you know where your balls are and how can you tell if you get a hole in one, or should that be the other way round?

  I don't understand these golfing terms!

I walked that place looking for the outdoor shop (across the parking lot in the archery store)....Some of the refreshers looked pretty good in passing.....Capable of recharging your battery....Seemed happy & obliging....

 

There's also a few massage places there, as well as some private & unlabeled areas.....

 

Betting the guys working on their golf game are indeed a happy bunch....

Last time I went to play golf in Chiang Mai, a complete stranger and totally unprovoked told me to tee off. I head butted him and have not played golf since.

I quite like Golf, buy only became really familiar when i moved to CM.

 

I developed similar  interests in Beer, Cake, Apple, Cream, Jam, Milk, and Cartoon.

 

Plenty of fun in CM for sure, but consistently regular and vibrant nightlife for younger (or even older) tourists is limited in venues and closing and holiday closures.

The solution is to start drinking early, get on it early by the time 24:00 comes along you'll have enough, besides there's lots of places around that still open until all hours

Yep, and nothing good happens after midnight anyway. My gran was right.
