Update on CM nightlife...

67 posts in this topic

As a side there has been some significant work been done on StarSux over the last few weeks and still going on in the day time.   Lots of construction type stuff, and the front of the whole building looks completely different now..  Perhaps it might be moving up from last place where it has languished for a decade or more.
 
Bit of a worry bods running round in bars/clubs/restaurants/ toilets with cameras though filming bar girls, punters, and diners?.....but no shot of author.......it aint gonna stop I suppopse.

don't understand your entire second paragraph. get some sleep

Seems like you can't figure out what you want. In previous post you complained about Pattaya  and said you would never go there again  but now you are saying Chiang Mai is too dull. Thats what  TV posters were telling you unless your a retiree or have family. Your visiting friends may will consider it boring and you seem to be living a dull life if having been living there for some time don't know where to go for fun. Here's some suggestions

Only checked the top one, which is badly out of date.  It recommended Monkey Club, which was torn down two or more years ago.  It also talked of after hours places that are currently locked up tight after hours.  And it showed a crowd at Infinity, the last couple of times I went by Infinity the staff out-numbered the customers.  I assume the video was made before the 2014 coup and nightlife crackdown.

Anyone who thinks everything closes at midnight isn't looking hard enough. Plenty of places open now late, has been the case for the last 6-9 months. Was at Infinity until 3am a couple of months back.

 

The only places that close at midnight are on main streets, and even then only in high profile areas. The road behind Chang Klan Road (Night Bazaar) that crosses Loi Kroh has plenty of bars that open late, even the dubious Loi Kroh boxing ring has places that trade through to 1:30-2am. Some places do put the shutters down though so it's a matter of being there at midnight and staying there or knowing where the side entrance is. Thai focused places don't even bother with that, was at a place in Hang Dong about 9mths ago, was still open at 2am when I left.

Yes, I do not like Pattaya after visiting and Yes, Chiang Mai was boring the last time I went out... (a year ago). Now I have a friend coming and I am therefore asking about the Night Life situation in Chiang Mai. 

 

Regarding you saying I am personally living a dull life.... Well, first of all, I do not consider living a NORMAL life (without having to party or sit in a bar every day/weekend) a boring life.

 

Besides that, I visit Bangkok 1-2 times every month for business and could go out there as much as I wanted....that is IF I wanted. However, I actually seldom go out when there, because I have tried enough partying for several life times, before I met my wife. I actually find it extremely boring sitting in e.g. a GOGO or some bar talking to some bargirl... but I am sure my friend will enjoy the experience. And that is why I asked about an update of the Night life in CM.

 

Anyway, thanks for the suggestion videos :-)

You can try Living Room - a bar that is open till 5 ish and has pool tables. It is tucked away in a side street, but the tuk tuk guys know where it is.

Also, if it is still on the go, Zoe in Yellow is a group of bars not far from Loykroh Road, frequented by Aussie backpackers and open late.

Zoe was closing down at 2400, last I saw, about a month ago.  Best thing about Zoe is it gives those types of people a place to go, and they won't be in places I would consider.

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

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.

You're correct, the local government in Chiang Mai have systematically destroyed the 'late night' nightlife environment quite deliberately over the pst few years.

 

Why ? I have no idea.

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.

<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).
