Bangkok has a reputation for a wild nightlife. There’s no need to dress up and entertainment is cheap and goes on around the clock. The main centers for evening entertainment are concentrated around Silom Road and Khao San Road. Hotels are often good centers for nightclubs and discotheques. Pubs and bars can be found all over the city, many specializing in live music.
