Gay Bars Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai has a number of gay bars centered around the Night Bazaar. Two epic bars compete for the title of best cabaret shows – 6ixcret Bar and Ram Bar. Each with shows 7 nights a week. Both bars are located in the Night Bazaar area and offer a fun but early night out. There are also a number of smaller bars that offer causal spots for beer and chats.

Later in the evening, open a handful of red-light bars, Adam’s Apple leading the way with a lighthearted red light show. There are no late-night gay dance clubs in Chiang Mai, most of the action closes down shortly after midnight.

After midnight there are no exclusive gay clubs. The mixed options are: SangDee – hip gallery/nightclub, the most LGBT popular option. Spicy and Las Vegas – which are filled with backpackers. Warm Up Café – popular with the locals and students.

Nights start early and sadly end early in Chiang Mai.

Most of the bars close from midnight and after midnight there are no exclusive gay clubs. The mixed clubs start to get busy from midnight with varying closing times depending on the club’s busyness. Most start to wind down from 2 am.

Your late night club options: SangDee – hip gallery/nightclub, the most LGBT popular option. Spicy and Las Vegas – which are filled with backpackers. Warm Up Café – popular with the locals and students.

Beer is big in Thailand the main local brands are Chang, Leo and Sighna. Red Bull’s roots are also in Thailand but note the original/local version is not carbonated (no fizz or bubbles).

For something stronger, the Thai classic has to be SangSom. Confusingly it’s often sold as “Thai whiskey” but is actually rum, distilled from sugarcane. SangSom is also the main component of Thailand’s notorious “buckets of alcohol.”
