Ayutthaya Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Ayutthaya

While there’s not much to do in Ayutthaya at night, you can definitely tour the city after dark to get a different perspective on all the temple ruins. Spot-lit from the ground and contrasting with the pitch-black sky, the historical sites appear rather otherworldly – both beautiful and surreal.

Apart from night tours and river cruises, Ayutthaya offers little when it comes to nightlife. Drinking is more of a chilling out experience at a guest house than at a dance club or party house. Night markets offer a lineup of drink stalls, with local beers at best. For real nightlife action, you need to take a tuk-tuk outside the city to the area called Grand Market. Here is Ayutthaya’s red light district where you will find a number of karaoke pubs, beer bars with live rock music and bar girls who just refuse to leave you alone.

Cowboy Bar

A popular hangout place after dark, this cowboy-themed beer bar offers Thai food and local beers at a reasonable price. It sits in the Grand Market neighbourhood, Ayutthaya’s thriving red light district – a virtually ‘undiscovered’ area among foreign travellers. So, if you come here, expect to rub shoulders with the locals. Live band plays country, rock and Thai pop music every night.
 

  • Opening Hours: 17:00 – 02:00
  • Location: Grand Market, Rojana Road (near Ayutthaya Grand Hotel)

Moon Café

Moon Café’s bright-red façade and big hand-painted cursive signage are hard to miss. This laid-back establishment offers good live band music (after 22:00), of mostly western rock and Thai folk songs, and a range of Thai and western food at reasonable prices. Drinks include beers, spirits and cocktails. The clientele is mostly foreign travellers, backpackers and a few locals.

  • Opening Hours: 17:00 – midnight
  • Location: Naresuan Soi 2

Street Lamp Bar & Restaurant

Part of the guesthouse of the same name, this non-descript joint looks more like a house than a bar. It has a few wooden tables and parasols out front, with a pool table and bar inside the lobby area. Live solo music, mostly western rock and 60’s and 70’s tunes, begins every night from 20:00 to closing time.

  • Opening Hours: 07:00 – midnight

Wang Chan Kasem Night Market

Fronting the Pa Sak River and backed by Wang Chan Kasem Museum, the night market is an ideal place to enjoy a cheap meal with picturesque river views right in the middle of the local scene.

A lineup of food stalls occupy one side of the market, offering everything from ready-to-eat meals to grilled chicken and Halal food, while the other houses a handful of stalls selling clothing and fashion accessories.

  • Opening Hours: 17:00 – 23:00
  • Location: U-Thong Road, around Wang Chan Kasem Museum
