Gay Clubs, Discos, Karaoke Bars and late night venues

Chiang Mai Gay Discos and Gay Karaoke

G-Star Vintage - Chiang Mai's best gay club

The real gay scene in Chiang Mai is found away from the foreigner orientated commercial tourist venues familiar to many visitors and ex-pats. The local Thai scene revolves around the big Thai Style gay clubs and karaoke bars and does not get started until after midnight. By far the largest and most popular venue is G-Star Vintage, the best Chiang Mai Disco and Club with live music, entertainment, ladyboys and a coyote boy show with some stunning Thai guys strutting their stuff on stage. If you are interested in meeting genuine younger Thai gays this is the place you will find them, but discretion is required, most of the guys here are not money boys and improper propositions may land you in trouble.

Another popular venue in a similar vain to G-Star is See Man Pub in the Nimmanaheminda area, which re-opened in March 2014 after refurbishment following a fire. As well as the main gay clubs, many of Chiangmai’s other clubs in this part of town have a very mixed clientele and are quite gay friendly. We have listed a few below

Thai Style

What do we mean by “Thai Style”? Typically the large clubs and bars follow a similar format – loud and dark. There is no dance floor as such and everyone stands (or dances/sways to the music :) ) around tall tables with no chairs or stools. It is normal to go to these places with a group of friends rather than alone. Drinks are mainly whiskey or other spirits bought as a bottle. Thai’s often bring their own whiskey; these clubs make their money selling mixers and ice at much higher prices than a normal bar. Small beers are usually available, some places may offer a few mixed drinks or cocktails but usually not what foreigners would call a full service bar.

Gay Karaoke Bars

For very late night entertainment in Chiang Mai head to the Gay Karaoke bars of which there are several. These venues are usually open until dawn, have a large staff of young male waiters, most of whom are available to go home with you, and regular drinks prices. The better bars are packed at weekends and are often great fun as everyone joins in with the signing and high spirits. Some can also get quite raunchy with some cabaret too. For most Thai people they represent a much better alternative to in your face go-go bars, with their highly inflated drink prices. Some Karaoke bars also have food available and VIP rooms where you can go and enjoy with your friends and some of the waiters in private.

As for anywhere in Thailand the late night scene is underground. These places change all the time and can be dangerous if you are alone so we are only listing a couple of them here. For the latest news on the best nightspots in town ask at the other bars, or ask some of the locals and get them to take you.
