Nana and Nana Plaza

Sukhumvit soi 4 is often referred as soi Nana. A few minutes walk from the BTS station of the same name, you can spot the madness and the flow of people start as you enter the street. It's packed, with girls and ladyboys both on the sidewalk and in the bars along the road with street food blocking the traffic.

But the real deal is inside Nana Plaza, happy to claim to be "The Worlds Largest Adult Playground", with 3 stories of Bars, Gogo Bars, Ladyboys Den, BJ Bars... and more. If you've never been there, you might want to give it a try, it's worth a shot and if you feel stressed, stop by one of the BJ Bar.

Bars we recommend in Nana :

Most of the bars in the street close at 2am and Nana Plaza shut slowly between 2 and 3. For after party you can go to Hillary II, down the road, they have Live music and they're open til a bit later. Or you can hop on a Free Taxi to get a few drinks at Mixx or Insanity (both Clubs will pay for the taxi ride).
