We all know ladies that like to get smashed without spending. Thankfully, Bangkok is the place to do just that. From free bubbly to beer to buckets of questionable house wine, we’ve got the lowdown on getting open without opening your wallet.
While we’re rounding up the city’s best, why not check out our list of the best late night eats in Asia’s City of Angels, the coolest theme cafes in the Big Mango as well as the top pizzas and biggest burgers.
Here are our choices for the best ladies nights in Bangkok:
The all-day, all-night ladies night:
This is a long-running classic and Coconuts top pick. The only ladies night to actually run all day and night, the lovely Witches Oyster Tavern on Ruamrudee Road in Ploenchit offers free red or white wine to all women on Wednesdays, from lunchtime until midnight. They don’t require a purchase but their Italian meets Mediterranean menu is difficult to resist. Their pizza is basically the perfect accompaniment to 100 glasses of wine.
They also feature a DJ spinning house and two indoor floors as well as a popular patio in front. Ask for Lek, the world-class server who will keep the wine flowing and the party going.
The classy downtown hotel bar:
Theo Mio, the Italian bistro and bar on the ground floor of the 5-star Intercontinental Hotel in Chidlom, offers free sparkling wine for ladies on Wednesdays from 5-7pm and is just steps from the BTS. This is the ladies night for classy Bangkok business broads who still plan to get home early so they can continue taking over the world on Thursday.
The long-standing lobby bar party:
Woobar, in the lobby of Sathorn’s W Hotel, is a stalwart on the ladies night scene. Their Friday night free-for-all must’ve been doing some damage to their substantial wallets because they changed their event to Thursdays, when good girls still keep themselves in check. Woobar offers free prosecco for ladies every Thursday from 7:30-9:30pm. As the event goes on, the DJ turns the music up and some loosened-up ladies always find themselves dancing.
Alert Your Boyfriend: This is the only bar in Bangkok (maybe in the world) the hosts a totally free men’s night on Thursdays featuring free flow for guys. Equality FTW!
BTS Chong Nonsi
The monthly high-elevation proper evening:
The ultra-luxe Banyan Tree hotel has just started a monthly ladies night at one of their three highly-elevated bars, Vertigo Too, on the 60th floor where lush loungers and stunning Bangkok views await. Dubbed “Queen B Girls Night Out,” it goes down the first Thursday of every month. The bar offers free flowing sparkling rosé from 8-10pm, a live band from 7-10pm, a DJ from 10pm-1am, and a lucky draw with prizes including free drinks at the hotel and a free stay at the hotel.
BTS Chong Nonsi
The long-standing sky-high night out:
CÉ LA VI is a long, sleek club on the 39th floor of the Sathorn Square building, which is attached to BTS Chong Nonsi station. While it’s pricey on a normal night, on Wednesdays they offer free flow sparkling wine for ladies from 9pm-midnight. This is also more of a standing club venue than a sit down bar and the DJ can be booming. There might be dancing if you have enough bubbles. Be warned: you may need to flash ID here and they won’t allow you in wearing flip-flops.
BTS Chong Nonsi
The hip cocktail stop:
The moody, unusual Phrom Pong club Sing Sing Theater offers a chance to sample their glamor for free on Thursday nights, when they offer three free cocktails to ladies before midnight. The club is modeled after 1930s Shanghai with red lanterns and balconies galore — perfect for seeing and being seen. They open at 9pm so you’ll get a full three hours to nab those gratis draanks.
Sukhumvit Soi 45
BTS Phrom Pong
The urban chill spot:
Roots, an urban garden and restaurant that somehow feels like you are no longer in the city while you’re right in the middle of it, offers four free drinks for ladies on Thursdays with the order of food. Nestled inside the K-Village complex in Phrom Phong, your free drinks can include selected cocktails or wine. The menu includes soul food, burgers, and pizza and always great music by top-notch DJs.
