Nana Adult Entertainment Plaza on Sukhumvit Soi 4, commonly known as ‘Nana Plaza’, is now probably Bangkok’s most famous collection of ‘go go’ bars. But if you’re wondering whether you should stay in a hotel near Nana Plaza , then read on…
Nana Plaza has to be seen to be believed. But be warned, the experience is not for the faint-hearted. With 3 floors of adult entertainment and beer bars, Nana Plaza is a must-see tourist attraction of Bangkok and one could spend a lot of time here. Despite a recent moral crackdown on Bangkok’s red-light areas, Nana Plaza recently renewed its lease and remains fully in business with most of its bars closing at 2am and some as late as 3am every night.
If you’re looking for hotels near Nana Plaza, you’ll want to be aware of a few things:
Nana is late and loud
Sukhumvit Soi 4, also known as Soi Nana, has many bars and clubs, some of which close very late. This can be great for nightlife, but you may not want to stay in a hotel that is very close to the bars which play loud music. Lohas Residences is just a few minutes’ walk down Soi 4, situated between Soi 4 and Soi 2. So you are close to all the bars and Nana Plaza, but not too close to be able to sleep at night.
Ladyboy bars vs other bars
Note that many of the bars in Nana Plaza have ladyboys, but this is not always obvious. The most famous ladyboy bars of Nana Plaza are Casanova and Obsessions, while the most popular bars with only ladies are Spanky’s and Billboard.
Closing times are not strict
Although many bars in the Nana area close at 2am (with some bars closing at 3am), these times are not strict. It can be the case that bars need to close early on occasion.
The BTS closes at midnight
Although the BTS Skytrain provides cheap and convenient travel to other areas, it closes at midnight. So, if you wish to stay near Nana Plaza, you might not want to stay a BTS ride away as taxis get more expensive at night due to taxi touts. Our hotel is perfectly located near Nana Plaza, but not too close for comfort. Just contact us if you need any more information.
