PHUKET Gay Bars & Clubs 2021

Much of Patong becomes one big nightclub after dark, buzzing with the energy of the bars and dancing in the streets, as well as atop the bars. Most gay action is to be found around Paradise Complex, with a score of gay bars and clubs, several gay guesthouses, cafes, coffeehouses and other services.


The streets along the Paradise Complex fill up with guys eager to show you what will happen later on inside the bars!

Zag Bar Phuket

Zag Club is probably the most popular bar at the moment in Phuket, with great shows nightly!

Our guide to gay bars in Phuket.

If you are looking to party hard on Gay Phuket then we recommend staying in Patong. Zag Bar and Boat Bar are the most popular bar and dance clubs in the Paradise Complex attracting both tourists and locals alike.

Boat Bar was recently refurbished which has made the bar feel much more contemporary, the new lighting and sound systems create a cool vibe.

Club One Seven/ Home Dining Café & Lounge is a popular  restaurant and bar at gay guesthouse serving breakfast from 8am, lunch and dinner. They offer inexpensive Thai and Western food, coffee/tea, ice cream, cocktails. Connect Bar & Restaurant describes itself as a gay “living room” style bar and restaurant with buffet special nights.

My Way is a popular gay go-go dance bar with nightly ladyboy shows.  One of the oldest establishments in the Paradise Complex, My Way brought the cabaret entertainment of Bangkok’s gay scene to Phuket with three great shows every night. It is also a high-quality go-go bar. The outside terrace is a good place to enjoy a few drinks and cool down between shows, as well as helping to make it one of the more popular venues in the area, attracting a mixed crowd.

Yes! Bar is popular with hot gogo shows and cabaret. Sundowners is a large complex consisting of a guesthouse and bistro on one side of the road and a two-storey bar on the other.. The upper floor has a terrace – making it a great people-watching perch.

OK karaoke and beer bar, it is particularly popular with Asian visitors and locals, though they welcome any visitors who want to try their hand at some singing. As with most karaoke places, it has a friendly and light-hearted atmosphere and is a good place to hang out with friends and meet new people.

Phuket has one of the most developed gay cruising scenes in the world. The southern end of Nai Harn Beach, King Rama IX Park, and Ocean Shopping Centre are the most popular outdoor gay cruising spots.

Aquarius Sauna & TARA Sauna are the two main gay saunas of Phuket. Aquarius is located in Paradise Complex in Patong and caters mainly to tourists. The other, Tara sauna is in Phuket town and serves mainly a local crowd.

Attitudes towards “gay-for-pay” and escorts is much more relaxed in Phuket. Many of the “hosts” in the bar are working boys. If you strike up a conversation, be aware that you will be expected to tip for their time and/or buy a drink. If you are looking for something more, be specific to avoid confusion later on (many of the guys are gay-for-pay) and agree on your price up front. Finally, don’t just assume that all the boys are available to hire. Hosting is a legitimate way for guys to earn money on the island, so please be respectful.

Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action

Orchid Resortel,    Lub d Hotel,    R-Mar Resort and Spa,    Diamond Cliff Resort & Spa.

  • When to go out?

    Most of Phuket’s Gay Bars don’t get busy until 10pm-11pm while the gay clubs get busy after midnight.  The terraces fill up first before the crowds move indoors towards the dance floors. Most bars compete for punters by putting on taster drag/dance performances on the street, so go with whoever impresses you the most!

  • Where to Stay

    If you want to be close to the gay bars and clubs, consider Patong. Note, the closer you are to the Paradise Complex, the more noisy your hotel room is likely to be! Those seeking a more resort-like stay, close to the bars should consider nearby Kata Beach and Karon
