Demo, Thonglor, Bangkok
Demo Review - What to Expect
Demo Bangkok is situated in the heart of the trendy, vibrant Thong Lor Soi 10 and you might be forgiven for mistaking this super-cool Bangkok nightclub and bar for a warehouse when you first arrive! Don't be mistaken though, this is where the Bangkok's wealthy, young elite come to play.
One of the coolest and trendiest night spots in Bangkok, Demo share's space with the more mainstream Funky Villa next door and customers of the two venues are allowed to move freely between the two.
Decorated in an ultra modern, industrial chic style with it's bare brick walls covered in graffiti, exposed piping and metal shutters instead of doors, a night at Demo Bangkok doesn't come cheap. Think beers from 220 baht, cocktails from 250 baht and if you're planning on buying a top shelf bottle then you won't being seeing much change from 2,000 baht.
The club has three areas, a large outdoor area which is perfect for socialising and catching up with friends, the bar zone called “Dirty Bar” which has its own DJs playing Hip Hop, R&B and Heavy Bass music and the main club area which is darker, more demure and pumps out house, techno-house and even more niche music genres like dubstep and hardbeat.
While Demo Bangkok isn't cheap, there is no cover charge and, as mentioned you can move freely between Demo and Funky Villa next door which attracts a more mainstream crowd with their more eclectic music which includes popular chart music and R&B tunes.
If you are looking to head over to Demo for a night out using the BTS then the nearest BTS station is Thong Lor but you will also need a taxi from the station as it's about a 20 minute walk. It's probably best to head for Funky Villa as their sign is easier to see from the road and Demo is next door, set back from the road a little. Also, be sure to take some ID with you as the security staff at Demo are known to ask for it, irrelevant of how old you look!
In summary then, if you are looking for a “hi-so” night out with Bangkok's elite party crowd then Demo Bangkok is for you. They have a great choice of beers, spirits and signature cocktails available, regular party nights featuring local and international DJs and attract Bangkok's young, wealthy, party crowd who like their music hard and their nights out to go on until the early hours of the morning.
