The best Pool Parties in Bangkok
Summer is already here in Bangkok, the sun is blasting, it's hot, everybody's excited... That means one thing. It's time to go hard at Pool Party in Bangkok again !
Don’t get me wrong, Pool Parties in Bangkok go on all year long.
Every month, you have one somewhere. Usually we're lucky enough to get one every single weekend in Bangkok. (on Saturdays)
But what is the difference between them? Which one should you go to? Which one is the best? Here are my 3 favorite Pool Party in Bangkok.
Beats by the Pool at W Bangkok
Even though the W Pool Party have been around for a while, it was mostly only during Songkran festival.
But in September 2018 they started doing monthly pool parties again, and they've been killing it.
They've teamed up with Bangkok Invaders, the Hip Hop Dj crew from Bangkok that have some of the hottest parties everywhere in Bangkok.
Needless to say, it became in only a few months, the best pool party in Bangkok.
Cool venue, awesome music, plenty of space, Hip Hop music, great crowd... and "cheap" bottles.
Make sure you got check it out !
Westin Pool Party at Westin Grande Sukhumvit
Great party, great management and always packed.
I had to say “great management” when talking about the Westin or my friend Nicole would have kill me. (check her blog and what she has to say about the Westin Pool Party)
Still, over the years it became one of the biggest event in Bangkok. Great music, good crowd... they definitely live up to the hype.
Packed with models like the So Sofitel Pool Party and now a lot of new partnerships with clubs, bars... every event is getting better than the previous one.
Regarding the music, only one stage here, covering all sort of styles with a few DJs. From EDM to Electro and Deep House.
The only thing is the pool area that is a bit smaller than other pool parties.
So get there super early to have a table and make a booking if you want a place to sit. Or stay up and dance all night! Up to you
So Pool Party at Sofitel So
The third be not least. So Pool Party have by far the best view and arguably the most beautiful people.
To be honest, if there's one that you must attend while you’re in Bangkok, So Sofitel Pool Party should definitely be the number one on your list.
The pool is located on the 7th floor with a view over the famous Lumpini Park. It's simply unbeatable.
You got 2 areas with 2 different kind of music. EDM and electro next to the pool and Hip-Hop/R&B on the other side of the building. 😁🎉
It's also arguably the most popular pool party in Bangkok as they've been around forever. So it's always packed !
The only down side is the Pool area that is quite small (not the infinity pool) and the price is getting quite high.
So if you want a table, go there early or book in advance.
It’s probably one of the most expensive too though. Entrance is 600THB with 1 drink, but it’s definitely worth it !
Tips for Pool Party in Bangkok
Never been to a pool party in Bangkok ? Then here's a few tips for you :
Most of them have good deals on bottles and are usually a bit cheaper than regular clubs.
So take advantage of that !
And when it gets crowded you’ll be happy to get a table and somewhere you can put your drink, trust me.
Get a Locker
Been there, done it, it’s definitely a must. But they’re often limited so you better come early.
They also cost around 200 THB + a deposit, so make sure you bring enough cash.
But as most of those parties are packed it’s a nightmare to keep an eye on your change or your bag while you're getting fucked up.
So play it safe. Put your dry clothes and all your valuable in the locker and only keep your phone and you cash or credit card with you.
Models and Gym Addicts at Pool Parties
Most of the Pool Party in Bangkok invite models, so don’t be surprised by all this beautiful girls and guys going around. You’ll get used to it. 😅
And of course it’s a pool party so some people are here to show off.
After all, when you’ve been sweating your ass off all week at the gym, I understand that you want to show off a bit. Make sense.
But don’t be impressed, its still Bangkok, not Ibiza or Miami. People are a lot more relaxed here and the vibe is great, its not a "who's got the best body/spend the most" kind of parties. (ok maybe a bit)
In Short, what you should remember before a Pool Party in Bangkok
- Go there early to get a table and a locker (and often a free drink or open bar for 1 hour)
- Bing cash! Don’t be cheap, if you have to do it, go all in!
- Workout! You don't want to be the fattest guy there
