Pattaya Second Road is a long road that stretches the full length of Pattaya Bay; along it there are venues of all sorts for all occasions. Nightspots are strewn along it at various points and there are lots of connecting sois that are worth a visit. If you are looking for somewhere romantic to take your lady, or if you are looking to meet someone new, or if you just want to enjoy a nice quiet beer by yourself, you have lots of quality Pattaya nightlife venues to choose from on Second Road.
If you want to find the best places, you do need to know where to look. If you don't know where you are going, it's very easy to wander straight past some of the best venues without ever realising that they are there.
Second Road is about 3km long and runs parallel to
Beach Road. Behind it is Soi Buakhao and behind that is Pattaya 3rd Road. Along with Beach Road, it is the other main artery in
Pattaya that runs to, or close to, all the best nightlife locations.
Unlike Beach Road, you can have a full night of quality entertainment
here without wanting to go anywhere else.
If you are intending to make a new acquaintance for
the night, you do have some options available to you. There are lots of
beer-bar complexes strewn all over Pattaya 2nd Road. In the north there
are lots of bars near to Soi 1 and Soi 2. The entrance to Drinking
Street in the north has lots of bars to choose from where you might make
a new friend or two. There are more beer bar complexes near to Central
Pattaya Road, Soi 10 and Soi 11 amongst others.
The vast number of Pattaya nightlife venues will give you plenty of opportunities to meet girls. But, if you prefer a more intimate way of meeting ladies, you might be interested in online dating.
My Recommended Thai dating site is full of ladies looking for both short term fun and something more serious.
A-Go-Go bars are a bit of a rarity on this road, but you might want to have a closer look at Tim Beer Bar opposite Soi 12. At first glance you might just dismiss it as being just another small open-air bar, but there is more to it. There is a door in the bar that takes you to the dancing girls. They have T.V. screens in there too, so you can switch between looking at the girls and watching the football! They have some pool tables too... all in all, this bar is well worth a visit.
There are lots of property developments located just off Second Road; condominium developments are especially popular. If you are interested in purchasing a condo in Pattaya, have a look at my Pattaya property guide for my investment advice.
One of my favourite places to go for a quiet drink by myself is on the corner of Second Road and Soi 13,2. The 'Bodega Bar' is a good place to sit and watch the world go by. It's a good cheap bar where you will be left alone to relax. A bottle of Chang beer costs a mere 45 baht at the time of writing. 'Wonderful bar' and 'Wonderful bar 2' on Second Road at the corners of Soi 13,1 and Soi 13 respectfully are also good options for a cheap beer. Wonderful bar 2 has a live music act from about 7 or 8 o'clock.
Being a main road in Pattaya you are definitely going to find yourself travelling along Second Road more or less every time you head out of your hotel. Pick-up taxis run along it constantly. As far as the Pattaya nightlife is concerned, it has got a lot to keep you interested and coming back for more.
I certainly prefer the nightlife here
compared to the other main road i.e. Beach Road, but the best nightlife
venues such as Soi 7/8 or Walking Street are quite a bit more lively.
This one is still well worth trying out though.
If you would like to find a hotel on or near to Pattaya Second Road, there are lots available. I think the best of them would have to be:
