Chiang Mai Bars & Pubs
Most of Chiang Mai’s nightlife is centred around the Tapae Gate area (along the eastern moat), along the Ping River, near the Night Bazaar and along Chang Klan road south of the city centre. There are quite a few open-air beer bars and a handful of go-go bars but the scene is much tamer than Bangkok or Pattaya. Most of these are located along Loi Kroh Road and Moon Muang Road. Here you will also find some ex-pat bars and sports bars with pool tables and large screens showing live sporting events.
