Chiang Mai Nightlife

Chiang Mai has dozens of places where you can grab a beer or a cocktail, listen to live music, or both. Two centers of action are the Riverside area, where restaurants like the Good View double as bars later in the evening, and Nimmanhemin Road heading south from Huay Kaew Road. As with elsewhere in Thailand, many Bangkok-style hostess bars are easy to find, most notably at the western end of Loi

Kroh Road, the southern end of Moon Muang Road, and the Bar Beer Center next to the Top North Hotel on Moon Muang Road.
