What’s Happening at Nana Plaza?
Nana Plaza is all about adult entertainment and shows.
The place is full of bars with attractive Thai girls and ladyboys.
Each venue has a different style of girls, music, and sexy shows. And some have no shows at all.
But with the largest selection of lady bars and gogo bars in Bangkok, Nana Plaza truly has something for everyone.
You can drink a beer outside and watch the night unfold. Or you can go to a gogo bar and have a drink inside with a girl on your lap while you watch the girls dance on stage.
You can also get curious and find out why Thai ladyboys are so famous. And after that, enjoy the hottest sex shows in Thailand.
With all these bars, girls, and shows, it’s really up to you what happens in Nana Plaza. And how curious you are.
For a safe and smooth start, here are a few places we recommend
What Are The Best Gogo Bars In Nana Plaza?
There are over 20 gogo bars spread over 3 floors, each with tens of hot gogo girls and sex shows.
And overall, the quality of the girls and the shows have gotten better and better over the years. But some bars are just bad.
So, for hot girls, great shows, good fun, and reasonably priced drinks, we recommend the following gogo bars.
Angelwitch is not only one of the best gogo bars in Nana Plaza; it is also one of the most unique.
With their incredible erotic shows ranging from a single girl striptease to lesbian shows to sexy shows with up to 5 girls getting completely naked, it is a must-see.
Go get spanked at Spanky’s! It’s one of the most iconic gogo bars in Nana Plaza, and for a good reason.
The girls are great there, but what makes it truly incredible are the erotic shows. They have shows all night, and with a style you will not find anywhere else in the city.
The Rainbow group is so popular that they have not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 gogo bars in Nana Plaza.
Even though there are hot girls in all their bars, the wildest one is without a doubt Rainbow 5 on the second floor.
And last but not least. Head to the 3rd floor for some crazy fun. Billboard is arguably the most famous gogo bar in Nana Plaza and maybe even in Bangkok.
On busy days, it can host up to 200 hot dancers on busy days and has incredible shows every night.
Make sure you go say hi to the Billboard girls.
Ladyboys In And Around Nana
Nana Plaza and the area in front of it (upper Sukhumvit soi 4, called Nana by the locals) has the highest concentration of ladyboys in the city.
And the Plaza is also home to a handful of incredible ladyboys gogo bars, where the curious can learn more about the world-famous Katoey (the Thai word for ladyboys).
Ladyboys Bars in Nana Plaza
Located on the ground floor of Nana Plaza, next to Rainbow 2, True Obsession is the first ladyboy gogo bar you will come across when exploring the complex.
It is a small bar compared to other gogo bars in the area, but it has some, if not the best ladyboys in Nana Plaza.
Go to the second floor, next to Rainbow 5 is the second most famous ladyboy gogo bar in Nana Plaza after Obsession.
There are usually 10 to 15 ladyboys inside, no shows, but the atmosphere can get wild and fun when the bar is full.
Go there when it’s crowded, usually after 10pm.
Also on the second floor is the Casanova gogo bar. You can not miss it because you’ll see touchy tall Thai girls (who were not born girls) grabbing your hand or something else as you walk in front of it.
Freelance ladyboys around Nana Plaza
As we said, the area around Nana Plaza is where you’ll find most of the freelance ladyboys escorts in Bangkok.
Most are on the sidewalk around Nana Plaza and further down Soi 4, while others are in Sukhumvit, around the entrance of the famous Soi Nana.
Many of them can be really hands-on so don’t be afraid to say a firm “No, thank you” if you’re not interested.
