Nightlife & Thai Girls in Kamphaeng Phet

Last updated: December 11th, 2018 | in Central Thailand | Kamphaeng Phet | Nightlife | Thai Girls

Kamphaeng Phet is much more than just another usual province capital city. Located about 300km north of Bangkok, halfway to Chiang Mai, the city is mainly known for the Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Historic Town of Sukhothai and Associated Historic Towns”.

So if you come here you won’t be disappointed and that’s not different with activities after sunset, I was surprised how much is going on here – a lot more than in Sukhothai and even Phitsanulok.

Most of the bars and clubs in Kamphaeng Phet can be found in downtown on the eastern side of the Ping River just north of the little island called Koh Klang. There are no Farang oriented places like you find them in tourist hubs like Bangkok or Phuket.

It’s mostly Thai joints that don’t see any Farangs most of the nights – after all Kamphaeng Phet in general doesn’t see a lot of Farangs. Don’t worry though the locals are pretty cool and easy to talk to, after all Kamphaeng Phet is also an university city means lots of cute student girls all over the place.

Below is the list of the best bars and clubs in Kamphaeng Phet. At the end of the article you’ll find a detailed map with the exact locations of all the mentioned places.

Kamphaeng Phet Café

Kamphaeng Phet Cafe

The recently opened “Kamphaeng Phet Café” is so neat and friendly, you may feel so happy and relaxed here and almost forget to head to the town’s real nightlife spots. Run by a very nice Thai couple they don’t just serve some of the best coffee in town but also a wide range of international beers including Hoegaarden, Erdinger and Paulaner as well as the typical local favorites for surprisingly fair prices given the hip and modern furnishing.

Bars & Girls in Kamphaeng Phet

Z Through

Kamphaeng Phet Bar

Across the street from Kamphaeng Phet Café and 100m down the road are a couple of outdoor bars, one of it is called Z Through. This place has live music at most nights, beer towers (and girls), decent food and makes a great option to sit down and watch the scene not just in the bar but on the town’s happening main road, Tesa 1 Road.

Booze Up

Kamphaeng Phet Nightlife 2

Booze Up is another cool outdoor bar located next to Z Through. They’ve got a huge screen where you can watch live sports and if there isn’t something interesting on you can play Pro Evolution Soccer on PlayStation with the local boys.

Night Clubs in Kamphaeng Phet

3 Time Pub

Kamphaeng Phet Nightlife

3 Time Pub is one of the most popular night clubs in town, especially for the young and hip student crowd. There’s live music every night and since they leave the big door open it’s quite popular to sit outside. 3 Time Pub is a lot more busy on Friday & Saturday nights, at weekdays most of the large interior is almost empty while the people hang out in the outdoor area chatting and sipping Chang Export or whiskey with ice and soda.

189 After Six

Kamphaeng Phet Night Club189 After Six is for sure the most popular night club in Kamphaeng Phet.

It’s packed every night with young local Thais partying and dancing to the live band playing Thai rock and pop songs.

If you have only one night in Kamphaeng Phet, you should definitely check out 189 After Six.

And well guys, if you’re out for hunting something other than temples in Kamphaeng Phet, this is the place to go from 11pm till late.

    I spent some time living with a girl (who owned a lovely house and a farm) outside Kamphaeng Phet – a village called Mae Nari. Loved every moment; had all mod cons to keep my farang standards up yet all the little dramas and events that a farming village experiences daily. Retirement is a long way off for me right now… but I know where I’ll be heading for my final years. And it won’t be BKK! ?

    Thank you for sharing. I just reached the 189 After Six. It’s at the premises of Phet hotel.

    Just to add there is also a place called @around. It is off Charoensuk Road up a street opposite the gas station very nice with live music too. Also “on the rocks” too, not far from 3 time bar, also with live music. Just another couple of suggestions

    Ah yes, I rarely have any reason to use the MRT. Most places I need and want to go are on the BTS line.

      Hi, thanks for that little bit info. I have just been here in Kamphaeng Phet for 2 weeks and never knew about the Booze up….even though i have been in Z Through before, lol.
      189 club i think my g/f deliberately has not told me about, ha ha.
      I am here until late March but for sure….almost NO farangs at all which in a way is great, not crowded with tourists and not tourist prices either which is good to see.
      I’ll maybe try the Phet Cafe today….i like Chang but could do with a change of beer for a day i think.

        Hi Martin, no wonder your girlfriend didn’t bring you there :) though there are lots of couples drinking and dancing too. Have a great time!

        • martin says:

          Cheers, i have lots of time here so will no doubt make it there at some stage, purely for research purposes of course, lol.
          I was in the Common Cafe yesterday opposite Z through. Never had Hoegaarden but…….as i sat and had a Stella the owner zoomed off on his bike and left his g/f chatting to me…..and he appeared back 10 minutes later with a full case of bottles of Hoegaarden! ha ha.

    I live in BKK and I don’t even know that MRT stop. ;)

    • Redcat says:

      Coming from downtown it’s the station after Chatuchak Park (JJ Weekend Market). It’s also the closest MRT station to Mo Chit Northern Bus Terminal – from there it’s a 30 Baht motorbike ride to the bus terminal.

  • Mark S says:

    Interesting stuff. Hadn’t even heard of this place until now. Nightlife sounds decent. I’m guessing not too many farang there?

    Could be a nice spot.

    • Redcat says:

      Right Mark, most people only know the MRT statin in Bangkok that has the name “Kamphaeng Phet” :) Definitely off the beaten track, not many Farangs come here at all.
