80% HUA HIN BARS NOW OPEN!! BUT CAN THEY SURVIVE? (THAILAND)

JONNYS LIVING IN THAILAND VLOGS
While Hua Hin is not a wild party town like Pattaya or Phuket, there’s still plenty of options for a night of loud music, strobe lights and vodka shots. This post will give you an overview of the town’s nightlife areas and some of my favorite venues.

Take note that bar/nightclub business is fickle and I cannot guarantee 100% that all of the venues listed here are still open by the time you read this – I do my best to keep this as up-to-date as possible, but sometimes a long-closed bar may be left here. I’d appreciate if you leave a comment below in case you notice any outdated info here. Cheers!

The main nightlife district is located in the touristy Bintabaht area. Littered with dozens of small bars, few nightclubs and some restaurants, this area draws in a healthy crowd of both tourists and locals.

Another nightlife hotspot can be found in the northern part of town, along the main road. The few large clubs, pubs and restaurants here are hard to miss. The establishments here are targeted for Thais.

Bintabaht area
Located in the heart of Hua Hin, this area around Soi Bintabaht offers the most choice in venues. You’ll find an Irish pub, nightclubs, some Italian and French restaurants, and many small beer bars and massage parlors here.

It should not come as a surprise that many of the establishments here, especially the smaller, seedier looking places, are built around prostitution. These places can be easily recognized by the large number of young(ish) women hanging around, trying to lure all men they see inside for drinks. If you are a single man, be prepared to get approached and groped by many of the working girls (or “girls”), especially if you don’t sport the large beer belly and shiny male-pattern baldness as many farang tourists here do.

“Normal” nightlife venues include el Murphy’s Irish pub and Blue Monkey nightclub to name a few. Especially the latte is popular among the local students and young professionals in addition to tourists. Keep this in mind if you’re looking to meet local girls (or boys) in non-transactional basis.

Bintabaht area is small and easily navigable on foot. I recommend to leave your car or motorcycle parked outside the area, to avoid difficult drive-through of the narrow and crowded streets. Or consider staying in one of the guesthouses within walking distance, or check out the hotels map – there’s plenty of choice in this area!

Soi 80
This narrow soi consists mostly of small beer bars, massage parlors and a few restaurants. In addition, several guesthouses can be found here. Like the seedier parts of Bintabaht, this area caters largely to foreign sex tourists, although it’s not so uncommon to find normal Thais here on a night out too.

In all honesty, I’m not really familiar with this place so I cannot give any bar or restaurant recommendations. But the area is easily reachable and easy to navigate on foot, so you should have no problem in exploring yourself. All the venues cater to foreign tourists, so they’re easily approachable.

  2. Wow. That corner bar and the 7 eleven were my go to places. I had many a good nights at that bar and the music and atmosphere was always lively. At least the Beer Garden is still open. Also…how is that one fellow who tried to steal the cards allowed in Hua Hin…and I’m not!!!! 😅😂

  3. Well done Jonny for sticking up for Sak the magic guy. Thailand doesn’t need asshole foreigners like him. Keep up the great work mate 👍😊

  4. Very good very good update on the bars. Great to see you went down Soi 80. That must be one the first Seven Elevens I ever known close, I could never get my head round just how close some of them are to each other. Good to see the magic guy going strong. Cheers for the Vlog and stay safe.

  7. Good to see some of the bars have re-opened in bintabaht and soi 80. Easy bar, May’s bar, Joes’ bar, K-bar in soi 80 all know me. I agree with you too, Hemingway bar in bintabaht is great, the owner is a great guy, he loves to dance too.
    Miss being there so much. Looks as if we won’t be able to travel from the UK to Thai for a while just yet though with all the restrictions. 😥

  8. Nice to see things opening back up hopefully things will soon get back to some sort of normal which will mean wages for the locals . Nice vlog as always stay safe

  9. Nice vlog Jonny. Better be careful with magic man, he can make your balls disappear. 😂😂 Can’t believe the barefooted farang idiot walks on the street without a guide. Take care and enjoy !

  11. The scene looks much improved from a few weeks ago but a way to go yet. The magic man is a nice poor old skin, he’s been there a long time now. Good update Jonathan 🙂

  12. Love the Aussie commentary…You are making me laugh while all the American Vlogers are talking about Independence Day…Because they Love America so much. Hence they now live in Thailand..👍👍

  13. Cant help but comment. Id play magic man with some of those lovely things… fill their purse with cash immediately. And I shall most certainly give Sak some money….

  14. Awesome video Jonny! Keep them coming! Sak Magic is a cool dude. Hope that crazy guy doesn’t steal or do other bad things to anyone. One day, someone will take instant justice.

  15. Hi Jonny, it’s not looking good for us in the USA coming back to Thailand for the remainder of the year. On a better note, I’ll be ready to move to Hua Hin next year when the country opens!! Looking forward to seeing ya’ll again…Miss ya buddy!

  16. 1:10 Finally someone with some decent sense. I honestly can’t get behind the channels that go around filming the girls and guys in there. Just doesn’t seem right nor proper.. :/

  17. Good work helping out the Magic Guy. Lots of lost souls wandering Thailand. Soi 80 looks like its back in full swing. The other Soi was already on the demise.

  18. They might be open but with but for how long with out tourist they will be knackered and it all depends on other countrys on when they will open there borders like australia and if you go to anouther country like thailand for a holiday and wheather they will let back in to australia even if thailand opens there borders up to some countrys thst have got the virus under control bloody victkria is all locked down again a bog stuff up by the state goverment has caused it big out break of the virus again mate.Where is the easy plenty of pussy bar mate? Ha ha ha

  19. Lol when you asked @ at the Aussie bar how much was expecting you want short time or long time .On a serious note as you know Hua Hin is a older expat populated area ,it will be a some time before those bars are back .

  20. Great videos JJohnny
    Love the relaxed honest content
    Much needed rain here on gold coast,settling in for a week of it
    Not looking very good for Thailand travel from Australia until early next year,with Government officials still locking down areas of Victoria and NSW planning for increased numbers ,but thankfully Qland has it contained this stage
    Cheers Chris, GC,Australia

  21. Well Jonny to be honest I didn’t like you first few times I watched your videos. I have to say I was wrong. Really enjoy them now you seem a descent enough bloke. Well done and thank you.

  22. I’ve had some great nights(and days) in HUA-HIN. I reckon it might be worth another trip next year instead of the hustle and bustle of Pattaya. Always seen some great bands in the bars, and never ever wished for go-gos either. Some great honest girls there who would baulk at the Pattaya scene. Always liked the Bintabaht at night and bar-hopping drinking CHANG. I remember one night speaking with the band @ NICE’N’EASY bar I think, then trying to head home but not making it, slept in bin shed for a few hours…bitten to pieces…then trying to walk to my digs and seeing the drummer on the main rd sitting with his pal outside what I thought was a bar, but was a bike repair shop…they called me over, gave me more whiskey then I tried to pay my bar bill…….lol….ended up the drummer gave me a lift home about 5am on his bike to my digs…..what a fantastic bunch of people, sometimes their generosity knows no ends.

  23. Jonny so nice of you to help support this nice magic guy ! i bet you not only does it give you joy to help him out but i am sure Tital will love these magic tricks i know i did when i was his age…

  24. Looks alot better than the last video of the area. Like the magic guy. That guy that is crazy I wonder how he makes out at immigration. Looks like he is French fry short of a happy meal.

  25. You smoke any ribs yet? Remember honey for the money when you wrap them. My flight to Bangkok is supposed to land in about 8 hours. Had 3 weeks with the family planned to Samui and Krabi. Dam Covid-19. Hope I can make it next spring.

  26. 3:30
    I’m not really into MILFs but I’d make an exception for her. I wished you would have asked her how much is the Bar Fine, ST, and LT… hehe

  27. I just heard from one of my girlfriend’s who works in one of the bars on Soi 6 in Pattaya… alot of the bars are open but currently the girls are not making any salary. The girls will start making a salary starting next month. I’m guessing the bars need girls to volunteer to make the bars look busy. Even if the girls are not making a salary from the bar, the girls can make money the usual way.
