Soi Bar Solo
Chaweng Gay Nightlife
Soi Bar Solo follows the pattern set by the other major nightlife hubs in Chaweng of being named after the biggest and most renowned club, which usually marks one end of the street. In this case, it is Bar Solo, which is at the Chaweng Beach Road end of this 100m long soi, which is the main attraction. Chaweng Stadium Event Center, at the other end, is also a big draw (particularly on a fight night) and results in the place sometimes being called Soi Chaweng Stadium Event Center.
Despite its small size, Soi Bar Solo has quite an impressive choice of very laid-back bars, almost all of which have a mostly gay clientele – a fact made all the more self-evident by the rainbow flags and names like Pride Bar. There is also a limited choice of clubs, massage bars and restaurants while the two main transgender cabaret shows in Chaweng are found in adjoining streets.
