Soi Cowboy, Bangkok

2.3
#4 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Bangkok
See the bright lights and Go-Go Bars of neon-drenched Soi Cowboy, one of Bangkok's most popular late-night haunts among tourists and expats. The short strip features about 40 bars and Go-Go bars, where scantily clad dancers entertain their clientele, so think twice about bringing children. Nightlife columnist Bernard Trink named the street Cowboy after T.G. "Cowboy" Edwards, a retired American airman who opened one of the first bars there in 1977. The nickname comes from the cowboy hat he often wore. Plan to visit Soi Cowboy during your Bangkok vacation using our convenient Bangkok itinerary website .
