    Ao Nang Nightlife Scene's Hot Spots

    0

    Soi RCA Entertainment is one of the three main nightlife spots in Ao Nang (the two others are Ao Nang Center Point and Soi Bamboo). It is not clear what RCA stands for; in Bangkok, RCA - Royal City Avenue – is the epicenter of the capital’s clubbing scene; the meaning must be the same in Ao Nang, nevertheless the place’s status could give it another meaning such as ‘Radar Controlled Approach’ as any single man entering Soi RCA is literally scrutinized from head to toe by the bar girls (or wannabe girls) posted in front of each of the 12 joints available in the 100m-long street.

    Located on Krabi Town Road in the southern part of Ao Nang some 250m from the beach, Soi RCA is a smaller version of the sois featured off Bangla Road in Patong Beach, Phuket. The entrance of the soi is well-indicated with a large light box stating RCA Entertainment, and is flanked by two restaurants: Chanaya’s to its left and Tandoori Nights to its right.

  • True to Ao Nang form, Soi RCA Entertainment is more laid back than its bigger-city equivalents and even though there are girlie bars galore and a few glamorous individuals of questionable sexual proclivity there’s almost none of the raunchiness that’s associated with Bangla Road in Patong and Soi Cowboy in Bangkok.

    Brightly neon lit, Soi RCA host 12 bars, most of them with monikers leaving no doubt about the kind of entertainment to be found there: Lovely Bar, Amy’s 69 Bar, Kitty Bar, Climax Bar, Kiss Bar, Popcorn Bar, Mushroom Bar, Romantic Bar, Ao Nang Bar, Left Side Bar, Plamy Bar and, closing the back-end of the Soi, Black Butterfly Bar. Please note that a few to-be-open shop units are still available in the Soi.

    All of the Soi RCA’s beer bars offer mostly the same look – neon-lit basic outdoor bars with barstools – and a rather similar way of entertaining their guests: loud music, charming and accommodating girls (or assimilated) in their sexiest gear, simple bar games (Connect Four, dice games), and alcohol (Thai beer in small bottles at 80 baht, fruit daiquiri at 100 baht). A few of the bars (Kiss Bar, Black Butterfly) have a pool table.

    Although most of the (if not all) bars cater to men, women and couples are equally welcome with no hassle. Summing up, even if you are not a partygoer or in search of ‘fresh flesh’, Soi RCA Entertainment is a good place to have a drink and a laugh with the locals, and it is indeed a great people-watching place.
