Bright lights and music are things that are often closely associated with Pattaya and quite rightly so. The city has a vibrant nightlife and one which it is naturally proud of. There are some excellent nightclubs that play a wide range so music but in this article, we will focus on the bars that pride themselves on the live music that they play.
The Stones House
This is perhaps the best-known music bar in Walking Street after the closure of The Blues Factory. It is a highly impressive venue that is not as old as many people would think having only opened in 2014. As you can probably imagine the main theme behind the bar is the Rolling Stones. The venue has a great atmosphere and can seat around 100 people on the ground floor and about 30 people on the mezzanine floor. The music starts at 7pm and goes on until around 4am.
Candy Shop is another of the Walking Street venues that has a live band playing almost every night. The music genres include funk, soul, R&B and hip-hop so there is almost certainly something that will appeal to you. The several resident bands have been playing there for many years and know exactly what the clientele want which helps to create a fantastic atmosphere. This venue is very popular with Thais.

Hot Tuna Bar
Hot Tuna Bar is another of the music bars in Walking Street – opposite Insomnia nightclub. This is an open-air bar that has various bands playing classic rock from bands such as AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses. Other bands frequently perform there as guests such as local favourite Lam Morrison and the venue is always popular, especially when you consider the levels of competition that it faces from bars roundabout.
This is a relatively small venue in LK Metro but one that still has significant appeal. The bar opens at 6pm every night and the band starts around 8.30pm and continues playing whilst ever there are enough people in! The music has more of a rock theme although they are open to playing other music (if they can!). As the name suggests, the place is designed to look like a cave and this helps with the acoustics.

Bodega Bar is an open-air bar that is located at the Second Road end of Soi 13/2 and is a well-established music bar. The band starts around 8.30pm although this can vary and plays a wide range of music including rock and pop. It is a great place to relax and watch the world go by and the drinks are all very reasonable price. The staff are very friendly and the service is good.
The Classroom located on Soi 13/4 used to be an agogo bar but has now reinvented itself as a music and sports bar. During the daytime, this comfortable establishment plays music videos with music dating back over the last 60 years. In the evenings and nighttimes, the live band frequently play with a band almost guaranteed every Friday and Saturday night.
