Tai Pan Disco is one the oldest, hottest and easiest pickup joints in Patong, located near the entrance of Bangla Road and the Rat-U-Thit Road intersection it’s right in the heart of Phuket’s nightlife scene. The place get packed most nights of the week and there are a few good reasons for it, Tai Pan Night Club is sort of a fusion between a pub and a club.
From 09:30PM to midnight you get live bands performing all the rock & pop classics offering attractive “Happy Hour” drink prices until in-house DJ’s take over and Tai Pan shifts into a unpretentious disco with a fun vibe, live acts, sexy coyote dancers, games and giveaways during the night.
The club’s design tends itself more to seating than actual dancing. Most of the hall space is occupied by tables, stools and two long bar counters, while the small dance floor is next of the stage where are the bands, DJ’s and coyote dancers. Entry is always free and you’ll often be handed free shots vouchers at the entrance for every drink you buy.
Crowd is a mixed bag of young and old, tourists and expatriates, 20% of regular girls and about 80% of Thai prostitutes looking to hook up. In the end, the Tai Pan Night Club is for those who are looking for a great, down-to-earth, unpretentious night out away from pretentious and exclusive clubs.
