Route 66, Bangkok
Like Flix/Slim, the new and improved Route 66 is divided into two. Because of popular demand, both sides now feature Hip Hop and R&B. The Bed-inspired entrance opens up to an all-white interior for West, with massive speakers backed up by a digitized sound system. Animation and other visuals play on the walls and ceiling, but again tables and chairs crowd the middle space, otherwise perfect for a dance floor, making it difficult to cut up rug. Again like Flix/Slim, the Hip Hop/R&B room on the east side is more packed with the virtually all-Thai crowd. This room also includes a superb sound system and commercial music videos flashed across big screens.
Free entry but don’t forget your ID!
Drinks:Red Label 890, Black Label 1,350, Heineken 120, Bacardi/Cruiser/Nite 140 ,Mixers 40 baht.
Renovated RCA's "Route66" East/West, divided into two parts. First part features Hip Hop and R&B, Other part features live bands (but less popular and less packed compared to hip-hop room). New version of Route 66 looks very much like Bed Supperclub though.. but as good.
Can be too crowded on Fridays-Saturdays. Most of crowd are Thais. (mostly university kids) Go early if you want your own "table" Otherwise you have to hang around on the dance floor which won't have much space left. And it kinda sucks if you get your own table!
Club closed at 2 AM

Coming here we parked the car in the multistory carpark and went to look for some decent clubs. Route 66 looked to be the best so we made our way here. never been to a Route 66 bar before and it was actually quite decent. The drinks were cheap and the atmosphere was great. The music was hip-hop and there are two different rooms for East Coast and West Coast. We were also allowed to bring in bottles of wine. Had a great night here and spent not much at all and probably the best thing was there were not many Farang "westerners" and mostly Thai students.
During my second trip to Thailand my ex-girlfriend suggested we go out to this place because it was close to our hotel. The bar was called Route 66 and it seemed to be quite busy both nights we went here.
The bar is a split level area with tables and bench seats below and an upper open area where people can look down on the dancefloor and sit around the outside edge. They play mostly techo-house music, and have a bunch of screens all over the bar, which show anything from movie trailers to the people dancing on the floor. They also serve bar food if you feel the need, and it is quite tasty and cheap.
We had a fun time coming here at night, as it broke up the site seeing pace set during the day, as well as gave me a different Thai experience. The main reason for this was the fact that out of the whole bar, I would be the only non-local person at times... talk about an eye opening experience.(but it was all good).
Dress Code: The was no dress code that I noticed, everybody whatever they felt was comfortable.
