I am sorry we didn't visit this bar earlier in our trip. It has stunning views across the Bay and over Hua Hin. The drinks are reasonably priced for a big hotel.
Dress Code: I wore dress shorts, shirt and open toe sandals and they were ok with that.
I found a lovely little bar just out of town - Bar Tender. Its a 5 minute Tuk Tuk ride just past Tesco lotus on Soi 94. Cheap Beer, a great breakfast and some excellent pasties and pies.
We were on walkabout one night and discovered this place and spent an entertaining evening there watching the live footie, playing pool and getting merrily p***ed. Went back the next day for the jumbo breakfast - Bloody lovely !!
If you're looking for a wild nightlife with a lot of girls and crazy partys, you will be disappointed here in hua hin, but you can still have a lof of fun.
All the bars are located in the Soi Bintabath area which is very close to the Hilton Hotel disco. In every bar, only a few girls are working there, normally not very stunning but i've you walk down the street, you will definitly find someone you like. The bar with the most girl i saw in june 11 was the euronar. Ladydrinks are about 130 bath and barfine is still at 300 bath. Normally girls want 1000 or more bath for longtime if you wanna take them to the hotel room, depends how you look like (got some for 500 bath because i'm a nice guy;-)) and don't forget to give a little tip. If you want to stay longer in a bar they may want to play some games with you like Connect Four or jackpot or pool which i had always a lot of fun.
If you found your girl, go to a restaurant if your hungry or go to the hilton disco or after 2 o'clock to the other clubs behind the hilton and make party with her. You will a have good time and she will be happy to be with you.
Don't forget to treath them with respect and gentleness. The girls here in HH are not like the girls in other places in LOS. I saw a lot of primitive and agressive tourist who treathed their girl like ware, you don't want to be like them. If you treath her like you would treath your friends or even your girlfriends you will have a lot more fun...
Dress Code: Wear whatever you like but a little bit seriousness is always appropriated, isn't it?
If you tire of the honeypot culture along the main nightlife strip, there's a good little Italian named place just down along from Sofitel about 100 yards. At front gate of Sofitel turn right (left takes you to the nightlife), and continue right for about 100m. You'll soon spot the Italian sign on your right. Upstairs is a cool little bar where you can have a friendly drink with a few expats and locals.
A visit here is an absolute must during your stay. It is located in the centre of town and runs up from Petchkasem Road to the railway line and kicks off from around 6pm. Most stalls will start to close down at approximately 11pm, however some selling food will stay open until dawn.
The market is a fascinating insight into Thailand and the way Thais like to live. You will find countless outlets selling delicious food that is freshly cooked and served to you within a matter of minutes. Do also take a look behind the stalls on the pavements because there are plenty of restaurants there as well. Other than the food, you'll discover an overwhelming variety of local handicrafts, souvenirs and clothing on sale plus the inevitable knock-off CD's and DVD's.
There are several bars and pubs in the small maze of streets area that lie to the north of the Hilton Hotel. Most of them are run by foreign expats, especially Scandinavians, who seem to have taken over Hua Hin. Most foreign-oriented nightlife is centred on Soi Bintabaht and Soi Selakam, where many typical beer bars are found. There are also the usual discothèques, karaoke bars, live music venues, hotel bars and even a lady-boy cabaret, the Blue Angel. The pace of nightlife is much slower than in the larger western-oriented towns of Pattaya and Patong, while the proximity to the Royal Palace means that there are no go-go bars but you will find many Thai girls working in bars.

Hua Hin has countless restaurant and bar options near the beach front. However, the local ex-pats sometimes like a bit more quiet and intimate feel to get away from the tourist crowds.
One such place is named Thaiwaii, a cross of Thailand and Hawaii since the owner is from Hawaii.
It is an open air bar, with a pool table, decent drink and food menu and has a large screen TV for any special events.
Dress Code: The dress code is completely casual.
Unlike the BKK one, the blue angel cabaret is very small but you are closer to the stage. The funny part was REALLY funny. The ladyboys lipsinging and dancing for 75min for only 300B/p with 1 free drink. At the end you can tip and take a pic with all of them.
Dress Code: casual
When i was waiting for the train one day in Hua Hin i dropped by a newly opened little "hole in the wall" bar across the road from that train station run by a couple of local guys who were in to hard rock music and tatoos.
They just opebned the place and it didn't have a name yet, but it's all painted in psycadellic green and should be very easy to spot.
The guys running the place are very talkative and nice guys and it's a perfect place to go for a drink if you have some time to kill while waiting for a train.
Star Planet Hua hin is located at the City Beach Resort Hotel in the center of Hua Hin, walking distance from the Hilton, Sofitel and other parts of town. Very busy and packed full on Saturday nights. Live bands with singers and dancers. A great fun place for a late night drink and live music.
Dress Code: Small casual though you may also 'dress to impress' if you wish.
Hua Hin does not have the wild nightlife that you can find in Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket. Most bars can be found within a few blocks of the centre of town and on Soi Binthabat near the Hilton hotel.Some can get quite loud later at night, but in the afternoons and early evenings they are "family friendly" . Scattered about town are several clusters of beer bars (little ramshackle affairs where you can score a beer and a girl),
Cat bar is a tiny little bar, which is, like usual, more silent earlier in the evening but gets full when the midnight comes. Both local girls and foreign people of different ages come to sing here. Their speciality is that if someone is singing, and other people get enthusiastic and seem to know the song or sing along, the bartender girls give out several microphones. The only exception is the situation when someone has asked to sing some special song him/herself; then the others let him/her sing. It is fun, because if you are not sure of your voice in the beginning, you can start by singing along and trying this way to sing to the microphone. Then later on it's much easier to go on your own.
Earlier in the night there are many foreigners in the place, mainly singing and having a drink. Then, maybe at 1 a.m. or so, you can see the people changing - tourists are gone and local girls -prostitutes, the majority of them- come in. But don't worry, they sing, they won't disturb you if you're not interested. Also they didn't try to seduce my husband as they saw we were together :) Nice girls. We even sang together.
It has been my best karaoke time still by now. I don't sing well in Finland; our systems are somehow so different. In Thailand my singing even sounded right and nice - the backgrounds were just perfect and not too high for me.
The feeling was so high and we all were singing together or sometimes 1-3 persons in duets or together, that we forgot to go home - one morning we noticed it was 6 a.m....the feeling rises really to the roof there!
Dress Code: No dress code. Very informal athmosphere and place.
Very good Thai classic dance and Thai cultural display show to gether with dinner. This is a Hua Hin dinner and show together and makes for a great evening out in Hua Hin. One of the best places for nightlife / entertainment to visit.
Dress Code: No dress code but I would suggest smart casual
Many people enjoy the shopping in Thailand, and one of the things they look forward to are the night markets. In fact, there are two night markets in the centre of Hua Hin - one is the market frequented by locals near the San Paolo Hospital and the other is the more touristy night market near Wat Hua Hin at Dechanuchit Road. The one near the hospital is only open from Wednesday-Sunday whereas the Hua Hin Night Market is open daily.
In addition to the touristy Singha Beer t-shirts, try to sample the local food from the stalls there. Other than food, expect to bargain.
There are now two places to see Thai boxing in Hua Hin. The Thai boxing arena in the center of town is a short walk from the Hilton and other central parts of Hua hin. The other is at Grand Plaza near the Hua Hin Grand Hotel. Both offer Thai boxing which is a popular attraction.
