One upmarket hotel, 4 minutes by tuk tuk from Silom’s gay nightlife, plays host to Bangkok’s best known pool party – Sofitel SO. The SO Pool Party is the perfect place to start a big night… or continue your big weekend which started on Friday, as the case may be.
On the last Saturday of each month, Sofitel’s pool, bar and lawn area plays host to a DJ and a couple of hundred sexy people. The area itself looks over Lumpini Park, Bangkok’s Central Park, once notorious for after dark men sexing and lady boys working, offering a green view framed by the city skyline. In the other direction to Silom, the world famous, Babylon, is just a 10 minute walk away, which may be one reason a high proportion of the guests who stay here are gay.
As the video suggests, SO Pool Party draws a mixed crowd with a lot of internationals, yet that doesn’t stop the drunk twinky couple from pashing each others faces off on the lawn… aside from the boy and bear annual Songkran Pool Parties in April which are just gay, this is still probably the gayest pool side event in town.
Find details for the event on the So Sofitel Bangkok Facebook Page.
Arrive no later than 5 pm and party till the end at 9 pm. Locker and towel provided. Then, taxi to R3 for their Saturday night O-Party before going on to Silom.
Have a wicked night!
