Q Bar and Bed Supperclub, both on Sukhumvit soi 11 (BTS: Nana) are two of the capital's nightlife venues that have withstood the harsh test of time and the fickle nature of the after-dark prowlers.
The Bed Supperclub mini-complex consists of a restaurant-cum-lounge and an adjoining nightclub with a cover charge of 600-800 baht inclusive of two drinks.
The venue has themed music and dinner nights, and regularly hosts touring acts, with 2011 seeing performances ranging from indie group Klaxons to drum 'n' bass celeb Goldie and even pop icon Boy George.
Also down Sukhumvit Soi 11 just steps away is the 12-year mainstay Q Bar. Its skilled DJs and diverse spirit selection have attracted high-profile globetrotters including the likes of Mick Jagger and Colin Farrell.
Being undoubtedly "Concierge Select", both Q and Bed attract their fair share of tourist traffic.
