Bangkok is Southeast Asia’s gay party hub
The grand dame of gay clubbing just never seems to get old. Packed to the point of making dancing near impossible on weekends, DJ Station has come to define Thailand’s gay nightlife for many visitors. The place is three stories tall. Most of the dancing takes place on the ground, with some guys going shirtless on stage. On the second floor, things are noticeably more cruise-y and boozy. As for the decor, the dim lighting hides a pretty run-down and barebones setup.
