Muse is a multi-level venue that never fails to draw a large crowd, especially on special band and DJ nights.

Dress to Impress
People who want to dance the night away in one of Thonglor’s trendy clubs should be prepared to dress to impress and take along some form of identification. While these clubs usually charge a small admission fee, they often provide live entertainment from famous DJs and bands and can get extremely crowded, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. These venues usually stay open until 1am or 2am and provide electrically charged atmospheres that attract people from all walks of life.
The Thonglor district is situated around Sukhumvit 55 and consists of one long road as well as several smaller roads branching off the main road. Party people can take the BTS to the Thonglor station and then take a stroll down the road to their destination of choice or arrive in style by taking a taxi the rest of the way.
