There are also bars, cocktail lounges, karaoke centers, and cabaret shows located on the Moonmuang and Thapae Rd.
Most of the beer bars are located near the Thapae Gate wall, especially in the Bar Beer Centre on Moonmuang Road opposite Spotlight a go-go. These beer bars are just like what you get in Pattaya and Bangkok. Lots of little bars both scattered around and leading to the beer bar centre. There is occasionally some Muay Thai action to liven things up.
Also in the Thapae Gate area is Spotlight A-Go-Go on Kotchasarn Road, and also Cosy Corner and John's Place on the other side of the moat on Moon Muang Road. These three a-go-gos - located south of the Thapae Gate wall, merely a few minutes walk from there - can compare favourably with some of the smaller go-gos in Bangkok.
There are some beer bars in the Night Bazaar area. Also known as Chiang Mai Entertainment Plaza. There you will find about 15 outdoor bars around a Thai boxing ring. At night, they hold kick boxing matches along with other shows.
