Spicy Nightclub Chiang Mai

Spicy Nightclub in Chiang Mai is about the most notorious and the longest running nightclub and late night establishment in Chiang Mai. Chiang Mai citizens and countless number of tourists have enjoyed (and more than a few that didn't) for decades. It's moved locations and moved back again but has and probably will be known as the late night club you can find hookers, tourists and desperate bar girls. Spicy Nightclub originally known for it's spicy fish has also been known to many stabbings, fights, and the place guys think they have something to prove.

Your night at Spicy won't be dull, I was unlucky enough to get bitten by a Farang and all manner of weird shit goes on in this place. Over the years the crowd has changed and on a recent trip there just to scope things out the new setup they have in there makes it bigger than it ever was before they've tried to put the kitchen back in but doesn't look quite right, the fake cafe out the front being a front for the night club inside but hasn't helped as these days the closing time is about the time when people would start going there 1am.

Now when you walk into this place you immediately know that you're not going to expect a Bangkok nightclub experience. There is there long chair table where people are sitting down and this is the corridor into the club with lockers you can lock your stuff in, it's the strangest nightclub i've ever been too.

So as you can imagine most of the place is full of bar girls and prostitutes hence why it doesn't really get busy until late. Spicy Nightclub Chiang Mai is a located just a 3 minute walk from the famous Thapae Gate, but you could ask any taxi driver or virtually any Thai person where Spicy is and they should be able to tell you.

Although the bad repuation for fights it can be a decent place especially if your looking for a hook up. I don't personally go there anymore since the night a Thai guy pulled a knife on me, but i still recommend others to go there at least once. If you like load music and easy girls check it out.

There is also a Spicy nightclub in Bangkok which used to be so much different than it is today, you'll find all sorts of creatures there too, though i only recommend going once you've been everywhere else.

    Dont go spicey it’s run by the police mafia if you try stand up for your rights you will get beat up by the bouncers calling themselves the police everynight there is foreigners beaten up by the bouncers its nothing but trouble there.. the corner is notorious for fights stabbings and the police avoid the corner where spicey is,,, tonight I witness another tourist beaten up by one of the bouncers just becuase he said he is free and if he wants to walk up and dance in the street he is free to do so, the thais like there freedom but spicey thinks it owns the street so my advice go to the lucky bar club or jacks van or the thai disco the other end of the moat and stay away from spicey

      “Because he is free?” This isn’t Berkeley. Go home. I’d have probably beaten him up too.

      Going to Thailand for “freedom” is like going to Saudi Arabia for nude beaches. Get a clue man.

    The dregs. A couple small rooms where you buy expensive drinks to pay for your standing time. Recommend a regular pool bar, or better any bar before 2am so you don’t end up at spicy.

    • Chris February 24, 2012 at 6:28 am #

      I agree, i hate spicy!

  4. ChiangMaiGuy February 25, 2012 at 6:21 am #

    It’s a hole for sure but I do occasionally end up there only because sometimes I’m ‘on a roll’ and there is nowhere else after 2am.

    I must say I preferred the ‘original’ Spicy to the ‘new’ version. But I avoid it normally and it’s unusual for me to go there more than a few times a year.

    Agree. Spicy Bar is sleazy and very dangerous! 7 cousins together in Chiang Mai for a family reunion finished a night out in Spicy. By the end of the night 3 boys were in Emergency at Chiang Mai Hospital. All the males in the group were beaten up by so called ‘security’ on the pretence that one of the boys broke a door inside the club. Despite paying the 1000Baht for the ’damage’ to the door, the boys were trapped in headlocks and punched and kicked repeatedly and left bleeding on the street near the corner of Spicy. One of the boys spent a whole day in hospital, concussed and very bruised. The girls in the group were terrified and distressed witnessing the unjust brutality of the Spicy staff.

    Our whole holiday was impacted by this shocking incident. Steer clear of Spicy Bar!

    A terribly, corrupt place that preys on tourists.


    Unless you want to end up in hospital, scammed or put off going out forever.

    Just because it is the only place open past 2am, it is not worth the risk.:

    Stick to great places like Rasta Bar, where you can feel safe

    Interesting read – I’ve been there three times in the last week. A Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I haven’t noticed any of this type of behaviour. There is a limited number of bouncers visible.

    No fights from 2AM until close. No scams. The large group I went with didn’t notice anything similar either.

    Maybe I need to go a few more times! Or perhaps they (the club) have sorted out their act.

    Got hit several times in the head with brass knuckle and bottle after refusing a aggressive prostitute last night. Straight to the hospital.

    • Chris February 5, 2015 at 10:05 pm #

      I’m assuming you didn’t go to the police about it since I didn’t get any pictures of it. Always be careful about what you say and act.

      • Carl February 5, 2015 at 10:31 pm #

        Any pictures!? My Facebook site has a selfie from the operation table. II went straight to Chiang Mai Ram hospital with tuk tuk with my head covered in blood, no use to report it to the police I’ve been told. The violence was totally unprovoked from my side. Those girls obviously were taking some kind of drugs, normal people don’t act like that.

        • Chris February 6, 2015 at 9:57 am #

          No use to report it to the police? Dude that’s So dumb! It’s useless now that u waited so long but u shoulda told the staff at Chiang Mai ram to contact the police. Inside.the city they take this seriously. More than likely they woulda contacted my father and he woulda made sure u got restitution. But on the flipside the truth would come out and if u were a dickhead it would then be a waste of time which is what i suspect happened. Not going to the police is a dickhead move now they think they can do it again and ur now resposible for someone else being smashed. Again i doubt very much u were not at fault In any way but since u didnt go to the police ive only got ur story. Video inside the club is available to the police btw and these skanks are easy to find but like i said the police arnt going to be serious about it if you arnt serious enough to call them straight away. Always call the cops asap!!!

        • Chris February 6, 2015 at 10:01 pm #

          I see you went to the police two days after the incident. Would u wait two days in Norway dude? Even after i told u its now a waste of time. I still suspect you were being a dick for this to happen. Aint noone just gets smacked for no reason.

    I got challanged by a nut tuktuk guy outside Spicy, I said I want no problems and just here for fun. However, after a kick and forcefull offer .. I felt nothing else but respond. Immediate was a choke from behind and I see 2 guys and a chick rush in for opportunity.. all else is blur until I wake up with kicks to my head and face. Cut in my head ( PROBABLY WEAPON) and busted up . I like Spicy, but F those wack Thai guys looking a challange and respond as gang cowards. No need to police report, tuktuk have their own safety umbrella. Never fight just run , tuktuks are a gang. Farang have no chance.

    On this note… same shit can happen in “home country” and does a lot, but with justice. Even if you live here….justice is…, Thai style. The seperation of acceptance to society and acceptance to financial gains is….noted.

    Thanks for the heads-up guys. I’ve been living in Chiang Mai for a few months and have contemplated visiting Spicy before — Now I won’t bother.

    I’ve grown tired of the scamming Tuk Tuk drivers and aggressive prostitutes and ladyboys in the area. I’ve thought about retaliating a few times but I’ll heed these cautionary tales.

    As for Chris above ^ You’re a fool. You don’t know the facts and you’re branding a tourist a ‘dick’. Unfortunately I don’t trust the authorities here either.
