“Not too bad”
Review of Royal City Avenue

Royal City Avenue
Reviewed October 2, 2012

we went to route 66 and arrived at around 10past so we managed to get a table outdoors complete with 4 cushioned chairs.. the place starts to fill up from there and by 11ish the whole outdoor standing area is packed as well.. there is a 300baht cover charge for foreigners, which you can redeem for drinks.. a bottled beer costs around 160baht.. shots are 200baht each with/without mixer.. a henessy bottle costs as low as $1700+baht but mixers (incl. water) are about 60baht each

route 66 seemed to be the most happening club on that stretch, and it played good music! even people outside were just dancing at their tables and having fun..

lots of tourists and foreigners.. we encountered a group of westerners who keep asking the waiter to chase us off from our table for them, saying that we didn't even order a bottle (we got there earlier and had quite a few bottles of beer and shots and cocktails and hey we still spent as much as the price of a bottle >=( rude pricks ), but! the waiter refused to give in to them and said he couldn't chase us away. so yes, there are actually nice waiters and service there no doubt..

later we shared the table with 2 ncie french guys and partied and drank together for a bit, and offered a chair to some girls at the standing table next to us.. hey all's well if you just be nice and not act like a rich spoilt superior brat ey?

tip: go early before 10pm if you want to grab a good seat.. music is great, didn't see any fights or rowdiness, female toilet queue gets longer as it gets later, no smoking inside the club though music is equally loud outside..

we went as a couple and still had lots of fun and made new friends! (and we're above 25 :P)

The clubs here are HUGE and world class. Tons of people--all very friendly. It’s a lot of fun. Did I mention how fun it is?

RCA is designed for the younger crowd. I would not venture there if you are over the age of 25 to be honest there are so many teenage kids running around it makes you feel like your back in high school. The music is way to loud and the good luck on getting out of the area when the clubs close. The traffic is terrible. Also at a few of the better known clubs there is a foreigner surcharge that is redeemable for a drink which makes no sense. I have lived in Bangkok a number of years and have been to RCA less then a handful of times because there are better places to go period.

mostly catered to younger crowd. Loud music, etc. If you're over 40, you'll feel out of place. But for the younger crowd, they love it.

Royal City Avenue, known as RCA, is the location of "House", one of Bangkok's two are cinema places. Although a little out of the way (take a taxi from Petchaburi MRT station) they show great foreign and independent films and sometimes defy the Thai gorverment's censorship laws.
