10 Years of Glow Nightclub: #1 Underground Club in Bangkok

10 Years of Glow Nightclub: #1 Underground Club in Bangkok

This article sheds some light on Bangkok's leading underground dance music venue and why it has become the venue of choice for Bangkok's underground dance music events.

GLOW opened in 2005. The 2-storey boutique nightclub is located on Sukhumvit Soi 23 and has a capacity of around 250 party people. The club spreads over two levels, each one equipped with a dedicated bar area serving a broad selection of premium liquors. The look of GLOW has recently been refurbished and now features a futuristic multicoloured LED lighting system.

If you need a break from the dance floor, you may move up to the second floor where you will find a couple of homey daybeds and a mezzanine granting a view on main bar and the dance floor.

GLOW started out from passion and the pioneer idea to exclusively push electronic underground dance music and provides a unique environment for people that are passionate about non-commercial electronic dance music. The music policy includes Tech House, Deep House, Techno, Minimal, Drum&Bass and Bass Music.

GLOW hosts international guest DJs on an almost weekly basis, often in collaboration with prominent promoters such as Retox Sessions. In the past two years, GLOW had welcomed numerous talented DJs from all around the world, such as Seth Troxler, Steve Rachmad, Pan-Pot, Alex Niggemann, Makoto, Goldie, Manuel De La Mare, Rober Babicz, Laura Jones, Jimpster, Darren Emerson, Dubfire, Nico Stojan, Martin Eyerer and many more!

GLOW recently opened a new chapter by launching their brand-new sound system from FUNKTION-ONE. The brand is one of the most respected & renowned in the club & festival scene and has become an industry standard over the past 15 years. GLOW has a complete system on both floors, featuring twenty speakers, seven amps and three controllers. If you don't know what to expect from that, then let's just say… you can enjoy crystal-clear music while still being able to talk to your friends without the need to yell at each other ;) Yes! It’s awesome!


GLOW is also home to numerous well-established monthly event series. Have a look at the below selection of 5 club nights we warmly recommend.

Phatfunk is a long-standing monthly Drum & Bass club night, joined each month by an international guest. For more information click here.
