Disco culture crept into Pattaya during the Vietnam war days when US
marines used to come here for recreation and relaxation. They drank to
their fill and then danced and danced. Many discos have been running
till date from those days. In those days, some of the discotheques had
sunken dance floors but now they have been filled in to levelise.

Tightening of Noose
There were times when loud music went on in Pattaya nightlife stops
till sunrise. Bars closed till 3am and then there were rounds of music
and dance. People enjoyed clubbing. However, an order has been imposed
recently which has made shutting down of the discotheques at 1am
mandatory. So fun-making, drinking and dancing people, have to leave the
place now by midnight.
