Longsong Full Moon Party


Grab your glow sticks and neon body paint: tropical Thai tradition takes over the CBD bar, with cocktail buckets, sweet and savory snacks, DJ tunes and live entertainment.

Be transported to Thailand’s beaches every month – not by plane, but through food, drink and beats.

The Thai Full Moon Party originated on the island of Ko Pha-ngan and is held on the beach every month, following the lunar cycle. Thousands of revelers descend on the beach when the moon is full, with the party continuing until sunrise. It’s been running for 37 years, and now Longsong gives you the island experience, minus the airfare.

Located above Longrain, the sophisticated cocktail bar is transformed by twinkling lanterns and UV blacklight into a vibrant tropical paradise. And like the original evenings, it takes place every month.

Drawing heavily on Thai street food, the menu includes bar snacks like chicken skewers and sweet fish sauce; brioche buns topped with shrimp, sriracha mayo and pickles; fries sprinkled with tom yum salt; fish balls; pork char siu; spring rolls and more.

For cocktails, choose between a classic Long Island Iced Tea or a Phuket Pash, which strikes a sweet and sour balance of passion fruit, lemon, and lychee. They will all be served in miniature neon buckets – and yes, toothpick paper umbrellas are included.

DJ Taijae will spin house, disco and dance tunes, with the night’s entertainment provided by MC Gloss the Queen. And admission includes Full Moon Party essentials like glow sticks and neon body paint.

Entrance is free but registration is compulsory: you can reserve your place here.

5 p.m. until late.
