Ratchadapisek is a very long road, but there are several Subway stops on it (From Rama 9 up to Phahonyothin Road) so it's easy to get to nowadays. Not much atmosphere besides a few big hotels, the Fortune Shopping center and dozens of massage joints. There are some big discos in the area and tons of karaoke places. But from the subway you can easily travel to other parts of town that have better entertainment options. All that aside, you won't find the Ratchada area to be particularly peaceful. Like most of Bangkok, it's always a bit chaotic and loud.
