We dropped by early (slightly before the music started) and the staff seemed to have the attitude that we were nothing but a bother! The place is laid out interesting fashion, with narrow entry to the back, where the band plays, and even a small...More

Music is ok, but to pay almost 200 baht for water and/or soft drink is piggish, to say the least ... more expensive than any place I've ever visited, including cities like NY. Even the domestic beers are priced to deflate your pocket. Much better...More

Great evenings entertainment, cool jazz/american standards played with a chilled out vibe. Loved this. Good for escaping the manic pace of Bankok. Prices for food & drinks are reasonable and i would recommend the tower of beer for a bit of table bling. This is...More

Cool setting with some solid standard jazz, good drinks list (with lots of beer choices), and an easy stroll from Kh Sarn Rd. and surrounding accommodation make "Brown Sugar" an easy choice. Definitely worth a visit.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off

Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
