A busy place on Sukhumvit Road. There is live music, which makes the place loud, but the music is actually quite nice. The menu is both western and Thai. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The good is good and so is the price.

We were staying at the Holiday Inn so it was pretty close. This was a nice and lively bar with very friendly staff and well priced beer. They also had a live band playing who were pretty good. Nice place to pop in for a pint!

Promotions of beers are nice with a mix of locals and imported beers. Great bar to watch sports as there are plenty of LED TVs running different channels there. Thai food is good. Service is a bit slow though.

We went there two nights in a row for a late night meal after a long night of clubbing, as it was right outside the soi we were staying in. Decent prices, courteous staff, and a lively vibe are some of the positives. On the flip side, the menu is limited and the food isn't all that great. However, I... More

I dropped in for a cold beer about 3pm. I was the only one in the place, so service should have been great. When I wanted a 2nd pint, had to look around for someone to serve me. I asked if the kitchen was open and asked for a menu, it never came. The service was poor but the beer... More

Was wandering around hoping to find some authentic Thai food and stumbled upon this little gem. Normally I wouldn't have given it a second look, but they had the menu out so I took a peek. Had a curry beef dish and a beer and it was truly fabulous. The service was also great. Glad I stopped in.

The Penalty spot is a really nice place to watch football (soccer) meeting friends, having some beer and to enjoy nice food. They show most of the EPL and Bundesliga games. The only

Good value friendly staff and great spot to watch the football. Food is bar style ala carte. They mix a mean bourbon and coke!

It's a sports bar but they refuse to show what you want to watch and show the same thing on all televisions regardless of whether anyone is actually watching it. The live music was hugely disappointing and the food/drinks were a rip off.

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
