Happy hour til 8 offers good value on limited cocktails, wine and beer buckets. Nice cosy chilled place a bit away from the horrendous crowds of soi 11. Unfortunately the woman who served us had a face like a slapped backside the whole time!

Came here with my sister and her fiancé. Really enjoyed the music/live band. I like the genre the duo played and how they put there own twist to the songs. We had 2 buckets of beer so I'm not qualified to review the cocktail drinks....More

I just stopped by for a pre-dinner drink. It was very close to my restaurant for tonight on Soi 11 in Sukhumvit. The drink choices were great and my mixed drink was perfectly made to start my night!!!!!

I went here based on a review by an expat in Bangkok. It's hard to find and not worth the effort. I also found it strange for a cocktail bar, that there was no cocktail menu. The seating is basic and uncomfortable. There was a...More

Hi Dubai Journal, We are right next to Cheap Charlie's so not sure if you didn't see the map on our website or our google pointer. Perhaps that would have made it easier to find. We have an extensive cocktail menu which would lead me...More

Like a lot of Bangkok bar / restaurants this place seems to vary greatly in popularity. First time the place was packed - the music was excellent and we enjoyed the food, drinks and service. On the second visit the music was not good, the...More

Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy our music the second time around. Given that our neighbour is a fish and chips shop, some times you can smell their food, but given their kitchen is out the back of their restaurant, it doesn't happen too...More

There are a few bars in this area and this is not a bad one. Cheap Charlies is nearby which takes most of the business but The Alchemist is a place for better cocktails and to sit and chat

Sukhumvit
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
