While this is by no means a favorite haunt, it is a nice place to hang out with friends, particularly on the outside deck. The live music is fairly unremarkable — nothing to draw you in, but also at not such a volume that it keeps you from having a conversation.

Consistently entertaining live music which is captured perfectly in the spacious bar with high ceiling. Lots of very high quality live bands and guest musicians. Food and drinks are great and often my bill comes as a surprise but that is due to having a good time and spending longer than first planned - smashing, friendly venue.

I am rating just on the music as I only stopped by to get my tune on and have a beer. A bit of an expensive beer mind you, but there was no cover charge and the band was very good (Ped's Band). If this is your genre, make sure you get along here. BTS to Nana, walk north along... More

One heck of a good place to spend a Sunday afternoon and evening. Good bands play daily, featuring; Blues, rock and jazz (depending on which band is playing that day. Popular with ex-pats and locals.

We visited with friends a couple of times in December 2016 and each time we had a great evening. The staff, venue and atmosphere were good with good live music provided as well. The music genre's played are more jazz/blues/sixty's orientated which is not available at the other bars in Soi 11. The food is excellent with a selection of... More

Getting there you have to pass a bit of an iffy neighborhood.But its worth it. The band that plays here is really good and they belt out some nice music. The craft beers are a bit pricey , a little too high in my opinion. The food is pretty good and also on the pricey side . Don't have the... More

Rip off joint ! See my bill...1 pint of Imported Pale Ale.....341 Bht ($10) !! They have a 'happy hour', but fail to say it doesn't apply to all drinks. They then add VAT AND SERVICE charge to the bill, in a bar ! MY strong advice....Avoid at all costs.

Based on five visits in the last five days ... service is great. Music is diverse and LIVE! It appears that ownership has changed from 'Galleria Sukhumvit Soi 10' to another owner but service quality is still very high. Most important for me -- very helpful staff have remained through the transition. I had a great "countdown" -- 12/31/2016 --... More

Just went for the music and drinks on a friend's suggestion and was very pleasantly surprised both by the quality of the music and also by the atmosphere of the venue. Nice high ceilings and comfortable seating on stools around the band stand made it very intimate without being too loud and and had plenty of air circulation. Fun fun... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
