My friend and I gave this bar a try on our last golf trip to KK. The comfortable furniture, cold beer, cocktails, and friendly service will assure we go back again soon.

Look it's not ideally located being a 5-10 minute walk from the Kosa main drag, but you won't be disappointed thus give it a go. Also I believe it opens late afternoon and closes whenever okay. Also a safe area to walk at night. The food is great at realistic prices and the best Bangers and Mash in town. It's... More

Gee, I loved the food, service and the dogs!! Very friendly atmosphere with easy access. I've been there 3 times and everything was great. Haven't been there lately, but my friends tell me it's every bit as good as before. I Wish I were closer to number 1 bar, so I could go there more often, 125 Km. isn't an... More

One of the best bars in Khon Kaen owned by an Australian and his Thai wife. Staff always friendly, good music and inexpensive food with a trivia quiz night every tuesday. My second home when in town.

Drop in for a quiet one every now and then and it is quiet out the way and the staff are friendly. Come Tuesday night though the place is alive with quiz buffs pitting their knowledge and wits against each other till the last question is read. Very fun filled night, thanks Tom, Tom and Tom.

just to clear any misunderstandings, number 1 bar is in khon kaen on 39/7 namuang road, not the small number 1 bar in phu wiang. number 1 bar in khon kaen is now runned by a danish guy, but not much is changed since the scotish/kiwi owner, the quiz is still on on tuesdays, and live music in the weekends,...

This is an excellently organised event thanks to Paul. If you are on your own you will meet others looking to make up a team. Some teams take it very seriously - others just have fun. Costs 100baht and there are prizes. The bar host puts on a free meal afterwards. Great fun - starts at 8pm but you need... More

This is a restaurant pub that opened about 4 months ago. It is the only place of its type in this small city and it's customer base is both tourists, local expats, and Thais. It is run by an amiable English owner who was a chef in England and features a small menu as well as a draft beer and spirits. The prices are inexpensive. I am an experienced traveler in Thailand and I stayed in town for 2 weeks and went there several times per week. There is a well maintained pool table and a wide choice of music to request. The best way to describe the location is simply "behind the yellow bank. The Krungsri Banks always have yellow signs and there is only one in this town as you enter it. I think listing this restaurant would be of benefit for any travelers passing through this city since there is no other place to have a sandwich and a beer and no one would look for it otherwise. thanks.
