I thoroughly enjoy going to the Boy Blues Bar because of the great music and interaction with the band. It has a nice, relaxed atmosphere and the service is good if a bit slow at times due to many customers.

This is one of those places I only ended up visiting because of tripadvisor, but I'm glad I did. chilling with a few beers and listening to great blues is a great antidote to sightseeing and market traipsing. it's in a strange place, elevated in a kind of crows nest at the top of the covered market, open to the...

I planned on listening to 3 songs and then heading out. The bands were amazing, 2.5 hours later I headed out when the bar closed down. It was so mesmerizing that I did not even realize that I missed dinner. Even if you do not actually go to the bar, the music will float through the air and lift your... More

We had so much fun there that we went twice during our short visit to Chiang Mai. Great musicians and ambiance. Boy Blues is fantastic! Oddly enough everybody danced on Thursday night but no dancers Saturday night, however both nights were very enjoyable. No bathroom facilities or food in bar but they are only a short walk away. We got... More

We were there on a Saturday and the music and the atmosphere was really nice and the drinks are quite cheap as well. It s a good spot if you are on the night bazaar anyways.

This bar is a gem. Find it in night market. Don't go to Chiang Mai and not go here. So friendly and very surprising as to the quality of music, both local and ex pat. Some wonderful talent with many interesting instruments appearing from time to time out of the audience. Mine host is a charmer. Now my third visit... More

Very good vib, good priced drinks, good music. Blues only on Thursday to Sat when we were there. Boy Blues plans then. We missed the blues but the rock and roll music was very good. The GPS location shown on Trip Advisor is correct, right on, but you need to go into the center of the Bazaar to find it,... More

If you love blues and chilling with friends, this is the spot for you. It definitely offers top talent and the prices are great. Free entry and you just pay for your drinks while being entertained. I'll definitely be returning here, over and over! Great job guys!
