Been here many times and know Boy, the main guitarist and owner, quite well. It's an open air mezzanine bar in the enclosed night bazaar of Chiang Mai. It's a bit awkward to find but if you get into the enclosed area of the night bazaar, just follow the sound of the music. Entrance is free, no food is available... More

If you smoke and/or enjoy second-hand smoke, this is the place for you. Almost everyone smokes, and although the place is on the 2nd floor without walls, the accumulated smoke is overwhelming. I think it would be great if management can allocate a spot for non-smokers, but that is a long shot. Having said that, the music can vary from... More

Boy is a legend ... this place is amazing! We stumbled across this gem on a Monday night, open mic night and we loved every minute of it. All the acts were pretty damn good and the atmosphere was buzzing. If you are in Chaing Mai and love live music give this place a go. It wont disappoint.

These guys know their blues. So much local talent in CM....wow !! This was our last evening in CM. Last nite we'd been to Roots Rock and Reggae and came back sufficiently impressed with the 2 bands that were playing. The first one Croissant reproduced Marley and Reggae almost to perfection. The 2nd band was also amazing with 2 horn... More

Was recently invited here by one of the locals for the Monday night jam session. Run by Boy and frequented by local expats the line up continually changes as they each join in belting out a few songs. What a great place that I have never come across before. My intention was to go for an hour or two and... More

Great place for some genuine live Blues and Rock from the seventies and beyond. Mixed crowd from young till elderly. A special jam session every Monday, quite an experience ;-) Boy is the soul of the place and he knows how to engage the crowd, nice lad. Located near Night Bazaar on a roof top terrace it's an awfully cool... More
