We landed at this place at the night market on Monday and found out that is the day there is an open mic at the Boy Blues Bar. No place to sit, we still stayed for the music and the beers etc. Not expensive at all and great fun. Went there three nights in a row after.

Great atmosphere, cheap drinks. We went the first time at the open night, the place was packed, had a blast. Then went there every night we were in Chiang Mai.

If you like American blues you will love this place and Boy Blues Band. He is an excellent guitar player with style similar to Santana, Hendrix and Howling Wolf that he has made his own. A blues fan will be in heaven.

If you are looking for some entertainment, this is a great place with live musicians. The bar is nicely located and the staff is very friendly. It is a must stop in the evening if you want to chill and have a good time

Just got back from our 2nd night at Boy Blues Band. Great music and Boy Blue is having so much fun playing it that it is infectious and you have to have a good time in the audience. He had a local harpist and singer join his band on stage and they were all great.

Treat yourself to a night out at Boy Blues Bar - upstairs in the Kalare Night Bazaar (just listen out for the music). Not the most comfortable bar around, but boy, the music and friendliness of the place makes up for the slightly sore bum. I make a point of including at least 1 visit to Boy's bar every time...

What a lovely evening! I was humming all the way back to the hotel! Boy Blues Bar is situated in the Kalare Night Bazaar on Changkuan Rd. After searching for a venue with live music & reading the reviews on TA, I made a note & we got to the bazaar at 18h30. Boy Blues only opens at 20h00 so... More

We were contemplating another night of muay thai kickboxing when we heard what sounded like some pretty cool live music playing somewhere in the distance. A quick "heads or temples" toss of the coin decided that it was a live music night tonight for us! We can be terribly indecisive at times and often rely on the coin. Anyway, we... More

Boy Blues band starts playing 9.45pm, 6 evenings a week (not Sundays). Drink prices very fair, 110baht for large leo. Music great, most seats a bit uncomfortable. Find it in night bazaar by entering Kalare Market at zebra crossing, up steps to mezzanine floor. 3 regular players, guitar, bass guitar, drums, gel brilliantly to produce great blues. Augmented often by... More

A previous reviewer spoke of limited live music venues in Chiang Mai. This is actually inaccurate. There's live music to be found all over the place, including many spots in Niemanhaemin. On the basis of only one hour's listeniing to date, having arrived at the end of the evenng, I'd venture to say Boy Blues Bar is the best. Performing... More
