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

Love this place! Boy is a treasure with his uncle stopping by once in awhile "Took" to rock out! Saturday night is my favorite time to go and watch the magic! Beer is cold and well priced. Water and coke for the non-drinkers is cheap! The place can get packed!

Boy Blues Bar is easy to miss if you don’t know what you’re looking for… it’s above one of the shops in the Kalare Market (one of the covered sections of the night market, north of the intersection with McDonalds and Starbucks). It’s very close to the boxing ring and the restaurant that has seating like a food court. Of... More

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.
