When you're at the Dawn Market, sometimes you just need to take a break from the crowd. We notice this retro bar which has an upstairs balcony over the street, and originally popped in for a beer. Once we noticed the menu though, we ended up going for milkshakes and they were delicious (if a little small). The decor of... More

Nice bar, prices on cocktails and beers are not bad for the area. Sit upstairs to watch the people streaming past in the night market every night. Sometime host little events like photo exhibitions, which can provide a bit more to do in an evening.

Tucked away behind the Night Market stalls, this unusual Cocktail bar/Café offers a carefree retreat from the bustle: The place has an easy charm, housing a scattering of junk shop chairs and sofas. 70's wallpaper and American memorabilia complete the retro feel. It's definitely more shabby than chic; anything from Ella Fitzgerald, through to glam rock, fills the air (... More

Great spot to enjoy a cold beer or a cocktail overlooking the Night Market below you (if you are sitting on the first floor). Friendly staff, funky decor and relaxing atmosphere.

This is a great spot, overlooking the night market. Lots of atmosphere and friendly staff. There was a live musician the first time we went, playing a guitar. It was great - western songs but he was very talented. Subsequently we returned and the lovely barman/waiter allowed us to pick our own music from his laptop. There is a great... More
