“GREAT BAND AND BEST WAY TO FINISH OF A CHIANG MAI NIGHT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Boy is a top guy and great muso. Band is tight and was tight the 3 nights we finished our nights off there! Gig night was great fun and everyone had a top night.
Drinks are priced well and cold. If your in Chiang Mai do yourself a favour and visit Boy Blues Bar for some great tunes, cold drinks and holiday memories you will talk about for a while, we are including our 5yo daughter that had a ball!
Thanks guys keep up the great work and see you all agian soon.

“Great blues”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Boy is a lovely guy who plays a mean guitar. His band is on every night and play some fantastic blues. People are welcome to jam and the atmosphere is friendly. The chairs look liek they came from a kindergarten and are a bit uncomfortable, but the drink prices are reasonable and overall, it's a cool little place. Check it out.

“A bit rough around the edges but not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

I went for Monday jam night and it was a bit disappointing. The level of musicianship wasn't great and since the bar is semi-open, when it started raining, everyone got wet :(

I went back the next day and the music from the house band was much better. Boy is a lovely guy and while the bar is a bit rough around the edges, it has a laid-back and comfortable ambience.

Thank you for your review and yes we are waiting for a new roof to be built by Kalare for next rain season!! These things take time in Thailand!! As for the jam night, (as with all jam nights), they are a bit of fun for our customers who would like to join in... so a bit hit and miss sound wise, but always good fun for those joining in!! Thanks for visiting us in our first year and please join us on facebook if you would like to see when our special nights with Thailands star guest muso's would be!! We'll be making improvements on the bar for this high season (though what blues bars aren't a bit rough around the edges hey)?? Hope to see you again BBB

“Great music and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Located in the Kalare Night Bazaar, Boy Blues bar is a great venue for residents including expats and tourists and everyone is welcomed. Boy and his band provide the music, which is great. The atmosphere is relaxed and good fun. Would be performers are invited to play as well. Drinks well priced for the city centre and if you ask, they will allow you to bring in food from other venues to eat while you enjoy the drinks and music at the bar. It is upstairs, so go to the area near the stage downstairs and look for the neon sign.
