The area
Address
Neighborhood: Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
How to get there

It’s Ok if your in the area

This is a quirky bar, I was never a big fan of the Soi 11 one, I prefer a bit more comfort like air con and comfy chairs while I am drinking my beer and a nearby clean toilet

I never understood the hype and excitement Cheap Charlie’s generated

This reincarnation on Soi 50 is pretty much the same as the old one , I occasionally go as it’s near my condo but I would not recommend if you have to make a special trip to come here you will be disappointed

Give it go if your in the area ! I will continue to so occasionally , you can order food from other stalls and eat when your sat outside Cheap Charlie’s

Not sure about the comments on other reviews about cockroaches - maybe the resident lizards are keeping them under control !

Just not the same....
Jan 2019 • Couples
We had been frequent Charlie's patrons for many years. Since our last visit to Bangkok, the bar has moved out to the sticks and it is just not the same,
While part of the old facade remains, the atmosphere is very different.

Partly disappointing for nostalgic reasons, partly disappointing because it was just disappointing!

Nice place for local expats

Used to pop in the old place at Sukhumvit 11 when in town. Most the time you could meet and old geezer with great stories when Bangkok was still wild.
The new place has still "cheap Charlie" prices and friendly service but now a younger generation patrons with boring stories about how successful they are.

Don't Waste Your Time. It's for Backpackers and Vagrants
Dec 2018 • Solo
I laugh when I read titles for Cheap Charlies such as "Best Bar in Bangkok." And claims like that should alert you to the low reliability of online reviews. Let me explain. This place isn't even a bar. It's simply a stand with a very very small area to stand with a few tables to sit but all of it is outdoors. There's no difference between going there and going down the street to a 7-11 and grabbing a beer and drinking it on the street except the beers will cost you around 150% higher than at 7-11. Best bar in Bangkok? lol. More like worst bar in Bangkok because it's not even a legit bar. If you're looking to spend $3 for a drink that you have to consume while standing outside on the street Cheap Charlies might be your place. But if you want to go to good bars Bangkok has a huge number and I suggest you look into them because there are some really cool places. Cheap Charlies is a place for vagrants in my view.

The best bar in Bangkok
Nov 2018 • Friends
I have been to this bar many times over the last 19 years and was really sad when it closed on Soi 11.

However, it's now at Soi 50 and back to its best. Nearly every drink is 80bt (with a couple of exceptions). It is full of quirky artifacts and much of the old stuff has made it to this location.

The bar attracts all manner of clientele, from locals to tourists and ex-pats alike. You can order great food from the surrounding restaurants and eat it there.

A must visit bar, full of history. A double thumbs up from me.

Cheap Charlie bar On Nut

Still the same old Cheap Charlie's bar. All drinks at 80 baht. No Wi-Fi and probably not the same vibe as Soi 11 but still a great place to chill. Terrific burger joint directly opposite in case you have the munchies.
