The area
Address
Neighborhood: Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While great for a night out, the area is nothing short of interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix of savvy coffee shops, pop-up bars and loads of vintage stores, brought to you by hip locals with eyes for design.

I've been in Thailand 3 years and never had a worse experience than I've had in this bar

The first negative experience I had here was where they have a tendency to give out to microphones so that you have one of the regulars trying to sing over you. Not a fan of that.

My second extremely negative and most recent experience was when a random female customer allegedly tried to pin her bill on me. One of the staff tried to accuse me of openly saying I would pay for her bill which I never have. Not a big fan of people saying I said something when I never have. When subsequently it turned out that she had paid her bill after all no apology was ever done after publicly humiliating me. This place can burn in hell for all I care.

Terribly dissatisfied

I popped in for one beer while I was waiting for a friend and was charged an eighty thb service fee, which was supposed to be for free karaoke and snacks, which I did not indulge in and the waitress was insistent the charge remain. Eighty baht is not a lot of money however, to pay to just sit at a bar seems unfair. Anyways give this bar a pass

FUN BAR BUT SCAM ARTISTS! BE VERY CAREFUL!

My girlfriend and I had a really fun night in here however we were scammed which was a real disappointing end to the night.

We had been to a few bars prior, were rather merry and looking forward to a fun night singing tunes and making ourselves look like idiots (as you do at a karaoke bar). I'd heard good reports about Woodball so this is where we ventured.

Upon entry I paid 2000 THB for a bottle of cheap white wine (as expected) and partied the evening away with the very friendly Japanese customers that were also in the bar downstairs with us. It was great fun until the end when the bill came again. The bar staff tried to make me pay for the wine again, on top of the few extra drinks we'd had. My girlfriend and I explained several times that we had already paid for the wine upon entry and then the bar staff started to get aggressive. Security/door staff surrounded us and they demanded we pay. We tried to explain again and again that we had already paid for the wine, advised they check the security camera and that we were happy to pay for the remainder of the drinks but not the wine. Yet again, the bar staff and security staff demanded payment. The security staff started surrounding me and making threatening actions, as if to say "if you don't pay you will have a lot further problems". I've lived in Bangkok for 4 years and know what this means so in the end, rather than get a kick-in over 2000 THB, I paid it and we left. What a disappointing end to a really fun night. Yes we was drunk but the two of us knew what we were doing and knew for sure that our original wine bill had been paid. To be threatened by what seemed to be friendly staff was a real let down and rather scary for my girlfriend at the time.

I would highly recommend you avoid this place. There's plenty more Karaoke bars in Bangkok. Either that or make sure you keep your eyes on your bill at all times and make sure you photo/video record when you pay for anything in here.

What an utter disappointing end to a great night!

Thanks Takuyu!

Convenient location

It located right next to BTS Thonglor. Outside look quite dirty like a scum wall spray paint all over the walls.

They had quite a few choices of single malt Whisky though.
