Good, but more Karaoke
Aug 2021 • Friends
Live music of songs from the 80s ok, but some semi-professionals are better.

Price for a cocktail around 210 Bath which is ok. Beer was too warm though.

The good thing is that you're music doesn't get disturbed by the bar next to you - like in many other places in this street.

Great music, perfect and relaxed view on the crowds, good drinks
Nov 2019
This is, by far, my favorite bar on Khaosan, if not in whole BKK. Why? The live music is just always good. Young and talented bands make you wanna stand up and start dancing. This is something you cannot find in many more places nowadays. The view from above on the crammed street is priceless and, with a cold Singha in your hand, good music in your ears, the best place to have a good time away from all the hustle.

Great place - great for people watching

Great 3rd floor bar to people watch from the balcony, with direct views of the Khao San Road below!

Drinks are cheap for European standard, but probably not for Thailand. Big cocktail list including & infamous cocktail buckets. There was live music when we went which was really good and a change from the rest of the bars & to top it off the view is brilliant. Great if you like people watching!

A must do on the Khao San Road!!!

The best live music in Khaosan Raod
Nov 2019
The Roof Bar is where you can have a great time sitting, drinking and listening to live music (and, of course, chatting with people)
Every single band/solo who come and perform here is awesome!
FYI: They don't play Thai songs.
Price: A small bottle of beer is around 100฿, a glass of cocktail is 180-290฿ (if I remember right)
:)

Great live music Bar overlooking Khao San Road
Jul 2019
Upstairs bar. not exactly roof top bar, but still a nice place to listen to live music and watch the crowds go by on the street below. nice chill vibes.

Lighting is quite dark inside, drink prices are avg - Chang Beer 100thb small bottle - Smirnoff Ice 170thb.

Overall I would visit this bar again.

Basic Roof Bar
Jul 2019
The view is just your basic view of Khao San Road below. Above view is only roof tops of the various buildings in and around Khao San. Their solo singer during happy hours was brilliant.

Awesome live music and ambience!

I was looking for a place where I could chill alone with a drink and live music on a Friday night, and ended up here after walking by a few other bars. Cocktail was 210 Baht and beer 120 Baht if I remember correctly, performance was nothing super fancy but very enjoyable. I loved the view down the street from Level 3, it's easy to snatch a seat overlooking the street especially if you're alone (even if the place is full and you might need to wait a while). Would return to this bar if I go to Khao San Road again!

*Warning: there is another bar on Level 1&2, Level 2 is accessed by the stairs inside the bar on Level 1 and there, the DJ just plays loud music and people just sit by the seats overlooking the street (the tables inside are all empty). Make sure you head to Level 3 via the stairs to the LEFT to get to the Roof Bar. I ended up at the wrong one on Level 2 for the first half an hour and I didn't even finish my drink before heading to the correct one!

Live music is really good!
Feb 2019 • Solo
Solo backpacker decided to go out for a few beers in Khao San Road.

Although the price of a small beer is almost the same as large beers in other establishments, I enjoyed sitting here listening to the music.

The view of Khao San Road is cool watching the people go by.

We just visited the roof bar and it was really nice with live music. The band was awesome! The bar has a nice view where you can see all the street. I really recommend for everybody who goes there. 😊
