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)
:)

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.

We love the live music, second visit here.
Drinks are ok, reasonably priced.
We enjoyed sitting overlooking Khao San Road whilst listening to the music.

Good vibes :-))

Being a little older than the average traveller it was great to find a bar where they played music that we lovey and it didn't all rap 😄😄 great place to chill on the balcony and watch the world go by. Nice cool water spray as you look out. We went twice and had a great evening each time, with great staff and service.

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!

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.

The bar is dangerous because of tricky waiters. I paid for a small bottle of beer which really costs just 100 baht with 1000 baht note. They don't give my change

Felt compelled to visit this place after reading a few reviews on here. A real place of less debauchery than it's neighbours, with a decent amount of drinks, and decent service.

The singer is what makes it, though. He was singing western tunes and recent chart stuff, but it was excellent, and not as appreciated as it should have been.

I would definitely give this a go if you're into live music.

Found this place after wandering up Khao San Road of an evening while in Bangkok. The bar is about 3 floors up and looks out onto the street below (great for people watching if you can nab a seat along the front). It gets very busy so getting a seat can be difficult but if you do manage, you won't be disappointed. Full table service and an extensive list of drinks to pick from, friendly staff who are very accommodating. Nicely decorated although the toilets do get quite dirty late in the evening which is the only downfall.
However the stand out attraction at the place is the live band/music. I'm unsure if they have the same guy singing every night but he was AMAZING! Perfectly sung English songs that young and old would know, creates a great atmosphere that makes it hard to leave!! Brilliant night and I would recommend as well as revisit should I ever have the chance!

This is the third time we've visited the Roof Bar in Khao San Road and we always have a great night. Khao San road is a sight in itself (sample fried scorpions, drink cocktail buckets etc), but this little place is perfect once you've walked up and down a few times and want to enjoy a few drinks and some quality live acoustic music.

It's up a few flights of stairs (third level) and you can hear the music from the street. There is usually someone down below with a sign directly people up as well. Get there around 7 - 8pm, when the music starts, to get a seat by the balcony (it's cooler, you get a great view and no so cramped) and then just enjoy the music.

Perfect way to spend a night!
