We stumbled upon this bar while shopping in the night market and I am so glad we did. The band that was playing (not sure if they play every night) was amazing and played fun throwback songs. Drinks seemed pretty standard, about 90 baht for a small Singha. My only complaint is that I wish they were open past midnight... More

Talented musicians. Great night. Will certainly return. Good wide cross section of music, from 60's & 70's to 90's. Boy Blue himself is very good but so are his accomplices.

It doesn't get going till about 10 pm , but it has all the best blues/rock bands and musicians of Chiang Mai playing through the week as well as touring blues musicians and Bangkok players and a jam night where anyone can get up or join in . A great range of acts .

Myself and my friend are in Chiang Mai for three nights and we stumbled upon this place after hearing the music. We were the first people in the bar this evening but it soon started to fill up. All I can say is it was one of the most enjoyable nights of our lives, the music was absolutely fantastic. Such... More

Just follow the music! You'll hear it straight away when you get into the Night Bazar. Great atmosphere, and Boy himself sure knows how to handle the guitar!! Monday evenings are jam nights - a complete mix of styles. You will not be disappointed!!

When Boy himself is playing this place is 5 star. I drop one star due to sour faced girl who is serving there each night. She always seems put out when you want a drink. Three others sitting behind bar doing little, yet it's hard to get their attention for another drink. All absolutely worthwhile just to watch and hear... More

Fabulous live music, drinks not too expensive and the best atmosphere we have found in Chiang Mai. We had the pleasure of hearing Boy play too as the band were a guitarist short and WOW! Definitely not a place to miss and a perfect escape from the market after a spending spree!

Good music, reasonably priced beer and a relaxed amazing atmosphere. Come here for one drink as a break from the market or stay the whole night like we did - it's a real gem!
