I could quite easily get smashed on Samsong whiskey and listen to some live guitar but the location is also a let down: it's situated inside... More

The Monday night jamming sessions are fantastic. As a regular of the old drunken flower I was delighted that Boy took this to the next level. His bar is excellent.

This cute little place was recommended to us by the owner of the hostel we stayed at in Chiang Mai. We visited during a jam session and boy was it good. Highly recommended if you are in the area.
