This bar was a gem of a find. It's tucked away on a soi behind the Night Bazaar (we only found it because it was near our hotel and we walked past it) but it's well worth making the effort to find it. The music was great, and they had different bands in different styles every

Thanks for the great review. Yes, we're all about good music, good food and a good vibe. The mossies are courtesy of Mother Nature, which we can't do much about, but at least they're having a good time as well :-)

Unfortunately we were there too early for any bands which was a real shame. We ordered a couple of pizzas though. They took over half an hour to arrive (the place only had one other couple there) and once they did were so very disappointing. Greasy, lacking any flavour, poor

Thanks for the feedback and sorry you didn't enjoy the pizza. I can assure you that everything is made on-site, base and sauce; we definitely don't use frozen shop-bought bases. Our pizzas do take a little longer to make, but you would've seen the staff start work on yours as soon as you ordered. But please drop by again, when we've got music on, and we'll make sure yours is made the way you like it.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes, we're definitely all about the music and everything is geared towards that. My first love is the blues but we try to have a mix of different styles, just to keep things interesting. There are so many good musicians in Chiang Mai and we want to showcase as many of them as we can.

My wife and I had dinner here one night while craving pizza. The pizza was delicious and filling. There was no live music - it was still quite early - but they did have something on that was really cool. The atmosphere and look of the place are great, kind of rustic, with
