Came here for a few drinks last night. The drink offers were a little expensive and shots watered down which wasn't ideal. However it had a great atmosphere and band. Just don't fall for the connect 4 scam.

The drinks were quite expensive compared to other bars on Bangla road. The service was good and my friend and I really enjoyed the live music. The staff do invite to play connect 4 with you of which they will charge you for their 'time'.

Whether you want to chill with a cocktail and watch passers by, or down shots of tequila dancing to live bands, this place is a great choice for both! One of the staff members Sunny was absolutely hilarious and she made our visit so welcoming.

Great place to chill out and watch the droves of Tourists. Beer prices are the usual 80 Baht. Service is average. Band are exceptionally these Guys and Girls really do make this place one to visit.

Having enjoyed the group last year we were not disappointed this year. Great mix of music well delivered. Nice place to sit and watch the crazy world of banglor road go past. Toilets aren't that great though.
