This bar has many issues. Firstly it's far too dark, it's impossible to get the staff's attention as they cannot see a thing. While you pick your cocktail they have to stand next to you with a torch. I would describe the ambience as being like a cosy coal mine with live music. We tried the cocktail with watermelon and... More

We went as a group of 6 on a Friday evening at around 1900 to make sure we got seats, the food was good and the burgers for which this place is known are huge, and there was so much left when we had finished that we had to get it boxed up to take home, ( my son lives... More

The restaurant appeared to be very attractive from looking at it and as we decided to go, we were greeted by a dress code requirement board so that elevated our expectations quite substantially. We were awed as we entered and the wow factor was there... But then our food arrived and everything turned dark, just like the bar was. The... More

Know this is a popular hotspot... and the Pirates of the Caribbean theme is certainly cool. But, we otherwise found the beer warm, the cocktails short, the prices expensive, and all brought together by a truly horrible band (that did at least 5 sound checks over 45 min or so before ever playing?!?!??). Expected more from such a place, especially... More

We went as a big group of 10. Its on the main road, so quite easy to find. We were complaining about the not so bar like exterior with some dowdy curtains. However the minute we got inside, it was cool & indie. The live music is amazing. Whether ur a couple or a big bunch, there's place & corners... More

We arrived too early for the live jazz, unfortunately. Staff is available to help you find a seat and also have a flashlight if you need it for reading the menu as it's incredibly dark inside. Drinks are expensive. Our bill wound up being $20.29 for 2 cocktails (including tax & service). Smoke In A Bottle #1 was unique and... More

Absolutely love this place. The photos don't really do it justice. Have to be seen and experienced first hand. Fantastic place to chill out and enjoy the dark, romantic and cosy atmosphere with live jazz music. Tried a few of the signature cocktails and they were superb. Recommend to try the green fairy too.. if you're up for it! Absinthe... More

Neighborhood Profile
Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While great for a night out, the area is nothing short of interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix of savvy coffee shops, pop-up bars and loads of vintage stores, brought to you by hip locals with eyes for design.
