We went here on a friend's recommendation and were not disappointed. We went on Monday during happy hour and ordered lots of tasty cocktails and BOGO mojitos after happy hour was over. The nachos are delicious and messy.

Apoteka is at the bottom end of Sukhumvit Soi 11 and is opposite Insanity nightclub. It has a great pub atmosphere with live music every night from Blues, jazz to rock and pop. Beer is good and food is great.Likes to be called a gastropub.

Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls
lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll
rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While
the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of
entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys)
where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for

Yes Live music is THE USP of this place and they do from 7pm onwards and goes on till past midnight. Its so popular now that they turn away clients when its too full. So calling them and making reservations is the mantra.

Hi Gayle! We do not have a strict dress code! Our place is very casual, you can rock up in jeans or shorts! Flip flops or sneakers! Just bring a smile, an appetite for some drinks and ears for the music! :)
