Visited the place on a Sunday night and we had so much fun! I love the decor and interior of the place, very chic and cool, and very comfy. Music by the DJ was really good and to top it off, we had the pleasure of watching some world class drag shows on the night that we were there. Crowd... More

We popped in here late on a Monday night, the place was quiet but you can imagine it being a bustling place later in the week. The fit out is amazing from the dispensary type bar to the quirky old school shipping line livery. It's situated at the side & downstairs of the Novotel hotel. Old School Casablanca movie was...

This is with out a doubt the place to be if you like fun! The music is great, the staff are kind and attentive and the vibe is sensational. This is what you think of when you think "Bangkok Night Out". The old vault rooms are a joyful added bonus and the quirky furnishings and Gogo-esque women create a night... More

A local friend of ours gave us this recommendation and we were so grateful! The bar is in the basement, not very big but with interesting slightly dark interiors and lighting. Good crowd with a mix of locals and expats not many tourists on the day we went. The music was super but not so loud that you cannot make... More

Cool speakeasy style bar, expensive by local standards but cheap compared to UK. Great cocktails. Better for a night out than a date or if you want to chat as the music is loud.

Fair-sized, cosy little bar with a great atmosphere due to the authentic Buddhist decorations. It comfortably fits between a bar setting and a club setting as it has a dance floor but also seating and a decent music volume level. However, the place is too expensive. I know it's fancy but I felt like the equivalent of £6 for a... More

Amazing ambience. Not overly crowded. Lots of private seating space, inside "holes in walls" and on lush sofas. Not too big but great line up of entertainment. Saturday night I went was House music with an amazing DJ and some live blues music. Perfect close to the evening.....

I had heard about this place from a friend of mine (who is French by the way and he really likes it here – why point out his nationality here? more on that later…) and three of us decided to check it out last Friday. It is in a basement of a building on Silom Road and my first impression... More

Love the feeling to go down and return back to the 1847 East India Company. Dark and misty to enter and lovely girl to take to. The drink is not cheap but it's special and good, different type of gin in the selection they have. If you find something good you can shopping the bottle and take with you home,... More

Another Ashley Sutton, so come expecting lots of drama in the setup and atmosphere. Come behind the wooden Chinese doors and time seemed to have stood still under the dimmed lights "In The Mood For Love". Got to love the cheongsam dolls sitting above the old school cashier counter playing cards. Got to love the cheongsam dolls sitting at the... More

Magical underground cabaret full of mystery, romance, jazz, reminiscent of Shanghai 1930.

Maggie Choo's was named after Shanghai cabaret owner who fled her hometown in 1931 following the Japanese invasion that tore the city.

Shortly after arriving in Bangkok, she found a 19th century Thai Chinese shoe box restaurant crammed into a basement 10 meters below Silom road serving authentic Thai chinese shophouse food.

When one day, she discovered behind the walls in the corner of the restaurant an entrance that lead to a derelict 19th century East India company bank built in 1847 used for storing porcelain and spices that the British used to carry back to England for Queen Victoria, her past caught up with her and she converted the old bank into a cabaret, just like when she used to back in Shanghai.

Today the cabaret is yet to be revived again...

Staying in Silom

Neighborhood Profile
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
