“Best beer bar in Bangkok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Hobs is always super busy and is extremely popular with 20 something set. It can be difficult to get a table at times but it is worth it.

Food is based on a Belgium bar - mussells, burgers, fries, pasta and the food is really quite good.

Amazing selection of beers - it is a little more expensive here, but that's thonglor.

The small car park has an amazing collection of performance toys - Ducati , Ferrari , Porsche et al.

Love this place, it's a must when in Bangkok.

“Good food, but expensive drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The cheapest beer you can have here is a glass of draught Stella. Price Bath 160.
A glass of housewine, they charge you Bath 240.
But, that is not all. On the bottom of the menu it says:
Prices are exclusive 10% servicecharge and 7% tax.
So it ended up 280 Bath (US$9,40) for a sinple glass of wine. Cheers!!!!

“Good choice of beers, crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This place is normally quite crowded so if you dont plan ahead to beat the crowd most evenings you may be disappointed and not able to get a table or a spot at the bar to enjoy a nice imported beer.

The service is efficient and friendly, prices on the higher side due to the imported nature of most products which the Thai government tax heavily to try to discourage the locals from having a taste for imported products vs the locally produced beers..

Some of the tables are a bit rocky and need to be fixed... can be quite a bummer when you spend $12 for a beer and find beer tips over cause their tables are not steady,....
