This place has been here as long as I can remember; since 1982 according to their sign. Always a lively, mixed crowd of backpackers, local expats and other hangers-on. Most drinks 80 Bt, unless you want something really exotic like a glass of wine (100 Bt because of Thailand's crazy wine tax). If you're hungry there're plenty of street vendors nearby selling local fare for not much, which you can bring back and eat at your table (if you can get one!).
Closing Friday, March 31, with as yet no plans to re-open anywhere else (according to owner).
Don't know why my pics are sometimes upside down.

You need to hurry up if you want to visit this classic bar as of the end of the month March, 2017 it will be no more. It has been around for 37 years but the land has been sold off to real estate developers. It is a cool little place and many back/gray/ flash packers will be sad to see it go.

90 bahts for famous American Tennessee Bourbon with Cola + great atmosphere + nice people...what else do you need? :)
You should definitely come have a drink or two especially that there are plenty other bars/clubs around

I first came to Cheap Charlie's in 2006 and hit it every time I'm in the Sukhumvit area (annually). It's a fixture, a legend on the travel and expat circuit.

I've shared reunions there. Had new meetings. Enjoyed happy memories. I hate to see it go. Greed and urban development win again. Run the little guys out to make room for yet another tower. Suk11, the very eclectic hostel just around the corner from Charlie's, is suffering the same fate.

A fabulous little bar and a real Bangkok institution. A friendly place to have a cheap (and very cold) beer and watch the world go by. Fun expat crowd and always someone to have a chat with, One of my fav bars in Bangkok and the world! Family and I have been going here for over 20 years and are really sad to hear that it is being demolished to make way for new development. Soon there will be nothing left but high rise condos and rooftop bars. A real loss to Bangkok! Really hoping it can relocate.
