Description: Live music venue that has 2 really good Thai guitarists who do rock and roll covers. HOWEVER, we ate the pizza there and got food poisoning. And turns out another couple that stayed at the same guest house had eaten there the night before us (had pizza) and also got sick. STAY AWAY from the food there!!!

“On a good night the music is great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

When a decent live band is playing, this place gets full and in a party mood. Drinks are a little over-priced for the location, but there is no cover charge.

“If you love your music live and as it comes, you'll love the Guitar Man, Loh Kroi, Chiang Mai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2010

I used to go to this bar all the time, when I first arrived in CM, introduced to it by a guy who visits here every year and loves both CM and the GM!! Sadly, don't get there nearly enough now I'm working (teaching) just outside the town most days, but would still recommend the place. Nicky (Blue-Nose scouser!!) and Nokky, great hosts.. real good feel, especially once the music starts, and you're quite welcome to take your own instrument(s) if you wanna take to the stage or join in!! Good grub too!!

“Wish we had a live music venue like this at home!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2010

The Guitar Man bar is an unexpected gem in a side road near the night markets in Chiang Mai providing a refreshing change to the normal tourist attractions with local bands putting on seriously excellent original and cover music until late (2am).

The venue is laid back and though the audience can be a bit mixed (typical Chiang Mai) don't let this put you off. Everyone is friendly but keep themselves to themselves. We had no hassles and loads of excellent conversation with a great group of people - especially husband and wife owners Mick and Nok. No pretension, loads of good music.

A great place in an unexpected location!
