“What a gem”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great atmosphere and awesome live music. Covers of Hendrix and Marley along with some proper blues jams are refreshing in what seems an otherwise pop-heavy music scene.

“Good blues music in the heart of the night bazaar”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

It seems an unusual place to find a decent blues bar, tucked up in the eaves of the night bazaar, but Boy Blues Bar is a great place to chill out with a few beers and listen to blues music.
The bar is run by a very nice couple, Thai musician, Boy, and his wife from Kent,
6 days a week, Boy and his Blues Band play each evening from around 8pm to midnight.
They also have occasional guest musicians and jam nights.
At 100 BHT for a large bottle of Chang or Leo, beer is cheap and flows freely.
If you are in Chiang Mai, I would highly reccomend this place for an evening out.

“Nice place to listen to blues and have a beer”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is just a nice place to be. The people are nice and the music is very good. It is up the stairs at Kalare, but open to the outdoors. On special occasions, you can see the fireworks and balloons going up too. Boy and his band play most nights, but there are guest players too. Monday is jam night and terrific.

“Boys heavenly blues”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

What a show on a Monday evening, Boy with a backup of 10-12 guest musicians, all playing making space and music together.

Boy´s sound is just heavenly, his music is warm, happy and electric, the band knows their gig, I find it truly a great spot, to cheer up, feel happy being around people who all love the blues.

Boy play lot of great tracks, some of the very best from the blues and rock start. He adds his own finger print being a true artist creating sound on a guitar.

The best blues music found in Chiang Mai so far.
