Any Veteran Bars in Bangkok?

Recommended Posts

There are times I like having a drink with my own kind, men who understand what it's like living the life of a Soldier.

I have a lot of friends here in Thailand, but not Brothers who I can talk to about things we did in the military.

 

From a 22 yr. Vet, U.S. Army

Pattaya has a VFW between Pattaya South and Central. For some reason it is not promoted very well.

I'm guessing you're talking about the little bar-restaurant that's open afternoons and evenings at the JUSMAGTHAI compound near the corner of Wireless Road and Sathorn....

Just for the record, the place in the Jusmagthai compound is open to the public, and I've heard it has gotten popular among some office workers in the area... So it's not just a military type bar/eatery.

 

I'm not a veteran... But I'd assume there's some VFW presence somewhere here in BKK, and that they have some kind of meeting/gathering place somewere. I just don't know where that might be... But the folks at the Jusmagthai probably would know that.  And that probably would be closer to what you seem to be looking for.

I am also retired military, looking  for the same thing. Let me know  what you find.

The biggest collection of former military servicemen used to hang out in Washington Square. Alas, we know what happened to that place. As mentioned above, Justmag, according to many ex-military friends, is one such location for meet-ups. 

 

I cannot link to it here on TV but look up on FB, Brothers in Arms - Thailand. It's a closed group but send a message to an Admin. They should be able to help you.

I was 25 years in the RAF and I am certainly the only veteran in rural Khampaeng Phet for a 50 km radius that I know of.
