Can anyone recommend a friendly (cheap) bar like Gekko?

Recommended Posts

There are a few Thai places near me that do 3 large beers for around 170, but sometimes I want to go somewhere that doesn't see me as an outsider.

Many farang places charge almost that much for 1 beer.

 

Gekko garden is good about their drink prices, but I'm struggling to think of any farang spots that matches their prices.

CM Saloon in old city was doing some deals of 70b Chang and 50 baht well drinks before 7pm.

 

Or if anyone can suggest some Thai spots where we are welcome, English is spoken etc.

 

I'm a Sangsom guy if anyone has any tips on cheap bottles.

 

Please try to avoid the cheap charlie comments, believe me I know it. I just thought those of us who like a deal could share a couple spots with each other.

O’Malley’s in the Anusarn Market has Tiger draft for 65 baht and a Sangsom set, including a flat of Sangsom and 2 mixers, for around 350 baht. You won’t be an outsider there.

My guess would be cheap falang food and drink and predominately falang customers.

Right next to where the CM Saloon used to be on Loi Kroh is My Place.  The brew is not the cheapest in the city but it's not the most expensive either, the staff is very friendly with good English language skill, and the food is good when I'm in the mood for farang food - as well the local expats customers are good company.  Always easy to strike up a conversation with both customers and staff.  Big screen TVs with sports if you're just into chilling.

That is correct as you would probably be on your own if you are not in "Scot's" inner circle!

T Bar, in Santitham.. and Oxide across the street.  I have had more luck teaching retards than getting them to serve cold beer, though. Beer Repugnant shuttered and moved to Ploen Chit to be with the Chinese after canabalizing a lot of the bars on the Nimman side streets.  Tiger are 610 per box at Tesco...
