What Historic Bangkok Bars Do We Have Left?


Recommended Posts

Bangkok changes so fast and a lot of old bars are gone.

 

But I am in the mood for a historical pub crawl (after covid). I wanna try them before they are no more. And if anyone fancies joining on such a pub crawl, lemme know!

 

I know about the Madrid and the Old Other Office, but what else is there?

 

Doesn't necessarily have to be Vietnam War era, but just bars that have been around since the 90s at least.

 

Cheers.

TV Farang don't socialise with other TV farang, there would probably be a bashing before the second bar.  I never heard of historical bars. There are some pretty old bars on soi cowboy with some

When I think of bars that have been around say since I first arrived in BKK most of them seem to be hotel bars eg as above. Or say the wine bar on G floor of the Hyatt Erawan and the nightclub next to it, used to go a lot but not been for many years.

FCCT , again not been for several years

 

They renovated the FCCT, even moved the bathroom so that no longer qualify as an old bar.

Is DC10 at NEP still around?

Been awhile since I have been out.

The Dusk to Dawn Tarantino inspired bar is missed.

Bit of a dim view of TVF members, wouldn't you say?      😶

There are still a few knocking around, but most have been blitzed in the name of 'progress'  mainly for sh*tty poncey 'finger food', ' craft beer'  'hipster/flashpacker' (really!) places, I doubt few bars in Bangkok now, would make those old 'best bars in Asia' lists. All I can think of are is the Chequers, the Bier Garten, Sexy Nite (Nana) Superstar (Patpong) the Huntsman, even Gulliver's (Soi 5 Suk, or KSrd), Morning /Night and Stumble Inn (Nana), which feel like 'new' bars to me, are approaching 'vintage' status,  

Ah yes , Chequers, that brings back memories. I got taken there my first week in BKk, did not venture into the Plaza though, that came some weeks later!

I guess what you would call old bars are all gone, Cheap Charlies, Check-In, And the old favorite Golden Beer Bar at Nana Hotel. Hilaries is still around but new and not improved. The string of Bars under the express way have been gone for a while and the Saxophone Bar Victory Monument. O well the beat goes on.
