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.

 Cheap Charlies moved to On Nut a few years ago, similar set up, but not the same. Good call though, classic bar....

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

The early 80's saw me frequenting THE BAARN (next door to BLUE JEAN) in Patpong 1.. they were a few doors before the Madrid and now unfortunately long gone.  The very first bar I visited was the KEY N

The Saxophone Bar at Victory Monument is still around. The closure they announced last Friday is only temporary due to covid according to their website.

how about Wongs, on Ngam Dupli? Was still there and very unchanged a couple of months ago when I passed it. Very "old Bangkok".

Or Jack's Bar on the river near the ShangriLa - never changes.

Good call on Jack's1 Wongs I do not know although I have heard of it.

It was Delaneys originally.  Then it changed its name a couple of times to Shenanigans then Molly Malone's.

The Bull's Head is kind of still there but now as the Royal Oak and just not the same.  

There was a time when Dr. Blues, and also The Soi Dogs Blues Band were playing there on Sunday afternoon.

I miss the good old days when bars just popped up and then disappeared just as quickly.....waste land, derelict buildings, multistories...even under flyovers......shame.

Walked into Safari bar after not being there for 8 years & 2 dancers jumped off the stage like it was yesterday, sexy night , to name a couple, Hang Out Pub which moved from Soi 11 to Suhhumvit Soi 6  but with covid many old & new bars will be gone once this Covid sh  t is over.

Sad

"Sexy Nights" & "DC-10" still side-by-side at Nana Plaza though DC-10 did have a hideous renovation 7 or 8 years ago and went semi-LB.  Not sure if AngelWitch survived covid closures.  "Lucky Luke's" still in the same spot as is "Big Dogs" & "Morning Night" .

 

"Stickman" had a great write-up in his latest issue about various NP bar owners over the years as well as a link to an article about the notorious "Greg".  Still good reading after all these years.

Don't think I'm allowed to post a link but easy to find.
