Bars In Bangna

Recommended Posts

I live just up the road from Bkk Pattana and have be considering opening up a little joint for some time now. Looks like I may have at least one customer, Bob.

In the process of checking out some gaffs. I'll let you know how it all goes.

Look forward to a few beers together.

Cheers

Sounds good, looking for a partner??

There's enough Farangs in this area, but no where to go

Ok, I know this is reviving an old thread, but I've just moved to Thana City (working on the new airport) and that's even further out than Bang Na itself.

We have a couple of bars there (in Thana City) but pretty useless for sociable company. A few old farts (also working on the airport) and that's it.

Some open-air bars alongside the Bang Na - Trad highway (with the upper level concrete monstrosity) but looking at the traffic going by a few metres away, I reckon I'd be eating my beer if I left it uncovered (or undrunk).

So how about it - decent locations that don't take hours to reach.

There's the German brewery place opposite Thana City, good food and beer, bit expensive though at 150 baht for a half litre glass of beer.

I'm up for any new places in that area.

There is also Uncle Drunks, I think its still on Bang Na.

There is also a supposed Farang Disco / Karaoke thing I think from memory on the corner of 103 and Sukhumvit, The rest is very much Thai oriented from what I can see

Look on page 1 of this thread - it is a thai Karaoke joint - loud rock music, so on.

Wish I could recommend the bar in the Novotel, but that is as bad - the only thing it has going for it is it's name ....

I drive past the Novotel everyday, I've seen the signs for their "Pub" not my style I bet, full of rich hi-so wanna-bees.

There must be loads of Farangs in Bang-Na, may be we should designate a drinking spot where people can meet for a few bevvies, beats going all the way into town.

I'm still actively looking for premises. Hang in there boys. Coming soon.

In the meantime you're all welcome round my gaff for a few bevies. :o

I was stuck in the Novotel for a couple of weeks while my company found me digs. Went in the bar once, with my boss. Couldn't hear ourselves think, because of the noise. Asked for the music (?) :o to be turned down - no luck. Only a handful of people in there, all looking like lost business-men hoping for a lucky pick-up. No chance! :D

There just doesn't seem to be anywhere where one can just drop in and enjoy a pint or two, and the craik. And as I'm on the opposite side of Bang Na to Bangkok, it is quite a trip to get into town.

I am asking around on the airport site, but they're a weary lot of tossers.

I'll keep you posted.

Nothing is too far to check it out - when ???

Warning - it may be too far for a regular bevvy, if it doesn't meet my very demanding standards ! (Any draught ? Any Marston Pedigree, Old Hookey, Old Speckled Hen, Abbot Ale, Old Peculiar, ooooh I could go on and on ....) :o

Done my first bit of checking out - where exactly in Soi 71 - my company has an office near Klong Ton Bridge, at Soi Yaowaraj.

(There appears to be a 7-11 there.)

Never been there, but my driver will know it, as that's where he draws his pay!

How long must I hold my breath before I meet Mine Host in the proper surroundings?

Good luck !!
