My wife and I have been to Sax bar on quite a few occasions. The service is friendly, the drinks are reasonably priced (my wife says it's the best G&T in Chiang Mai), and they play excellent music in the background. Highly recommended.

I have been to Sax Bar many times and it's got a real good vibe, the staff are friendly and the customers also. Good music and a pool table.

I know this bar now for over 12 years. Even management changed meanwhile not much has changed in there. A good place to meet tourists and/or expats. Lovely bar staff and really good music. I love this place!

Good music makes good people. That's maybe why I made a stop when I passed in front of this small café. It was raining in Chiang-Mai and the smiles of the people inside this bar made me want to know more about this place. I had a drink and in less then 5 minutes I was already involved in a... More

For up to 5 years this has been my favourite music pub in central Chiang Mai. Great atmosphere, sometimes party-like, other times a nice hang-around place for listening to rock and pop music. Easy to meet people, a mixture of expats, tourists and Thai affiliates. Friendly staff and adorable owners. Check it out, but be warned: once you get in,... More

Pretty disappointing. I thought this would be a cool music bar but it turned out to be just another standard hole-in-the-wall beer bar. Central, but nothing special.

Sax Bar has been one of my favorite bars in Chiang Mai for many years. They've always served up great drinks and have tons of music that the owners let you chose from. Convenient central location on the west entrance of Tha Pae Gate. Highly recommended.

This is the best place to party at in Chiang Mai! Its owned by a young Belgian guy (...or Dutch? hahaa) and his Thai wife and they are a lot of fun. They have a lot of local regulars, friends and travelers coming in so it makes a fun and interesting crowd. Its easy to find being inside the moat... More
