Read about this bar before visiting. Got there around 9:30, thought it was easy enough to find just by hearing it while in the night bazar. Cool little set up and seated straight away and given menu. Beers and spirits so pretty simple. We saw...More

Nice Thai blues bar above the Kalare Night Market. These guys can play! Google says the also serve cocktails, but it’s only beer and liquors here.

The bar is a low key, open rooftop establishment but don’t let this put you off. The service is excellent and our waiter could not have looked after us better. The music is absolutely outstanding. We arrived with Warren from Ice and Earth performing and...More

A great spot to come and hear some fantastic Blues and relax for the good Brew or some snack food. Boy blues is known all over Chiang Mai and is very popular.

We had to search around for this as google maps was not helpful. It's actually inside the main night market pavilion. Saw 2 of the 3 bands playing - both excellent. Boy's band was fantastic- great mix of well known and some of their own...More

Really enjoyed visiting here and seeing Boy and his live band - they're very good. It's in a great position, above the Night Bazaar, so you can eat and shop before going up to wind down the evening to some good tunes.

We really enjoyed our visit to the boy blues bar. We had heard that the music could be hit and miss, luckily the evening we were there both bands were really good. Drinks are a little spendy - stick to beer. No food is served....More

Hi. Early in the evening would be good. Make sure you go on a night when Boy is playing. We took my younger children one evening and they had a great night.

Possibly but it really is just a bar with a stage area perched above the market. Was not rowdy the night we were there but not sure what the rules are. There were no children there the night we went.
