Lovely view, local charm, good food, cheap beer, friendly and fast service. It hangs right over the river, boats bustling but while you eat the local food.

Small and a little cramped, but lovely for afternoon drinks right on the river. Prices are good. Service is good and friendly. We decided to stay for dinner. The menu is quite small, but then so is their kitchen. There was no vegetarian on the...More

I have been to Jack's Bar on the Chao Phraya a couple of times and highly recommend going. Food is fine, but it is the location (and cold beer) that people come for. Nestled next to the Shangri-La Hotel, Jack's is a local, Thai style...More

Good - taste of food 음식맛은 괜찮은데 Bad - expensive more than i think 생각보다 비싸요 분위기는 허름한 로컬 바 같은 느낌이지만 맥주가 100바트이상이라 조금 비쌉니다. 음식은 나름 괜찮았습니다.

Nice little pub overhanging the river. Only a few blocks off the elevated train and off the beaten path. Great spot to take a break from exploring the city and watching the river traffic go by. Cold Thai lagers and a decent menu of foods....More

The staff were very welcoming; it appeared that there were no tables left however in a few seconds they had a table setup for us. Not a fancy place but cool atmosphere and great value. A nice break from the higher prices of the surrounding...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop

This little place doesn't actually have an English name, we nicknamed it 'Jack's Bar'. It's in a tourist area (next door to Shangri-La Hotel) on the river.
