This a great spot on the river for a few beers, the views are amazing you can get some great photos of the sun setting. It is small so it can get busy.

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

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.
