What can I say - so disappointed it may close. It's a go to in Bangkok. Cheap drinks, good atmosphere, freindly staff and always someone to chat too - what's not to like. Attracts a good crowd and provided you are not fussy it's 80 bhatt per drink. Cheap even by Thai standards. Understand it is closing soon to make way for development but follow it if it finds a new site.

Yup, this is definitely the cheapest bar I've been to in Bangkok. However, it's more like a tiki bar in the middle of the sidewalk.
There are two rules to the bar 1. Don't drink outside the coloured chain/rope and 2. only number 1 allowed in the toilet. (The bar lovingly calls this "lady pee only"). Only go here if you are expecting a hangover and a good time with strangers!

I read so many good reviews for this pub that I thought I would give it a try.
The place is OK but nothing extraordinary, the beers are not too expensive but as to label them "cheap" is I think a bit of a stretch. There are other places in the area that will serve drinks in the same range of prices.
Although the setting is nice enough it is not stunning and it is very difficult to get hold of one of the few seats that they have.
So, if you are around, you can drop there for a beer, but I do not think it is worth a detour.
