Beer Bars in Bangkok

The beer bars are the perfect place to relax, watch the people and street life, play pool, meet other tourists and expats – and of course also to have a drink with a Thai bar girl. The atmosphere is much more easy-going than in the go go bars where you’ll constantly be approached by the girls asking for drinks.

You can find these beer bars mainly on Sukhumvit Soi 4 and Soi 22. Most bars open from as early as noon, but of course the younger and more attractive ladies are still sleeping at that time (no joke), so you can expect them to start working at around 7pm.

Still, it doesn’t really matter at what time you go – in the afternoon you’ll usually get better conversations (fewer customers and quieter music) and happy hour prices, and at night you get more and sexier girls and in many bars also live music.

  • Prices: Most beer bars in Bangkok have happy hours until 7pm with bottled beers for 90 Baht or draft beer (pint) for 100 Baht. After that, beers are in the 120-140 Baht range and spirits (like gin tonic or red label soda) in the 150-160 Baht range. Lady drinks will cost you between 120-180 Baht, and if you want to take one of the ladies outside, you’ll have to pay the bar fine of generally 500-700 Baht, plus the price for the girl, usually 1,000 Baht for short time and 2,000-2,500 Baht for long time.
  • So yes, these prices are significantly higher than elsewhere in Thailand, especially in Isaan where you usually get big bottles for these prices, and that’s mainly due to the increasing property rental prices in Bangkok these days.
