Brick Bar

Live Music Club on Khao San

Brick Bar is an immensely fun live music joint on Khao San Road that proves this area has far more than just sunburnt foreigners dressed in their best singles and flip flops. Known throughout Bangkok, this bar is a bit of an institution – although it’s probably the only venue on the kilometre-long nightlife strip where you’ll be well outnumbered by the locals.

There are a host of regular bands playing here, but the house band – with a larger than life front singer – usually has the crowd throwing a few shapes and singing along with their high energy Thai indie, ska, reggae and pop covers.

The large basement room at Brick Bar is air-conditioned and seating options are generous with long benches set up for groups – kind of German beer hall-style. To really make the most of your night, arrive early and grab a table downstairs in front of the stage – otherwise you might be ushered upstairs to a table tucked away in a dark corner… not so much fun. After midnight the place is literally jumping to the six-piece house band, when standing on the tables is not only tolerated – it’s encouraged!

It’s mostly young, care-free university students who flock to this long-running live music institution every night, but one step just outside and you’re in backpacking central. This means that the locals aren’t afraid to rub shoulders with tourists or expats; they know exactly what they getting themselves in for by coming to this part of Bangkok.

As with any Thai-style club, it’s the norm to order a bottle of whisky, ice and mixers to secure a table for the night. It also works out a lot cheaper than drinking 250-baht-a-glass cocktails all night, especially if you’ve got a group. Other drinks like beers and shots are a bit pricey, but the live music and overall happy vibes at Brick Bar make it so much better than sipping that warm 60-baht Chang on the street.

Entry to Brick Bar is free on weekdays but it costs 300 baht to go in on weekends when it gets really rammed (sometimes there’s even a queue to get in). Find Brick bar on the main Khao San Road tucked away behind McDonald’s and The Buddy Lodge Hotel.
