Fat Gutz Bar Saloon Thong Lor

Live Music Bar in Bangkok

Fat Gutz is currently closed.

Fat Gutz Bar in Thong Lor has a huge reputation for such a small place, and has outlasted many other bars and restaurants in this hip and competitive area of Bangkok. Decked out all in black, metal anchors and hooks reminiscent of a Dockers yard hang from the ceiling, whilst the low lights and vintage furniture hint at a speakeasy vibe from the 1920s.

With interesting signature cocktails and a cool yet eclectic crowd, Fat Gutz Bar in Bangkok is known throughout the city, but it is most famous for two things: live music and fish and chips.

Live music is played here every night from 21:00, but if you want a seat you should get here early because the dimensions of the bar are very, very small. Five tables are squeezed into the narrow space, with standing room around the bar or at the back. The live band plays under the stairs in a cubby hole space that barely leaves room to move, but the lack of personal space is excellent at achieving one thing – it gets everyone feeling part of the scene and as such the atmosphere is excellent on weekends when the bar is full all night.

Feel free to request a song (a tip would be highly welcomed by the band), or even get up on stage and sing yourself, especially on Tuesdays when it is ‘jam night’. Music ranges from blues, to cover versions of rock standards and a little bit of soul too.

The fish and chips is served as two beer battered fish fillets cooked until the white flesh is flakey without being dry, along with thick-cut chips for 450 baht. It is a huge portion that will satisfy most and, in fact, could easily be shared. Fresh, raw oysters served on a bed of ice are also popular at Fat Gutz with six large shells selling for 660 baht.  

Their cocktail list features some interesting martinis, and we recommend the lancastria, a sweet martini of vodka, sauvignon blanc, litchi, lemon and a flowing candy floss tail that spills over the side of the glass. Select beers are offered on a ‘buy three, get one free’ deal and are delivered in a bucket of ice. 

Fat Gutz Bangkok was the first bar designed by Ashley Sutton, who then went on to open the excellent Bookshop, Mr Jones’ Orphanage and Iron Fairies. He has since sold all of his fantastical creations but the cool spirit lives on. If you are in the mood for wholesome food, unique cocktails and some kick-ass live music, Fat Gutz Bar in Bangkok is the place to visit.
