  • Small Bars: Four Places Where Size Doesn't Matter
    Traphic

Traphic

This adorable bar, the width of which can't accommodate two people lying head to toe (which can happen), is decorated in contemporary Asian style and so chill chill. You can hang around the two small tables, sit on the couches or rub elbows standing at the counter. Twenty is a crowd here. The customers and songs (on vinyl) are more farang, but the price is very Thai baan baan.
171 Tanao Rd., Phranakorn, 06-539-2510, 04-052-2723. Open Tue-Sun 4pm-1am.

Say Play

This tiny bar is one of the smallest joints in Soi Chamchan, so don’t bring many friends—and don't tell any strangers about it. The somber black decoration is somewhat in contrast to the bright and casual acoustic pop rock tunes that both amateur and professional musicians play. Friendly vibe and service. Familiar dance songs on Friday and Saturday.
75/1 Soi Chamchan, Sukhumvit 63, 01-269-1345. Open daily 6pm-1am.

Someday

At Someday, every day is filled with good music. You can listen to rare English grooves while lazily sitting back amid the white and bright interior. Food is cheap and very yummy. It’s so small that it may seem invisible if you don’t look carefully for it.

75/2 Ekamai 21, Sukhumvit 63, 01-854-8404, 02-711-6653. Open daily 6pm-1am.

Adhere

This Banglamphoo bar features live blues and jazz belted out by energetic musicians sitting casually in the middle of a group of punters. Try it on weekend nights if you want a warm atmosphere, but it will be hard to get a table as it can pack out with less than 20 people in the place. Mostly it’s for regular customers who love live music. Don’t worry about going there alone as you can easily find someone to talk to.
13 Samsen Rd., Phranakorn, 09-769-4613, ad_here_13@hotmail.com. Open daily 6pm-midnight.

Under the ISO’s goals, venues are encouraged to combine profit, people and the planet in a way that is truly sustainable. Here's why you should pick these five ISO 20121-certified venues for your next conference.
