BANGKOK BAR

23 Bar & Gallery

The guy behind the legendary dive bar Bar 23, on Sukhumvit Soi 16, sold up, and has now opened this altogether more arty affair near Chinatown. 

The guy behind the legendary dive bar Bar 23, on Sukhumvit Soi 16, sold up, and has now opened this altogether more arty affair near Chinatown. 

Set in an old shop-house on the burgeoning Soi Nana (Cho Why, El Chiringuito), the similarly-titled 23 Bar & Gallery keeps the same focus on cold local beers, basic house pours and a soundrack that flits between 90s Britpop and more Rastafarian sounds.

The walls are lined with the owner's own art (with more exhibitions promised for upstairs starting in April) and while the seating is basic, that just means you can turn your attention to the intriguing hustle and bustle of the street.
