BANGKOK BARS & CLUBS:
Nerd

The buzz: Get ready for the revenge of the nerds. Standing across from the desperately popular Nang Len, this two-story watering hole is yet another pretender looking to make its mark on the Ekkamai block.

The décor: There’s not much going on here. The setting is pretty no-frills yet still manages to be cozy. On the first floor, a handful of low-rise tables and comfy couches are loosely scattered around, providing you with plenty of elbow room. If you want to exercise your elbows in another way, their pool table is on the second floor.

The music: Expect the expected. Here, house bands take turns dishing up familiar radio-friendly hits you can listen to at pretty much every other neighboring Ekkamai and Thonglor bar. But the lineup is at least relatively indie, and sets include cover versions of Groove Riders, Bee Peerapat and Jetset’er. During the intervals, a DJ spins local hip hop ranging from Buddha Bless to Thaitanium.

The crowd: This newbie is still pretty much empty. Most of the customers are the owners’ friends and those 30-something professionals who prefer to sit and sip in a relatively relaxing atmosphere rather than boogie the night away.

The price: Whiskey B1,000-1,300, beer B120, mixers B50.

Why you’ll come back: When Nang Len is too crowded and you are looking for a place where you can breathe, Nerd serves as a good alternative…minus the eye candy, though.
