Bangkok has some expensive bars, some very expensive bars and some cheap bars. But if you are looking for the cheapest bars, then you won’t have to search far and wide. One of the names which easily come to mind is that of Cheap Charlie’s.
Cheap Charlie’s is a bar which seems to have been made in an hour by putting together certain trashy wood from the attic. Yet, it offers an ambience which is unique and thrilling in its own way. Far from being posh or sophisticated, this place is actually anti-posh and anti-sophisticated. Even its bathroom will leave you with a nervous smile, yet fill you up with an experience which you wouldn’t want to take in the first place, but wouldn’t regret once you have taken it. The chief reason why locals gather here is the cheapness of the beers. For a foreign tourist, the place has multiple lures.
Your Bangkok nightlife tours may also take you to Molly’s Bar. It is another cheap bar where the ambience is very laidback and quaint (almost medieval). Do not expect upgraded couches and AC rooms! It is a place which has the colonial fragrance to it and the noisy atmosphere is pretty much like that dancing scene in Titanic where Kate Winslet stood up right on her toe.
Old Leng is another cheap bar which looks like some notorious den and where signboards blur out as folk music fades amidst laughter and shouts. It is extremely famous for the Sangsom whiskey and also a great place to hang out with a crush.
