Cheap Charlies, Bangkok
It's hard to describe this bar - you just need to visit it really!
It is nice and cheap (I'm guessing tht's where the name comes from!) and is basically a wooden 'lean to' structure with a bar stuck on the corner of a side street on Suk 11. The bar is decorated with an eclectic collection of items.
This is a great place to sit and have a few beers, while wathing the world go by.
I'm not sure wether I want to add this tip as this place is one of my favourite drinking spots and it is very small and would be spoilt if it got too crowded.
Basically this is on a small Soi just off Sukhumvit Soi 11 and is just a counter and a few stools on a corner of the alley. It is very popular with expats and as the name suggests it is pretty cheap to buy drinks here. Satit (the owner) has decorated the bar with an amazing variety of bits and pieces and it can be tricky seeing thru them to get served!
This is not a place for lively nigtlife as you are basically out on the street and it closes earlier than most bars (also it is not open on Sundays). There are also no bar girls here.
