This is the best place to taste the original Thai Taste but also many choices of fabulous dishes. Combination of Northern, Southern and Central Thai foods together with European and Chinese foods
Favorite Dish: "Kaeng Tai Pla" and "Kaeng Lueng" the 30s years experience chef cooks these special Hot&Spicy soups as original taste especially when we eat these soups with steam rice. How could you say, if you come to Thailand but never taste the original Thai Food. Moreover the BIG BOYS BAND here is the great band ever, if you love 60's 70's - 90's...this is the best place to enjoy the music and some dancing.
This is my favourite pub in Thailand it used to be at Langsuan Road, unfortunately it had been closed for a year. Now it is open again in Ruamrudee Road in the area of Plaza Athenee Hotel, actually at Atenee Residence Tower.
The band is great cover band. Nice to have the place to hang out again.
Favorite Dish: Thai Food is great here....OMG & it's a nice place to enjoy drinking and listen to the music.
LATEST: Since 2008, Ad Maker had moved. It is now located out of the centre of the city, in the neighbourhood of Bangna. Sigh....
Tucked away nicely along Soi Lang Suan (where there is now a whole road of restaurants, both economical & upmarket), you would not have figured that Ad Makers actually serve great Thai dishes. Came here on a recommendation of a local Thai friend and was genuinely blown away by the fantastic food.
Very popular with expats. The outside suggests a more elegant venue than the beer hall-style operation within. There is a good bar, but that seems to be ignored in favour of the many bare wooden tables around the various areas. The food comes from an extensive menu which is predominantly Thai, although there are a few farang (westerner) dishes, including a pig hock, on offer.
Great place to chill-out. Live music starts from 8pm. The music is normally provided by one of the better Bangkok bands playing good covers with a strong rock bias. Possibly only one in the world where you can enjoy great Thai food along with great music!
Open daily (except Sun): 5:30pm - 1:30am (to 2:00am on Fri & Sat)
Favorite Dish: The Thai Hot & Spicy Soup (No, not Tom Yum) really packs a punch with lots of Thai peppers.
The Thai Pandan Leaf Chicken was great as well and so was the (western styled) fried bacon rolled sausages.
This joint is a post work haunt for the Thai office teams to unwind after a hard days slog - slogging in front of their emails, mobile phone calls and ongoing meetings that don’t seem to achieve anything.
Because it is your relationships with your mates what really gets stuff sorted and achieved in Bangkok.
After the local working lads and lasses have hung around in the office until the boss goes home, they get themselves down to the nearest boozer to have a "len" (joke / play) and "sanuk" (enjoyment) that makes the Thai world go round.
Many Bangkok Thais live with their folks till they get married, or if they are upcountry origin they can usually afford only a small apartment / condo room. You need to be out a lot to really enjoy yourself. So Ad Makers is dead good place for sorting this social need out. It is the Thai equivalent of the work boozer / local.
Ad Makers... the name gives it away - though "nobbie" ad agency folk are now upping their ante and would rarely be seen dead in a raucous, down to earth, drinking eating and music venue such as this.
Food and drink. And a live band that is pretty barmy and kicks on until Bangkok's Finest hoof us out at around 1.30am to 2.00am. And more alcohol promoters than you could wave a stick at.. all in whacky alcohol promoting uniforms, Johny Walker black, Chivas gold, Heineken green, Tiger blue, Guinness black again. They all target the Ad Makers "local" to drink as much as possible and enjoy their wares. They often succeed. ...particularly on a Friday night.
Before ten it looks a bit tame. After 10.30? Oh my word! And without lasses of the evening promoting their stock that often clog up many other evening venues.
By 9.30pm you should be able to tell if it is going to kick off or whether you need to get away to another booze and "sanuk it" joint.
Favorite Dish: Mainly Thai bar meals - if there is such a thing...
Imagine chicken in a basket... right? now imagine Thailand.
Imagine pants chicken nuggets with ketchup... yup? Now imagine Thailand and Isaan sausage. Far nippier, far zippier.
No Walkers Crisps..Thailand again. But they do have these funny similar to pork scratchings things.
