Hidden down a small side street off Soi 13 in an adobe mud-brick house is Baa(n) Din bar. This cosy bar has the atmosphere of a Thai beach bar with cushions on the floor, thatch roofing and the signature “brainwash” bucket (literally alcohol and mixer in a bucket). Anthony, the friendly owner, and his crew are not only super welcoming, they also make great cocktails!
Likely the most hipster bar on our list is Yayee rooftop bar, located on top of the boutique Yayee Hotel. This to-be-seen location is the ideal place to watch the sunset over Doi Suthep mountain. Yayee is owned by a Thai celebrity and attracts doting fans, high-so Thai’s and the expat crowd. Yayee has a wide selection of drinks including beers, wines and cocktails along with stylish culinary creations.
