For live music beyond the usual bands covering songs from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Maroon 5, try Brick Bar. It’s large, dark and cavernous, featuring two floors, pool tables and a reasonably priced menu. The crowd is a mixture of Thais, from punks to middle-aged men, and a few foreigners. A variety of bands play here every night, performing everything from ska and rock to jazz and blues in both Thai and English.
265 Khao San Road. Tel: +66 (0)2 629 4477. To get to Brick Bar, head to Buddy Lodge and walk through to the very back of the building
