The old Big Mango Bar in Bangkok just off of Soi 4 (Soi Nana) will reopen in the next week as the M Bar, a sister bar to The M Pub at the Ascott Hotel in Sathorn Road. It will be operated by the same owner of The Pintsman in Silom, formerly the Duke of Wellington.
Major renovations have taken place and upstairs is now open with windows and natural light. It's not a girlie bar so there will be no hookers - at least none working or based on the premises and no drink quotas.
The new owners promise good food, live sport on TV and free pool.
