Any of the Irish/English pubs that have the 99 baht pint happy hours...just don't buy a pint between you and share it around !

Are you looking for the best or the cheapest.

If you are going for cheap I would suggest staying away from tourist bars altogether or doing your drinking during happy hour.

Thai cafes (those used by thais) are cheaper than tourist bars although you need to be prepared for little or no English to be spoken. There are a couple right at the far end of Sukhumvit soi 4, there are also a couple that I know of at the end of Saphan Khu Alley (off Rama 4 road lumphini).

If you are looking for nice bars although not always cheap DodgerIrishinLondon posted link above should help you.

And if you truly are trying to budget....buy some beer/whiskey and keep it in your hotel so that you can "pre game" before heading out.

Saxophone Bar/Restaurant is excellent. If its economy bars then the Khao Sans Rd area is much cheaper than Sukhumvit.

Or why not do as the Russians/E Europeans do in Pattaya buy beer/vodka from Family Mart and 7/11 with free straws thrown in lol

If you state what area your staying in it would help, then I'm sure someone could give you advise on that area. No point in travelling around the city because beer is a few baht cheaper somewhere else!!

It depends where you're staying but if it's Sukhumvit the Pickled Liver is a nice pub. www.thepickledliver.com
