Night Bars?

Hi all,

We have been here for couple of days and we cant find some decent place to sit and get some beer and have fun. All we see (no offence) are lonely white hear man with local girls. Any suggestions where we can spend our time during the day from 21.00 to 24.00 ?

We expected something interesting to happen because of the Chinese new year but nothing special happened. Are we missing something or chiang mai have nothing to offer at night for us (28 years old)?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Cheers!

Try aound the nimman area. WarmUp is a good place.

Another place is Goodview and Riverside on Nawarat.

Try Riverside first. Food is 'ok' but the crowd gets younger as the night goes on. Best of luck.

I agree - head over the river for some live music and a good atmosphere. As you'd expect The Riverside is right on the river and The Goodview is next door. Both have live music and it's really nice sitting out watching the river.

I agree, riverside area, but get there early or you will be standing in a line waiting to get in.

The bulk of Chinese New Year's happenings go on around Waroros Market, but mostly food, music and shops. CNY is not like the Julian New Year, no countdown and fireworks, more about family and friends than partying.

There are several restaurant/ bars around the night market which tend to not be 'hostess bars'

Gekko Garden Intersection SriDonchai Rd & Kamphangdin Rd, is a bar very popular with ex pats if it is just good cheap food and drinks you are looking for (no music etc)
