“Brilliant would be at home in NT Australia”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

What a wonderful little place. No pretentious B.S what you see is what you get.
The drinks are cheap 80baht for wild turkey :-D
I spent half the night just looking at all the strange items from skulls to bones to all manner of strange stuff.
If you are in Bangkok it is a must see
Open 1700 - 2300 Mon - Sat Soi 11 just near Nana BTS

“Awesome little bar, must check out”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Attended here as I found out about it on TA.. It was a great find, just off soi and is a bar filled with locals, ex pats and tourists. Normal that price of drinks and its a nice change from the normal drinking bars of bangkok.
A must see!

“Cheap and Fun...Can't be missed!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

You haven't truly visited Bangkok if you haven't strolled some of the shadier streets off Sukhumvit road near the Nana BTS station. And tucked neatly on a side alley off Soi 11 is Cheap Charlies. It's a cheap beer stand (read: no indoor seating, no AC) where one bartender slings cold Leo, Chang, and Singha in old koozies. It is the epitome of a simple outdoor dive bar and it is a requisite for me on any trip to Bangkok. Sit, drink, and watch the passers-by.

“My FAVORITE bar in Bangkok, if not the world”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Cheap Charlies is right next to Suk11 Hotel on Soil 11 in Sukhamvit at the BTS Nana. An outdoor only corner bar its a classic with expats. This is the kind of bar I want in my hometown, as my corner pub. Its got charm for days, an easy going attitude, fab ecclectic decor and cheap (of course) drinks. A great place to meet people and while away the hours. I loved it so much I insisted that we come back for a drink on our return journey home through Bangkok.

“So random.”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Literally no place to sit (unless you take a folding chair from underneath the bar). The place was crowded with all sorts of weird decorations on the bar and a model train that ran around the top. The drinks were cheap (compared to other bars in the area). It was fun to just sit and have a couple drinks while watching the street come alive at night time.

Stop by if you're in the area. Might as well.
