B.A.D. 2023 awards – beer bars highlighted

Bangkok After Dark awards were released for 2023 by BK Magazine. Congratulations to all the winners, and the list makes for a great list of places to explore for Bangkok’s nightlife.

Highlights include 30 taps serving beer from over 17 countries + green space at a traditional Thai style house in the Ekkamai area.
NOTE: the only beer bar with more taps is Craft on Soi 23, boasting 40 taps of beer.

Not listed in the article, but worth pointing out: Mikkeller also has a monthly running group that makes for an excellent excuse to hit up the bar the first Saturday of each month. A little 5km run with like minded athletes, and then trying out the beer specials (most often by Lurvig from Norway).

Best Pub: The Londoner

Highlights include: Bangkok’s oldest BrewPub, full menu, and cigar and whisky nights.

Also important to note is that they brew their own beer on premises. Fresh beer in a traditional British-style pub makes for a great choice for a night out or a bit of day drinking. As noted in the article, The Londoner is not located in the central Sukhumvit area, which can actually be a good thing.
