Sheepshank is composed of two venues: the Sheepshank Public House and Dock No.13 bar. They share the same space at Phra Arthit pier on the river.

The bar is open air and beer focused. The restaurant has windows and doors to be more climate controlled, and has the kitchen. They both share the dark wood + classic nautical theme and décor.
