Cool bar

We met up with some friends here and really enjoyed the live music. The beers were also on offer and super cheap which was a bonus!

The bands playing there were amazing. We were coming there for a few days while being in Chiang Mai. Best place in town for a rock fan!

At last a proper rock bar! The place seems to get busy from 10 pm and the heavier bands seem to play after this time. We went there twice and the bands played covers, including Metallica and Guns N Roses. Beer and rock what more could you want?

Great place with great live bands. Found out about it from the guitarist playing in the Loco Elvis Mexican restaurant (nice burrito). He was playing at Pentatonic later that night.

I was sitting at Zoe next door, when I heard Master of Puppets being played live. Immediately walked over and a whole Metallica set was being played. Spent the next 30 mins with a beer in my hand, head banging away. This bar is barebones, perfect for enjoying the music. If you're a metal fan or just love good music,... More
