Excellent venue for live music! We caught a local singer with a powerhouse voice supported on acoustic guitar and bass! This was followed by a local jazz band who ripped it up!

This place has an really great atmosphere and has some great live music. What a shame the drinks are so expensive, more than anywhere else we went in Bangkok. We would've spent the evening there had it not been for the drinks prices.

Walk 10 minutes from Khaosan road to Brown Sugar and it Couldn't be more different. From 90 baht cocktails and bar to bar blaring music, to 250+ baht cocktails and smooth Jazz. Khaosan road is great but this was a nice change. Very talented musicians here and the cocktails were delicious. They stick a 10% + service charge on though... More

Went with some friends on a Saturday night at 830PM. Place was completely packed by 930 so make sure you get there fast if you want a table. Service was absolutely horrible, slow, unattentive and careless. The music was great so I guess thats the only reason people go here. Pricey drinks for the location and atmosphere.

I was been on a Wednesday and there was a thai band playing jazz. It was a good moment, excellent music and good food except pizza as it was normal (I'm Italian so I pretend too much for pizza 😊). Price very high, too expensive

We went on Saterday evening and had a great time. The music was done by a Thai group when we arrived a bit late after dinner, but they were fantastically talented.

Good music, mediocre/bad service, and very very pricey drinks! Food was delivered wrong twice, good thing the great singer made up for it!

The Brown Sugar was very close to our hotel. We enjoyed a great dinner, opting for several menu items and sharing. The drinks were fabulous and the music was rocking.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
