We stopped her for a few drinks and enjoyed the game of pool. It had live music which is always nice, but the quality was sub-optimal. Still, it is nice to have a live music. There indeed is a cat in the bar, but it looked quite ill so we didn't really dare to touch her.An ok spot for a... More

They mix their spirits with local product to save money, end result, bad drinks, and when challenged, it is coupled with aggressive attitude. I enjoyed the 3 hours in hospital, thanks Cat Bar

We went here twice, it is a small bar with lots of atmosphere. Many different beers including Loa dark. Music is on after 10pm, mainly classic country rock with guest appearances.

Don't spend your money here even if it has better music than other bars on the street, "you no order you go" seemed to be the owner woman's only English phrase (two of us had ordered, two were in the bathrooms and 3 just getting a seat, there was only one other customer in the bar) we of course left...

My girlfriend and I spend two nights in Chiang Rai. We wandered up and down the bar street a couple times then ended up at the Cat Bar. I have nothing bad to say - only good.

We stopped in for a quick beer, and ended up staying until closing. The live band were ok, but when some customers joined them for a jam session, it turned in to a good night. Drinks prices are average for the area.

Dropped in for an afternoon beer or two and politely asked if I could use the free pool table. The answer was,"no." " it may scare away customers". Charming, not.

Cat the owner was very rude to us and refused to serve us the second round of drinks. Considering this was our first visit at this bar, her behaviour was inexplicable. She may have had a bad day, but this kind of behaviour toward the customers cannot be justified. Also the drinks are more expensive than other bars on the... More

We stopped by for a quick beer & a game pool. The owners were great a welcoming. We ended up staying all evening playing pool with Sam the owner & a couple guys from Holland. Around 10:00 Sam players guitar & sings. Anyone is welcome to join. Great little bar!!
