The Saxophone Pub is hands down the best Jazz pub in Bangkok. Their excellent live bands are top-notch and their food is excellent. Nothing better to have than good live Jazz music with good food. If you have never been to a Jazz pub in Thailand then this should be on the top of your list.
The Saxophone Pub
They have regular jazz player such as Koh Saxman or Mr Saxman. The man is absolutely brilliant and very talented yet very humble when you speak to him. Rhythm Nation, JRP little big band and Bangkok Connection Band are well known in Bangkok. Below is a video on Youtube so you listen to the quality of the jazz. The music video is by Mr Saxman. You can find them close to the BTS Victory Monument Station close to the Victory Monument.
Jazz and Blues with a good ambiance cannot be beaten. Best to go early or to call them as it does get full very quickly. They open daily 06.00 PM – 01.30 AM. The Saxophone Pub & Restaurant was opened in 1987 and was awarded with the Best Pub in Thailand Award, from Metro Magazine, United Kingdom since 1999 till the present day. The Saxophone Pub & Restaurant has become well known and famous by many expatriates and visitors to Thailand.
If you are looking for high quality live bands with excellent Thai dishes along with a variety of cocktails then this is the place. Note that this restaurant is spread over 2 floors. Likewise the top floor is the best and has a good view of the bands. The seating is Japanese Style which is unique to the pub.
This place is sensational. Just a short BTS ride away from the tourist trap, and you are here. Transitioning from the crowds of tourists, you can party with the locals instead. If you love live music, you will love this place.
When there quite late at night with a couple of friends, the atmosphere and band were amazing. I absolutely loved the music played, and the saxophone skill was breathtaking. What a fantastic place! Moreover, the design is very cool. It is a large place but feels very intimate. Additionally, the food is delicious, the music is fantastic, and the prices are very reasonable – 170 for draft beer, with most dishes ranging from 180 to 250.
Having been around for so long now, I make it a point to visit every time. Especially on a Thursday night when the Big Band plays, they are simply brilliant. Although the interiors are all dated, the service, food, and ambiance make up for it. The vibe is brilliant, and the service is also attentive and fast.
This place is old but very much alive! It offers good service and a large selection of food and drinks in this historical live music joint at Victory Monument. In particular, there is an excellent blues group performing around 10pm, with a less good pop/funk group later in the night. Therefore, it’s recommended to check the program on their Facebook page. However, one thing is for sure – you will have a fun music time! Enjoy!
I visited this Pub with a strong recommendation for people who love Jazz music. It is a simple yet full-of-character pub that is easy to find at the famous Victory Monument area. After dinner, it would be best to listen to different groups play their genres over a glass of beer. This place is mostly patronized by foreigners. Likewise see also the Jazz Happens! as well as the Bamboo Jazz Bar.
