“Doing justice to the blues”
Review of Boy Blues Bar

Reviewed 18 August 2017 via mobile

We had a great night here last night. No entry fee, well priced drinks and three good bands. Too easy.
I love the blues.
The players obviously love the blues, too.
The feel for the music was convincing and the guys can really play!
I don't know his name but the lead guitar/vocalist in the second band has the best shtick since Buddy Guy. Entertaining, and you have to be really good to get away with it.
I went to sleep last night with great music running through my head.

Having visited this bar before on previous trips I had to go again as its one of the best blues bars you will find. Entry is free and due to its location just above the night market it attracts passing visitors who can hear the music. Various bands turn up to play and ex pats join in from time to time. Boy is a charming man, hugely talented, and his range of music tends to favour Hendrix style. His base and drummer are superb also. Super atmosphere and highly recommended.

This is the perfect place if you're looking for a chill setting to listen to some really good music over a few drinks. The musicians are extremely talented and know how to entertain their audience. Definitely check it out!

We stumbled across this place - or rather heard it as some serious guitar playing drifted across the surrounding night market - and found a pretty decent level of musicians playing an open mic night.
By the look of it, some are regulars in a local scene and we caught one of the singers giving it some again at another nearby venue the next night.
The beers are inexpensive, entry is free and the crowd eclectic. I'd recommend this over the trashy and fairly pointless lady boy cabaret show a short walk away.

Spent a few hours over a couple of nights at this fantastic little bar with awesome music!
Nice casual relaxed atmosphere, cheap drinks and really really great music. We had actually forgotten this bar existed and then stumbled upon it again when walking around Kalare markets late in the evening.
Once you hear that music you can't can't help but follow it upstairs and you will be very glad you did. It's one of the few places in Chiang Mai where you can go and listen to good quality live music, have a few drinks and be totally relaxed.
Recommend highly if you like good live music.
