This is a great place for some good food. First impression is the car park is a good size! They upgraded to this location about two & a half years ago, having been further up the road towards Tara Pattana in a single unit for maybe five years before that. As you walk in there is a good sized aircon room on your left. There is a large seating area to the right. Although it is inside, it is well ventilated due to the side walls being open on three sides, with roller blind screens if needed. Ok, it looks a bit empty, however these are very hard times, and […]

Not having been there before, or really knowing anything about it, we just went looking for The Players Sports Bar and seeing the Sign from further along Soi Buakhao we then discovered it was the old Butchers Arms. Completely new management now and being The Players Sports Bar, I find it odd that […]

Mini Bar, Soi Khao Talo, Pattaya, Thailand.

This is not just another open fronted single unit bar. Situated on the left going up Soi Khao Noi, opposite the market on the right. This is a very friendly and welcoming place to pop into. A place to drop in with your wife or girlfriend. Very much a meeting place for some of the local community as well as passers by who are either expats or tourists staying nearby. Inside is a pool table with seating at the front and rear. Out front there are tables and chairs one side and a bar with bar stools the other. There is a Quiz Night on every second Wednesday Evening and […]
