Paap Pa Yon

Another funky nightspot that has opened up in Chiang Mai that will impress most night revellers. With a black and white concept, decorated with loads of stills – many from part owner and movie-star Ananda Everingham’s films – and an assortment of antique movie gadgets such as amazing old movie cameras, there’s plenty to look at while you eat and drink. Another part owner is also a movie director (also owner of Pinocchio), hence the theme. There are different zones for you to choose; outside around a stylish cocktail bar, or in the air-conditioned restaurant. They have a large Thai menu with very good Thai dishes, as well as a great selection of drinks. Every Thursday there’s a Ladies Night and cocktails are only 99 baht. Live music plays most nights – theme music from both Thai and English films sung by very capable singers. Paap Pa Yon is pretty laid back, and a solid choice for a casual meal or a few drinks. The prices are great too.


On Super Highway on side heading to Doi Suthep, as you pass the San Dek intersection, stick to the left and stay there until you see Paap Pa Yon on your left just before the Mae Jo intersection.
