Even though our Chiang Mai pubs and bars close at midnight, there is a lot of fun to be hand until the witching hour. Chiang Mai is a social city, so there are neighbourhood bars and pubs to be found in every nook and cranny of the city catering to all tastes and pockets.

The way that locals have traditionally enjoyed a tipple is to go to a garden bar and restaurant where friends and family will gather around a food-laden table enjoying beers and whisky as live music played in the background. While these garden pubs are still very popular, the Chiang Mai pubs and bars scene has evolved.

You can find pubs of many nationalities from ye olde English and Irish pubs to American sports bars and Japanese izakaya. There are also chic wine bars, hip crafts beer venues, exclusive cocktail lounges, even single malt and cigar clubhouse and everything in between.

If you are visiting Chiang Mai, take some time to look into where the locals – Thais and expats – go, as we can guarantee you a fun night out.
