The Fun Pub

Average Reviews


Enjoy a drink, have dinner, meet some old friends, make some new ones - upstairs or downstairs, It's always fun at The Balcony we are open from 5:30 PM - Late every day.

Our two terraces are the most popular spots in the soi to grab a drink and to see and be seen in Bangkok's gayest soi.

Inside you can relax and dine in air-conditioned comfort at our table seating or pull up a stool at the bar.

For a change of pace try the upstairs bar where you can experience the excitement of Soi 4 from a new height and try your hand at karaoke.

We always have something special for public holidays and special events, and our cabaret nights are a regular event that everyone looks forward to - see what's on for details.

Lovely bar - very attentive staff, and a trustworthy option for a few beers in what could be an intimidating street at its busiest. Went multiple times during our stay.

nice chill drinking place before crazy party at DJ station.Love the alcohol selection especially the jugs! really affordable prices as well.Love the attentive staff, and just how friendly the people are in this lane.It was the first time I felt really accepted for who I am, back in 2016!! when I was still in college, visiting Bangkok for the first time.

This is a night bar and club to sit and enjoy food and drinks. There are indoor and out door so customers can smoke and interact with people walking up and down the aisle.The food is very nice especially western menu that I ordered. For this price, it is filling you up.The live music is also performed indoor so customers have options to attend.

Great place in Silom for a drink, a dance, after a show in the nearby bars or some food. I really liked the atmosphere. Someone with a very good taste did all the (Christmas) decorations inside and outside. Good terrace to watch the people and nice AC inside. Best reached by MRT, no parking available.

Such inattentive service - waiters too busy in the street trying to get people in here rather than looking after the patrons already buying drinks. The bar over the road is much better, it’s called Circus.

Fun bar with okay service and not bad food. Great place to sit and people watch before heading on to Soi 2. Prices do appear to be getting higher and higher but still not bad value

Amazing place with great music. You can pay by card. The staff is helpful and easy going, you definitely feel welcome. I decided to spend my birthday evening at Balcony Pub Bar and the waiters took it seriously and prepared candles, ice cream and free birthday drink. Thank you guys for this unforgettable evening! Strongly recommended. Ying is the BEST!!!

We went here 19 years ago and wanted to renew old memories. We are not a gay couple and it did not offend us that it is listed as gay, as it was very clean tidy and friendly.

It's a place to sit and chill but if you want to dance to can. The price is good. The singer sings live. There are many foods to choose. But if we want to sing, there is karaoke on the second floor. There are a lot of people during the weekend. Good service staff, friendly, everyone and can speak English.

I have been many times and was impressed with the way of their staff look after the customers.The staff were so kind, friendly and easy to talk with beside, the atmosphere was great especially inside. The bartender was also very kind, nice and they were good at conversation. I enjoyed the food especially the spring rolls and the drinks so much that was so good and delicious. That was a good experience! I’ll come here again.

Used to be a good bar in the past. Staff was always polite and caring.I came here 10 years.But now I‘m done.Staff is standing all together infront of the bar and smoking.Nobody assign you a table or is attending to you. I was just standing there watching people to see if someone leaves to get a table. But then they gave it to a group with 3 because they think the will make more profit.Better support small bars down the street

A waiter named “Pom” tried to insert coins in my mouth, because I didn’t gave him a tip. It was too much and unbearable. This considered that is a big violation for me. I tried to find CC Cam just to get the evidence and report to the officers, sadly there wasn’t any around the bar. The manager tried to calm me down by saying that this guy will be immediately fired. So I’ll check around later for that!!!

Used to be great but gone downhill in recent years. Been going there since 2009, the bar staff used to be very entertaining. The oldest serving barman is now the opposite... He is very unfriendly. I stopped going here... 🙁

First night here and decided to enjoy the evening. I had read some good reviews about the balcony bar so decided to go for drinks.I had not yet finished my second drink when a waiter or maybe the boss came over and walked away with my reciptes.. a little later another waiter came back with my bill.I had not asked for the bill and was going to have another.Rude and reuined my night I won't be going back.

I really like the Balcony bar . Great affordable foods and great music. The two bartenders there ,Mark and Nuey work hard and are very pleasant to customers but there's a new wannabe bartender there that's very rude to customers. I think the management needs to reconsider his position there . Put him upstairsnot behind the bar. He escalates tensions and arguments.

We went here for karaoke. So at the second floor there's a big room with 2 screens and you can sing with pick songs from YouTube. But because you shared room with other guests each group have to turn the mic after 2 songs. Drinks starts from 70baht

Nice place. But avoid weekends when that show starts. U can not talk outside. Because they male the music so loud it is impossible to talk to each other. Staff not care at all when music is too loud. They not like it and close their ears. It is really painful outside.When I wanna see that show I go inside. Outside I sit for drinks and talk. But impossible.But other bars want my money as well. So bye

One of the better gay bars in this area. Sit at the bar for good/cheap drinks and a nice view of the show.

Cute little bar with seats facing on the street so you get to watch everyone who passes around. Drinks and service is good. Servers are friendly

This bar is good to people-watch and soaked up the gay atmosphere in silom soi 4 which is a street of gay bars and restaurants.It is great place for those who travel alone to get acquainted with people from different countries. That being said, a lot customers go there with their partners.They have a great selection of cocktails and my favorite is cosmopolitan and kamikaze. if cocktails is not your thing then you can have beers/wines.Not a lot of people eat here but the food I ordered was pretty tasty - Papaya Salad and Minced Chicken with Basel.
