The Balcony often has special themed dinner nights, and I was lucky enough to visit on their Pasta night this month. Prepared by the staff in front of you according to taste, this was well presented and delicious. Balcony attracts a large gay crowd, but noticeably well patronized by straight people these days due to its vibrant and friendly atmosphere.... More

Good gay bar / restaurant in soi 4 opposite The Telephone which is the other main gay bar in this street. Has nice outside seating area. Watch out for special deals on drinks and happy hours. Its one of the place to be seen and to observe in this gay street. bar staff efficient and friendly.

In the heart of the District of the Bay Area it's very cool bar open and has very good drinks and specials would definitely recommend checking it out if you have a chance ask for a bartender named Jeff he's really really cool and I will definitely hook you up

I have been to this bar a few times before, and it's always fun to sit and watch the passing parade from the "balcony" which is actually right on the street. The staff are all friendly and funny, if sometimes a bit pushy and flirtatious. Drinks are quite reasonable, especially during happy hour, and the food was very good, and... More

The staff here were extremely friendly and funny and the area itself was highly recommended by a (self-proclaimed heterosexual) guy who was drinking in the area our hotel was, where his got constantly pestered by women if you wanted to enjoy a couple of drinks and some food. The drinks were much cheaper here as it was apparently happy hour... More

Balcony is one of the most popular gay pubs in the area and definitely worth the visit. The staff is funny, very friendly and service minded. The prices are low, especially during the happy hour. The clientele is a mixture of young Thai gay boys and gay Westeners with occasional elderly farangs hitting on young guys and confused tourists coming... More

I visited this bar/restaurant twice, to be honest I didn't experience some of the negativity I've read in some reviews. On the second visit I decided to eat here and I'm glad I did. There is a large menu with food varying from local Thai dishes through other Asian dishes and even an 'English' menu. We decided to mix and... More

I've been coming here every month for the last 10 years, so I know the bar well. While the drinks remain cheap, the food acceptable, and the atmosphere fun, the service has gone down hill. The waiters who have been there years remain friendly and fun, but the new guys are rude tip-hunters who don't quite understand the friendly ethos... More

A chilled haven in the middle of madness! Very friendly stalk and owner. Beer and spirits very reasonably priced. Free WiFi as everywhere in BK. A good place to visit, they do food but we weren't rating, just drinking!!!!

Soi 4 gets reviewed as a gay venue but this just sin't accurate. I've been several times and every time the lines regarding gay and straight get blurred even more. Imagine that in Thailand lol. Sri 4 remains a great place to sit and have drinks with friends. There's outdoor and indoor seating. Balcony and the establishment opposite it, Telephone,... More

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
