Stopped in here on the off chance and stayed until they closed. Cat is really lovely and made us feel very welcome. Pool table is free and I ended up jamming with Sam, Cat's husband too. Nice place to chat to new friend over a friendly game

I absolutely love this bar. The owners are so sweet, and the cats are precious. All of them are rescue, and it is so lovely they have a haven at this bar. The location is perfect, right in the middle of the nightlife area of chiang rai, and at night Sam the owner plays live music which is awesome. They... More

We stopped her for a few drinks and enjoyed the game of pool. It had live music which is always nice, but the quality was sub-optimal. Still, it is nice to have a live music. There indeed is a cat in the bar, but it looked quite ill so we didn't really dare to touch her.An ok spot for a... More

They mix their spirits with local product to save money, end result, bad drinks, and when challenged, it is coupled with aggressive attitude. I enjoyed the 3 hours in hospital, thanks Cat Bar

We went here twice, it is a small bar with lots of atmosphere. Many different beers including Loa dark. Music is on after 10pm, mainly classic country rock with guest appearances.

Don't spend your money here even if it has better music than other bars on the street, "you no order you go" seemed to be the owner woman's only English phrase (two of us had ordered, two were in the bathrooms and 3 just getting a seat, there was only one other customer in the bar) we of course left...

My girlfriend and I spend two nights in Chiang Rai. We wandered up and down the bar street a couple times then ended up at the Cat Bar. I have nothing bad to say - only good. Case in point: we went back our second night because we were positive nothing could top it and we didn't want to waste... More

We stopped in for a quick beer, and ended up staying until closing. The live band were ok, but when some customers joined them for a jam session, it turned in to a good night. Drinks prices are average for the area.

Dropped in for an afternoon beer or two and politely asked if I could use the free pool table. The answer was,"no." " it may scare away customers". Charming, not.
