    Do you have a local pub/bar?

    Just wondering how many people have a local pub/bar that they are a regular at?
    Where you go in a few times a week and know all the other regulars


    As much as I go out, I don't have a regular bar.
    I have a few where I go every once and awhile and know the bartender.

    But, although I like chatting with other customers, a lot of times if I go out solo I usually just want to chill at the bar and sort of be on my own.

    I have a pub I go to right by my place, Ash stayed there last year.
    I go there at least once a week, usually to have their great steak and a few beers

    Lots of regulars in there but I like bopping around to different places

    I have a couple here in Lamai.....

    Kelly's for sports and a chat with the lads

    Chill Inn....a bar on the beach (down near where you stay) attached to a backpackers hostel...its owned by a couple of mates and a great place for a sundowner or a start to a night out

    I have one that we go to most Fridays or Sunday afternoons sometimes both days. Its called the Oyster bar and walking distance from my place. We know the staff and a lot of our friends hang out there. But its a quite place good for a catch up and chat with friends or a pre dinner drink before going out to eat. They have someone singing on a Sunday arvo.

    We also have a Irish pub called Murphy's that we go to if we want a night out. They have live music and its a bit more lively. Murphy's is a great place to people watch but if you are single you get hit on all night by fat drunken aussie chics 40+ ...........I'm scared of that place if I'm without my wife..........555

    I think most have heard of Divers Bar now on Bang Tao Beach. Always some one to chat with and have a few cold ones as the sun slides into the Andaman.

    I live in the city now, so Belgium beer cafe and the Petition are my usual spots. I'm a block away from an Irish pub but it's a bit dark and depressing for my taste, but it's only a five minute walk down the street to nicer places so I go a bit further.

    Belgium or the BBC as I call it is where I'm sat at the moment.



    I'll be heaving a couple more with friends here in a bit.







    During the week my usual watering hole is an underground Irish joint called 43 Below. It's really warm and cosy during winter, so we call it the man cave. I go there to catch up with travellers, SEA punters and various other interesting characters. Have made great contacts here during the years.

    In Tha Mai - the town with no beer ... no bar, a few of the small restaurants do serve beer; no 'pubs' that we go to in Chanthaburi but some ok restaurants with bars, Tamajun has Erdinger Dark on tap, a rare treat in the world of Chang, Leo and Singha

    Such is life ...

    I told you not to drink so much...555

    The first pic is the old State tax office. Have they got a pub in there now?

    43 Below has been a favorite of mine since 1973. have they gone "Irish" now?
    Used to be known as the "Alhambra Bars" a great place to go for a few lunchtime beers to see you through to home time...555

    Vancouver is the biggest fad city I've ever seen

    The nee fad is Poke.....it literally exploded from basically none to one on every few blocks in just the late year.

    I love it.... it's healthy and really good

    Yeah old treasury building. They have a dozen taps there now and a wine room as well. I dig.

    43 has been owned by an Irish bloke for a long time now.
