The Saxophone Pub and Restaurant

One of the city's oldest live music venues, Saxophone delivers a great assortment of tunes, jazz, folk, blues, Latin – every night of the week
3/8 Victory Monument, Phyathai Rd., Bangkok, Thailand

The Overview

The Saxophone Pub and Restaurant has been serving up great jazz, blues and Thai food since 1987. The spacious, two-floor pub, tucked away in small soi right beside the Victory Monument Skytrain Station, can accommodate a few hundred people. In a city where karaoke is king, and notoriously poor for live music, Saxophone is a sounding board for a gamut of genres. The first act, from 7:30pm to 8.30pm is often a solo acoustic show of folk music. After that make way for a blues or jazz act from 9 until 11:30pm. For the final set, from midnight until 1:30am there's often some rocking blues. Over the course of the average month there's quite a few guest stars, playing Latin jazz, like Siam Cubano, or the Emergency by Lek T-Bone, one of Thailand's most enduring reggae acts. The beers are not cheap but there is no cover charge. And they also have a wide range of pretty decent Thai dishes with a smattering of Western favorites.
