Cheap Charlies Bangkok is a small, understated bar near On Nut BTS Station on Soi 51. This is a quirky, cheap bar which is a must-visit when in Bangkok.
What is so great about Cheap Charlies Bangkok?
We love this bar!
The prices are good, with beer and mixers all costing just 80 baht. But there is more to the bar than the price. You sit on stools on a paved area outside the bar front, with the bar adorned with intricate, interesting and downright bizarre items that take over the bar.
Expect to see fairy lights dangling from animal skulls, a panda dangling from a tree branch, a Batman model peaking through the bottles and numerous road signs as well as a full model train, circling overhead on a track.
When can I visit Cheap Charlies Bangkok?
The bar is open from 5 pm to 10 am from Monday to Saturday every week. However, the bar is often closed during national holidays such as the Kings birthday.
Where is Cheap Charlies Bar?
The bar is a 5-minute walk from On Nut BTS station and opposite the parking lot of Tesco Lotus. When exiting On Nut, walk past Tesco and head down Sukhumvit 50.
On the right-hand side, you will see Rhythm Sukhumvit condos and a cluster of restaurants and bars next to this condo (also known as Beacon Place). As you walk through, Cheap Charlies is on the right-hand side, near a great pizza place.
There are lots of great bars in Bangkok and Cheap Charlie’s Bangkok is a favourite of ours! It is unique, cheap but the guy who runs the place is also really friendly and welcoming.
