If you are looking for a hip version of a traditional Thai bar, this happening joint in bohemian Soi Nana in Chinatown will ensure you hae a great evening. Set et inside of a traditional two-storey Chinese shophouse, with mood lighting and tatami cushioned floor tables to relax on upstairs, Tep features all the accoutrements of a northeastern lively Thai bar experience; there is homemade yaa dong (Thai white spirits), although here it's a smooth palatable tasting set, plus there are Thai sharing plates if you are hungry. Weekends brings a lively crowd in, and there is live traditional music with Thai cymbals, drums, and xylophones, and the place really gets thumping. The crowd is mostly Thai, but there are enough foreign faces that you won't feel like an outcast, and everyone is very welcoming. It's a great spot for experiencing an authentic Thai night out in a very comfortable environment.
- Best Nightlife: "The easiest way to get here is to take a cab from the Hualamphong MRT station, otherwise it is a 10-15 minute walk along Charoenkrung Road over to Soi Nana. The bar is tucked away in a side alley just down the soi."
- Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: For a cool and traditional Thai night out, you can't top Tep Bar.
