“Entertaining night out”
A short taxi ride away from Asok BTS station lies this enormous German beer house that brews its own beers. Our food (pork knuckle, various spicy salads, fresh oysters) was pricey but tasted well, our big towers of lager beer tasty. The dark beer was so-so.
Being a Tawan Daeng (red sun), the place is a big, dark barn with wooden furniture and a continuous stage show. The performance varied from veteran Thai singer Chanchana and a series of young male and female singers with lots of dancers to a drinking game and tacky dressed-up performers. Unfortunately they didn't play many songs-for-life (Thai country songs), normally the signature music in Tawan Daengs, although most songs were Thai. The audience distributed their 100-baht bills to the performers generously, and eventually started dancing along creating a great atmosphere.
