Afterskool bar

Afterskool bar Soi Cowboy Bangkok

Afterskool bar is one of the best known, and certainly most notorious bars in Soi Cowboy. Perhaps even in the whole of Bangkok. It is located about half way down Soi Cowboy, on the left hand side is walking from the Asoke end. In between Lighthouse and Fannys bar.  You do need to look UP for the sign as one sign over the bar still says Sunshine Bar. It has been this way for years; allegedly something to do with crazy signage laws. It is one of the oldest bars on Soi Cowboy. You can see on their website that they claim they have never re-decorated to maintain its original feel although that does sound more like an excuse than a good reason.

There is a decent sized outside area where you can drink, watch the world go by or have a good look at the girls outside Spice Girls and Suzie Wong on the other side of the road. Indoors it is a long but very narrow single unit bar. Other websites incorrectly describe Afterskool as a “gogo bar” – it is not! It is a bar with a couple of very small stages and poles set against one wall.

You probably wonder why we say it is rather “notorious”. There are two reasons for this statement! Firstly it is the home to the famous “naughty boys corner” at the very far end of the bar. We will leave this to your imagination but suffice to say pretty much anything goes there. Secondly it has the reputation for drinks gouging. not only are the girls here experts at getting you to buy drinks but also all their buddies too. They also practice the “double lady drink” so after you have succumbed to the “buy me tequila” pleas they turn up with said tequila PLUS one coke in a separate glass and you get charged for both. if you keep your wits about you it is a LOT of fun, and probably why it is so popular with expats who know the score. If you are not careful however you can end up with some enormous bills here. That said it is our favourite bar on the Soi – just be careful.

It opens earlier than most bars at 5 pm until 03.00
