    nice interior, but the seating area outside is pretty cool too, nice place to watch the traffic and get choked on fumes

    That's the sister pub to Fresh Prince's The Roadhouse and he works there sometimes.

    Had a nice evening in there myself and had a braised beef meal which was out of this world. Apparently an Irish husband and wife team have been employed as head chefs and will train the Thais for 1 year. Nice bar and some nicer eye candy walking by.

    Good one Sunny!

    When I was there the Pub had not even officially opened yet and the 2nd and 3rd floors have to be completed. Even then the downstairs bar was 3/4's full and I predict a great future for this pisser.

    I believe it will officially open within this month and FP I am looking forward to a formal invitation!

    When I was there that front open air setting area was full of fairly young looking farang women and Princey and I had to sit right at the end near the carpark. I hope they get that sorted out real soon.

    Thats another plus for this bar as they seem to have arranged heaps of off street parking.

    Sunny mate, Please enlighten me as I lived in Ekkamai Soi 2 for near 10 yrs but when I was living there is was known as Sukumvit 63/2 and Soi 71 was known as Onnut.

    Did they change all the main Road numbers or were you a bit befuddled due to over imbibing or am I just a doddery old crunt not able to remember 5 years back?
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    Strange that.
    When I lived in Onnut it was Soi 77, and Phrakanong was Soi 71.

    Is there anything that sets it apart from the myriad of Irish pubs out there?

    Painting everything green and using some oldey-worldey celtic type font hardly makes it unique. The Stella and Heineken signs don't exactly scream Oirish either..

    I would question the location as it is a bit secluded from anything else nightlife wise. What punters are their target?

    At first I thought it may be the before club Thai crowd of Ekamai but there again all those bars/clubs are right at the other end and not sure they would be interested in a 'not another' Irish theme pub.

    Not intending to criticise just interested in the business plan

    Ps. I did pass it in a taxi last Saturday around 10.30pm and it seemed empty but maybe it is not fully open yet from the original posters comments.

    I think a bunch of us should kick in 1000 K a month to have a Teakdoor Pub and Grill in Bangers. If we had a 1000 members pay that a month it would cover the rent on a place and we could keep the food and drink costs low.

    There aren't really any pubs yet in that area but there are quite a few condo's and office buildings around there. There's also that new shopping mall, Park Lane, being constructed opposite which will also serve as a cut through to the next soi. Also there's another local expat favorite opening across the street which means more people in the area.

    There has been a lot of interest from people that work in the area who fancy a pint after work so things are looking good.

    The food. They are going for a classier menu than your average Irish pub. As mentioned both the chefs have been brought over from Ireland to set the place up, both are excellent chefs. They want to keep a few pub favorites on the menu but a lot of the dishes will be a bit more special. The full menu isn't finished yet, we are working on that so for now there is a small menu with plenty of specials on. Very reasonably priced as well.

    If you go to the website there's a page where you can download a 50% off food voucher. All TD'ers welcome to download and print it as many times as you like. I cant post a link coz I'll get in trouble with DD.
