Mango Bar is a new gay bar in the Kalare Night Bazaar off Chang Klan Road. Opened last month by Khun Ice, Mango Bar is situated in the same row of bars as Orion Bar and it follows a similar concept as a friendly beer bar.

Kalare night bazaar is located on the east side of Chang Klan Road (the main street market with all the vendor stalls) near the Porn Ping Hotel. The easiest way to find the bars is to take Chareonphrathet Soi 6 to the side of the Kalae Night Bazaar, then enter opposite the Indian restaurant Le Spice.

Metro Bar

Meanwhile, the recently re-opened metro bar has abruptly closed its doors. Khun, Jay, who had been running Metro with the help of some very sweet staff, cited being too busy with other business activities as the reason.

With Spirit House having closed and the Garden Bar not receiving the patronage it used too, Metro was a good place to go for a drink or snack before the show at Adam’s Apple Club. Hopefully, someone else will quickly take over.

Upcoming events and gay parties

Next week on Saturday 13th there are a couple of gay parties in town: The snow boy party at Adam’s Apple Club and a Crazy Hats Party at Soho Bar. Ram bar will be holding a special christmas event n 25th December – details to follow.
