Banana Bar is one of the best spots to stop for a drink on Soi Twilight. Busy early evening and again later in the evening, these bars get frequented before and after show times at the many male GoGo bars surrounding it.
Banana Bar has the cheapest beer on Soi Twilight with jugs of Chang prices at 180 Baht. Bottled beers and cocktails are rather expensive for Bangkok standards. It’s worth noting that this pricing is similar at all the beer bars on this street. Bottled beers are 120 Baht everywhere, for instance.
Banana Bar provides bar stool style seating facing towards the street. For people watching Banana Bar is the prime spot and can’t really be beaten. Everyone who comes in or out of the street will be walking past you.
The staff at Banana Bar are great. A collection of handsome guys that wait on you hand and foot. If you like any of them, buy them a drink and have a chat. Generally speaking, most of the guys here have excellent English. Unlike many of the bars, most of the boys who work here are actually Thai, with a couple of Laos boys mixed in.
Keep in mind this is a host bar. These boys want to take them home for money. If that’s something you wish to do, the bar fine to take a boy from work is 500 Baht. Average tip for a boys time back at your hotel room is 2000 Baht. Be sure to negotiate money before leaving with a boy to ensure no surprises later in the night!
