From Thonglor BTS Station, head initially for Exit 2 – but stay up on the Skywalk, and proceed toward Noble Remix Condominium. The Skywalk will turn left toward the condo – go down that walkway, and at the end turn right, down the stairs to the sidewalk. Walk straight ahead 125 meters to Soi 34. Turn left, walk 50 meters into the soi – Bottles of Beer will be in a shop house on your right, with a huge red and white sign marking the building. The view from the corner of Sukhumvit and Soi 34:
This bar is spotlessly clean, very compact and cozy. You are pretty much at arms length from beer, any place you sit. Cold beer in coolers lines one side of the room. On the other side, there are snacks for sale, and they also offer boutique spirits, arranged on shelves. Don’t miss the star of the show, “Mr. Khao Neow” – the feisty little house chihuahua who prowls the premises continually.
Main serving area has three small two-person tables, plus a long central counter with 14 bar stools.
They have the ability to serve an overflow crowd in a room on the second floor, but this is rarely used.
The bar is owned and manged by Ruan, from Singapore. In the photo below, Ruan is at left.
An August 2018 update: This bar now has a full kitchen menu – and the food is excellent (and is served astonishingly quickly) –Meat Pan Food Menu at Bottles of Beer. Also, the bar has recently added four taps of draft craft beer, from a tap system located just inside the bar entrance.
They occasionally run events and competitions here – with beer and shirts as prizes:
There is one toilet – small, clean , well-lit -that is located under the stairs leading to second floor.
No smoking inside. They do have several chairs outside the front entrance, where you can smoke – and bring your drink with you, if you wish.
They have about 200 different beers available – all at arms length. You can walk the cooler line, and if you see a beer you want, you notify the staff – who then retrieves an appropriate chilled glass, brings the beer and glass to your seat, pops the beer cap, and pours your beer. You may also take away beers – they offer various discounts for small bulk purchases.

They normally do not serve any free bar snacks.
Easy-listening pop music is played at a very subdued, background level.
No dedicated parking, but you can park along Sukhumvit Soi 34.
Staff is very helpful in listening to your preferences, and then recommending beers that meet your description.
Very friendly place – the layout encourages visitors to strike up conversations.
There is one video screen, but that is normally not hooked up to any outside connection – it seems to just be used to sometimes show music videos This is a place for conversation, not watching sports.
Clientele is s mixture of professional level Thais and foreign expats, with an occasional tourist thrown in.
Free Grilled Chicken on Tuesday. After you buy 6 bottles of beer, get for free half of a tasty Chicken, served at the bar.
