This is a recent addition to the community of craft beer bars and restaurants in Bangkok – it opened around September 2019. It is located on a branch of Ratchadapisek Soi 3 that runs parallel to the main Ratchadapisek Road, basically behind the Chinese Embassy. Approaching the bar from the passageway that runs underneath the Tesco Lotus at Fortune Town, it is on the left side of the road, about 200 meters north of Tesco-Lotus:
When the bar is open, here is the view from the roadway in front of the bar:
Once you enter the venue, the main bar is straight ahead:
It is run by Thai partners Mr. Tar and Ms. Fon – both of whom are employed during day-times as technical engineers. They learned how to brew beer at Chit Beer (see https://bangkokbeerguru.com/city/pakkred/listing/chit-beer/ ), and they locally produce their own brand of craft beer – the brand-name is CR Beer.
They brew a total of twelve different craft beers, details of which can be seen at http://www.cr-beer.com/our-premium-beers/ At any one time, they typically have six of these selections available, on draft. Current offerings are listed on a sign that sits atop their bar:
The taps are behind and slightly below the bar:
From the bar, looking toward the entrance from the road, the view looks like this:
They serve a range of western food offerings:
Their tea and coffee selection is fairly extensive:
The pub can seat about 40 people, across a number of different seating arrangements:
They normally have a modern pop music play list playing at modest volume. On Fridays and Saturdays, they normally have a couple of musicians playing live:
They have one video screen, which can play an assortment of different views – news, YouTube, sports, etc.
They do appear to play darts here:
Parking is available along the street outside, or can be accomplished at the Fortune Town Tesco Lotus – which is located about 150 meters away.
There is a toilet accessed via an outside passageway that may be accessed via a glass door near the street side of the seating area:
Pass through the door, then turn left, and walk about twenty meters along an outdoor hallway/passageway (but which has overhead cover), to the end of the hallway. Then, enter to the left, through a doorway, into a fairly large room. Look to the far right, and you will see one closed doorway, which opens into the toilet – which has one urinal, and one sit-down toilet – plus a hand-washing sink. It is all quiet tidy and well-maintained.
If you wonder about the bar name – where did it come from? – there is a simple answer (courtesy of the Alan Parsons Project): Eye In The Sky
Service is very good here, and prices are very reasonable. Both Khun Tar and Khun Fon speak English quite well, and most signs and menus are written in English. Most customers appear to be Thai, but foreigners are welcome to attend – and are well treated.
