HOBS – House of Beers – Rainhill

77 Sukhumvit Road, Klongtonnua, Wattana, Bangkok Thailand 10110



Open daily, from 11:00 am until 1:00 am

This is one of the six locations of entrepreneur Chris Foo’s HOBS empire.  It is located on the second floor of the Rainhill Mall on the corner of Sukhumvit Road and Sukhumvit Soi 47.  It is located directly above the Wine Connection wine bar and restaurant on the ground floor of the mall:

This mall is located off the sidewalk on the north side of Sukhumvit Road, pretty much equidistant – a bit less than ten minutes walk – from either Thonglor BTS Station, then walking west, or from Phrom Phong BTS Station, walking east.

From Phrom Phong BTS Station, take Exit 3 to street level, then double back to your right, to walk 60 meters to Sukhumvit Soi 39, and the on toward Soi 47.

From Thonglor BTS Station, head toward Exit 1, and then stay up on the Skywalk headed west, and at the end of the Skywalk, bear right and descend to street level, then walk straight ahead to Soi 51, and then on toward Soi 47.

Rainhill Mall sits on the northwest corner of  the Soi 47 intersection.  The entrance to the mall is 30 meters west of Soi 47:

Take the stone path to the escalators, and head up one level:

Then, double back to your left, and do what amounts to a 260 degree loop back around to HOBS.  In the photo below, you can see the  escalator column in the foreground, and HOBS in the background:


As you finish the loop, what you see is:

Enter the bar, and what you see is:

Looking away from the bar

A closer look at the bar:

They have ten rotating draft beers on tap, plus they have two dedicated taps – one for Stella Artois, and one for Brewdog Punk IPA.    When I last visited (May 2017), of the ten rotating taps., three were Hoegaarden variations, another three were Leffe variations.  One was Stella Artois – which made no sense, as they had a dedicated Stella tap.  The three remaining draft beers were:

They also have bottled craft beer – I estimated 100 or more varieties.  They also have an enormous collection of chilled serving glasses – seemingly one style of glass for every beer brand.   They seemed to offer a very good selection of beers.   The only noticeable gap was the absence of New Zealand beers:  I could see no Tuatara, 8 Wired, or Epic beers.   What made this strange was that one of the two Thai managers – Cody – is a dual citizen of New Zealand.   The other manager is reportedly Khun Goll.

The bar supervisor on my visit was Khun Ar.

The air-conditioned inside bar could seat about 50 patrons.  The exterior could probably seat 60 or more customers.

They have a full kitchen here, that serves an extensive menu. A couple of sample pages:

Smoking is only permitted in outside seating.

There was one video screen in the air -conditioned interior section, tuned to a sporting event.

They played pop music at a moderate level – not oppressive.

On -street parking is available on nearby Soi 47.

The bar has no toilets of its own.  The mall has toilets  – on the second floor, they are located at the rear of the mall – exiting the bar, turn hard right and walk back about 40 meters along the walkway between shops, pass in front of the elevators, and you will see:

Clientele at this bar is mostly Thais, but with some foreign expats.
