This bar is located in a shop-house space on Soi Sri Bumphen, and is about a 12-14 minute walk from the Lumphini MRT Station.
To reach this bar, travel to Lumphini MRT Station, and use Exit 2 to reach street level. Bear slightly left, and then straight along the sidewalk. Walk 100 meters to Sathorn Soi 1, and turn left. Walk 550 meters along Sathorn Soi 1 until you reach the “T” intersection with Soi Ngam Duphli. Turn left, and walk less than 100 meters to Soi Sribumphen, then turn right. Walk 160 meters, and I Hate Pigeons will be on your right. As you approach the bar, you will see its circular sign, framed by the signs for two different Italian restaurants:
Once you enter the bar, what you find is a very high-ceiling room, with a bar to the rear, overlooked by a balcony:
Another view, sans people, that better shows the balcony, and the seating along the wall, and at the bar:
Another angle, from which you can see the illuminated beer coolers behind the bar, as well as the black curtain at rear of bar, which covers the passageway entrance, back to the toilet :
This bar has four draft beers on tap, and perhaps 35 different bottled craft beers, in two coolers behind the bar:
The bar has one LCD video screen at head level at the rear of the bar, and it also has a HUGE projection screen above the windows that face the street:
There are seven chairs at the bar, three chairs along a counter that runs along the front windows, one large table for six in the middle of the room, and there are four tables along the wall next to the bar – each with four seats. Out in front of the bar is a small table for two, plus one table for six (shown below):
The music at this bar is played at moderate level, and the playlist is noticeably different than most other craft beer bars – it is edgy electro-pop. The owners play in a band, and have their own ideas about setting a different tone.
The toilet is at rear of the building – through a black curtain, and then off to your left. It is a six meter square room – nothing fancy, but serviceable and reasonably well-maintained.
The bar does not serve food, but they have no problem with you bringing food in, and they do have a menu from a nearby restaurant from which you can order dishes to be delivered to the bar. I tried ordering a seafood dish – scallops – and I was amazed at how quickly the food arrived – within ten minutes!
They have a standing monthly promotion – for August 2017, it looks like this:
I came on a very quiet Tuesday evening, so it was hard to judge clientele. The bartender, Khun Meow, indicated that clientele is roughly 80% foreigners, and 20% Thais – which surprised me. She also told me that they have a “film” night the second Thursday of every month – that is evidently the only time that they have seating at balcony level. Entrance fee on film night is 120 baht – but one draft craft beer is included at that price.
Smoking is permitted only in exterior seating. The bar has no parking – but there is a paid parking lot on Sathorn Soi 1, perhaps 500 meters from the bar.
