This bar is split between two adjoining shop houses on Soi Suan Phlu. The bar is about a 1.5 kilometer walk from Lumphini MRT Station. From that station, use Exit 2 – at street level, bear slightly left, and then straight, for a full kilometer. Along the way, you will pass Sathorn Soi 1, the American JUSMAG, the German and then the Australian Embassies, and the Sukothai and Banyan Tree Hotels. Just past the Australian Embassy, you will come to a Shell petrol station. 30 meters past this station, you will come to Soi Suan Phlu – where you must turn left. You then walk 400 meters down this Soi. When you see Suan Phlu Soi 1 across the street, look for a place to cross the street. Junker and Bar is on the south (opposite) side of the street, maybe 30 or 40 meters past Soi 1:
As mentioned, this bar is located in two adjoining shop houses, with no internal connection.
The side farthest from Sathorn can seat about 35 people, at eight tables.
It has one cooler containing about twenty different craft beers:
They have an annotated beer menu with the title “Brew Malls,” featuring details of one beer per page
The imported craft beers available here included Deschutes, Flying Dog, Bear Republic, Trappistes Rochefort, Kona, Bridge Road, And Union, Weihenstephaner, and Floris.
Each patron is served a small metal serving bowl of cheese/potato (or corn?) sticks:
They do have a kitchen here – on this first visit, I did not see the food menu, or order any food.
The room farthest from Sathorn had no video screen. It did have a dart board, and a pool table, that had a wooden table cover over it , transforming it into a six -person table.
The room in the building closest to Sathorn did have a video screen – and also a larger beer cooler, containing mostly Thai artisanal beers, including a VERY good house brand, brewed in Nonthaburi, by the bar owner’s brother: Pheebok Haunting Charming Pale Ale:
Interestingly, this bar also serves a Mexican Day of the Dead beer – “Queen of the Night Pale Ale”:
The beer cooler on this side is larger, and is decorated with the labels of the many different Pheeebok beers that pass through from time to time:
There is a toilet in the room closest to Sathorn, accessed via a door at the rear of the bar:
The toilet is pretty compact, and is nothing fancy – but it is clean and serviceable, and well-maintained:
The room closet to Sathorn Road can seat about 20 persons at tables, and another six at the bar.
Music here is some sort of modern genre – maybe house electro-pop, or something similar. Not unpleasant, but not familiar to me.
Indoors, clientele appeared to be almost all Thai. There is seating outside, in front of the two shop houses – a total of three tables, seating perhaps ten persons – and there were some foreign customers there:
The bar is owned by Khun Bard, whose daytime occupation is consulting in the hospitality sector.
