This bar, newly opened in December 2017, is a reincarnation of its earlier establishment, which was located only about 100 meters away , on the opposite side of the street.
This bar is located about a kilometer and a half walk from Hua Lamphong MRT Station. Exit that station using Exit 1, and proceed straight ahead for about 40 meters – curving a bit to the left. Then – at the very first “zebra” crossing that you come to, turn right and cross the street. You the need to continue straight. You will be crossing several streets and then crossing bridge, with traffic on your right, and a barrier to your left. If you look high up, you will be walking directly toward a towering hotel with the name “PRIME” clearly visible on the roof:
In the above photo, you will be walking to the left of the two streams of traffic. You will proceed on and cross the street that separates you from the hotel, which will look like this, at street level:
After you cross you will need to bear right, following the contour of the building, as it turns left.
After you curve left, you will come to a big intersection, with one road going sharply left, one road departing the opposite side of the intersection, and two roads off to your left front. You will need to cross the first road going sharply left, and as you do so you will then see:
You will need to cross to the large blue sign in the above photo, and proceed to the street where the red arrow is pointing. The blue street sign above here the red arrow is reads “Maitri Chit Rd” – and that is the road that you need to take, staying on the near side sidewalk. You will walk down that road for 450 meters, at which point you will reach a large traffic circle. What you will need to do is take your bearings, so that you can walk around to the the far side of the traffic circle, and then get back back onto the continuing projection of the same road. I suggest circling to the left.
You will want to circle on around until you get to the road that passes in-between the Goodyear and the Dunlop tire stores – where the blue arrow is pointing in the photo below:
Proceed down that road from the traffic circle; you will know that you are on the correct road if you are walking along a street lined with automotive tire shops. After you leave the circle, you will need to walk another 500 meters until you come to Luang Road, at which point you want to turn left.
From the corner of Luang Road, if you look across the street and farther down the street where you just turned, you will see Let The Boy Die – indicated by the red arrow in the photo below:

Once you enter the bar, you are in a large room. To your front are the taps, with the beer menu presented on an overhead chalk board:
They have twelve taps, virtually all of which are imported Thai expatriate beers. AS of January 2018, they offer no bottled beers.
The evidently have a kitchen, with the intention of serving light meals. At the time of my visit, they had no problem with visitors ordering outside food from a nearby Thai restaurant, which delivered to the bar.
The bar has mostly sturdy wooden tables with bench seating. There are five tables with bench seating for six persons, three tables with bench seating for eight persons, and two wide rails along opposite walls each with two stools.
There is also one large rail that pretty much divides the bar in half – it has seven stools on each side. In the photo below, you can see that central rail/table in the background
There is a large, rather macabre mural on one wall:
Toilets are to the right rear of the room, from the perspective of the bar’s front entrance. There is a “kitchen god” shrine, and a skull mural, in the alcove that leads back to the toilets:
The toilets are clean and well-maintained, with live plants “softening” the environment.
On one side of the room, there is a raised bandstand, and they do sometimes feature live music:
When I visited, they were playing current easy-listening Thai pop music at a background level. There are no video screens here. There is no smoking inside the bar. There is no parking readily available.
Two of the main owners – Piek and Avi – are still putting finishing touches in. They have plans to finish an upstairs room to be used for private events, and they are expecting to have the kitchen operational by mid-January.
All-in-all, this is a much more spacious venue that its predecessor namesake, with twice as many craft beers on tap. Khun Piek mentioned that they still own the original space across the street, and they are thinking of turning it into a small, cafe-style coffee shop.
