Located in a cavernous former indoor car park, hidden inside a large building near the corner of Sukhumvit Road and Sukhumvit Soi 67.
From Prakhanong BTS, take Exit 1 to the left (west). At street level walk straight ahead 150 meters, past Taisin Square, to Soi 67. There is a Family Mart on that corner. Turn right, and you will see the scene below.
The bar entrance is located about 30 meters into the soi on the left side, as you enter off Sukhumvit (where red arrow is pointing).
Entrance is marked by just a small Wishbeer logo sign.
Bar entrance is through tunnel that used to allow automobiles to enter and depart the car park.
At the end of the tunnel is the smoking area, and then the bar entrance:

As of August 2018, Wishbeer Home Bar has approximate;y 36 beers on tap all the time – see current tap list at Wishbeer Home Bar – Beers on Tap
They occasionally also have additional taps off to the side, for a feature beer event, or a new beer roll-out.
The bar has three big double-wide coolers up front, offering perhaps 200 different beers. If you stand in front of the coolers, a service person will normally approach -and you can either name or point to what you want – or you can actually reach in and pull out the bottle or can that you want, and hand it to the sever. The sever will then go ring your purchase up, and bring you the bottle, with its matching serving glass, and let you pour your own beer. Later you can simply order another of the same beer by simply pointing out the bottle at your table to a service person.
Next door to the bar – accessible from the bar, and separated from it only by the toilet area- is a large warehouse featuring rack after rack of bottled beers – perhaps 300 different beers from 80 different breweries.
You may take away, or you may request home delivery. You may see the full collection of bottled beer selections available at https://www.wishbeer.com/en/
The bar area is reasonably clean and comfortable – but it is basically like a large barn or warehouse. The ceilings are perhaps 10 meters high – making the place very airy and open. Well air-conditioned.
Because of the large and dispersed seating area, it is pretty hard to come here alone, and strike up a conversation with strangers. This is a great place for a group beer call. The service staff is fairly stable, and they take especially good care of frequent repeat customers
They serve a free small dish of miniature pickles (!) to each customer, sometimes accompanied by a small dish of a strange sort of nut. There is a full kitchen here, and they serve a limited standard menu of bar snacks and mostly European dishes. They also have daily specials, posted on a blackboard, and sometimes on a placard at each table.
No smoking in the bar. Chairs and a table are positioned in the entrance-way tunnel, outside the main doors, to accommodate smokers.
Easy-listening pop music is played at moderate level – and normally does not interfere with conversation. They occasionally have live music – often on Friday evenings – a two or three piece ensemble, this sometimes gets a bit louder.
They sometimes have special events and contests – and – the Bangkok Beer Guru sometimes wins:
There are bright, reasonably clean toilets off a side hallway. But – the facilities are somewhat limited for such a large bar. On busy nights, there be a bit of a waiting queue.
There are no video screens – this is a place for conversation, not for watching TV.
There is no parking on site – but parking is available at Taisin Square, 75 meters from the bar – halfway to Prakhanong BTS Station. With a voucher from Wishbeer, you get two hours free parking at Taisin Square.
Happy Hour daily from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm – all draft beers are 200 baht – for a pint.
