The first themed English pub in Bangkok, Witch’s Tavern is located in one of the trendiest place here in Thailand. More than 25 years of service, this pub is considered as one of the most popular go to places among Bangkok expats for it’s live music performances, special offers and happy hours. From their free pizza Fridays, to the vastly popular ladies night on Wednesdays, they sure know how to draw their patrons in.
Witch’s Tavern which was established 1988, undergone extensive renovation transforming it to a huge themed modern English pub. Decorated with Victorian portraits, gothic candle lights, dusk wooden beams and floorboards all throughout the walls make the whole experience flash back through the medieval period. Upon Entry, there is a witches pentagram painted on the wooden floor while clouds and bird cages dangle above the center of the main bar with two large trees rise up behind the main bar up to the second floor balcony. A spiral staircase separates the first and the second level where you will find exquisite marble tables, Victorian chairs and an English fireplace, which will definitely set the medieval ambiance. Also on the second floor, you will find the wine bar and a pool table to keep customers entertained.
