Loved this bar and it's staff. The owners are amazing, and the music is excellent. We just happened to walk by and were called in by a regular. Came back almost every night afterwards. Highly recommend this place if you're visiting Chiang Mai.

This has become one of my favorite bars. Lots of local expats. Staff are friendly. The owners Gun and Robin are fun people.

My wife and I have been to Sax bar on quite a few occasions. The service is friendly, the drinks are reasonably priced (my wife says it's the best G&T in Chiang Mai), and they play excellent music in the background. Highly recommended.

I have been to Sax Bar many times and it's got a real good vibe, the staff are friendly and the customers also. Good music and a pool table.

I know this bar now for over 12 years. Even management changed meanwhile not much has changed in there. A good place to meet tourists and/or expats. Lovely bar staff and really good music. I love this place!

For up to 5 years this has been my favourite music pub in central Chiang Mai. Great atmosphere, sometimes party-like, other times a nice hang-around place for listening to rock and pop music. Easy to meet people, a mixture of expats, tourists and Thai affiliates....More

Pretty disappointing. I thought this would be a cool music bar but it turned out to be just another standard hole-in-the-wall beer bar. Central, but nothing special.

Sax Bar has been one of my favorite bars in Chiang Mai for many years. They've always served up great drinks and have tons of music that the owners let you chose from. Convenient central location on the west entrance of Tha Pae Gate. Highly...More
