#2 Hooters Bangkok
Location > Sukhumvit Soi 15
An American-styled bar with many branches in South East Asia, it boasts a party-like feel and subtle hints that would even make you hungry. The bar is dressed with sexy girls in white tops and orange shorts, sometimes breaking into a dance, almost flash-mob style. You will get a dedicated server for your table, English is pretty much spoken and the service is friendly and not too shabby.
The island bar situated in the middle of the bar is an attraction next to the sexy girls, surrounding the back bar are multiple TV screens that will broadcast Live Sports, making it the centrepiece during a big game.
The bar has two floors, and an alfresco area, which is usually packed with customers who prefer to smoke while drinking, and of course, people watch. The second-floor space is very well suited for private functions, birthday parties or even a corporate network event.
The crowd that you would be expecting here are middle-aged men, both locals and foreigners. Drink prices are pretty reasonable in the Nana area, with quite a selection of beers and even their own signature, Hooters Beer, served in a rather sexy mug.

With more than a few selections of beer on tap, plenty of bottled beers to choose from with reasonable prices in the Nana area. They have a signature beer, “The Drunken Leprechaun Lager”, also importing their Guinness all the way from Ireland, making it an almost authentic Irish Pub.
