From the heady and crazy days at its first home on Soi 22 The Moonshine Pub has been a favourite hangout for the expat community of Bangkok. When it moved to its ‘new’ home on Sukhumvit Soi 7 a few years ago the loyal customers followed.
It’s a warm, friendly place to while away a few hours in good company. The staff and pub-goers who make up the Moonshine family are always ready to welcome new members into the fold.
It’s also well-loved by foodies, thanks to the delicious and reasonably priced delicacies that come out of their kitchen.
It’s the place to be! See ya there!
