A party with a difference at DosBar
For those of us who can remember that far back, does the term ‘Mods
and Rockers’ bring back recollections? If it does, and if they are of the
‘Mod’ persuasion, then on January 23, there is an event which will
definitely be a ‘don’t miss’!
Dos Bar on Soi 6 off Nimmanhaeminda Road - spacious, airy and comfortable.
A newly-opened bar, restaurant and entertainment venue on Soi 6 off
Nimmanhaeminda Road seems to have become a rendezvous for lovers of Vespas
and Lambrettas, with a sprinkling of Honda 50’s and 100’s thrown in. This
coming Friday, DosBar will hold a Ska and Reggae party for riders of these
ever-popular machines, with a Best Scooter contest and lucky draw with lots
of prizes. It promises to be a great night, with music, good food, and the
added bonus of free whisky before 9.30 p.m.
DosBar, which opened two months ago, is a new concept in bar/eateries with a
difference - spacious but intimate at the same time, with tables well
spaced, serving Thai and a few farang dishes at very good prices and with a
mixed clientele. Décor is attractively modern, and the accent is on music
with 5 different bands on call after 8 p.m. every night. From 11 pm, also
every night, the focus is purely on reggae music.
The location is good, with unlimited, easy parking, and the whole place has
a good feel to it. Opening hours are 6 p.m. to 1.30 p.m., every night of the
So, if you’ve got a scooter - or even if you haven’t - go along on Friday
January 23, and have a great evening!
