Fodor's Expert Review Zoe in Yellow

Chiang Mai Cocktail Lounges

An unsigned laneway just off Ratchaphakhinai Road in the Old City is a magnet for backpackers and rasta-Thais who gather nightly at the cluster of open-air or open-sided music bars, including Zoe in Yellow. Music tends to be DJs on deck spinning house, EDM, and trance music. Expect inexpensive beer and sugary cocktails. Babylon Bar and Roots Rock Reggae are also popular and will be equally full. The bars close at midnight.

The soi (lane) is difficult to find—the entrance is off Ratchaphakinai Road, one block north of Ratvithi Road.
