In Sakon Nakhon, you can try the karaoke bar inside the MJ Hotel. But if you prefer to listen instead of sing, you still have options. Toon Army Bar offers a live band and a friendly atmosphere. A more dance-oriented vibe is at the Golden Pond Disco just around the corner from Toon Army Bar, but you’re likely to find it rather crowded with local students. Welcome Bar is on the same street as Golden Pond, and is targeted slightly more to the western visitor. If you like live rock, specially Thai Rock, why not head to the Tawan Daeng with excellent singers. Finally, check out Mak Mi Sigh Tan country music bar for more live band enjoyment.
Many of us have the habit of looking for a pub or nightclub sometime after dinner is done. While Sakon Nakhon is not known as a party town, don’t give up all hope. There’s always a place to find an open bar stool, a live band, and a cold drink.
