The Bangkok Chess Club meets every Tuesday evening at The Bull’s Head Pub & Restaurant on Sukhumvit Soi 33/1 – just round the corner from Phrom Phong skytrain station (take exit 5 and turn into the lane beside The Robin Hood pub). Players begin to arrive from 6:30pm and tournaments usually begin at about 8:00pm. With over 200 active players of every standard from beginners to masters, you are bound to find players to give you a good game – all are welcome. And it is free (though nobody would object if you bought the organiser a drink 😉 )
If you’re new to Bangkok, the Bull’s Head is one of the longest established English pubs in town, with a charismatic manager (Billy), excellent service and that famous British pub food (great steaks), popular with expats (perhaps because of that cute waitress with the silky black hair). They are also shortlisted for the World’s Best British Pub! You can find more information at their website
The Bangkok Chess Club also meets every Friday evening at Woodstock Bar and Grill. Great food and special prices on the drinks. Take the skytrain to Thonglor station, and then bus, motorcycle, taxi or a good walk to Thonglor Soi 13: Woodstock Map. You can find more information at their website.
