A Chinese-themed bar that’s worth a return to Soi Nana
Pijiu, which means “beer” in Chinese, is the newest brainchild of the guys behind craft beer importing pioneer Beervana. Located a few steps away from Teens of Thailand, this Thai-Chinese shophouse is decorated much like a hotel lobby bar in 1950s Hong Kong. Think soft lighting, wall lamps, candlelight and a huge glass wall.
Despite the Beervana connection, you can also finds selections outside of the brand’s portfolio. Five taps on regular rotation offer imported brews like Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Tuatara Weiz Guy Hefeweizen and Epic Brewing’s Los Cosos Mexican-style lager. Bottled labels afford more options including the recently legalized Happy New Beer from Khao Yai. Prices are at B280/pint on average.
Bar snacks are pretty limited but is expected to expand in the next few months. In the meantime, busy yourself with the Chinese Cold Cuts (B400), a platter that puts together shrimp crackers, smoked duck, kun chiang (traditional Chinese sausage), moo wan (sweet pork with coriander and spices), Chinese sausage with duck liver and smoked pork belly. A chef’s table-style restaurant will soon open on the second floor.
Catch their daily happy hour (6 to 8:30pm), which offers pints at B200.
