There are a number of good places in Korat where you can enjoy a few cold singha beers or a bite to eat with fellow expats. Some special events are also organized at these watering holes and these include weekly quiz nights, dart tournaments and football nights.
If you are visiting Korat and would like to go out at night then please do visit some of the excellent bars listed down below. You will certainly have a great time!
The newest place in town is The Ram which is located next to the Sabai hotel. This British pub offers drinks are very affordable prices and they also offer a great selection of pub food. A quiz is organized every Wednesday night and many local expats attend this event. There is also a proper pool table, large screen televisions and a dart area at this bar in Nakhon Ratchasima.
George and Dragon
One of the most established expat hang outs is the George and Dragon which is located in a side street located off the central square. It also offers some decent English pub style food including fish and chips. If you fancy a game of pool then please note that there is also a good pool table at the George and Dragon.
Sports and Cocktail
The Sports and Cocktail bar is a long time favorite Korat bar among the local expat community and was started by Paul and his charming wife. It has recently been sold to Jason and I am looking forward to see what he will do with this watering hole. There are a number of televisions showing various live sports and there is also a pool table. There is also a basic but good food menu and an excellent selection of local and foreign drinks.
This place is more of a restaurant however many locals visit the Pizza shop as they can enjoy a few nice drinks on the terrace outside. It is located in the center of town and is located only a short distance up the road from the George and Dragon pub. The Pizza shop has the best food menu of all the different Korat bars and it includes excellent pizzas, Swedish meatballs and a wide range of Thai dishes.
