Lam Sing

Live Music in Thanon Sukhumvit

Even Ziggy Stardust–era David Bowie has nothing on this dark, decadent, rhinestone-encrusted den, one of Bangkok's best venues for mŏr lam and lôok tûng, music with roots in Thailand's rural northeast. Come for raucous live-music performances accompanied by tightly choreographed, flagrantly costumed backup dancers.

There's no English-language sign here, but most taxi drivers are familiar with the place.
