About The Pub Chiang Mai

The Pub – A piece of Chiang Mai History

Since the first landlord, Mike Tinker, there has been a succession of international Mine Hosts, from South Africa to Argentina and currently from UK in the shape of Grahame Quinn and his wife Tong (below). Both have been running The Pub since 2004 during which time it has gone from strength to strength

In 1969 the building which is now The Pub was initially intended to be a library, but ended up as a popular watering hole for the local tobacco dealers, many of South African origin. Although not quite the first expat bar in Chiang Mai, Gymkhana Club has that distinction, it is certainly the first pub, hence the name, ‘The Pub’. As there was only one it didn’t need any other name.

This description remains as valid now as it did then, the old creaking timbers are witness to fascinating tales of business ventures, intrigue, and local gossip supplied by expatriates, travelling people and in days gone-by, the world’s tobacco buyers who used to converge and converse around the intimate dark wood bar.

Newsweek: One of the World’s best bars

In 1986 The Pub was visited by the writer Eric Goodman who was writing an article for the Newsweek magazine on the world’s best bars. In the Article he wrote: “If the comfort of an English Pub appeals to you, then when visiting northern Thailand you must lounge around The Pub, an elegant British drinking room with a very Thai touch.”
