The Fat Cow is a small corner bar at Lad Phrao in Bangkok, that has received notable success for a few different reasons. Part of the success is because they are serving Thai Craft Beers that come in “limited editions”, but also because they have no international craft beers and, of course, for their delicious burgers.
It’s a small place so it can get very crammed at times. It’s a bit of a place that is either too busy or too quiet. Nevertheless, I have always enjoyed my time at the Fat Cow, the owner Manuel is also very friendly. If you’re looking for staff that are very knowledgeable about Thai Craft Beers, you should maybe not visit when Manuel isn’t there, but even his regular staff are slowly learning the drill.
Prices at this place are very reasonable for Bangkok standards. Most Thai Craft Beers on tap can be had for 160-200 baht.
Manuel, the owner of The Fat Cow has also recently opened a Thai Craft Beer bar at Petchaburi road, called The Fat Cow on the Roof (Update, it has changed owners since of October 2018), it has a similar selection of food and beers, but a rooftop view is always a nicer view than looking at Lad Phrao road in rush hour. The Fat Cow is truly one of the OG bars staying true to the craft beer scene in Bangkok. I highly recommend.
Location: Corner of Ladphrao soi 15
