Small House Kafe
One of Chiang Mai’s long-running bastions for social expats, Small House Kafe made everyone sad when it shut its doors late last year and moved out of its former location off Huay Kaew. Thankfully, the beloved bar has now reopened in a new and more spacious venue hidden on a quiet soi off Huay Kaew Road, across from Kad Suan Kaew. Now Small House features a tree-lined outdoor patio, perfect for large groups sucking down bottles of Sangsom and beer. The pool table has returned, and the friendly owners often host special events and parties at the bar, as well as hip-hop nights every Friday. The “Kafe” in the name is a bit misleading, as the only food you’ll find served here is limes and cigarettes, but you are welcome to BYOF _ there’s a grill onsite for BBQ aficionados _ or order Thai delivery from the nearby Lemon Tree restaurant. Small House is a place where regulars congregate nightly and new faces are always welcome, kind of like the Chiang Mai expat version of Cheers, where everybody knows your name (or at least is willing to learn it).
