The North Gate Jazz Co-op is hands-down the coolest place on earth. This little creative space fills up with locals and foreign groovers who come to witness magic in its musical form. The mojitos here are the best in Thailand, and when they’re accompanied by deep base, sexy saxophone and bongos, you’re guaranteed a delightful evening. Two bands play a night and Tuesdays are open mike and crazy jam seshes. When the place gets packed, little timber stools scatter the footpath outside and a dance circle is created wherever you fancy.
