Oh @ Ton Igern

Ton Igern is one of the best kept secrets in Korat. It is a smallish semi open air venue, it's actually all open air but their are various roofs covering the different areas so don't worry, you won't get wet. It is situated just down from the Punjadara Hotel, across the railway tracks and on the corner on the left. 

It offers three acoustic acts every evening apart from on Monday when it's closed. The first of these is Taam who plays from 8:00pm till 9:00pm, followed by the bar's owner Oh from 9:00pm till 10:00pm and finally Nueng from 10:00pm till midnight.

Oh plays a variety of folk and country songs. Playing a number of songs by the likes of Pu Pong Sit, Moo Pongthip, Maleehaunna, Carabao, and Carawan. 

English langue songs are few and far between but you may catch excellent versions of Started with a joke by the Bee Gees, Heart of Gold by Neil Young, Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton and a not so excellent, version (but fair play there isn't really an excellent version in existence) of Happy Birthday.

He's an excellent performer with a very emotional voice, he sings every song from the heart, so even if your Thai language skills aren't the best you will still feel the emotion and probably get the rough meaning of the songs from his performances.

So, if your not in the mood for the full on sound levels that a lot of Korat's Nighclubs specialise in and just want some good food, bohemian atmosphere, a cool drink and to listen to some quality acoustic performers than you won't find a much better venue than Ton Igern.

Very Highly recommended.

Ton Igern is situated across the railway track from The Punjadara Hotel.
