Fat Fest 11

In what has become a Bangkok tradition, Fatty’s Bar and Diner celebrates its 11th anniversary with the two-day musical Fat Fest 11 June 9-10.

The famously grungy space in Rama 9, Fatty’s Fat Fest 11 be offering a limited, picnic-style food menu in a mostly Wisconsin style: bratwurst, hot dogs, chili, and tacos with potato salad, coleslaw, and a few other sides. You’ll also find beer specials and chugging contests.

More than 20 bands are lined up to play at the festival, which is free with no cover charge.

Fatty’s mostly flies under the radar but boasts a loyal following and has a strong sense of community, plus a rock vibe offering one of the most legit live music venues in Bangkok.

Fatty’s serves all-American junk food from burgers to buffalo wings  and to hot dogs at reasonable prices.
