BANGKOK — Bad news for the nighthounds of Ekkamai who will have to say goodbye to a vibrant venue for fine cocktails and local gigs: Moose Bangkok is closing for good.

A hangout known for local music and the stuffed animal head – not moose but deer – hanging over the bar, the restaurant bar has announced it will be close its doors.

Owner Kongpol Chuanprateep, who opened the bar four years ago with folks from former beloved venues Cosmic Cafe and Sonic Bangkok, said he was getting out of the nightlife business “because I’m worried about my health.”

Join the home of signatures cocktails such as the Ekamai Jungle and Moose Baron for a farewell party with indie darlings Yellow Fang, progressive punk trio Plot and dream-poppy Fwends.

The bar’s electronic vibes will be set in motion by Gorn Clw and solo sound artist The Black Codes.

After midnight, DJ Kova O’Sarin will go scratchy and spinny on the decks.

Admission is 200 baht and includes one drink. The party starts at 7:30pm on Sunday.

Moose Bangkok is located on Soi Ekkamai 20 (Soi Chaem Chan).
