tawan daeng isaan
Please refer to a previous post titled Isaan Tawan Daeng (May 16, 2011) — I won’t be offering too much more concerning it. I had made an even earlier post that was titled Tawan Daeng Isan back on July 28, 2010.
The apparently discontinued blog Behind The Noodle Curtain has a January 19, 2009, post I’ve not yet referred to titled Bangkok Tawan Daeng rock/showcase one of Thai trip highlights:
One of the highlights of my visit to Thailand is the time spent in the Thai rock clubs, particular Tawan Daeng (Red Sun), found in just about every big town. Popular too. Because the house plays Thai pop, rock and up-country music, the latter especially popular not only in Isaan (northeastern Thailand) but even in Bangkok, as discovered last Saturday night.
Another reference I did not cite was a thread begun July 11, 2007, on the Thai360 forum titled Luktung/Morlam venues in Bangkok? A post of the following day said this:
Tawan Daeng on Phattanakarn has life music every night. be careful as there are actually two Tawan Daeng just opposite each other. one is for Luk Thung/Morlam, the other for Phua Chivit (Carabao-style).
there is also a newer Tawan Daeng on Ram Intra road.
Suffice to say that the Tawan Daeng on Rama III is not the Tawan Daeng Isaan. Neither is the one near or on Ram Indra or Intra, which is apparently licenced as a restaurant and thus allows whole families (that is, it does not become an adult venue after 10:00 p.m.). Both of these places feature German beer.
The January 12, 2012, article on CNNGO titled Mor Lam and Luk Thung: A guide to Bangkok’s Thai folk music scene gives the address for the true Isaan club:
484 Pattanakarn Road, near intersection of Phetchaburi Road and Phra Khanon Road. +66 (0)2 717 2320. Open weekdays, 8 p.m.–midnight and 8 p.m.–3 a.m. on weekends.
Rong Lao Tawandaeng
Pattanakarn Road, opposite Isaan Tawandaeng. Open Monday-Friday, 8 p.m.–midnight, Saturday-Sunday 8 p.m.–2 a.m.
As the earlier quote from the blog Behind The Noodle Curtain indicated, there are other Tawan Daengs in other cities in Thailand, including cities in Isaan. I am editing this post on September 10 (2012). Just last month (August 7, in fact), someone on TripAdvisor posted an excellent overview of the various Bangkok Tawan Daengs, and even mentioned some of the others elsewhere in Thailand: Quest for the perfect Tawandang? It received considerable response.
A few further references to Tawan Daengs outside of Bangkok:

If there’s a single explanation for the present political upheaval in Thailand it could be that the level of economic development in the rural areas, and especially in Isaan, has fallen too far behind that of the cities.
